The Belle Brigade “Shirt”
from The Belle Brigade (Reprise 2011) N —Thanks to Spencer Marquart for introducing me to this extremely cool brother & sister pair with more than a small nod to 70s Fleetwood Mac.
Chris Isaak “Crying Waiting Hoping”
from Listen To Me: Buddy Holly (Verve Forecast 2011) N —You can take the majority of "interpretations" of Buddy Holly classics on the 2 new tributes to appear this year & chuck them in the river, but Chris Isaak absolutely nails this one!
Matthew Sweet “When Love Lets Go I'm Falling”
from Modern Art (Missing Piece 2011) N —Strange to release a brand new album but tour behind a 21-year-old clasic. He'll be here playing Girlfriend on Oct. 15.
The Undertones “Teenage Kicks”
from The Undertones (Ryko) —One of the greatest songs in the world - after 32 years, I still get pumped up every time I hear it.
Bill Frisell “Across the Universe”
from All We Are Saying (Savoy 2011) N —OMG! This is so luxuriously beautiful. Frisell, Greg Leisz on pedal steel, and Jenny Scheinman on violin completely own one of my all-time fave songs.
Ellis Paul “The Dragonfly Races” (Black Wolf 2007) —He'll be at Off Broadway tomorrow night, Oct. 1.
Johnnie & Jack “Ashes of Love”
from ??? (???) —Johnnie Wright, who co-wrote this classic & was married to Kitty Wells, passed away a few days ago.
The Ethiopians “Reggae Hit the Town” (Sanctuary 2001) —Dillon went on to record great reggae at least through the 80s, but I immediately went back to those glorious ska/rock steady cuts from the early days.
Funkadelic “Cosmic Slop” (westbound 1973) —All the ingredients of a masterpiece right here.
The Gourds “Drop What I'm Doing”
from Old Mad Joy (Vanguard 2011) N —I think I've actually randomly picked the same song from this new Gourds record both times that I've reached for it. At least it's a really cool song.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
