The Promise Ring : B is for Bethlehem

Building on yesterday’s post, this is The Promise Ring, which is the band that Davey Von Bohlen started after the demise of Cap’n Jazz.

Cap'n Jazz : Take On Me

I have posted the original and a different cover of this song. This time, Cap’n Jazz is up. I was one of those people who retroactively discovered Cap’n Jazz, by the way of The Promise Ring. 237 more words

Most of my favorite albums require a few good listens to understand the true magic behind them.  It’s just a sign of good songwriting– something that while not instantly tangible can have genuine staying power.  668 more words
