“Flying like a lost crow”

I’ve forgotten where I found this video but I love the animation and the simplicity of the song by Mike Doughty. It’s from his album- The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I love the title and it’s next up on my Apple Music playlist.

“Dress me like the front of a casino”

I’m pretty sure the last music video I posted was Alexandra Savior, but Mirage has been on regular rotation on my playlist since it was released and I make no apologies for posting another one. I’m still looking forward to hearing the full album, Belladonna of Sadness, once it’s finally released. Sign up for my newsletter and get four free ebooks. CLICK HERE to get started.

“In my mind, I’ve acquired a tangle I can’t undo”

I discovered Alexandra Savior through the True Detective 2 soundtrack (which is excellent) and I’ve been following her releases ever since. Apparently there’s an album on the way soon, but in the meantime, she’s been drip feeding some really good individual tracks, including this one – Mystery Girl. And this one… M.T.M.E. I’m looking forward to hearing a full album once it finally launches. Sign up for my newsletter and get four free ebooks. CLICK HERE to get started.

“Everybody knows the good guys lost”

My wife and I were lucky enough to see Leonard Cohen when he visited Vancouver a few years back and it was one of the best gigs we’ve been to. His albums drop into my music rotation on a regular basis and his book, Beautiful Losers, was one of the first I bought when I moved to Canada. His last couple of albums have been a farewell of sorts but I was still very sad to hear that he’d joined the long list of great people we’ve lost in 2016. To quote Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull – “We seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away.” There’s so many great Leonard Cohen songs but Everybody Knows is my favourite and one that keeps popping into my head these days. And for a bit of variety, here’s a cool cover by a band I need to rediscover, Concrete Blonde. The movie footage in both videos is from Pump Up The Volume which is a fun movie I also need to rediscover.   Sign up for my newsletter and get four free ebooks. CLICK HERE to get started.
