Happy new year everyone. Hopefully this will be a good year for the blog, because One Chord To Another’s 10th anniversary is on 17th of september 2011. Staying active is probably the best way to celebrate that. It isn’t a big deal to anyone else, but the fact that soon I’ve kept this thing going on for ten years does mean something to me. Actually it means a lot to me and hopefully I can come up with more ways to celebrate it during the year.
The first music addiction of the year is Caleb Stine. I just downloaded his latest album on reviewshine and even though I’m not even through the first listening session, I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this album. If I had own this last year, it probably would have featured on my end of the year list. A great songwriter and a great singer. Here’s a live video:
This is the greatest Christmas song ever, Piece For Christmas by Big People. I was a little surprised that I actually found this Räkärodeo classic on youtube. The song obviously should be more famous than Jingle Bells, but in the real world it probably isn’t. Anyway, if you haven’t heard this one yet, check out this homemade video now. There’s just no Christmas without this lovely song.
Today I’ve been mostly obsessed with this simple but somehow really captivating song by Cusack. Kind of like Elliot Smith meets Simon & Garfunkel (or some other equally pointless comparison that this blogger of yours who can’t describe music throws at you). Anyway, it is a great song and I probably should check out what else Cusack has done.
