KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: BASTILLE - "DOOM DAYS"

I had the pleasure of hosting Bastille’s Radio Dot Com’s Exclusive Album Release Party for Bastille in celebration of Doom Days. The event went down at Chelsea Music Hall here in the city and the guys gave fans a really cool and intimate 7 song set. One song that stood out to me was the title track...

KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: SMASH MOUTH - "WALKIN' ON THE SUN"

Rolling Stone has a great oral history of how Smash Mouth’s "All Star" came to be. In it, they talk about the unique space the band occupied within music at the time. Their breakthrough album Fush Yu Mang produced the alt-radio smash “Walkin’ on the Sun.” This was back in the day when genre...

KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: GOLDFINGER - "TELL ME"

“Tell me what it's like to be with you Remind me of the things we use to do And tell me that this time will never end Tell me what it's like, tell me again” You could read the opening lines and eventual chorus of Goldfinger’s “Tell Me” a couple different ways. They could be addressing their...

KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: BUSH - "GLYCERINE"

Must be my blog, cuz I’m sinking in… Are those not the words? Today’s selection comes courtesy of Bush, with Glycerine. Why Bush? Let’s not political over here. I’m going to see them this weekend out in Jersey. Cane’s apparently going. God help Holmdel. Glycerine is an all time classic in any...

KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: THAT DOG - "HE'S KISSING CHRISTIAN"

When people talk about great 90’s alternative, no one ever brings up That Dog. Shame on people! Great 4 piece out of LA who were active between 91 and 97. They’ve had some one-off reunion shows since with rumors of a new record being worked on as recently as 2017 - but their peak is probably around...

KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: EVE 6 - "OPEN ROAD SONG"

Last week I went to the Songs and Stories show at the Gramercy. Art from Everclear, Max from Eve 6, John from Marcy’s Playground and Chris from Fountains of Wayne each took the stage to not only perform but share some background behind their biggest hits (and sometimes deep cuts.) One particular...

KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: CATATONIA - "MULDER AND SCULLY"

You a X Files fan? Honestly I was too young to watch the show when it was one, but this song bangs and celebrates one of the greatest 90’s television romances. P.S. Do you believe in UFOs? Video of Catatonia - Mulder And Scully (Official Music Video)
