This is my second week into my project/idea of playing a new cover song every Monday. I personally love a good cover song. Today’s is by artist Jacob Ruefer of Illinois, and at first I was like wow, I really like the original by AC, and this is definitely different in style, but it’s grown on me over the year.
Ruefer covers a lot of other great songs from artists like LCD Soundsystem, the xx, Yorke, and Broken Social Scene, too, so check out his blog, and/or Myspace page and give him a listen.
So, i have been in Canada for the last five or so days. It’s been a blur of family, driving, food, and beer, and of course good music. When i came home, i was wondering about Canadian artists, and besides the famous ones, like Alanis Morissette and Bryan Adams, haha, Canada has a very strong music scene. Here is just a few that i like.
From what i understand about this video is that it was made by a fan of Broken Social Scene and band approved. In warp speed, images (a lot of which are disturbing) are shot across the screen like bullets, or bombs and gives the viewer a ff look into the lies and problems of this world.
If you don’t know by now,…. if this world keeps heading in the direction it’s headed then we’re all fucked. We are not heading in the right direction and we haven’t been for many years.
Turn of tumblr, turn on the news. Get off youtube, and facespace, omegle, and msn, and AIM or whatever and open your eyes. We need to do something now.
