The Slits “I Heard It Through the Grapevine”
from Cut (4 Men with Beards 2005) —Ari Up, the lead singer of this important punk/post punk band, passed away yesterday at only 48 years old. I always loved this dub heavy take on Marvin Gaye.
Javier Escovedo “Tonight Is Gonna Be Better”
from City Lights (Javier Escovedo 2008) —I had no idea the former True Believer and brother to Alejandro had recorded his own record - thanks to Rock'n'Roll Confidential for the tip. Very nice.
XTC “Me & the Wind”
from Mummer (Virgin 1983) —Bonus cowbell - Cat recommended this one - I'd forgotten it as both a terrific song and a great source of cowbell.
The Pretenders “Time the Avenger”
from Learning to Crawl (Sire Records 1984) —I was planning to play this song anyway - reminded by a Facebook friend of its insatiable groove - but then I realized there's a cowbell on it, too.
Elvis Costello “Dr. Watson, I Presume”
from National Ransom (Hear Music 2010) N —The album comes out Nov. 2 - but I get to sample tracks here at the station now. Makes it worth getting up all by itself.
Chuck Prophet “Would You Love Me?”
from Soap and Water (Yep Roc 2007) —He's playing tomorrow night at Off Broadway - also an instore set at Euclid Records tomorrow afternoon at 4 pm. I'll be at a wedding on both ends, but I'm sure it will be great.
Richard Barone “Radio Silence”
from Glow (Bar/None 2010) N —It's so nice to have new music from this terrific songwriter - his last new record came out in 1992 or something like that.
Peter Case “Dig What You're Puttin' Down”
from Wig! CD Album (Yep Roc 2010) N —I like when Peter sings the blues.
Marshall Chapman “Mississippi Man in Mexico”
from Big Lonesome (TallGirl 2010) N —This beautiful record comes out Tuesday - as usual, Marshall Chapman puts ithings better than most people.
