the D’yer Mak’er

saw this photo posted on the Dinghy Shop Instagram account and had to wonder:

how can this boat builder not be called the D’yer Mak’er?

When I read the letter you sent me, it made me mad mad mad
When I read the news that it brought me, it made me sad sad sad
But I still love you so
And I can’t let you go
I love you
Oh, baby I love you, oh

today’s tunes: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds “Galleon Ship”

for today’s tunes, a selection from the latest album “Ghosteen” from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

For we are not alone, it seems, so many riders in the sky
The winds of longing in their sails, searching for the other side

if you don’t know some of the back story about Nick Cave in recent years, look into it a little bit (his teenage son died in an accident in 2015).  you can feel the raw emotion in a lot of his songs on this album.

here’s an album review from Pitchfork that gives some background on it: https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/nick-cave-and-the-bad-seeds-ghosteen/

 

today’s tunes: eminence front (snow jam)

stranded in Asheville, North Carolina due to the snow storm, Dave Grohl joined Gov’t Mule for what sounds like it would have been an amazing set – playing some great covers of iconic rock songs.

because, why not?  sure, he could’ve laid around in a hotel room watching crappy TV, but instead decided to jam for a couple hours and put together an amazing set of songs.

Setlist:
“Play” (Foo Fighters)
“Since I’ve Been Loving You” (Led Zeppelin)
“You Don’t Know How It Feels” (Tom Petty)
“All Apologies” (Nirvana)
“Breakdown” (Tom Petty)
“Helter Skelter” (The Beatles)
“Bitch” (Rolling Stones)
“Hunger Strike” (Temple of the Dog)
“Dear Mr. Fantasy” (Traffic)
“Eminence Front” (The Who)
“No Quarter” (Led Zeppelin)
“Simple Man” (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

here’s their version of “Eminence Front” by The Who.

The snow packs as the skier tracks
People forget
Forget they’re hiding
Behind an eminence front

several more videos from the concert are available here.

today’s tunes: the gloaming – the Booley House (live at the NCH)

this is a beautiful instrumental song by the group known as The Gloaming (I’ve posted previous songs from them here).

the video is a brilliant time-lapse of a pen and ink with watercolor sketch by Donegal-born Limerick-based illustrator Jacob Stack.

the Booley House will be on their upcoming album: Live at NCH (will be released on Real World Records on March 2nd 2018.)

 

today’s tunes: Spark – by Niklas Paschburg

I heard this song the other day on “All Songs Considered” on NPR with Bob Boilen, and just loved it.  I found the video later and love the nautical theme as well! the song is an instrumental, an ambient soothing blend of piano and synthesizer.  from the NPR site:

Niklas Paschburg is a German composer woven from a similar cloth as Nils Frahm, Daniel Wohl and other artists who stand at the intersection of classical and electronic music. The gorgeous, wayward “Spark,” from his debut album, Oceanic (out Feb. 9 on 7K!), captures the atmosphere of the Baltic Sea coast where he recorded it.

today’s tunes: ain’t that a shame

Fats Domino – may he rest in peace.

today’s tunes: nineteen hundred and eighty five

a sailor on the Sunfish Forum was looking for help determining the age of his Minifish, and posted this hull ID number. 


the last 2 digits indicate the year the boat was built: 1985. 

makes me think of this groovy number by Sir Paul, himself no stranger to the Sunfish sailboat!
