Leann Grimes – Cats & Dogs in Idaho


I’ve been pretty crazy about The Head and the Heart this year (starting in December) and was able to see them live back in February with Bret.  I knew they would get big this year…

Anyways, Shane Conerty (AKA Leann Grimes) put together an album full of wonderfully mixed songs.  The songs that really caught my ear were “Cats & Dogs in Idaho” and “Ms. Grimes.”  Shane doesn’t mashup any music but puts his own personal touch to the song, much like Big Z Remixes does.  I think this type of music needs its own name.  It’s not necessarily a “remix,” and it’s not a “mash-up…”

Hmm…  Things to consider.

Other dogs that can be found on the album include:

  • “Egyptain Robe”, by Miniature Tigers 
  • “Memory Boy”, by Deerhunter 
  • “Got To Move”, by CAKE 
  • “Under Cover Of Darkness”, by The Strokes 
  • “Shadow People”, by Dr. Dog 
  • “Mrs. Cold”, by Kings Of Convenience 
  • “Excuses”, by The Morning Benders 
  • “One Last”, by Avi Buffalo 
  • “Mary”, by Yellow Ostrich 
  • “World News”, by Local Natives 
  • “Keep Me In Mind”, by Little Joy 
  • “Summersong”, by The Decemberists 
  • “The Wild Hunt”, by The Tallest Man On Earth 

You can listen/download songs from the album from his bandcamp page.   You can also go to his SoundCloud page and download from there.  Once again, this is more chill music for you to add to you summer mixes.
