I am 99% sure it was a free track that I received from Salon.com back when they used to do free music promotions (meaning they found free songs around the web).
Shazam was unable to identify it for me.
I don’t know the name of the band or the song.
Does anyone know what it is?
As I mentioned above, I’m fairly sure that I came across this song via Salon’s now-defunct “best free music” service. It made its way onto my iPod (somehow having lost the ID information along the way) and I can remember riding my bike and thinking that it was both unique (at least to me) and haunting. That’s the best word I could describe for it.
I contact Salon.com and no one there could help me (it had been some time since I had originally downloaded it).
I recently stumbled across it again and really wanted to know what it was. I had hoped that Shazam would be able to identify it, but they weren’t (a rarity, in my experience).
So I posted it here, but since I have no idea if anyone reads this, I thought I’d post it to Twitter.
Twitter Comes Through
Update: I posted this question on Twitter and had a flood of answers in less than 10 minutes. Apparently I hang out with bunch of young, hip, “alternative” people. Fortunately they don’t know I’m an old fogey who isn’t sure a whole lot of good music was even made after The Joshua Tree.
So, without further delay, the song in question is by “Summer at Shatter Creek” and the title is “Your Ever Changing Moods”. There are at least three versions of it on iTunes, but the one above appears to be this one.
