A yearly reminder of the greatness of J.E. Sunde. He is an exceptional songwriter from Minneapolis and his solo albums Shapes that Kiss The Lips of God are and Now I Feel Adored are wonderful and really dear to me. The earlier Daredevil Christopher Wright stuff is also gorgeous and worth investigating.
I somehow managed to miss this video of I Don’t Care to Dance (live on Pony Rug) when it surfaced in January, but thankfully I noticed it last Sunday and probably have spent an hour so watching this 4-minute video over and over again during the week. I suppose someone could say it’s just a lovely simple tune, but I love it wholeheartedly and relate to it on a deeply personal level. Maybe because I’m a shy, restrained, overly romantic and unmanly man and can just feel all the emotions that is going through the mind of the narrator. I don’t really care to dance, but I would strongly consider taking a few moderate dance steps whenever I hear this song. Oh and do check out the Pony Rug website. They have lots of similar kind of videos from other great artists. Link is below.
Of course I have to use this opportunity to share a couple of songs from the two solo albums that are both available on Cartouche Records.
And one Daredevil Christopher Wright classic too while I’m at it.
