Video of the Day

This is pretty great. Aimee Mann did a shot-for-shot remake (with John Hamm as the Director!) of ‘Til Tuesday’s ‘Voices Carry’ to her new single, ‘Labrador’, from this years Charmer album…

You just gotta love Mountain Goats drummer Jon Wurster as the scummy boyfriend and brief shot of Ted Leo in a fright wig!

Song of the Day

JOE HENRY
Death To The Storm


DOWNLOAD: Death To The Storm

It’s been a couple of years since Madonna’s brother-in-law (yes…that Madonna), Joe Henry, was on The List, but he’s got a new album set to drop next month and for anyone who loves his atmospheric, bluesy/jazzy, warmly narcoleptic tales told in an ever so slightly Tom Waits-y fashion, I think Blood From Stars should make you happy. While he’s probably still better known as a producer of underappreciated R&B veterans like Solomon Burke and Bettye LaVette, or for his work with bigger names like Aimee Mann and Ani DiFranco, Henry’s growling barroom croon and his opulently layered, warm sound instantly draws you into his dark sonic world, populated by lounge lizards, drunks, thieves and whores. Check him out on MySpace or at Joe Henry Loves You Madly
