It’s weird when I hear about a band that I should have already heard of because they’re sort of already quite famous. Steel Train are one of those bands. They have supported loads of other bands (including Tegan and Sara, Ben Folds, Silversun Pickups, – Hanson! – and the Barenaked Ladies). They’ve also performed on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Show With David Letterman. Unsurprisingly they’re pretty good to listen to! Enjoy.

I don’t have much time to update today but if you’re listening for a tune to enjoy try this for size: The Silent Forest – Falter Discover
In honour of my winter beard this week’s Band Of The Week are The Beards. Hailing from Australia they do comedy songs mostly about beards. I was going to pick “It Only Takes A Fortnight…” but I thought that “If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard, You’ve Got Two Mums” had too ridiculous a title to ignore. Enjoy!

Aaron Wright is one of the acts that were in the running for the Hogmanay stage in Edinburgh this year and the song “Go On Yer Self” is catchy with a fun rocknroll feel. Enjoy.
Four Year Strong – Wasting Time (Eternal Summer) seeing as the weather is so peachy today.
