Cheap Trick “ELO Kiddies”
from Cheap Trick (EPIC/LEGACY 1977) —I do the unexpected, and play this song in the middle of a set, rather than as a way to say hello. We go the extra mile at Sound Salvation to keep you surprised.
Alejandro Escovedo “Sally Was A Cop”
from Big Station (Fantasy 2012) N —Alejandro's new album isn't out yet, but I bet he'll play some of it when he's at Off Broadway on Tuesday, May 15.
Pere Ubu “Horns Are a Dilemma”
from Song of the Bailing Man (Cooking Vinyl 1982) —David Thomas, the singer and guiding force for Pere Ubu and Rocket From the Tombs, is quite ill right now, being forced to cancel the RFTT tour in Europe. Hope he gets better soon.
City Squirrel “Little World”
from Defeat (Red Pill 2012) N —Former St. Louisian Stephan Bayley ruminates on the curveballs life can throw. Beautifully.
John Grant “I Wanna Go to Marz”
from Queen of Denmark (Bella Union 2010) —This is the guy who wrote the title track of this record which Sinead O'Connor does so well on her new album. He used to be in the Czars, but I've only just now heard him. Midlake backs him up here.
Dirty Dozen Brass Band “Tomorrow”
from Twenty Dozen (Savoy Jazz 2012) N —I've been looking at this new record on the shelves for a few weeks, finally worked in a song. Interesting, sort of a ska vibe on this track. I dig it.
Peter Tosh “Brand New Second Hand”
from Legalize it (Columbia 1976) —I know this song is mean and nasty in the lyrics, but it's such a great hook, and Tosh knows how to sound sweet while he's being spiteful.
Peter Wolf “If You Wanna Be With Somebody”
from Fool's Parade (Mercury 2010) —I don't think I actually heard this record back when it came out - at any rate, as I've always loved Peter Wolf, I was surprised to discover this recently, and it's typically great.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
