Day 291: Gideon by My Morning Jacket

26 Apr

I just recently got into My Morning Jacket (probably a little late, but better late than never!), and of all the songs I’ve heard so far, this is my favorite.

“Gideon” not only displays the gorgeous voice of Jim James, but it’s so uplifting and wonderful. I love the intro guitar part, which is sort of reminiscent of U2 or another band of that caliber, but his voice just reverberates in my brain. It’s a lovely feeling.

Enjoy “Gideon” (and this awesome video for it) by My Morning Jacket.

On a totally random note, I used to hate the show American Dad, but when I watched this episode premier a while back, I had total respect for the show and My Morning Jacket (that was my first real exposure). Here’s how I felt the other day when I played the band on my poster route:

Day 267: Fall Of Graz by Tigercity

8 Mar

Sorry for the short post, tonight!

I got this CD for free last year, and honestly I never listened to it until today… but Ancient Lover (2009) by the indie band Tigercity is pretty awesome.

It’s very reminiscent of the Cure back in the 80s, but the sound is a little more rockin’ and a bit more 2000s influenced. I really like the sound and I’m looking forward to hearing more.

Anyway, here’s one of my favorite songs on the album “Fall Of Graz”!
