Devotchka “100 Other Lovers”
from 100 Lovers (Epitaph 2011) —I can never really understand what he's saying, but I love the sound of this band so much!
Robert Pollard “Top of My Game”
from Normal Happiness (Merge 2006) —Robert Pollard is in Guided By Voices again, and they were just declared by the White House Press Secretary to be the greatest rock'n'roll band in the world.
Andrew Bird “Danse Caribe”
from Break it Yourself (Mom + Pop 2012) N —I'm very impressed with the couple of songs I've heard so far from this new record. Bird may finally be taking full advantage of his enormous talent.
Leonard Cohen “Going Home”
from Old Ideas (Columbia 2012) N —Even though he can barely force his rasp into a melody a lot of the times, his recitations are beautifully musical. I love this record.
Jon Cleary “Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky”
from Occapella! (FHQ 2012) —This album comes out in a few weeks - it's a brilliant tribute to the brilliant Allen Toussaint.
Dave Alvin “Kern River”
from West Of The West (Yep Roc 2006) —Of coursse Merle Haggard sings it better, but honestly, I know this version so much better so it feels more right to me.
Tift Merritt “Your Love Made a U Turn”
from Tambourine (Lost Highway 2004) —I'd kind of forgotten how enjoyable this record was - soul revival in the alt-country world.
