Patty Griffin and Robert Plant - “Ohio” (by KUTX Austin)
Her new album American Kid is a masterpiece and I haven’t stopped listening to it every day since it was released.
Patty Griffin - Wild Old Dog (Bing Lounge) (by KINK Radio)
God is a wild old dog,
Someone left out on the highway.
I seen him running by me,
He don’t belong to noone now.

Listen with headphones. My reaction to this was “oh my god”.
Forgive me, I’m in the shit this afternoon, but Brad’s mom drove Brad, Ryan, and me to Chicago to see this show at what was then the New World Music Theatre and she sat in the car out in the parking lot the whole time and, it’s just, can you fucking believe this ever happened? Prick opened for Christ’s sake. There was no break between NIN and Bowie, they just all came up and joined like Voltron to play a few songs together and then Bowie took over and played for two hours. I wish I had a way of comprehending it all in the moment.
“Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” by Amercia
Originally by Sophie B. Hawkins
AMERCIA are Emelie Norenberg and Gustaf Törling, and behind the squall, you’ll find the Sophie B Hawkins classic “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover”. The vocals are distant, ghostly, but there’s still urgency. “Unique” gets thrown around a lot, but I think they’re on to something here…
Remember the 90s? Cause this cover is SEX.

ÓLAFUR ARNALDS - “A STUTTER” (FEAT. ARNOR DAN)
I am entirely blown away by Arnalds’ new album “For Now I Am Winter”. There is not one weak or mediocre track to be found on it. My gut feeling tells me that this might be one of the big things to happen this year. Listen to “A Stutter” and Arnor Dan’s great voice and you will know what I mean.
Nina Simone sings “Images,” original lyrics from William Waring Cuney’s poem “No Images.” Yesterday was the birthday of Nina Simone, a singer and civil rights activist. Ebony discusses casting Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone in an upcoming biopic. Plus, more poems for Black History Month.
Last night as a break from production work I’ve been doing, I decided to cover my good friend Adam “Kindness” Bainbridge’s song “Cyan”. I used drum elements from “Everything Is Embarassing”, then I invited my friend Tracy Antonopoulos (From the band Cable) round to come and sing some backing vocals.
Here’s the end product, enjoy!
Oh. Oh my.
