Kyle Fischer

MP3: Kyle Fischer - Just One More Day

I discovered this song on the 2003 Polyvinyl sampler. I still don't own the actual record it's on, but Kyle Fischer's "Just One More Day" is such a fantastic song. It features fellow Rainer Maria bandmate Caithlin De Marrais on vocals and comes off as pining in both lyrics and voice (that's a good thing). It hits me hard everytime I hear it.

Archers of Loaf

Today's track is from one of the greatest groups ever: Archers of Loaf. While I was too young to grow up listening to them, the bands I loved in high school would always credit them, so I was aware. Once American Nightmare (called Give Up the Ghost at this point) covered "You and Me" on the Love American single, I had a huge urge to research AOL.

I like this song a lot. The line "this isn't fun anymore" is one of the most striking lyrics I've ever heard in my lifetime.

The Feverfew

MP3: The Feverfew - Heaven

Today's song is from my friend Bethany. It's a Talking Heads cover. Call me crazy (and I know you will seeing as this is a bold thing to say), but I dig it way more than the original. Enjoy.
