Bombino “Iyat Idounia Ayasahen (Another Life)”
from Agadez (Cumbancha 2011) —This guitar player from Niger is one of the most exciting musicians to appear in recent years. Hypnotic, propulsive, and thrilling.
Television “Marquee Moon” (Elektra 1977) —Speaking of thrills - I've never heard this song without being absolutely grateful to be in the presence of something this perfect.
Amanda Shires “The Garden Song”
from Down Fell the Doves (Lightning Rod 2013) N —I was just struck by the musical similarities between Amanda Shires and another fiddler who works outside genre constrictions, Andrew Bird.
Kim Richey “Breakaway Speed”
from Thorn In My Heart (Yep Roc 2012) N —If you can get Jason Isbell to sing a duet with you, and then add Trisha Yearwood on harmony vocals, you're doing all right.
Richard Barone “Law of the Jungle”
from Clouds Over Eden (Mesa 1993) —After refalling in love with Richard Barone's Cool Blue Halo material, I revisited this record for the first time in ages, and yep, it holds up, too.
The Beatles “Here Comes the Sun”
from Abbey Road CD Album (Apple 1969) —Every once in a while, I like to just remember how genuinely wonderful this song is.
Soup Dragons “Crotch Deep Trash”
from LoveGod (Polydor 1990) —This band sounds better now than I think I realized they were at the time.
Chuck Prophet “The Left Hand and the Right Hand”
from Live at KDHX - Vol. 11 (KDHX 2013) N —This great live version can be yours if you become a member of KDHX during the drive Oct. 3 - 12.
