Episode 3 in Sam’s “Something…” series is a borrowed song from Daniel Lanois.
A quick note about Lanois:
“Sometime in high school, I stopped listening to playlists of my favourite songs and started listening to whole albums exclusively. It wasn’t some play to be a highbrow music snob or anything, I just went looking for something else from music and found some real emotional resonance in the art of an album as a whole. One thing worth denoting about this mode of musical consumption is it teaches you what artists you really connect with. I went through phases where I’d parasite off one artist exclusively: Metric, Bon Iver, Death Cab for Cutie, The Antlers all had their own phases. I still adhere to this trend today. Recently I’d been on an exclusive Joni Mitchell listening diet for 6 months. I was driving home one night after some session and a Lanois song called Sillium’s Hill came on CBC radio 2. I got into his first release “Acadie” and have been on a Lanois diet ever since.” – Sam
