Time zone: central
Joe Louis Walker “Hellfire” (Alligator 2012) N —Among the most talented contemporary blues performers - this record is a scorcher.
The Bo-Keys “Weak Spot”
from Got To Get Back! (Electraphonic 2011) —That's the great William Bell singing this soul gem from last year. Wish I could have seen these guys in town the other night.
Dave Alvin “Rio Grande”
from Ashgrove (Yep Roc 2004) —I love when itunes shuffle reminds me of something I haven't heard in several years.
Chuck Prophet “The Left Hand and the Right Hand”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) N —He put on an excellent show at Off Broadway last night - I couldn't stay for all of it, but I saw nearly an hour of excellent rock.
Bhi Bhiman “Take What I'm Given”
from Bhiman (Boocoo Music 2012) N —I would also have liked to catch this ex-St. Louisian in his triumphant return to town the other night. I'm really liking everything I've heard on his debut album.
Charlie Brumley “It's Right the First Time (Kathleen, Kathleen)”
from The Linden Years (self 2012) N L —An excellent song from this St. Louisian, the leader of the Educated Guess.
The Change Music Variety Show “Simple - Now!”
from Now! (Tony Patti 2012) N L —Fabulous and catchy from a much-longer song cycle by a very talented St. Louisian who hasn't made his music public in a long time.
City Squirrel “Lockerbie”
from Defeat (Red Pill 2012) N —Former St. Louisian Stephan Bayley has a new album coming out with a different batch of City Squirrel associates - this is the first single, and it's a corker.
Finn's Motel “Early Spring” (Unknown) N L —St. Louis band has released this song in download form - presumably an album will follow soon.
Bruce Springsteen “Swallowed Up (In the Belly of the Whale)”
from Wrecking Ball (Columbia 2012) N —One of the two bonus cuts on the deluxe edition of the album, and a chilling cut indeed.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
