Take 2@2 Thursday, September 22, 2016

whitestripeswhite

Take 2@2 for Thursday, September 22nd, 2016 it is now Fall. Autumn officially began at 10:21am Eastern Time today. Ah yes the season for Octoberfest, baseball playoffs, Halloween, voting, football, apple picking, and mother freaking gourd decorating is upon us.

fall

My birthday is in late November when Fall becomes less desirable. The world begins to decay and I get older. Boo hoo. For those reasons The White Stripes song “Dead Leaves & the Dirty Ground” will always be one of my favorite Autumn songs. You can find it on the WS album White Blood Cells.

The cover is from Chris Thile’s album How to Grow a Woman from the Ground. Thile, as you may know, got his first mandolin at the age of 2. He’s be a member of Nickle Creek and Punch Brothers, plus he also received the MacArthur Genius Award. Next month, Thile will take over hosting duties for NPR’s Prairie Home Companion.

I hope you enjoy today’s Take 2@2, sponsored by Brown Automotive Group.

Take 2@2 Wednesday, September 21, 2016

various_positions

Take 2@2 for Wednesday, September 21st, 2016 today is Leonard Cohen’s 82nd birthday.

leonardcTo mark the occasion, Cohen has released a new song. “You Want It Darker” is the title track to his upcoming album here’s a snippet:


The album is being released on October 21st. In 1984, Cohen released the album Various Positions which included the song “Hallelujah.” The tune was then forgotten about until sometime. The cover which we are going to play resurrected the song. “Hallelujah” popped up again this week. During Sunday night’s telecast of The Emmy Awards, Tori Kelly performed the song during the In Memoriam segment.

Jeff Buckley’s version of “Hallelujah” is from his 1993 album Grace. Buckley draws you in as he hauntingly pulls at the lyrics of the song. Each time I listen to his version, I feel that I’m alone in a small room enjoying a cathartic experience.

I hope you enjoy today’s Take 2@2, sponsored by Brown Automotive Group.
