The good folk over at Daytrotter do some wonderful work. This afternoon I emerged after a much overdue dig through their archives with a fistful of gorgeous tracks.

Today’s session came courtesy of the fantastic Motel Motel. This version of ‘Coffee’ from their 2008 release New Denver is superb. I love the crisp piano and train-like beginning. Check out the rest of the session here.

David Vandervelde’s 2008 album Waiting For The Sunrise is quite a winner in my book, and this take on my favourite track ‘Someone Like You’ is fantastic. You can hear more here.

Wild Light’s ‘California On My Mind’ is a song that I never get sick of. Simple and catchy, it’s got such a great sound. This take seems to be a half-step faster than the album version, giving it extra energy, and the harmonica is fab. Check out the rest of the tracks here.

You’d be pretty hard pressed not to like this track. The harmonica, the harmonies, the shimmery cymbals…it’s all lovely, and there’s more to explore here.
