Feist - Broken Social Scene cover of “Lover’s Spit”
I just have so many memories and events tied to this song. It’s always been incredibly meaningful to me, and still remains deeply moving. Something about the tragically beautiful and romantic images that come with this tune. Evokes a lot from the heart, and truly one of my favorite Broken Social Scene songs, till this day. :) Absolutely love the Feist cover of Kevin Drew’s original vocals for this song.
“You know it’s time, that we grow old and do some shit”
Yeasayer - “O.N.E. (acoustic)”
“Love, you don’t move me anymore. I’m glad that you don’t. Cause I can’t have you anymore!”
One of the best songs from this Brooklyn band! The country-fried version of this pop/dance tune is actually really homegrown sounding. It makes me smile, thinking of their demos and how just original versions of later on produced songs just appears so vulnerable & raw. Saw them live last year and was blown away.
Temper Trap - “Trembling Hands”
This Aussie based indie/alternative band is back again with new material off their newest and much anticipated album, which is to be released tomorrow! They have definitely made a name for themselves these past 2 years - having their songs in every TV/Movie soundtrack, played in advertisements and more! Their appeal is universal and it certainly has a lot to do with their musical sensibilities, soaring/blood pumping melodies and heartfelt vocals. Taking influences from U2 (one of their fav bands) and making it their own. I expect a lot from this group and their new single “Trembling Hands” proves just what they have in store! :) Awesomeness.
Because they are just freaking awesome live!! and I am so amazed by all their individual talents and the ability to capture dreams & magic within their songs! It was indeed a beautiful performance of the senses! I loved it when the audience sang along to each and every OoOo…and Ahhh…sound for sound, word for word. It was spectacular!
Lucius - “Go Home”
Saw this band last night open for Freelance Whales!! They were fantastic!!! so impressed by their harmonies and energy on stage! the two female vocalists were very badass and had powerful vocals! I would say this band is a mix Tegan & Sara, Sleigh bells and First aid kit. They’ll be a huge name someday soon! trust me. ;)
Alex Winston - “Locomotive”
One of my personal fav Take Away Show videos!! European scenery and architecture, set to some beautiful harmonies and music. Alex Winston is truly a free spirit and a passionate individual, with a unique tone that brings her songs to life! I can’t say more great things about her debut album, “KING CON”. It’s definitely one of a kind.
