Song Of The Day: Kathleen Edwards ‘Change The Sheets.’ Great song; she definitely has the wonderful gift of songwriting. Produced by Bon Iver mastermind and boyfriend, Justin Vernon, whose style you can definitely hear through out the album. Definitely has that Fall weather feel to it. Enjoy.
Song Of The Day: Mount Vernon ‘Sprinkler.’ Another older side project of Justin Vernon’s (Bon Iver, Gayngs). The harmonies are really nice and you can hear the early influences of Vernon’s love for strings. Very cool song.
Bon Iver ‘Beth/Rest‘
New video to go with the release of the 12” today. The best song off his self-titled album, ‘Bon Iver.’
Bon Iver ‘Austin City Limits‘
Mitt Romney is trying to take away great performances like this…just saying.
Bon Iver ‘Bon Iver.’
Hands down my favorite album of 2011. This is the album I wish I could have never heard, so I could hear it again for the first time. Other albums that fall under that category:
The Beatles ‘Revolver’
Pink Floyd ‘Animals’
Blink-182 ‘Dude Ranch’
Pearl Jam ‘Vs’
Anyone else have an album they wish they could hear again for the first time?
Bon Iver ‘A Song For You/I Can’t Make You Love Me/Nick Of Time’ Live on Jimmy Fallon
- this is one of my favorite versions of this song. Justin Vernon is like a jazz songwriter. Every time he plays something live, he mixes it up; adds different melodies and arrangements. In my opinion, this version shines above the rest.

Song Of The Day: Fleet Foxes ‘Blue Ridge Mountains.’ For as long as I remember, I’ve needed something to help me fall asleep. My parents didn’t let me have a television in my room until I was 21ish (at that point I didn’t even care to have one) but I definitely took advantage of it. Before then, it was always music. When I was in elementry school, it was Magic 106.7’s Bedtime Magical with David Allen Boucher (Boston area). Then, 104.1 WBCN through middle school and high school (the top 5 most requested songs at 8pm were great). I have an entire record spindle full of burnt CD’s with simply ‘Sleep Mix,’ on them. Now a days, I’ll get in bed, watch a little TV, turn it off, and play some nice relaxed music. Fleet Foxes is the perfect band for falling asleep to. Sweet harmonies you could swear you’re hearing directly from Laurel Canyon (even though I realize they’re from Washington St., they still have a California feel to them.) Which brings me to an important question: what are some of your favorite albums to fall asleep to? Here are a few of mine. Send me a message with your favorites. We might have more in common than you think.
Fleet Foxes ‘Self-Titled’
The New Amsterdams ‘Para Toda Vida’
Bon Iver ‘Self Titled’
Death Cab For Cutie ‘Plans’
Pink Floyd ‘Animals’ (my favorite Floyd album)
The Anniversary ‘Designing A Nervous Breakdown’
Radiohead ‘Kid A’
