Episode 361

Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 361

This episode featured a couple of tracks from Mice Parade's 2010 album What It Means To Be Left-Handed. I didn't really get into this record when it was released last year but I've come back to it over the past few weeks and it's really growing on me. The album is book-ended by two beautiful tracks. I love the cover of Tom Brosseau's Mary Anne which closes the record. The album opens with the gorgeous, frolicking Kupanda, performed by Mice Parade and kora player Abdou with Swahili vocals from Rwandan/Ugandan-descended singer Somi. It's great stuff. Track eight on the record is Mallo Cup, a Lemonheads cover and below is a nice solo acoustic version by Mice Parade's Adam Pierce.
