Kishi Bashi’s cover of Beirut’s “A Sunday Smile” is one of my favorite songs, and now videos, of 2013.
This cover serves as the b-side for “Manchester”, the first of three 7″ singles from 151a. Order the 7″ box set here and see Kishi Bishi live here. The video originally premiered on All Songs Considered and the very talented string quartet is comprised of Sara Caswell and Joe Brent (violin), Beth Meyers (viola) and Andrea Lee (on cello).
Since i’ll be in the car for the long trek home after another great holiday, today’s good is a bit different. I can’t drive without listening to something. I love talk radio in the morning and music on the way home from work in the afternoon is the best. A little bit of both on long drives is my favorite. So without further ado, I’d like to give a little shout out to my favorite podcasts that make those long drives bearable (and help me discover new music on regular basis).
