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?”
Some country/roots rock/Americana to get the weekend started! Perfect song for a Friday. From his new album, Somewhere in Between.
Not throwing back too far this week. There have been a lot of opinions about Courtney Love over the years. What’s not in dispute (imho) is that Hole’s 1998 album Celebrity Skin is a great one. This is one of my favorites off of it.
This song seemed right for a overcast somewhat gloomy morning.
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.
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.
It’s been a bit quite on the blog the last few days. Let’s get things going again on this Saturday. I hear police sirens – – –
