Happy Birthday To Me!

April 13, 2007 at 12:15 pm (Andrew Bird, Bright Eyes, Frank Sinatra, Joni Mitchell, Junior Boys, Marylin Monroe, mp3s, Stevie Wonder, Sufjan Stevens)


Yeah, that’s right; it’s my birthday. In addition to playing Person Pitch nonstop on my brand new stereo system, I actually found some time to track down some birthday related tracks from Andrew Bird, Bright Eyes, Sinatra, and Monroe. They separate into two categories; quick little one-minute renditions of the song people leave on your answering machine every year, and longer tracks that deal with the general idea of birthdays. Some of these are interesting beyond their gimmick, especially the infamous ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’.

A Tribute To Joni Mitchell; Prince, Sufjan, and Bjork

March 25, 2007 at 7:12 am (Bjork, Joni Mitchell, mp3s, Prince, Sufjan Stevens)

Where Sufjan goes, the indie world will follow. While that’s one of the basic truths of indie culture, it probably doesn’t hurt that on his latest project, Bjork and Prince also helped out a little. Have I peaked your interest yet? Well, these three artists, along with several others, have just put out a Joni Mitchell Tribute album. While Sufjans song is a bit off (not his style?), Prince and Bjork nail their performances. Enjoy.
