On ideas

A Mass of Nothing

Category Archives: casey shea

I have been meaning to write about Casey Shea ever since I was introduced to his music while away in Europe. He is a very friendly chap that continues to kick my ass at Words with Friends and he is also a great songwriter. He brings a flair for old-time songwriting while, seemingly, exorcising the ghost of George Harrison. I have been really enjoying his album Love is Here to Stay and it is high on my list for a recommended listen.

However, I am writing about Casey today because of a recent cover he did. Florida by Modest Mouse has always been a staple mix-tape track for me and I was thrilled when Casey put his take of the song up on the Family Records blog. I have been listening to his version incessantly and felt it was absolutely necessary to share it with you here.

Have a listen:
