Sunday Music (Early Edition): Mark Mulcahy - "You're My Blessing"
Mulcahy was singer for Miracle Legion, a band I admired in my college days. There's a "tribute" album called Ciao My Shining Star full of his songs out now with covers by Thom Yorke and Michael Stipe among others. The genesis of the project was the death of Mulcahy's wife and subsequent financial difficulties of the singer and two young children. I'm not going to link to the rather snide Pitchfork review, which is actually sort of an apology for the record being made at all. I recommend picking up the CD and point you to tracks by The National, Yorke, Juliana Hatfield, and Autumn Defense.
