SATURDAY SPIN

Next up - Liam Finn. Liam is a young singer songwriter from New Zealand who is an up and comer. I swear that I heard his music and enjoyed it before I realized he is the son of Neil Finn of Crowded House fame (who incidentally have a new and great sounding album out themselves). Also, Liam played on the new Crowded House album and is touring with them. So, all in the family.

But Liam deserves his very own spotlight and so we shall cast one on him solo. The video below is for his song, Second Chance, from his album, I'll Be Lightning.

BLAH BLAH BLAH: SPIN MAGAZINE ARTICLE


I'm posting this a little ahead of Saturday as I know my strengths, as well as my weaknesses. One such weakness is an acute inability to wake up in the am*. I have to be out extra early for Tali to run through her current song with an accompanist at music school. We can't have anything between my bed and the front door to stop me.

I knew you'd understand. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!


*Actually another less than strength of mine is my lack of knowledge of things techy. I just realized that I can auto post by just plugging in a future time so look for this once you've had your morning coffee. G'night.

OK, techmaster, but the video doesn't seem to be there. Shabat sholom.

Doug said...

There ya go. Pretty good. The video seemed sort of Pink Floydy and the singing kinda Arlo Guthritic.

I like Crowded House - this dude is not bad for an up and coming musical son. Have a very nice rest of the weekend!

I cannot tell what I like more, the song or the video. One has to be very professional to make a video so amateur looking.

Thank you, have a great weekend!

Doug, everything just resolves itself on my blog. Yes, I definitely see the PinkFloyd connection, now Arlo Guthric - maybe you're on to something!

Terry, he seems not be resting on his laurels as far as I can hear.

Ariel, I know - I was thinking "wouldn't that be great to make a video like that..." Then again, I do have a nephew who is into film.


Okay, have a good night all. Monday is lurking in the shadows but not before I go hear Terry at Doug's!

G'night.

That's cool that they split-screened him singing the harmony part. I haven't seen that before. Great tune... as usual!

Jeff, I went back to watch that - cool indeed. :)
