Yeti Quartet "Let's Dance"

This is the first release from our October 2010 shoot with The Yeti Quartet. Filmed in New York City on October 15th in at a midtown practice studio, this is Dana Lyn's arrangement of the David Bowie staple "Let's Dance". We were turned onto the quartet by Justin "the giant fiddler" Smith who, in addition to playing with Yeti, split's time as a Broadway orchestral musician and with our good friends The Defibulator's. After shooting this rehearsal performance, I've started pleading for another shoot in a more public space. We'll keep you posted on that, but for now, hope you enjoy this track.

TWAIN "I'll Be Fooled Again"

We were turned on to Twain and Mat Davidson on a previous shoot for The Spirit Family Reunion. You didn't have to look far to see Mat is a pretty busy splitting time in three bands.  The Low Anthem who has a November tour lined up with Emmylou Harris, playing fiddle for Spirit Family Reunion, and also being the front man for his own trio, Twain.  Mat's vocals are quite simply haunting and I'm not real sure where to begin with the music.  I suppose their own definition of, melodramatic pop songs with western swing and surf influences about covers it.  You can find their first two discs for free download HERE, but the newest one Love Is All Around is the real gem.  I'll keep an ear to the ground and let you know when its available for purchase or download.  For now, I hope you enjoy this rendition of "I'll Be Fooled Again".

Julia Haltigan & The Hooligans

Is it weird for a song writer to let some guy she barely knows decide how the name of a song should be spelled?

A grueling few days were rendered totally worth it when we reeled in a number of gems, including this rendition of his tune Lost On The Ohio originally recorded for last years album Bound For Glory.
