Father John Misty – Do You Realize?  (Flaming Lips Song)


Deer Tick Covering Warren Zevon…

And apparently LSD.

Deer Tick – Play It All Night Long


Edward Sharpe Cover

One of the best parts of youtube is not viral videos like the evil chipmunk or chocolate rain, it’s the ability for people to create videos with the touch of a button.  The father daughter team of Jorge and Alexa Narvaez decided to cover one of Lightning 100’s Top Artists of 2010, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Fields.  Check out their version of “Home.”


1.21.10 – I’m Alive

I know, I know… it’s been almost a month since my last post. Lets just say 2010 has been kicking my a$$ with a wedding, crossword puzzles, beverages, darts, and work. Back on it though. Let’s hope for good this time. I have written a couple posts about some local bands, but am waiting for a good video to post. Gotta keep moving along now. This one is about ‘Delta Spirit’. They have a ridiculously great album called ‘Ode To Sunshine’ that I can listen to over and over again. It came out in 2007 or ’08 and I really don’t think I’m tired of any of it still. I had the distinct pleasure of catching their set at Bonnaroo last year and hope to see them at least 53 more times this year. The guys voice is so powerful and still sincere. The slow songs are gorgeous… the fast songs are great and def. radio worthy. Go buy the record NOW and hopefully we’ll be seeing another one from them very soon. I’m going to introduce you to 2 of my favorite websites too.

First is ‘Daytrotter’. They post new song sessions everyday with different artists and ‘Delta Spirit’ has been a guest at least 3 times. The first link I’m posting has a Paul Simon cover called
‘Duncan’ and a wonderfully slow song called ‘House Built For Two’.

The second link has ‘Bleeding Bells’ and their single ‘Trashcan’

Thirdly, I’m posting a link to another wonderful site from across the pond called ‘La Blogotheque’. They do some amazing videos and kinda just let the artists do whatever they wanna do. I highly recommend wasting at least 12 days on this site. This is ‘People Turn Around’

Here’s the blogotheque version of ‘Trashcan’ too… wish i could’ve been on that trolley :)
