if i should fall behind (springsteen cover) - the wave pictures

morning walk album, so excellent. 

the wave pictures are the perfect band to cover springsteen’s music as they are both such fantastic storytellers and passionate performers. this particular song is probably one of the more simply written but deeply moving stories, if you have ever been married or in a long-term committed relationship, it will resonate with you. to move together in this life with one other person is challenging and making the choice to ride it all out, good and bad, and stick together is never easy.

from me…
this is some exclusive jack white shit going on right here. first the tour only artistic vice album and now another special tour only cd. i am crying. i want them!!! this isn’t actually an angry rant, i’m not an angry person. it’s more of my general whining about all good tours and festivals and bands being across the giant pond that i can’t see and stuff i can’t get because of said distance. i love you guys, why are you making me so sad with your tour only awesomeness that i can’t have. end whine.

from the tigercats…
September 25th – Tamesis Dock, Vauxhall w/ The Wave Pictures. Aftershow party till 1am with DJ sets from Tigercats and The Wave Pictures.

without feathers - david tattersall & the fishermen three

i woke up with this song in my head this morning. so i’ve listened to it a lot today and i thought i would share this version which i really like a lot, especially how the energy really picks up when they sing my favorite line “and everybody lives together, and everybody lives forever in joe’s lunchroom”

the excellent video is here
