Sons And Daughters – Gilt Complex


This track pounds with unrelenting guitars, driving rhythms, and sexy vocals.   Oh, and hand claps… yes, I’m a sucker for hand claps, so sue me.   This track comes from their third album called, “The Gift”, which was released this last October and can  be purchased here.

Sufjan Stevens – Free Man In Paris


This is a cover version of Joni Mitchell’s, “Free Man in Paris” that was originally released on her 1974 album Court and Spark.

This track can be found on a 2007 tribute to Joni Mitchell compilation.   Stevens kept only the lyrics and let the words inspire him to write a new arrangement and melody for the song.  

Stevens has stated that with his cover he “decided to conjure up a party song, with strings and trumpets and trombones and vibraphones marching in a parade down the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, all lit up with fireworks.”
