Robyn Hitchcock “Saturday Groovers”
from Goodnight Oslo (Yep Roc 2009) —One could almost randomly pull a Robyn Hitchcock song from a hopper containing all of his material of the last 34 years, and it would probably be great.
Sloan “She's Slowin' Down Again”
from The Double Cross (Yep Roc 2011) N —It's so easy to take these guys for granted, but they write such strong material.
Kelly Willis “Wrapped”
from What I Deserve (Ryko 1999) —She'll be headlinging the second night of Twangfest, next Thursday at the Duck Room, along with her husband Bruce Robison.
Gil Scott-Heron “I Think I'll Call It Morning”
from Pieces of a Man (Flying Dutchman 1971) —Everywhere I look, the obituaries keep saying Scott-Heron was a progenitor of rap; maybe he had soemthing to do with that, but he was so much more a jazz vocalist than a rapper. Just listen to what he does with phrasing here.
Marvin Gaye “Let's Get It On” CD Album (Tamla 1973) —There's nothing wrong with me loving you, and giving yourself to me can never be wrong if the love is true.
Magazine “A Song From Under the Floorboards”
from The Correct Use of Soap (Virgin 1980) —I am ugly, I am ill, and I'm as ugly as sin. Has there ever been a more inviting opening line?
Bee Gees “Lonely Days”
from 2 Years On (Polydor 1971) —Somehow or another, this song penetrated my consciousness back when I wasn't paying much attention to pop music, and then I became a fanatic.
Elizabeth Cook “He Got No Heart”
from Balls (31 Tigers 2007) —She'll be at Twangfest Wednesday night at the Pageant. One of the best young country singer/songwriters out there today.
Robbie Fulks “Let's Kill Saturday Night” (Geffen unk 1998) —This was the big attempt to conquer Nashville - it should have worked. He'll be headlining Friday at the Duck Room for Twangfest.
Eileen Rose “Twenty Dollar Shoes”
from At Our Tables (Evangeline 2008) —Very talented singer/songwriter aided by the legendary Rich Gilbert on guitar - will be at the Duck Room Thursday for Twangfest.
Dave Edmunds “Back to School Days”
from Get It (Wounded Bird 1977) —Dave Edmunds must have figured Graham Parker wrote this one just for him, it's so in his wheelhouse.
Carlene Carter “I Fell In Love” (Reprise 1990) —Oh, how I loved this record back in 1990. Still think it's great.
Peter Case “Trusted Friend”
from The Case Files (Alive 2011) N —Case does the solo guitar/singer thing about as well as anybody out there these days.
