I bring you the best acoustic music in the world - both past and present!
Morphine - The Other Side
What better way to start this thing off than with a Boston band with a huge cult following?. Mark Sandman was a genius and Morphine is incredible. Feel it here!
Ted Leo - Dancing in the Dark (Springsteen cover)
I am a big Ted Leo and the Pharmacists fan. Here is a rare acoustic performance where he takes on this song by the Boss. Ted Leo is a master.
The Oaks - Epilogue, Celebration
I plan for this music series to introduce people to new material. The Oaks are as talented as it gets but have not yet received the attention they deserve. I wrote a nice piece on them back in 2006 which I reprinted in March. Check it out.
There was no hotter song in 2006 than Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" - and perhaps no better cover version than this one by relative newcomers - the Kooks. Now this is saying something as there was probably two-dozen good covers of this song recorded in a period of three months. Enjoy!
Find out what many Radiohead naysayers have discovered already. Thom Yorke is just really, really good. Whether or not you understand the Radiohead generation or its sound - give Thom Yorke a shot. Here Thom addresses a new classic.
