Video of the Day #45: Huck Notari

A week ago I was travelling to my hometown in a bus with Huck Notari’s beautiful album Very Long Dream as my companion and once again I fell in love with his songs. The album was released back in 2009, so this isn’t a new release. However, Huck Notari is so criminally unknown that he deserves a late love letter. I adore the whole album and I’m totally addicted to the beauty of the songs called I Want To Win and Wall Around Your Heart. I don’t think there’s a video for I Want To Win so let’s focus on the latter one. Wall Around Your Heart is one of my favourite break-up songs ever released. It’s such a beautifully crafted little song. I love the fact that I can’t really hear any anger or bad will towards “her” and no matter how broken the character in the song is, I know that he will end up being alright. This song is worth of all hearts in the world and Huck Notari from Portland, Oregon is a wonderful folk singer-songwriter.

Video of the Day #44: Koria Kitten Riot

I’ve been a bit busy during the last couple of days. Therefore it took me a while to post this new Koria Kitten Riot video, but let’s get it done now even though I’m too tired to write much about it. Antti Reikko is currently working on his second album under the name Koria Kitten Riot and this song called Mother is the first outtake from the upcoming album.

Video of the Day #43: Caitlin Rose & Rowan

Two videos for today. First we have a country singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose from Nashville, Tennessee. The song is called Own Side and it’s from her debut album. I must admit that I don’t really know Caitlin very well. I heard a couple of songs from her earlier EP sometime last year and since that she’s been on my list of artists/bands that I need to pay attention to. But I never really properly listened to her until a little promoter called Rowan entered the picture…

And here’s that little promoter I was talking about. Rowan is a 5-year old girl and she is singing that same song on the video below. Ok, proud parents filming their kids singing their favourite songs. There’s probably thousands of similar kind of videos on youtube. Most of them are probably nice, but it’s very often just the parents, relatives and friends that find these videos really cute and adorable. However, Rowan singing Caitlin Rose’s Own Side Now is pretty much the cutest and most adorable video on the internet. She looks so cute and sings so well. I’ve watched this probably twenty times during the past two days and this just makes me happy every time. Thanks Rowan for introducing Caitlin Rose’s songwriting talent to the world. I will buy her album just because of you.

Video of the Day #42: Summer Fiction

Back to Philly. Summer Fiction is a Philadelphia-based pop group led by Bill Ricchini. Their previous music video Chandeliers also featured in this video of the day section. I loved that song, but never properly checked out the full album. I really need to do that now, because this seem to be totally my kind of stuff. Throw Your Arms Around Me is another wonderful and oh so charming song from their debut album.
