It’s All About the Music

So if you were busy last weekend when the WXPN All About The Music Festival was streaming all that great live music (or like me, trying to simultaneously mind the BBQ and listen – not easy) Sweet Oblivion has ripped some audio, including Brandi Carlile’s set and Jim James from My Morning Jacket.

Brandi also cranked out one additional tune which was not broadcast on the streaming audio show, but thanks to little music elves I have a copy for you. It is a quality version of her wrenching cover of Radiohead’s Creep, in all of its angsty glory. I think it is a really lovely cover:

Creep” – Brandi Carlile

  • Although she sounds a bit stress out, I like this song. Thanks for the upload.

    I hate to get off topic, but I wanted to ask your opinion Heather on Chirs Cornell of Audioslave? Mr. Cornell has written the theme song for the new James Bond flick, Casino Royale, and I wanted to know from your musical expert mind if you think it might be good or not?

    As always, keep up the fantastic work.

  • Hey, Heather. Thanks for this one. I was bummed when I heard she played another tune that didn’t make the broadcast. Gotta love the little music elves…

  • Thanks for posting the previously unaired version of Creep. I was able to see her play this set live (yes, it was awesome) so I got to hear it in person, but I still want to hear it on my iPod too. :)

    Hope you’ve been able to see her life too. I have a feeling you have.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
