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.
Frank Turk had a Beatles quiz on Facebook and I of course had to take it. I got a 100 on the test and this Earworm in my head.

Yes it’s once again time for that hyper-violent uber chorographed fight scene where the mundane become deadly weapons. John Wick is back and this time no one is safe. Wait a minute wasn’t that the last movie?
Yes John Wick is back and even though he wants to quit someone has his marker and he can’t get out of it. And to prove the point Wick’s house is burned down. But don’t worry the dog is unharmed.
A quick trip to Rome, (John you’re not here for the Pope are you?), and then he is dressed to kill, literally, and goes to find the target. But it is never the case that once the job is done it’s over as the one that ordered the hit turns on John to “clean up loose ends”.
I can honestly say that I have never seen so many head shots in my entire life of watching movies.
Now if hyper-violent uber chorographed movies are your schtick and you can park your intelligence on some back shelf then by all means rent this movie. Just don’t bring any children.
John Wick Chapter 2 gets three stars.
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.
If you have watched the Walking Dead or Longmire you probably have heard Wye Oak’s Civilian. This indie duo that takes its name from their birth state’s tree (go look it up).
So when I just couldn’t get rid of this Pat Benatar hit I started looking for someone who covered it and did it well. I found two and Wye Oak won. take a moment and enjoy.
