* Well hey there, it's another one of War Memorial Auditorium's Attic Sessions installments. For Season 2 Episode 6, the WMA folks invited local piano-pop troupe Paper Route into the historic venue. The Route fellas chat about their backgrounds as Christians and their song structures and so forth, and they also squeeze a couple of performances in there. Truth be told, Paper Route's aiming-for-the-heart, eyes-closed pop balladry has never been my speed, but they clearly put their hearts into it. Give that one a look above.
* So, Barefoots Joe is a coffeehouse at Union University in Jackson, Tenn., and they have a performance series called Sound on Film. Since Nashville's own electro-pop road dogs Wild Cub have been tearing up the Internet lately, it was only natural that they stop in at Union and film a segment featuring a performance of their tune "Colour." The boys played a more deliberate, down-tempo rendition of "Colour" — quite different from the urgent, U2'd-out version that appears on WC's Youth. Cool take. See that after the jump.
* Singer-songwriter Angel Snow recently stopped in over at American Songwriter headquarters with her trusty sidekick Todd Lombardo to perform "Holiday." Snow, who has of course penned tunes for Alison Krauss, has a gorgeous voice, and it's a beautiful rendition — if, you know, you like the intimate acoustic singer-songwriter thing. Which, obviously, loads of people do. Enjoy that one after the jump as well.
