Deep Cuts Hour 1 (5/14/11): This show featured a menu of talented musicians. We started off with some Bruce Springsteen.
I love Bruce Springsteen, I blame it on my mother. She was obsessed with him when I was little and with good reason. In the 80’s Springsteen was an important and consistent hit maker. Anyways, back to the point. D. Grant served up “You’ll Be Coming Down” from his Magic album (2007) and “When You’re Alone” from his Tunnel of Love album (1987).
Deep Cuts Hour 2 (5/21/11): This show featured some amazing alternative rock. From Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Social Distortion, and so many others. Another song that stood out to me is “Daylight” by Better Than Ezra.
A track from their Before the Robots album (2005), this song showcases the band’s talent, which is ironic because unless you are a diehard Better Than Ezra fan you probably haven’t heard it. It has great rhythm, but the part that attracts me to this song is the lyrics.
And you’re feeling old
And the morning cuts you
Like a knife
And you’re wearing thin
Feel you’re giving in
In the darkest hour of the night
You find daylight
You’ll find daylight
Deep Cuts Hour 3: D. Grant continues delighting our musical tastebuds with some great tracks from popular indie artists. Death Cab For Cutie, Ingrid Michaelson, Ben Harper, Sufjan Stevens and many many others. One artist featured was KT Tunstall.
Everytime I hear her name, I think “Black Horse and Cherry Tree” D. Grant served up “If Only” from her Drastic Fantastic album. Check out the video, it’s got a pretty good concept. Basically, don’t be scared to fall and get hurt, because you can get right back up and shake it off.
Deep Cuts Hour 4: This show will feature some great rock, including classics like Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles to the present, like Matchbox 20 and Radiohead. Don’t miss out!
