a few months ago, while enjoying a wonderful sunny day and listening to kexp, this lovely version of *dramamine* appeared by sunkilmoon.

although, i have never truly given in to mark kozelek’s red house painters and other cover projects, sun kil moon’s tiny cities brings me back to the reasons of why I love modestmouse.

strictly full of isaac brock’s experimental harmonies, this cover album shares an earthy haunting richness that highlights the music’s underlining fragility.

i believe it is one of the most difficult tests to take over songs and make them yr own, it doesn’t happen very often and shouldn’t.

*tiny cities* is not groundbreaking, but doesn’t have to be. this is no rendition, just simply a tribute made by real fans inspired from the magic of music and giving back to what they’ve already received.
[…yr killing the better part of me…]
i said what i said and you know what i mean
i can’t keep focused on anything

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
