Hello, I'm Yaniv and welcome to my workshop!
You can now find all the songs I've ever released (or collaborated on) in a neat, ever-grown Spotify playlist!
New releases are on top, and below you'll find all the songs I've done neatly organized for your enjoyment
6.21 - HUGE "The National" project!
The post is probably too long to copy here so I'll just link it.
Featuring 13 new tunes from The National, including some huge hits and fan favorites. Among the songs released: Fake Empire, Terrible Love, Mr. November, Graceless, Slow Show, an epic 8-minutes live version of About Today and many more!
This has been my main charting project for a while now and it's good to get it out there. Amazing band and I hope I did them justice!
Also, some really great openers by Wilco, Big Thief, Silver Jews and Cass McCombs!
Thanks again Egead, BornGamerRob, Derek and Zombie Capone for working with me on this project!
Hope you like it! Check out the post, it's quite nice
On an unrelated note, I've also collaborated with AJFOne23 on Bruce Springsteen's masterpiece "Incident on 57th Street". One hell of an epic song. Check this one out right here.
Also, newly available is a Spotify playlist of all the songs I've ever released or collaborated on! It's quite something and it will keep growing! Listen here
See you next time!
25.5 - Singles by Suede and Bruce Speingsteen!
Suede - Outsiders
Suede first appeared in 1989, but by 2003, they were ready to call it quits. Like many bands, though, Suede just couldn't stay broken up, and by 2010 the band was together again. At first the reunion was only to play a few concerts, but a few became a few more, and then Suede found themselves back in the studio, recording new music. Six years later they were still going strong and still coming up with new tunes, with 2016's Night Thoughts garnering some of the band's highest critical accolades. "Outsiders" was that album's lead single.
Bruce Springsteen - The Rising
Springsteen had been "The Boss" for nearly 30 years when he released The Rising in 2002. With his finger still firmly on the pulse of blue-collar America, Springsteen wrote and sang about the subjects that weighed heavily on every American's mind that year, specifically the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, how it changed America's place in the world, and how Americans themselves should respond. These thoughts and verses resonated well with Springsteen's listeners and critics, and the title track in particular was deemed one of Springsteen's best in recent years.
5.17 - "Rylan" by the National on release day!
As you may know, The National - one of the biggest bands in Indie Rock - are releasing their new album, "I Am Easy to Find", today. And I'm very happy to bring you a track from this album, as a full band custom, on the day of release.
Just to be clear: this song was not available as a single (or in any other way) beforehand.
It is not a live version, or any of the previously available versions. It is the studio version, released today, and this version was not released on any platform before today.
So here we go!
"Rylan" was only officially released today, but National fans would have known it for a while. It was premiered 7 years ago, and played live fairly often - even as part of an official KEXP set - but never made it to the records, until now.
It's a big anthem, that's both joyous and sad at the same time, as per usual for the National. The story of a quiet, shy, introvert child, who wants to be special ("Rylan you should try to get some sun, you remind me of everyone"), some suicidal thoughts ("Rylan you could take the quick way out"), classic National lines ("If you want to be alone, come with me"), before exploding into an emotional climax.
It's already shaping up to be a career highlight, and makes a great band song. You can listen to it here:
So hopefully that keeps you occupied for a while until leg 3! This is not only a special opportunity to play this song on release day, but also a teaser to a full National pack - who'll be released as a part of leg 3! So if you like the band - there's a lot more to look forward to
More from the National, and many, many other great artists, is waiting for you in Leg 3 - which beings in Friday, May 24th. So stay tuned!
5.14 - Paul McCartney 5-Pack!
Thanks farottone for sending me some of his old stuff to complete - hope I did a good job!
Going all the way back to 1970, this is a lovely tune from McCartney’s debut album, whose release pretty much led to the official announcement that the Beatles broke up. It was actually briefly rehearsed by the Beatles for the “Let it Be” sessions – with John playing a slide guitar that wasn’t included in the final solo version. It’s another lovely acoustic love song, this time with full band and some tricky instrumental parts. Another great classic by McCartney.
yThis one probably doesn’t need too much introduction. This ballad from 1984 is one of the standouts of McCartney’s solo career, a beautiful single with a great melody, and two guitar solos by none other than David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. A huge song and we’re so happy to finally bring it to Rock Band.
The title track to Paul McCartney 1993’s album, a nice, melodic, rocking tune. The guitar chart is very interesting, with 2 solos and a lot of leads and licks spread all through the song. There’s also some really nice 3-part harmonies. Great song and a classic opener to a great album.
yaniv297 writes "Nice, beautiful acoustic love ballad from McCartney’s 1997 album Flaming Pie. Even thought that particular song was recorded way back in 1992. Guitar is fairly tricky, and vocals are really nice. A great one to chill between the rocking tunes."
Taken from 2007’s “Memory Almost Full”, “Mr. Bellamy” tells the story of a gentleman standing on top of a building and threatening to jump. A curious, jumpy and fun song, it’s a favorite of many, and absolutely great to play in Rock Band.
