Eight Line Poem (David Bowie Cover)

Bowie circa 1971

With nearly a month since David Bowie passed, I am still reflecting on the loss of a musical hero. Hunky Dory is my favorite of all of Bowie’s albums.

After I don’t even know how many years of listening to it, I never really paid much attention to the lyrics until now. Such a beautiful song.

 

I decided to record a cover of “Eight Line Poem”:

The tactful cactus by your window
Surveys the prairie of your room
The mobile spins to its collision
Clara puts her head between her paws
They’ve opened shops down West side
Will all the cacti find a home
But the key to the city
Is in the sun that pins
the branches to the sky

Have a Listen. I hope you enjoy it.

“The Even Ground” Review

The Even GroundToward the end of last year, I got an email from a contributor to The Even Ground, an Indie Music Review website, who had been checking out Four Day Beard on bandcamp. inviting me to submit our music for review. Needless to say I was flattered and Submitted the songs for review.

I was impressed with the music featured on The Even Ground website. Their focus is promoting only music they actually like and targeting die hard music fans. I love this approach. As a music fan, the mainstream hype of the same 50 bands gets tiresome and I think most music lovers are really craving new, honest, hard working, authentic artists.

Matt Jensen from The Even Ground wrote a pretty flattering and encouraging review with comparisons to Wolf Parade, Sparklehorse, The Flaming Lips and Broken Social Scene. These comparisons are definitely a compliment. Check out the full review here at theevenground.com
