Time zone: central


Alejandro Escovedo “Bottom of the World”
from Big Station (Fantasy unk 2012) N  —Just a casually brilliant little song from one of our best.


Paul Kelly “God Told Me To”
from Songs From the South: The Best of Paul Kelly (Gawdaggie 2011) —Uh oh - you know that song title is going to lead to a character doing nasty things.


The dB's “Before You Were Born”
from Falling Off the Sky (Bar/None Records www.bar-none.com 2012) N  —A typically brilliant Chris Stamey number.


Brothers Lazaroff “The Waltz of No Time”
from Science Won (self-released 2012) N L —My fave song on a very fine record from the St. Louis-based twins and their band.


Grey DeLisle “Tell Me True”
from Graceful Ghost (SUGAR HILL www.sugarhillrecords.com 2004) —The ache in this song goes straight to my heart. Beautiful but sad.


The Coal Porters “Gospel Shore”
from Find The One (Prima 2012) N  —Sid Griffin takes up the gospel form - and I didn't even realize the sublminal connection between this and the previous song, both of which have autoharps.


David Olney “Snake Song”
from One Tough Town (Red Parlor 2007) —One great songwriter covers another (this song is by Townes Van Zandt).


The Dead Reckoners “You Tell Me”
from Night of Reckoning (Avid 1997) —All the artists on the Dead Reckoning label got together to make this fine album sampling their talents (this one features Mike Henderson) and then the label disappeared.


Waylon Jennings “Will the Wolf Survive?” (MCA 1985) —Waylon Jennings wasted no time in picking up on Los Lobos.


The Blasters “Maria Maria”
from Fun On a Saturday Night (Rip Cat www.ripcatrecords.com 2012) N  —Cool Mexican-inspired Spanish version of the Blasters classic.


Eddie Palmieri “Tema Para Eydie”
from Listen Here! (Concord 2005) —A lushly romantic and stunning showcase for Palmieri's piano chops.


Linval Thompson “Long Long Dreadlocks”
from Cool Down (Culture Press 1995) —Hypnotic reggae at its finest.


The Viceroys “Last Night”
from The Viceroys at Studio One: Ya Ho (Heartbeat * 1995) —And sweetly enchanting reggae here.


Antibalas “Dirty Money”
from Antibalas (Daptone 2012) N  —You may be able to sit down, but I bet at least some part of you is moving to this hot hot groove.


Otis Clay “Don't Burn the Bridge”
from I'll Treat You Right (Rounder Blues www.rounder.com 1992) —Deep soul-blues, with some good advice - "Don't burn down the bridge, you might want to come back when you find the grass ain't no greener on the other side of the track."


Etta James “Beware”
from Live at Montreux 1975-1993 (Eagle Records 2012) N  —Etta James was magnificent in 1993. This cut burns.


Allison Moorer “Dying Breed”
from Show (Universal 2003) —I still remember discovering this record by catching a televised showing of the DVD back when it was new - I hadn't heard Moorer before, but she instantly became one of my favorite singers in the world.


Bonnie Raitt “Used to Rule the World”
from Slipstream (Redwing Records 2012) N  —Bonnie Raitt lays down the funk on this one.


Joan Armatrading “Your Letter”
from Love and Affection: Classics 1978-1983 (A&M 2003) —See kids, back in the day, if people were far apart, they would often send each other items in the mail as communication. I used to get a thrill every time I got an envelope from somebody in another town.


Rufus Wainwright “Respectable Dive”
from Out of the Game (Decca 2012) N  —Slowly but surely, I'm being seduced by this magnificent new record. Rufus Wainwright remains my fave songwriter under 45.


Carole King “Yours Until Tomorrow”
from The Legendary Demos (Hear Music 2012) N  —This was the revelation on this album to me, because I've never heard Gene Pitney's version (or any other), and this song is astounding.


Tommy James & The Shondells “Gotta Get Back to You”
from Anthology (Rhino 1989) —Who knew these guys had funk in them?


Nick Waterhouse “Is That Clear”
from Time's All Gone (Innovative Leisure 2012) —It sounds like 1964, but it's right now.


The Clash “Clampdown”
from London's Calling (Epic 1979) —What are we gonna do now?


The Small Faces “Itchycoo Park”
from Small Faces (Sanctuary 1966) —It's all too beautiful.


The Tell-Tale Hearts “Won't Need Yours”
from Children of Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the Second Psychedelic Era, 1976–1995 (Rhino 2005) —Consider this little three-song set a return of the More Cowbell segment - best part is I didn't remember any of them had cowbell until I heard them this morning.


Elvis Costello “Sunday's Best”
from Armed Forces (Rhino 1979) —I had to order this single through the mail (see the comment a few songs ago about the olden days). It is essential Costello.


Crossfire “Fiberglass Jungle”
from Cowabunga! The Surf Box (Rhino 1996) —You gotta love a short surf instrumental when it's the end of an hour.


Shoes “Diminishing Returns”
from Ignition (Black Vinyl 2012) N  —So nice to have these guys back.


Southern Culture on The Skids “Muswell Hillbilly”
from Countrypolitan Favorites (Yep Roc 2007) —A spectacularly fun take on the Kinks classic.


Karate Bikini “Liar's Parade”
from Sauce of the Apple Horse (self 2012) N L —They'll be playing outdoors next Thursday, Aug. 30 in Grand Center across from the Fox. I saw them last week, and this band is on fire live.


Bleu “B.O.S.T.O.N.”
from Four (The Major Label 2010) —This is pop music generated specifically for my DNA, I think.


Finn's Motel “Accelerate and Brake”
from Escape Velocity (Scat 2006) L —Ginormous riff rock.


Sugar “And You Tell Me”
from File Under: Easy Listening (Deluxe Remaster) (Merge Records 2012) N  —A pretty nifty track that wasn't on the original of this album.


The Vondrukes “Take It Away”
from Runaway, Goodbye Love (self-releases 2011) —They'll be at the Race for the River Festival in Frontier Park, St. Charles, Sat at 1:30. I caught them last weekend, and they are terrific live.


Tom Verlaine “Coming Apart”
from Words From the Front (Collector's Choice 1982) —Harrowing song ripped from a letter home written by a soldier in WWI.


Radiohead “Fake Plastic Trees”
from The Bends (Capitol Records 1995) —Still one of the most beautiful songs of the last 20 years.


World Saxophone Quartet “In a Sentimental Mood”
from Plays Duke Ellington (Nonesuch 1986) —Swoon-worthy.


Heritage Blues Orchestra “Going Uptown”
from And Still I Rise (Raisin Music 2012) N  —Best blues album of the year? Could be.


Arthur Alexander “Genie In the Jug”
from Lonely Just Like Me (Elektra 1993) —Alexander recorded this terrific album heralding the fact that he hadn't lost a step, and then he promptly passed away.


Robbie Fulks “Bluebirds Are Singing For Me”
from Revenge! (Yep Roc 2007) —This song makes me happy, even though I'd never want to live in the Blue Ridge mountains myself.
