Song of the Day: Longtime by Ash Grunwald

Longtime gets started pretty quickly. I think there’s like one second of introduction then the whole thing kicks in pretty swiftly. It takes about the same amount of the time to be immersed in the track. Ash Grunwald does a great job. (more…)

Song of the Day: Taking Me Back by The Common

Well isn’t Taking Me Back a moody little song.

Actually, I guess moody isn’t really the right word. This makes it difficult to explain. I suppose what I mean is that there’s a certain mood, a certain atmosphere created by The Common on this track….and yet atmospheric isn’t quite right either. (more…)


Song of the Day: Blown Away by Sivert Hoyem

One of the reasons I’ve chosen this song is because of Sivert Hoyem’s voice. It’s rich and deep and just absolutely amazing. It’s a hard voice to match and I’m not sure many guys can. I think the acoustics of the venue also has a part to play in it as he has this vibrato to his voice that just echoes pleasantly.

He kind of sounds a little like Nick Cave, or at least he reminds me of him. (more…)


Song of the Day: Take it Slow by Tapioca and The Flea

Well isn’t this just a catchy and addictive song.

Take it Slow by Tapioca and The Flea is a sort of unique track that sounds like it has been around for ages. When I was playing it someone said it reminded them of The Pet Shop Boys, and I disagreed because I simply don’t like them. There is an artist that this track reminds me of but I just can’t put my finger on who it is. (more…)


Song of the Day: Time by Rigbi

Rigbi is the culmination of several artists who experienced the music industry and in the end were drawn together to create this band. I was sent and email for a cover that they did of Let’s be Still by The Head and The Heart. But me being me I couldn’t resist a look at their other offerings and came across Time. (more…)


Song of the Day: Left to Survive by The Corduroy Suit

There’s something enticing about this band. I think it’s the 80s type of feel it has and perhaps the unique tone to the lead singer’s voice. Whatever it is, it was hard to resist.

I think, by now, you’ve probably figured out that I’m a sucker for a good voice. That was definitely one of the reasons I snagged on this track. (more…)
