Song of the day: Justin Kline – "How I Became The Wind"

March 22, 2011

I’ve already played you a few songs by today’s artist, but I’m in the mood to play you another one.

Here’s American multi-instrumentalist / writer-of-horrendously-catchy-songs Justin Kline with a track from his latest album, Triangle / Six Songs*:

(*Have you bought your copy of Justin’s album yet? What do you mean “No, I haven’t.”? It’s only $10. What’s stopping you? Oh, I see. Well, maybe you can save up for it. Or maybe someone can buy it for your birthday. What’s that? You haven’t even heard of Justin Kline? Well, he’s an American musician who writes horrendously catchy songs…)


Musical coincidences # 66

January 8, 2011

My friend Stonefish (Hi, Stonefish!) recently posted a song on his blog. The song was “Military Madness” by Graham Nash. I like that song a lot but hadn’t heard it in years. Because I had only remembered the chorus, I was looking forward to hearing the while thing again. As soon as it started, though, I thought “Hey, the way that starts reminds me of the way another song starts…”

So, here are two songs with fairly similar introductions:

Graham Nash – “Military Madness” (1971)

Justin Kline – “Singing In The Air” (2008)

I guess that’s all they have in common, really. But it gave me an excuse to play you a song by Justin Kline. (I like Justin’s songs.)

Song of the day: Justin Kline – "All I Need"

November 13, 2010

I don’t know if you remember, but some time back I pestered you with a couple of songs by Justin Kline (here and here). Up until now, Justin had released a couple of EPs – Six Songs (2008) and Triangle (2010) – in the totally unacceptable* format of digital downloads. But they are eminently affordable. ($6 for Six Songs and $4 for Triangle. Bargain!)

Well, I’m extremely pleased to let you know that Justin has collected all the songs from those EPs and released them as a CD. (A CD! Yay! None of that download nonsense.) You can buy it here for ten bucks. (Still a bargain.)

So, in honour of knowing that an actual CD of Justin’s fiendishly catchy songs is now available, here’s one of them:

Justin Kline – “All I Need” (2008 – and now 2010)

Song of the day: Justin Kline – "Baby, You’re A Mess"

August 9, 2010

Do you remember last month when I said that if I had an award for New Song Of The Week then “Baby, You’re A Mess” by Justin Kline would easily win it? (No, I wouldn’t have remembered that, either.) Well, here it is:

Justin Kline – “Baby, You’re A Mess” (2010)

Fabulous.

“Baby, You’re A Mess” is the opening track of Justin’s four-track EP, Triangle, which you can buy for a grand total of $4* at Bandcamp:

Song of the day: Justin Kline – "Alison, We Cannot Be Friends"

July 5, 2010

I was contacted last week by a chap from Tennessee called Justin Kline who asked rather politely if I wouldn’t mind letting people about his music. Justin pointed me in the direction of a few songs to listen to, so I had a listen to them and thought “Hey, these songs are good.”

This is one of them:

Justin Kline – “Alison, We Cannot Be Friends” (2010)

Very nice.

Oh, and if you visit Justin’s website please go to the little music player at the top of the page and play “Baby, You’re A Mess”. If I had an award for New Song Of The Week, then “Baby, You’re A Mess” would win it. Easily.
