Arcade Folk Song #4

Hi, folks. It’s Tuesday, otherwise known as new releases day for music and movies. Here at seejoesmile.com, we adhere to the tradition and, for the past 3 weeks, a new song has been shared. Today marks the occasion of the fourth and final song release for the Arcade Folk EP. “Month of May” is another track from┬áThe Suburbs, Arcade Fire’s Grammy-Award winning album. I’ve brought the tempo to a slower pace and stripped it down to just vocals, piano, and acoustic guitar. http://seejoesmile.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Arcade-Folk-Month-Of-May.mp3 If you enjoyed this song, please share it with a friend.

Arcade Folk Song #2

Last Tuesday, I launched the Arcade Folk EP, that has been in the works for a few years. As promised, I’ll be releasing a song each week until all 4 songs are available to download for free. Song #2 is “Modern Man”, off of the Arcade Fire’s third full-length,┬áThe Suburbs, which earned them a Grammy for Best Album in 2011. This is a very different take on the song, thanks to a djembe and a little inspiration from Nirvana’s Unplugged set in 1993. Enjoy!...

Arcade Folk Launch!

Greetings, friends. Today, I’m happy to share the opening song of my second Folk Series EP, Arcade Folk. “Keep The Car Running” is one of my favourite Arcade Fire songs so it made sense that it would be the first song I covered for the Arcade Folk EP. I’ve also test-driven this one at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market a few times. http://seejoesmile.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Arcade-Folk-Keep-The-Car-Running.mp3   The rest of the Arcade Folk EP will be available, 1 song at a time over the next three weeks. Feel free to share a link to this song with your family and friends.
