Music Friday: "Everybody's Trying" & "Bury Me Deep"

Back when I was an undergraduate, my friends and I went to a concert in Truman's Baldwin Auditorium. We had never heard of the band before, but after we went to the concert by Poi Dog Pondering, I promptly bought their new album at the time, Wishing Like a Mountain and Thinking Like the Sea

For some reason, I've never purchased another album from the band, and I'm not sure why. I really enjoy the album ~ interesting lyrics, folky vibe. In a lot of ways, the music encapsulates a certain part of my life and brings back memories. 

I've had it in my car this week, and here are some tunes from Wishing..., the first of which is their very first TV performance probably sometime in 1990 or 1991.

Do you know the explanation of the name Poi Dog Pondering? In Hawaii, poi dog is slang for someone of mixed ethnicity ("all mix up" like poi, as they say). They sound good; any of them from Hawaii?

Not that I know of, but they might. They're a Chicago-based band that is still doing its thing. Then I just did a bit of research. They formed in Hawaii in 1986:

Of course, right after posting this, I ordered their latest studio album, 7.
