Sleepy Kitty “All I Do Is Dream of You”
from Projection Room (Euclid 2013) N L —This was a single this year, and it's from the new album, out in three weeks, I believe.
Sam Phillips “Pretty Time Bomb”
from Push Any Button (Littlebox Recordings 2013) N —Thanks to John Wendland, number one Sam Phillips fan in the Midwest and beyond, for letting me know this existed. It's not as though I saw it or read one word about it this year.
Beth Hart “Bang Bang Boom Boom” (Mascot Records 2013) —I can't imagine why I put these two otherwise disparate songs together.
Valerie June “Somebody to Love”
from Pushin' Against a Stone (Concord 2013) N —A different kind of banjo song. I believe I heard she will be opening for Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings in March at the Pageant. That's a good double bill.
Cave States “Loose Shoes”
from The Great Divide (Undertow 2013) N L —Two great St. Louis singer/songwriters working together - this is a Chris Grabau song that I really love. And Danny Kathriner harmonizes with him beautifully.
Tift Merritt “For Free”
from Traveling Companion (Yep Roc 2013) N —This companion record was included with the reissue of her album the previous year - nice trick, because this record is really nice.
Madeleine Peyroux “Take These Chains From My Heart”
from The Blue Room (Decca 2012) —I love the way she mixes her own phrasing with homage to the Ray Charles version. Gorgeous.
Ana Moura “Desfado” (emarcy 2013) —I double dog dare you to resist the joy of this Portugese fado song!
