Ted's Song of the Week - 7/11/06

Certain Kind of Light
Gus Black
Autumn Days

When I first heard this track, I got the feeling that I had heard this artist before. As far as I knew, Gus Black was simply an emerging Indie artist on the music scene. After a bit of research, I found that the guy has been around for the last ten years and has contributed a song to the original Scream soundtrack. He's the artist who did the bang-up job of covering Blue Öyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper." At that time, he was simply going by the name of Gus. Go figure!

"Certain Kind of Light" is one of those rare tracks that I enjoyed from the very start. It's bold, simplistic, and subtly intense. A great song for a roadtrip mix.

To find out more about this up-and-coming artist, check out his
official website or myspace page.

As an added bonus, check out Black's BOC cover. He definitely adds a unique touch to the song.

That BOC cover is pretty sweet...but it could have used a little more cowbell.
