“Higher Love” from my favourite Glaswegian band right now, Prides. Look for this single to be released on March 23rd via Island.
Fine Canadian Forces is Toronto musician Jordan Fine who’s been performing music since the age of 6. Studying music at York University in Toronto, Jordan has composed as ‘DJ Freshie’, played as a lounge and showband guitarist on a cruise ship, but most recently has been writing songs specifically based around the loop pedal. He became Fine Canadian Forces and Hebrew Lessons is his first album is the result of a year’s worth of composing/arranging 8 original songs and 5 covers.
Try out one of those covers in Steve Winwoods’ “Higher Love”, which will be the 2nd time in as many months that I’m posting covers of that track. Can’t help it. Its part nostalgia and totally awesome.
Head to his bandcamp to hear the rest of the album.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. recently performed in Indianapolis via My Old Kentucky Blog. In their set they covered Steve Winwood’s classic “Higher Love”, captured on video by MonkeyEatsMonkey. Upon hearing this track, I instinctively get nostalgic and picture the closing credits to Big Business.
You can also watch them perform “Vocal Chords” here.
