Now that FIFA madness is over, we can get back to the real world..
I for one feel like this blog posts a tad too much Kevin Devine. Agreed? Well if only he didn’t have all that music in his mouth, then we wouldn’t have anything to post 😉
She Stayed As A Stream, which came out earlier as a demo version, is now avaiable for a free download over at the Favorite Gentlemen’s website (Record label owned by Manchester Orchestra, which KevDev is signed to along with All Get Out). The single is on his 2010 EP along with 3 other new tracks!
Which do you guys like better? I am undecided because they are both great tracks, yet are so different from one another. I find that the new version is more patient, thoughtful and darker, while the demo does the job its supposed to do: make you fall in love with the rawness of a song enough to want more. But hey, why choose? Just enjoy both
It’s friday night and I am hungry
for a hand, a mouth a body
a love I wouldn’t have to carry
Hello everyone! We hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather and nicely tanned (at least for you olive people out there…)! We have been working on this mix for a while now, and it has been a little difficult because our little wolf is in europe and 6 hours ahead, which is why we’re posting this AFTER the first day of summer. We bring you these songs from Canada and Italy (there’s not italian music… but there IS canadian music!).
Anyways, this mix was inspired simply by what we think people (our readers) want to hear in the summertime. Summer music, like summer clothes, is specific and essential in this hot hot heat! The mix starts with a very high energy and ends on a lower key, while keeping the same momentum. Enjoy this driving in the car with the windows down, while hanging out with friends tanning in the backyard or anywhere that has sunshine – Enjoy!
