A Case of the Fridays

It’s that time of the week again, so we kick off things with The Last Town Chorus’ version of David Bowie’s “Modern Love.” I like the twist they’ve put on it in this leisurely, hazy cover, tinged with swooping pedal steel guitar lines that's capped off with some beautiful haunting female harmonies. If you like what you hear, they’ll be at IOTA Monday, April 30th.

And we close out with “Everybody Always Leaves,” by Matthew Ryan. He’s great at creating a mood of cold darkness with his lyrics and vocals, which are, in this case, integrated well with the electronic beats. The female vocals in the chorus provide a wonderful lift to the song, as well as a superb counterpoint to Ryan’s sandpapery voice. If you like what you hear, Matthew Ryan will be coming to IOTA Tuesday, May 1st.
