Digging up rare, awesome or obscure tracks…

It’s takes a minute and a half of patience to hear why “A Tender History in Rust” is such a beautiful piece of music, but those early seconds of ephemeral noise give way to the most harmonic, delicate guitar playing; a melody that lingers and lingers and lingers… Très magnifique.

"Rust" closes out the a-side of You, You’re a History in Rust (2007) from Toronto’s almost-all-instrumental band, Do Make Say Think

Today’s Best Song Ever - “Sailing” by The Sutherland Brothers

Digging up rare, awesome or obscure tracks…

Today it’s marching, stripped-down folk from of the Sutherland Brothers, an early ’70s British folk/rock duo. Rod Stewart recorded a cover of the track in 1975 and though it ended up being his biggest-selling single in the UK, the original is so, so, so much better.

Today it’s little known pop-perfection from the Alessi Brothers, identical twins who were one-hit-wonders in both the US and UK; ’70s FM sugar through and through.
