Video of the Day #29: Klifton Filente

Lately I’ve been very much into Klifton Filente’s latest album Common Ground. The man behind Klifton Filente is Jonas Lundvall from Gothenburg, Sweden. A little bit of folk music, a slice of modern indie pop and a whole lot of really good songs. I think the album is mostly brilliant, but if you don’t take my word for it, you can make up your own mind by downloading the album for free on his bandcamp site. This simple video It Takes A Thorn To Remove A Thorn is an outtake from this beautiful album.

Video of the Day #28: Caleb Stine

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.

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:

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.
