SotD: Steve Vai - Brandos Costumes (Gentle Ways)

Submitted by Druss on Sun, 2007-11-04 01:27

I've been listening to Steve Vai's latest album - Sound Theories and have fallen in love with the song Brandos Costumes (Gentle Ways), one that I first heard in his Alive in an Ultra World release. The first time I heard it, I thought that it was a good song, but sounded a little flat or even artificial (with respect to the general ambience in the song).

SotD: Wolfmother - Woman

Today's Song of the Day is the aussie band Wolfmother's big hit - Woman. It and much of the other Wolfmother songs harken back to the glory days of the 70s and they are apparently heavily inspired by Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Moreover, for a three-piece band, they sound fucking tight, and the vocalist, though he looks like a nutter, has a very Plant-sy voice.

SotD: Pearl Jam - Rearviewmirror

Today's Song of the Day is Pearl Jam's Rearviewmirror. The song just has so much momentum more or less all the way through, beginning with that excellent riff. The intro riff is incidentally the work of the lead singer - Eddie Vedder.

This song also holds bitter-sweet memories for me along with the entire Yield album.

SotD: Ayreon - Valley Of The Queens

Today's Song Of The Day is Ayreon's Valley of the Queens, a breathtakingly beautiful vocal-centric piece. A quiet song, its beauty lies in the harmonies provided by the wonderful Anneke van Giersbergen coupled with the poignant lyrics which paint a moving picture (I'm a sucker for all things fantasy after all). I'm seriously hooked onto Ayreon at the moment.

The lyrics follow:

My journey's over,
I'm standing on the edge,
And close my eyes
To this world of lies.

SotD: Bjork Earth Intruders

The Song Of The Day is Björk's Earth Intruders. This is pretty much my first exposure to Björk (pronounced Byerk, like jerk), besides a vague memory of watching the video of Army of me back in the day. Catchy song, different style of vocals and lovely percussions + sound samples.

I've also been watching her videos including this cool one.
