7:00am

Velvet Underground “Foggy Notion”

7:07am

Brian Eno “Mother Whale Eyeless”
from Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) (EG Records 1974) —Ah, those early tuneful Eno records still sound lovely, don't they?

7:12am

Talking Heads “Swamp”
from Speaking In Tongues (sire 1983) —Ah, 1983, my first job in a record store. We had something like 50 records we were allowed to play in the store, of which fewer than 10 were ones I enjoyed. I played this album just about every day I worked that year.

7:20am

The Soul Rebels “Night People”
from Unlock Your Mind (Universal Music Group International 2012) N  —New Orleans brass band funk with a hip-hop twist.

7:24am

Curtis Mayfield “Billy Jack”
from People Get Ready: The Curtis Mayfield Story (Rhino 1996) —Not anything to do with the movie I saw when I was 13 (the movie everybody I knew saw when I was 13, in fact), but some pure Mayfield funk.

7:32am

Paul Weller “Green”
from Sonik Kicks (Island 2012) —Paul Weller plays with synthesizers & echo chambers. It's not his strength, but it's definitely fun.

7:35am

Chuck Prophet “Play That Song Again”

7:38am

The Byrds “So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star”
from Younger Than Yesterday (Columbia 1967) —Cynical and yet thrilling.

7:40am

Vertigo Swirl “Braying For Revolution”
from Swirl 3 (Rubber Stamp 2011) L —St. Louis band led by sometimes brilliant songwriter Brian Andrew Marek - this album has a lot of very cool psychedelic pop songs.

7:44am

Future Clouds and Radar “This Is Really a Book”
from single (Euclid 2010) —Recorded live on the stage in Euclid Records a coupe years back.

7:46am

7:50am

Pete Townshend “Pure and Easy”
from Who Came First (Ryko 1992) —The older I get, the more I appreciate the musical genius of Pete Townshend. When I was younger, I just dug the catchy hooks and the big rock flourishes, but I hear more and more depth all the time.

7:56am

Fleetwood Mac “Show Me a Smile”
from Future Games (Reprise 1971) —Christine McVie wrote so many beautiful songs. This is an early one.

8:03am

The Primitives “Amoureux D'une Affice”
from Echoes and Rhymes (Elefant 2012) N  —Gomez Adams would be so happy - they're speaking French. Seriously, it's great to know this delirious pop combo from the late 80s is back again in fine form.

8:06am

The Figgs “Do the Bounce”
from Sucking in Stereo (Hearbox 2000) —A very short but instructional song.

8:07am

8:18am

Anders Osborne “Black Tar”
from Black Eye Galaxy (Alligator 2012) —Slide guitar and bone-crunching thud! Yeah, I'll take it. The Black Keys wish they could rock like this.

8:23am

Ornette Coleman and Prime Time “Spelling the Alphabet”
from Virgin Beauty (Portrait 1988) —A short burst of harmolodic genius.

8:24am

Norah Jones “Out on the Road”
from Little Broken Hearts (Blue Note 2012) N  —We made the official decision the other day at the record store to move Norah Jones out of the jazz vocals section. She's still an amazing singer, but this is a rock/pop record, and a darn good one.

8:29am

Bob Dylan “Queen Jane Approximately”
from Highway 61 Revisited (Columbia 1965) —Sometimes you just have to hear the classics.

8:34am

Albert Hammond “It Never Rains in Southern California” (Collectables 1973) —It occurred to me that this song is a lot better than I used to think it was. So I listened, and yup, it is.

8:57am

Dinah Washington “Fast Movin' Mama”
from Ladies Sing the Blues 1945-1957 (Mercury 1997) —Every woman wants her lovin', yes it's plain to see, but when she can't find her man it's because he's here with me.

9:02am

9:11am

from Science Won (self-released 2012) N L —I love that Rough Shop follows an acoustic record with electric, and the Brothers Lazaroff follow an electric record with acoustic.

9:27am

The Duhks “Camptown Races”
from Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster (American Roots 2004) —Doo-dah!

9:31am

Gram Parsons “Still Feeling Blue”

9:34am

Emmylou Harris “Hold On”
from All I Intended to Be (Nonesuch 2008) —A beautiful song written by Jude Johnstone, and nope, I don't have any idea what her own records sound like, though she has several.

9:38am

The Mastersons “The Other Shoe”
from Birds Fly South (New West www.newwestrecords.com 2012) N  —Halfway in between Buddy Miller and the Jayhawks - not a bad place to situate yourself, methinks.

9:44am

Johnny Cash “Rose of My Heart”
from American V: A Hundred Highways (American 2006) —Not everything Cash did on the American albums was created equal; this Hugh Moffatt song, for example, is devastatingly beautiful.
