One More Drink And I Might Tell You All My Secrets

An absolutely magical reworking by RAC. I’m not too much of a fan of the original mix of Harriet’s Irish Margarita honestly, but this remix is going to be on a lot of summer mixes. And it should be.

I love the line that I used to title this post because it’s coming up to the edge of telling someone the truth but never actually getting there because you think that you let yourself go when you never truly did. I find that sometimes that you can approach the line, but for one reason or another, you can never truly tell them how you feel. You bat it around in your head with questions of do I tell her or do I avoid risking the friendship, do you stay and try or do you leave it unsaid? Then you play it safe and you trade sleep for thinking about it.

It’s funny how you can pull out a line in a song and apply it to your life.

But I think I should go…

Steady + Sure

Quiet House is a Utah band made up of Stuart Wheeler, Mary Nielson, Alyssa Pyper, Sydney Howard, Robert Willes, and Jesse Quebbeman-Turley. I came across them on Bandcamp and was entranced by their self-titled album.

In particular, the song Steady + Sure stood out to me and that’s what I’m sharing here.

Enjoy.

I Swear That I Saw You Late Last Night

I tend to write about folk music disproportionately to my listening habits and certainly to submissions. I’ll listen to country happily and I don’t tend to post much about it (although some of the “recent” posts have been covers of country songs) and I’ll venture into alt-country territory fairly easily. I’ll listen to alternative rock happily and I don’t post nearly enough about it. I mean Catfish and the Bottlemen is way up there for favorite 2015 concert and album.

Here’s an effort to share some great alt-rock. It’s What I Saw by Racing Glaciers.

And then there’s that outro. It’s loud and crashing and something to rock to.

Just a trick of the light.

Yeah The First Move Was To Settle

I have been absolutely horrible at posting recently. I tell myself I should then I don’t. With that being said, this song, Seoul, by Wangel has been an obsession of mine. It is quite possibly my most played song of April, which is amazing to me with Strange Trails now out.

The funny thing is that emotionally it is very much like Lord Huron and it puts me in a very contemplative mood so in some ways this downtempo song matches up really well with the songs of my favorite album of recent memory.

Counting days, I’m walking backwards
Shameless truth took me flying
Eat my pills, I’m sure it won’t break me apart
I hold my head up

Sweetest dream I’m cured, A work of art
Love can change, why wouldn’t you recall
The golden chance is based on bigger things
I will lay my eyes on

Far away now, I feel the distance
Take me with you unknowing
You can show me how to be in control
In time I’ll catch up

This is real I’m sure words will last
Love will fade, why couldn’t we resolve it
The golden chance is based on bigger things
I will keep on chasing

Just let me go with it
I can show you how much I’ll try
Let me join and let’s not give in
Cheating time
Don’t think that we fit that case
Yeah, the first move was to settle
Screaming the joy of my life
Now I’m ready
I think the time has come

Though I’m fronting
The greatest wall, How can I climb?
I need to be strong, how can I defend myself
Carry on
