Ben Harper is one of my favorite artists…11 years since I first heard him play live in Chicago and he just keeps getting better and better. Enjoy this set over a nice cup of coffee. Cheers!
CBS seems to have messed up their embed code…here’s the link to all of the songs and videos over at Ben Harper’s website.
I love that Jason and Mike have been able to keep making music for all these years…The Nadas have been one of my favorite bands ever since I was an undergrad at the University of Northern Iowa. I think it’s pretty funny that they just busted out Eye of the Tiger in Philadelphia!
6 tracks that I’ve been spinning lately…
Life, love, change, and the future.
Ben Harper debuts his new band Relentless7 and his album White Lies For Dark Times on Austin City Limits.
Wow. I think I’ve watched/listened to this amazing Michael Jackson Medley at least 10 times now. Sam Tsui is awesome!
Listen to “Feels Like Home”
I’ve been listening to the Nadas for quite a while. At least 12 years of auditory enjoyment. I remember seeing them perform at the OP in Cedar Falls, Iowa while I was a student at the University of Northern Iowa. I’ve seen them perform at venues in Iowa, in Chicago, IL and at a friends wedding in Minnesota. I’ve watched these guys grow up while I myself was maturing. When the inevitable occurs and the Nadas retire/break-up, I’m going to be bummed out. They have been a musical constant in my eclectic musical collection. I wonder if they’ll ever make it out to Oregon for a gig?
Listen to “Blue Lights”
Listen to “Coming Home”
A fantastic version of this classic song. It’s a powerful and very moving rendition. This song always reminds me of those who have supported me along the way.
In other web-music news, Muxtape, another favorite locale for web music, is currently down. The homepage sadly displays the following message:
“Muxtape will be unavailable for a brief period while we sort out a problem with the RIAA.”
The RIAA sucks. Seriously. Web-based radio stations “pay more for playing a song than traditional or satellite radio.”
