“Roads” by Portishead

April 12, 2009

One of the Chum Master’s favorite tunes.  “Roads” premiered on Portishead’s 1994 debut album Dummy which is considered a seminal trip-hop album and also appeared at #419 of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.  Haunting electronic music…hard to describe other than to say it’s wonderful.  Learn more about Portishead at their official website or on their Myspace page.

“Upward Over the Mountain” by Iron and Wine

October 26, 2008

Another great artist on Subpop Records.  Sam Beam is a talented singer-songwriter that records and performs under the name Iron and Wine.  The song featured in the video, “Upward Over the Mountain,” appears on Iron and Wine’s album The Creek Drank the Cradle. This is another great song without an artist produced video to accompany it, so enjoy this video produced by Xavier Reivax.  It’s not half-bad.  The second song featured is Grant-Lee Phillip’s “St. Expedite.”

Check out Iron and Wine’s official website or on MySpace for more info.
