When I was on the radio, I used to get overly enthused about about those instances in which I could make a tangential connection between a song I played and some current event stirring chatter outside of the confines of the on-air studio, taking dorky glee in calling attention to my ever-so-clever association the next time I opened the microphone. It is with that in mind that I believe I would today bolster my playlist with the song “Superhero,” by Eva and the Heartmaker, a group hailing from the mighty Thor’s Norse homeland.
I no longer have a regular radio show, of course, but I do have this little hunk of digital real estate.
Listen or download –> Eva and the Heartmaker, “Superhero”
(Disclaimer: It is unclear to me as to how much of the Eva and the Heartmaker catalog is readily available for purchase in the U.S., at least as a physical object that can be procured from your favorite local, independently-owned record store in a manner that compensates both the original artist and the proprietor of said store. Regardless, I am sharing this track as a celebration of the band’s music, as encouragement to seek out more of their material, and with no malice or ill intention. I do know the rules. I will gladly and promptly remove this from my little corner of the digital world if asked to do so by any individual or entity with due authority to make such a request.)
