If You Don't Call My Name, I'm Leaving On A Midnight Train

First update in a long time, but to be fair I wrote a lengthy post about 6 weeks ago that got swallowed by a faulty internet connection and have been abstaining since then out of spite.

Danny Michel - Midnight Train
>>>>Last week Danny Michel held the CD Release Party/Concert for his new album Valhalla at The Mod Club Theatre. As one of the best performers this country has to offer, Danny never dissapoints in concert. His band was as tight as ever, and the addition of the excessively hot Emm Gryner on bass only improved the night. "Midnight Train" is the first single of Valhalla. Check out Danny's website and MySpace for more sounds, including a demo of Danny and Danmheit Doyle covering Bob Marley for her upcoming release.

Kris Roe - 747 (Kent Cover)
Kent - 747
>>>>A couple months ago Atari's frontman Kris Roe began circulating an EP of him and his guitar floating through some very interesting cover songs. Far from your standard cover fare, it was this cover of Kent's brilliant 747 that I was prepared to thoroughly hate. Fortunately though, Kris didn't bastardize my favourite song from the underrated Swedish rockers, and so I'll share both his version and the original here.


Below are a bunch of songs that I had uploaded previously, but don't want to re-write blurbs about them. I highly suggest using them as a starting point for each artist. Enjoy:

The Pipettes - Pull Shapes

Regina Spektor - Fidelity

Sambassadeur - Kate

Sunset Rubdown - Three Colours II

Muse - Supermassive Black Hole

Amos Lee - Keep It Loose, Keep It Tight

Lastly, Pitchfork has recently uploaded a great new feature, 100 Awesome Music Videos. Although they didn't rank them in order, they wisely included Blur's flawless "Coffee & TV" on the first page. If you've never seen the Milky McCarton-staring clip, click the link above as they've included YouTube versions of all the videos.
