Bluesette (Toots Thielemans & Elis Regina)

Not only does this arrangement feature Elis Regina on vocals, Toots whistles the counter tune! He even sings a little.

By the Riverside (Southern Gospel Revival feat. Ben & Micah Hester)

A modern take on the old spiritual

We Were Only Dreaming (Tides of Man)

You get the feeling something amazing is about to happen …

… and then it’s over.

Runaway Train (The Brothers Landreth)

Hipster country blues?  Totes.


(I swear that’s “Feelin’ Groovy” at the end.)

Lazy Eye (Silversun Pickups)

Ah, the trials and tribulations of millennial love

Heads Will Roll (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)

It’s Weird Wednesday of Hipster Week. Why did you invite the werewolf?

(A drummer friend of mine suggests this as an alternative to the triple Y’s.)

Curse the Weather (Mo Lowda and the Humble)

Dedicated to all my tattooed, bespeckled, sandaled, and sometimes bearded pals hanging at Dig a Pony, it’s Hipster Week* at the Humming Moose. (Yes, it starts on a Tuesday. And it probably won’t last all week.)  If you have a deck request, shoot me.



*Don’t awk if you don’t like the label. “Hipster” music is really Indie music.
