Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Collaborations Featuring Wilco, Harmer, Cuddy and Skydiggers

Just a random post of music today. Was thinking about all the collaborations recently (like Strokes and Eddy Vedder or Vedder and My Morning Jacket) and so I went back into my collection to pull out a couple of my favorites to share with everyone.

First up is the Skydiggers. A long time Canadian favorite, back in 1997 they released the album Desmond's Hip City on the DROG label. One of the songs I really liked was called "Dear Henry" which featured guest vocals by Sarah Harmer and piano by Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy.

Up next is same Jim Cuddy. A year later he would release a solo album called All In Time. He had a bunch of great artists play on his record but two of them that stood out were then Wilco members, Jeff Tweedy and Jay Bennett. I remember reading something about the band just happening to be in town that day so they sat in and contributed some vocals and instruments to a song called "I'll Make Believe It's You"

So there's the backstory and now here are the songs. The songs are on Rapidshare but each are up individually and not zipped. Just the way it had to be done this time.

Jim Cuddy w/Jeff Tweedy and Jay Bennett-"I'll Make Believe It's You"

As a further bonus, the Skydiggers have some new songs up on their website. They have a limited edition album out called Dark Hollow, featuring band members Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson and in their own words "and is a collection of acoustic based songs that represent the attitude of our sound when we perform as a duo."

Skydiggers-"What Man Would"

Skydiggers-"Losing Altitude"
