Soul Musical Interlude – Sunny

If you have 6 minutes in your day that you want to devote to a musical moment, plug in your best earphones and enjoy the Ann Street Soul Stirrers’ performance of “Sunny” recorded in their living room:
 

Natalie Lungley

Natalie and Matt Lungley’s web performances have been pretty good for a while, but often left me feeling that they lacked punch: they felt mostly just a bit too slow and a bit too soft. But with this performance of “Kiss Me” by “Sixpence None The Richer” Natalie and Matt are very convincing. It passed my test: I listened to it more than 20 times in the first 2 days after discovering it.

I’m adding here Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah covered by Natalie Lungley. I still find that it lacks bite, but still after hearing the “Kiss Me” performance, I am enjoying this recording more.

Karmin: Best Web Vocal Performance

Karmin Music is what music on the web should be: pure raw talent. No marketing or other manifestations of the machine between the artist and the listener. Here are two covers from Karmin Covers. They are both so beautiful and wonderful that knowing that  Nick Noonan and Amy Heidemann is like those russian figure skating married couples: it makes no sense for a man and woman to do something so beautiful and not be in love.

These 2 are so beautiful that not linking to a nice photo of Karmin them would be a web error.
