I’m not entirely sure about that title, but wanted to share a couple of bands I really really like.
Eric Lovre & Lisa LeGros
Layered and hypnotic music with that vintage lo-fi sound that makes it even more personal. Unfortunately I don’t even have a full album and this song I got by accident from my friends. Guess it makes it only more special.
A former member of Carissa’s Wierd, Jenn also has a very distinct and quiet sound. But it is similar to the previous one in the way how personal they sound. Like a record of a friend.
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
This Mortal Coil (Pearls Before Swine cover)
At first I heard this song as a cover by This Mortal Coil. They made lots of magical covers of 70s bands. And for this song I love the cover version even more than the original.
This song was also performed by This Mortal Coil. But nothing can stand any way close to this original version, even Tim’s later studio recording of the same song. And he is just 20 years old on this video! Unbelievable.
