Random Songs From My Phone – Little Green Cars – Big Red Dragon

Back from vacation.  A quick post to, hopefully, liven up your day. Today’s randomness invokes some indie/folk rock by an Irish group known as “Little Green Cars”. The single is “Big Red Dragon” and is taken from their 2013 album “Absolute Zero”. Picked this one up from iTunes free single of the week. Good singer and a well tweaked production equals an interesting song that has some ear worm potential. The lyrics, a bit cryptic, and a bit dark. Not a single that I am completely in love with, but not one I skip when it comes up on shuffle.

Song Of The Day – Young Buffalo – “Upstairs”

A pretty good tune from indie band Young Buffalo.  A trio out of Mississippi, they have a sound that has a bit of a British vibe to it, and could easily be mistaken for Vampire Weekend.  The video is pretty interesting as well.

Nice song by Brooklyn based Here We Go Magic.  The song, “How Do I Know” was released off their “Different Ships” album from 2012 on the “Secretly Canadian” label.  Enjoy.

Believe it or not, the people who did this are recording artists in their own right.  The group, Walk Off The Earth, hails from Burlington, Ontario and have been together since 2006.  Their most recent album R.E.V.O., released this year and is their third recording.  The video here is their song “Red Hands” off of the album.  This song is receiving a lot of play on CBC2 here in Canada.
