Continuing on with the theme of artists you don’t normally hear on Christian Radio we have The Choir.
These alt rockers have been the inspiration for bands such as Switchfoot and Sixpence None the Richer but it hasn’t translated to radio play. So take a listen and if you want to know more go to the website: The Choir
So I was pointed to this article that talks about bands that aren’t in the mainstream. The 77’s are what can be called a classic rock band similar to the Beatles, ELO, or U2 and definitely worth a listen.
The Deftones an art-metal group releases an album (made of actual vinyl) of covers. One of which was this cover of The Carrs Drive. I’ve listened to a lot of covers of this song and IMHO they do the best job.
So I was playing the drive your coworkers crazy with pop songs they can’t get out of their head game at work when I scored a telling blow with this Britney song. And for some reason I wondered what indie bands had ever covered pop songs which led me to Travis. So take a minute and enjoy.
I love what these guys do with contemporary songs and I have to admit that this is the first time I have understood all the lyrics.
Heard this on the Andrew Klavan Show and I liked what I heard and I hope you will too. Enjoy.
And for the first Earworm of the new year a little light jazz from Irving Berlin and the Wheaton College Jazz Ensemble
