Seven 9s and 10s

The Milk Carton Kids from The Portland Sessions on Vimeo.

"Our latest session with The Milk Carton Kids at the Alberta Abbey is one of many great and proud moments. The duo and the space breathed together. Passing cars found their place within and between the songs, and in the same way guitars and voices found their place in the natural beauty of a large reverberant gymnasium.”

I couldn’t let my last post live at the top of my blog for any longer, especially not on Christmas.

If you’re looking for some non-Christmas music to break up the monotony of the season, you could do far worse than the three songs performed in this 12-minute video.

I hope you have a wonderful day. Much love to you all.

The Milk Carton Kids - I Still Want A Little More

Monday afternoon I heard these guys on World Cafe. This style of music isn’t particularly up my alley, but sometimes a song just hits you right where it counts and you can’t help but stop whatever it is you’re doing at the time and surrender yourself to its undeniable beauty.

I mean… these guys aren’t exactly breaking new musical ground here, but seriously, how great is this? So great.

They give their albums away for free. Go get ‘em.
