WEEKENDS ARE FOR SINGLES!: When the night is over and you want to come down edition…

A regular feature: Single songs and covers I’ve heard lately, usually submitted to me, that you need to get your ears on.  Pronto!

Tonight, a focus on the mellow and slow and sweet. Let’s start with a gal named Lemon, who has made a tight little tune…

Okay, this cut isn’t mellow in the same way as Lemon, but it’s slow for grimey rap. I swear Action Bronson is the second coming of Ghostface.

And speaking of slow-moving hip hop, just when I thought I’d heard enough covers of Kanye West’s Runaway, I heard this one. Fire.

Wilde Music covers Snow Patrol. I really like the complexity of the beats and breaks. It seems really simple until you really listen to it.

MASON JAR MUSIC-Decoration Day Volume 4

As always, it’s free. The new compilation from Americana analog label Mason Jar Music. Standout tracks: Cassandra Jenkins’ “Spirit,” which is inspiring me to go buy her album; LA Freeway by Roseann Cash (I thought I’d already heard the definitive version when I heard Bill Hearne’s version, but this one is even better); and Cory Chisel doing Bring it on Home to Me.

But seriously, this Cassandra Jenkins gal is fantastic.  Find more of her music here–including the cover of Wild Word that I embedded below.

WEEKENDS ARE FOR SINGLES: Lots of people love Talking Heads covers, and more!

A regular feature: Single songs and covers I’ve heard lately, usually submitted to me, that you need to get your ears on.  Pronto!

Lots of people cover the Talking Heads. Because they were awesome. Throw this one on the pile. It’s cool.

And speaking of The Talking Heads, Father John Misty released an awesome cover Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs. This song always gives me chills.

The new album from All Walls is really, really, really good. Check this out.

I also liked this Fraser Gorman jam. Very sweet and mellow.

Lots of people like the Indigo Girls. I don’t, but lots of people do. So this is for them…
