In the car, out of the car. Down the Turnpike, up the Turnpike. Stop near Philadelphia. Back in the car, wrong turn. Home at last. And how was your Thanksgiving? Yada yada yada ate too much and here we are back for a Saturday Spin.
This week finds us in the mode of listening to Joseph Arthur. He’s got a beautiful voice. Writes somes really good songs, the latest of which can be found on his new album, Nuclear Daydream. They’re haunting me – I must buy this cd.
So the story goes something like this – a Joseph Arthur tape gets slipped to Peter Gabriel (by whom is not really important,
mainly because I didn’t take notes) somewhere in the neighborhood of ten years ago. Peter Gabriel likes what he hears and Joseph Arthur is in business. About ten albums (give or take a few ep’s) later, it seems he may just be hitting his stride on Nuclear Daydream (I mean who doesn’t need music to daydream to – even if it is nuclear!?).
You can listen to the whole album and read up on Joseph here: PRESS PLAY. Once there, click on Joseph Arthur Radio on the right side.
And for those who just like a visual to hang out with on their Saturday spin, below is a video for the song Even Tho from a couple of albums back, Our Shadows Will Remain.
Hey it’s nice to see family, but it’s good to be home.
Have a great weekend.
