It’s been a while since I’ve posted a playlist. So in honor of Toronto’s beautiful autumn here’s what I’ve been listening to as I walk through leaf covered parks on my way to wherever. From the soulful Ben Harper to the electric Mayer to the political stylings of Public Enemy; call it autumn-music:
Empty Road – Matthew Good
Ice Age – Pete Yorn
Stop This Train – John Mayer (a coming-of-age story or a quarter-life crisis)
Waiting On An Angel – Ben Harper
How Do You Go On? – Pete Yorn
Overkill – Benjamin’s Gate
Bold As Love – John Mayer (proving he can set an electric guitar on fire)
He Got Game – Public Enemy (sampling Steven Stills; what more do you want from hip hop?)
You can check them out on The Black Iris Radio.
p.s. check out Pete Yorn’s new album Nightcrawler, in case I don’t get around to reviewing it.
I never heard this cover verison of Overkill. The Benjamin Gate sound like a pretty good band. However, for this song, I still prefer Collin Hay to sing it, his song has a special place in my heart.
lksfadljk: they’re a christian rock band but they honestly don’t have any other good songs (in my opinion) other than this cover. the colin hay original is of course great, i just liked this one for the electric/alternative spin.
“stop this train” is my favorite in “continuum”.
i was gonna email you about this
a few weeks ago my cousin dragged me to this place to see Mat Kearney and Griffin House playing …they reminded me of you…do you know them ?
check them out
Maha: wow, what a great find! thanks a bunch! 🙂
Btw I liked your “I was just thinking”, more than the original actually
