I have a playlist on my iPod that consists of…

A total of TWO SONGS! Songs I keep hitting replay for so I decided the easiest thing for me to do would be to create a playlist and just put that on replay.

Anyway – my EXTENSIVE LIST OF… two songs… 😦

1. Keep Me Waiting – Dana Williams

Alright, first things first: the video above… Play it! I was introduced to this singer when a friend of mine went to see her gig in the states and started RAVING about her and I can see why. Her sound is very blues-y and I immediately thought of Cat Power while listening to her song above. It’s very rare that I come across a sound like his that I absolutely SWEAR by!

Go to her website or listen to her on SoundCloud or YouTube

2. Friends Die But Words Don’t – Vegans in Furs

Vegans in Furs are an amazing rock band from Cork. Originally Porn for the Blind (I’m sorry, but I would listen to these guys JUST for their names: “Hey, I’m going to see Vegans in Furs“… That would be amazing!) Friends Die But Words Don’t have a line in it

Mistletoe can be deadly if you eat it but a kiss is deadly when you mean it.”

(Batman Returns, anyone?)

I went to a gig by Porn for the Blind earlier this year and I cannot describe how amazing their music was. They performed one song that had a ton of people on the dance floor performing really low squats for about a minute. (It was called ‘Get Low’ or some variation)

I can’t embed soundcould onto my webpage for some reason so until I rectify that issue you can listen to their songs here.

Also, I’m about 99% sure a buddy of mine is the drummer.
