I’ve been on a major Delta Spirit binge lately (again). This track on their latest self-titled release has been really hitting me hard lately. It’s a gorgeous tune with some really heartfelt lyrics…
“Drug in by the rain, all the crooked ways I think
A wish as in a mood to die
But life, it is good, no matter how far you sink
Sometimes sitting still is better than to drop
When you’re down in a hole
When your heart’s weighed down like gold
There is a hand that can reach you there”
The more I listen to the latest Iron & Wine release, the more I love it. This song is so playful and beautiful and the music video is a work of art that really adds to the experience:
Hear the entire new Iron & Wine album, Ghost On Ghost, TONIGHT at 9PM – it’s mvyradio’s album of the week!
Iron & Wine
We’ve been playing this single at mvyradio and it’s really been growing on me as I hear it more and more. There’s a lightness to it that’s perfect for summer. Today I checked out the music video and I’m so glad I did! It’s extremely cute and funny…makes me want to dig deeper into this Austin-based band’s catalog.
This 19-year-old singer-songwriter from England just released his debut, self-titled album and this is the single. What a voice!
“When U Love Somebody”
Eric Johnson used to play guitar for The Shins, but since 2001 he’s been putting out music with his band Fruit Bats. I’ve been a huge fan of the latest albums from this group, especially their 2009 release The Ruminant Band. But leave it to Pandora to introduce me to this song from the 2003 Fruit Bats album, Mouthfuls. There are just a few simple lyrics, but it’s an extremely strong track that I’ve been thinking about all day since I heard it.
“Baby remember on the bus and my hand was on your knee
When you love somebody it’s hard to think about anything but to breathe.
Baby I am the cub that was washed out in the flood.
When you love somebody you bite your tongue all you get is a mouthful of blood.”
“High School Lover”
Great catchy tune from this Cali band…love the cute video for it too:
Four weeks ago today, the Boston Marathon bombings captured the nation’s attention. Local singer/songwriter Alex Karalekas was inspired to write this song after he heard about bombings. He recorded the tune here on Martha’s Vineyard at The Print Shop.
