Some requested tunes, all via YSI …
Not my favourite of his, but probably the country singer’s biggest hit to date.
With the exception of this and “Cathedrals”, most of JLC’s songs are kind of bland. Nice, but bland. But this one is more rock and a bit sexier than the rest of their catalogue, with the lead singer abandoning his usual Meloy-esque vocals to scream “What makes you hot?!”
It’s a shame that Mediaeval Baebes isn’t more popular. They are a standout band in the creepy goth girl genre. They feature an entire choir of female vocalists and lovely music culled from the Dark Ages. “Isabella” is a more spirited track, while “Summerisle” is a great cover of The Maypole song from the classic cult film, The Wicker Man.
This blog’s been saturated with their songs, but that’s cos they are one of my very favourite bands. Traditional Irish music goes punk.
The grime princess. First an original, then a live cover of a Kaiser Chiefs song – I think her version is much better!
And a repost, per request:
Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine
As for me, I’m looking for anything by Leela James or Lori McKenna. Thanks.
