“History Lesson – Part 2″ is their single greatest songwriting achievement and I’m not sure this is debatable. For all of the gigs and flyers in this band’s densely-packed 6-year career, this tune reflects the gigantic heart of the band. What did they stand for these Minutemen? Where did they come from? Where did they fit on the rock ‘n’ roll continuum? What will they mean in the future? If Joyce encapsulated the history of the English language in Ulysses, Watt encapsulated the history of punk rock in “History Lesson – Part 2.”

Emily Nenni - Loving Cup

I had one of my periodic thoughts on the subway last night that Loving Cup is the greatest song the Stones ever recorded, and one of the best ever by any band. I searched soundcloud and there doesnt seem to be a link to the Stones version of it but, not surprisingly, there are hundreds of covers. This is one

I moved to New York City in August of 2010 on a total whim with something like 300 dollars to my name. I had been living in Missouri and my old bandmate offered me a ride cross half the country. I took him up on it and I went with little to no planning.

During that really crazy time, I saw the end of a Takashi Miike film where the phrase “The Confused Sound of Blood in a Shining Person” flashed on the screen. It stuck with me, and my old high school bud Alex Tatusian and I started working on this riff and this phrase.

I’m super pumped THREE YEARS LATER to finally present a recording and a tight music video, filmed at Flux Factory.

grouper - call across rooms

New Grouper - stunning, piano song from upcoming record.

So quiet, it made me listen repeated times with increasing volume and increasing attention; each time I heard something new.

Antony and the Johnsons - Knocking on Heaven’s Door (Bob Dylan cover)

This one destroys me a little less than Antony singing Cohen’s If It Be Your Will, but just a little less. A beautiful, delicately fractured take on the song.

Take your cover Friday easy, kids.
