Patty Griffin & Robert Plant “Ohio” [LIVE Music Lounge 2013]
Patty Griffin and Robert Plant joined forces for an epic performance at ACL Radio’s Live Morning Broadcast during SXSW in 2013. The two performed “Ohio” off Griffin’s album American Kid.
Tough times have called for many artists to find creative ways to stay connected with fans. Griffin launched her own music series on Instagram called Patty’s Friday Features where the artist recommends some tunes she’s been listening to “in the hopes that [we] find something, maybe new, that [we] will love too in these difficult times.” Listen to the latest episode where Griffin features “Yumeji’s Theme” by Japanese composer Shigeru Umebayashi.

This is a song called “Yumeji’s Theme” by Japanese composer Shigeru Umebayashi. Originally written for a film called “Yumeji” by Seijun Suzuki (which I have not seen) – I first heard this song in Wong Kar-wei’s film “In the Mood for Love.” If you haven’t seen it – first, I’m jealous because it’s incredible! And you should know that it’s a very romantic film but in the best possible way- not at all annoying- just beautiful. When I hear this song I feel a mysterious sense of joy in there with all the sorrow and longing. I hope you are all hanging in there and some good days are finding their way to you. ❤️ Patty #SHIGERUUMEBAYASHI #YUMEJISTHEME #INTHEMOODFORLOVE #MAGGIECHEUNG #TONYLEUNG #WONGKAR-wai

Two Door Cinema Club “Sleep Alone” [LIVE ACL 2012]
Back in 2012, Two Door Cinema Club joined us for a killer performance backstage at ACL Fest. The Norther Ireland group performed “Sleep Alone” from their sophomore album Beacon.
In 2019, the band dropped their fourth studio album False Alarm. Two Door Cinema Club dropped their latest project Lost Songs (Found) in June 2020. The collection of rarities includes seven tracks, featuring B sides from their Tourist History album, original demos and first studio versions. The group didn’t discuss their upcoming release on social media until the night before, tweeting a seven second video tease with the caption “Tomorrow.” In a statement, the band said, “We felt that it wasn’t the right time to be promoting [Lost Songs (Found)] because of the Black Lives Matter movement. It still doesn’t feel like the right time to be honest but thank you to everyone who has listened to it.” Read the full statement and stream Lost Songs (Found) below.
