King Khan & the Shrines “Of Madness I Dream”
from Idle No More (Merge 2013) N —Allmusic says he is "the garage punk underground's one and only trans-national multicultural psychedelic soul shaman." I guess so.
Anders Osborne “My Son”
from Peace (Alligator 2013) N —You just never know from song to song what you're gonna get from this guy, but it's pretty much always enjoyable.
RICK JAMES “Hard to Get”
from Anthology (Motown 2002) —Once you've written "Super Freak," what can you do but try to do it again?
Jon Dee Graham “Sleep Enough to Dream”
from The Great Battle (New West 2004) —Graham had originally done this when he was in the True Believers, but I really like the Tunnel of Love feel of this remake.
Melody Den “Going Back”
from Storylines (Perdition 2013) N L —Just the sound of this cut is enough to make me happy, nevermind that it's also a great song.
Free Energy “Somebody's Baby”
from Single (Download 2013) N —This was the KDHX download of the day yesterday - how could I resist a band I really like doing a song I've always liked?
The Kinks “Trust Your Heart”
from Misfits (Arista 1978) —An oft-overlooked but perfectly lovely Kinks number.
Camera Obscura “I Missed Your Party”
from Desire Lines (4AD 2013) N —This may be my fave song from this band, which has long hovered on the edges of catching my attention.
Iggy Pop “I Need More”
from Soldier (Arista 1980) —A better record than I thought it was 33 years ago.
Peter Wolf “Sleepless” (Epic 2002) —I cut my sleep short just to bring you this music every Friday morning. Oh, that's not what he's singing about, is it?
Spin Doctors “If the River Was Whiskey” (Ruf www.rufrecords.de 2013) N —I bet if I didn't tell anybody who this was, people would think it was the best unreleased Canned Heat song ever made.
Beth Hart “Swing My Thing Back Around”
from Bang Bang Boom Boom (Mascot Records 2013) N —You know, I like that singer in the Alabama Shakes, but she kind of reminds me of Beth Hart, only Beth Hart has better songs & arrangements.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
