I gotta say, Leonard was and continues to be one hell of a classy looking guy. So glad he’s still out there touring and making music.

My latest video effort(and the first of three to go up this weekend), all about Record Store Day and some of the best artists on that gigantic list!
Bill Callahan: “So Long, Marianne” (Leonard Cohen Cover)
If ever there were an heir apparent to the poetic legacy and measured grace of Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan would be my pick—with perhaps Jens Lekman, in terms of humor, being a worthy runner-up. Now the man formerly known as Smog has joined a host of artists paying their debt to Cohen in the wake of his new record with a reverent cover. Joining the likes of Will Oldham, emerging 24B fave Michael Kiwanuka, Cass McCombs, Marc Ribot, and others, Callahan mined Cohen’s debut LP for a faithful take on “So Long, Marianne.” Stream it above, while samples from MOJO’s full tribute disc can be previewed here.
I can’t even tell you how perfect I feel this cover is.
And here’s another video I got around to putting together today, in this case a review of Leonard Cohen and his newest record “Old Ideas”. As always check it out if you like, and check out my Youtube channel while you’re at it.
A new video from yours truly, talking about some of the music that came out this past week!
