Low – Silver Rider

I spent a very enjoyable evening in my brother’s company last night at RMA Sandurst. As such, I wanted to post a song containing a clever pun. Alas I had already posted Elvis Costello, The Jam and Bjork ruling out Oliver’s Army, The Eton Rifles and Army of me and I couldn’t come up with anything else. Feel free to help me out.

I will have to make do with this in stead. I have been very much enjoying it all week after stumbling across it whilst surfing on youtube. I knew nothing about the band, but I love the track – slow-burning and quiet yet compelling.

Nobody dreamed you’d save the world…

James Vincent McMorrow – Higher love

This is the second cover version I have posted this week. This also takes a song from a different era and completely turns it on it’s head. The original actually has a certain cheesy charm (the video is certainly pretty awesome) but I like the stripped back quality of this version. It sounds heartfelt and honest.

Also, how Irish does this geezer look?
