Ike Reilly “Morning Glory”
from Hard Luck Stories (Rock Ridge 2009) —Ike Reilly churned out some awfully good records these past few years, somehow turning into one of my favorite contemporary musicians.
Emory Joseph “Brown-Eyed Women”
from Fennario (Megaforce 2008) —See how much better Grateful Dead songs can sound when performed by somebody with talent?
from OK Computer (Capitol Records 1997) —While I don't think they ever hit these heights again, I still love OK Computer whenever I hear something from it. And a major influence, I believe, on Punch Brothers.
Dr. John “Revolution”
from Locked Down (Nonesuch 2012) N —Okay, if Dan Auerbach can help make this record sound so good, then he must not be completely hopeless.
Super Maroon “When the Lights Are On”
from demo (none 2012) L —One of the fine St. Louis bands who will be playing tonight at Off Broadway for the REM tribute to help support KDHX.
City Squirrel “Seeking Out Approval”
from Defeat (Red Pill 2012) N —A grinder from ex-St. Louisian Stephan Bayley. The man knows how to write tunes.
Split Enz “Nice to Know”
from Dizyrhythmia (Mushroom 1977) —Methinks it would not upset Mr. Bayley if I mention he sometimes reminds me of this great band.
Rufus Wainwright “Perfect Man”
from Out of the Game (Decca 2012) N —Rufus has done many things in his spectacular career, but this song makes me want to dance, and that's not something he's done before.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
