BC - Enter the Wolf's Den

Posted 06-28-2013 at 06:53 PM by bob ((bo)blog)

Oh my, I can't just sit here all night listening to Patrick Wolf without sharing, can I?
This guy is bloody lovely.
Enjoy.

Divided nation in sedation
overload of information
That we have grown up to ignore
mediocrity applauded



And I love that here you live with me
Gives me the greatest peace I've ever known
Cos I've been too long a lonely man
Yes I've been too long a rolling stone

BC - Song of the Day

Posted 06-19-2013 at 11:09 AM by bob ((bo)blog)

What to do on a summer's day that is not quite as summery as one would wish?
When skies are grey, when rain is pouring and thunder rolling?
I say, close your eyes and let Nina Simone bring you the sun.
And I say, it's all right.

BC - Brand New Darlings

Perhaps I can blame it on my age. Perhaps (more likely) it's just plain laziness. No matter what the reasons may be, the fact stands clear (and boring): I rarely discover new music anymore. I keep listening to the same people I have been listening to for the past 5-10 years. Luckily, though, there are exceptions. Over the last few days, I'm glad to say, my ears have fallen in love not only once, but twice.

This past weekend, I went to see Steve Earle & The Dukes (& Duchesses)....

Isn't it nice when two (or) more musicians you admire decide to combine their greatness and work together? Today, I will share some of my favourite musical collaborations with you. (If you would like to share yours with me, feel free to do so!)

Let's begin with a recent example. Tift Merritt is an excellent singer-songwriter, mainly hanging out somewhere under the country/americana umbrella. Last year, she released the album Traveling Alone (warmly recommended, by the way) where she...

BC - Songs About Singers, Songs About Songs

Long time no blog, but since the new Blog Challenge theme is Melomaniacs, I simply couldn't resist giving this a try.

So. Melomaniacs. I've met a few of those in my days. I am one, I dare say. But surely, some of the finest ones can be found among musicians themselves. Some musicians love music so much, they even write music about it. There are plenty of song lyrics out there about, or refering to, other musicians or songs. I thought I'd share some of my favourite examples. Dear blog...
