The Joy of Discovery

One minute, a song doesn’t exist. The next, it rules your world.

A week ago, I had never heard Bruce Springsteen’s “Radio Nowehere.” Now, a few dozen listens later, I know it inside-out and can’t believe I survived nearly four decades without it. Likewise, until a couple of days ago, I was completely unaware of Canadian singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher, whose Goodbye Blue Monday album (already out north of the border) is due for stateside release on September 18. But thanks to a care package from Trip, I’m now fully intoxicated by his heady, infectious brew of low-key guitar pop. Please welcome Mr. Fisher as he makes his Teenage Kicks debut.



Listen to Jeremy Fisher - "Scar That Never Heals"

Listen to Jeremy Fisher - "Cigarette"

Buy Goodbye Blue Monday

He sounds like Josh Rouse, and he plays the mandolin. What's there not to like? Thanks, guys.

And the louder you play it - the better it sounds. Those guitars smoke!! ;-)

Jeez. You guys have gotten me to drink the Kool Aid. Again.
Maybe I should just go ahead and get the jumbo economy size already.

Thanks for posting the youtube on "Cigarette".
Brilliant video!!
