s>o>w: City and Colour, Fragile Bird

Having totally forgotten about this song, I was happy to enjoy it once again on my trip home from work yesterday.  At the same time, I also happened upon quite a lively and song-filled bird; entirely adorable, and not so fragile.


s>o>w: Ben Folds, Gracie

This week’s song is in honor of my sweet niece’s birthday.  I was going to post “Poker Face” from Lady Gaga, as Gracie announced when she was two that it was her “favoritist” song – but the video is too weird.

So, here’s Ben Fold’s “Gracie”

This song fits so well with my brother (her dad) and she. Such a daddy’s girl!

s>o>w: Band of Horses, Evening Kitchen

My friend posted a similar video of this song on her blog and since I’ve come upon it, I’ve hummed it on-and-off most days.  It’s sad and sweet and strong.

I’m curious to know what you think.

s>o>w: Emy Reynolds, Tonight

Two years ago – maybe more, maybe less – I came across Emy Reynolds and fell head-over-heels for her voice; it was precisely what I was looking for at that time.  Folky, passionate, and has a uniqueness to it that can freshen a day filled with lame, yet catchy Pop songs.

The first video is her live, but as the quality is poor-ish, I’ll post two videos.

Below has much, much better quality!!


s>o>w: Cole Cash, Morning Philosophy

I’m a little out-of-order this week with having the week’s song come before the week’s word, but I think you’ll find yourself thanking me for the change-up.

Best song ever! 

It’s also very Fleet Fox-y!


s>o>w: Cole Cash, Good

These are two members from Cole Cash – my best friend’s band.  Thomas started this pet project years ago and I’ve so enjoyed watching the growth.  His song “Good” was played during Offertory.

s>o>w: Mount Moriah, Lament

I heard this band on NPR a little while ago and just fell in love.  It’s exactly what I had been looking to add to my potpourri-like music collection.  As Heather McEntire’s voice is eerily familiar to Dolly Parton’s, I had initially thought she’d taken up a new, more modern folk-like sound – I was wrong and pleasantly surprised.
