For Burns night , for money is not everything ...........................................


Green grow the rashes, O!
Green grow the rashes, O!
The sweetest hours that e'er I spend,
Are spent amang the lasses, O!

There's nought but care on every han'
In every hour that passes, O;
What signifies the life o' man,
An 'twere na for the lasses, O?

The warl'ly race may riches chase,
An' riches still may fly them, O;
An' though at last they catch them fast,
Their hearts can ne'er enjoy them, O.

But gi'e me a canny hour at e'en,
My arms about my dearie, O,
An' warl'ly cares an' warl'ly men
May a' gae tapsalteerie, O!

For you sae douce, ye sneer at this,
Ye're nought but senseless asses, O;
The wisest man the warl' e'er saw,
He dearly loved the lasses, O.

Auld Nature swears the lovely dears
Her noblest work she classes, O;
Her 'prentice han' she tried on man,
An' then she made the lasses, O.
Robert Burns

Alright since we've got another Utahn posting above......
(Good call on Rumspringa......I hear another song from them I really like on Pandora but I couldn't find it on youtube just now.  I'll post it when I find it.)



Trust me, this is really good.

Recent Fiona Apple with Andrew Bird.

Violins, voices (screams and whispers), imperfections, and goofiness. 

it's damn near perfect.




Everything they do in the great room is awesome,
but for a refined more commercial sound, this is top notch.

I have recently been reminded of Abney Park - some of their songs are just...quite silly really....(after all, they call themselves a "Post-Apocalyptic Steampunk Band", so a certain amount of silly is to be expected) and I find the lead singer not always easy to understand, but I think they have some good/fun songs.

Abney Park - Give 'Em What For

AP - Born at the Wrong Time

I was actually trying to find a youtube of their song "Away from the Things of Man" - but I can not find it....

Full disclosure, Im listening to this but I also wrote and sang it. This song is called An Open Letter to Animals on Permaculture Farms, and is performed by my band Valet.
Hope you enjoy!

I'm a hamming it up in the wood shop.  There is rarely a time when Pandora isn't on in my Woodturning shop.

I listen to almost everything.

Right now:

I have to hear this at least once a year.... freakin' LOVE the POGUES and always will! "Fairytale of New York", also known as "Christmas Eve In The Drunk Tank".  If you have a drop of Celtic blood... or a little Irish in your soul.. you'll get this one:

A friend introduced me to this music, and I've just been amazed at this dude's awareness.  He's certainly building his tribe.

This cheerful one by Kate Rusby seems fitting as May rolls in.

Right now I’m listening to Matthew Byrne, a singer/songwriter from Newfoundland.  Here is his song, ‘Adelaide’, a beautifully told tale of the comfort of closure as we navigate this life.  Celtic/acoustic/folk

So, for the last three years I've been really digging into the whole indie folk/Americana/bluegrass scene and have discovered (for me) some really wonderful bands: Horse Feathers, Head and the Heart, The Staves, Sean Rowe, The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Nickle Creek, Greensky Bluegrass, etc. But for the last week, I've been listening, almost exclusively to Elephant Revival. I'm so smitten with this band's sound.  Let me put it this way to see if you may like them ... if you like the background music for the TV series Firefly, you'll LOVE Elephant Revival.  Here are a few links to some of their videos to see for yourself.  Oh, and they are also brave enough to cover some big hits ..

This is a mellow song from them: https://youtu.be/bBSMe_bmJto

This is more traditional Americana/bluegrass: https://youtu.be/KCYUDBYpv0g

Their cover of "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane: https://youtu.be/MarQVlEAmBA

Their cover of Pink Floyd's "Have a Cigar": https://youtu.be/L0gnM9h-hjs

Enjoy!

Just found this band a few months ago.  Indie/folk is how I'd describe them.  A duo, the lead singer died of Leukemia not long ago.  His lyrics really have a lot of depth to them in my opinion.

This is a "sea shanty'ish" song.   https://youtu.be/sVNniDvCVOc

This I think is one of their best.  The woman is on vocals on this one.  https://youtu.be/cW95ahUEsCg

Too many good ones to list them all....but here's another one (sea references) and they're both singing in this one.  https://youtu.be/zoqH9irCn3o

A quote from the song,

" When everyday’s like a war between the will to go on
And a wish that the world would spiral into the sun
Turn your head toward the storm that’s surely coming along

If the sun was always shining and our load always light
We’d be shaking like a leaf with every God given night
And we’d break under the weight of any pressure
That was ever applied"

St. Paul and the Broken Bones are a new throwback. Sound like an oxymoron? It just could be, but these guys (and the lead singer) will drop your jaw.
