a place for us

If you're a regular reader of Stereogum (and if you read this, you should be, cause it's much better), you may have caught their post linking to the cingular commerical featuring Chan Marshall (aka Cat Power) singing "Hanging On The Telephone." The Nerve's cover (which was popularised by Blondie) was arranged by singer/songwriter Sam Bisbee, who was hosting it on his site, til the Stereogum shoutout overworked his bandwith. I managed to rip the audio into an mp3 (sans the talking bits... sorry, if you were looking for a new cel phone plan) before the ad got taken down...

download: Cat Power and Sam Bisbee - Hanging On The Telephone

In more Cat Power, ad-related, audio goodness, here's a mp3 rip (again with the talking edited out) of Chan's (very brief) take on Leonard Bernstein's "Somewhere," that was featured in a spot for TIAA-CREF.

download: Cat Power - Somewhere

Head over to Vanmega if you want to take a listen to the rest of the Broken Social Scene set that I posted a song from last night.

The PFork reports that Fiona Apple will open for Colplay for their Vancouver date on January 26th at GM... this is still not enough to make me endure Coldplay... not even close.

Also from Pitchfork: Animal Collective are going to blow your friggin mind on March 2nd... they play Richard's.

now playing: Sarah Harmer - Will He Be Waiting For Me? (Dolly Parton Cover)

Hi there. Great blog.

Hey I know I guess I missed the boat a bit on this but is there any chance you could post up those two Cat Power clips for a second time? Or maybe email if it moves you?

I'd be happy to Boycott Sony products for the rest of my
life in exchange.

Please and Thank You.
