Song for a Sunday Morning 10/21/18 Zola Jesus – Wiseblood (Johnny Jewel Remix)

I’ve been tending towards instrumentals for these Sunday morning selections, but I heard this song this past week and I thought it was perfect.  Zola Jesus is an American synth-pop artist.  I love the chorus lyrics: “If it doesn’t make you wiser, Doesn’t make you stronger, Doesn’t make you live a little bit, What are you doing?

Song of the Day TBT 10/11/18 Talking Heads – Crosseyed and Painless

This one, from their 1980 album Remain in Light, takes me back to college and my friend Kathy who lived on the second floor of our dorm.  She was the one who broadened my musical frontiers so to speak, and introduced me to Talking Heads, The Clash and so many other bands.  Hell at one point we even drove down to DC for a Laurie Anderson show.  This ones for you Kathy wherever you may be.

Song of the Day 10-07-18 Tim Hecker “Music for Tundra

Tim Hecker is a Canadian electronic musician and sound artist.  To me this song perfectly captures the tension of a Sunday morning, perched between looking forward to the week ahead while considering the week that has just concluded.  Sometimes the minutiae and details from the past week keep intruding on the contemplative state Sunday morning music usually brings.
