For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Annika” by Björn Olsson

Just relax, there's nothing wrong with this house…

Just relax, there’s nothing wrong with this house…

Time to take a break and relax for a couple of minutes with some excellent whistling.

Don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with this random cabin that you’ve stumbled upon in the woods. Just relax and enjoy.

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Running for Cover” by Warren Dunes

Freaky Outie…

Freaky Outie…

Hey. Listen. LISTEN! I know that this very song was my Wednesday Listening Pleasure back in March. But Warren Dunes didn’t have a music video for the song back then! Also, they especially did not have a music video that was directed by my good friend (and non-incidentally bandmate in The Crazy Boy Floyds and retired Yellow Fool in Fools Play Improv) Geoff Gibbs. HERE IT IS (I bet you didn’t think I’d actually show it to you after that, but whysoever would you think that, you should know me better). Partake and enjoy!

Whoa.

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “40 Days” by Conan O’Brien & The Basic Cable Band

The end of an era…

The end of an era…

Last week was the final episode of Conan O’Brien’s late-night show as we know it. Come next year, he’ll be launching a brand-new show with a brand-new format. There are some things about this change that are very exciting! But one thing that’s not so exciting: his new show will not have a house band.

So for their final episode, Conan O’Brien let Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band tear up the place. Here, partake and enjoy for the last time:

I watched the very first episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien back in 1993 when it was the Max Weinberg 7, and I’ve been with these guys ever since. It is sad to see them go.

For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Fool” by Frankie Cosmos

You make me feel like a fool…

You make me feel like a fool…

I first heard of Frankie Cosmos (which is not the actual name of any members of the band) only a couple of weeks ago, because this song was used in an amazing new cartoon series that I’ll tell you all about soon. I believe this song might be the very definition of “twee.”

I also love that this song is barely over two minutes long. I love songs that don’t overstay their welcome. In fact, on the album that this song is from, the longest track is only 2:43 and many songs are under two minutes.

Also, the lead singer, Greta Kline, is the daughter of academy-award-winning actor Kevin Kline and famous actress Phoebe Cates! Now you know!

Anyhoo, hope you enjoy(ed)!
