SQF Radio #7

How 'bout some music?  Here's SQF Radio #7.  (Spin the big list here.)

  1. Sufjan Stevens - Casimir Pulaski Day.   A sad song if ever there was one.   "Oh, the glory that the Lord has made, and the complications you could do without...":

  2. Blitzen Trapper - Stranger in a Strange Land.    I'd stop putting Blitzen Trapper on these lists if they'd just stop writing excellent songs.   They refuse to do so, however, so here you go.   Some great lines in this song.   If there is ever a film-student type documentary on the band, I think "All My Love Songs Fall on Wasted Ears: the Music of Blitzen Trapper" would be an awesome title.    Also, can we all get together and have Bob Dylan cover this?

  3. Counting Crows - Mercy.   Speaking of great lines, I nearly wore this song out when it was released, just to hear the line, "but there is a train bound for Gilead" line over and over.    If you need some new listening material, you could do far worse than the band's recently-released album of covers.

  4. Spirit Family Reunion - Alright Prayer.    Note to Spirit Family Reunion: you're doing it right.   They are a New York-based band, and I'm not even sure they've released an album yet, but they combine bluegrass, Americana, folk, and old-time gospel influences into some feel-good music.  Here's a sample:
