Shoes “Nobody to Blame”
from Ignition (Black Vinyl 2012) N —There's that crunchy sound with the purty melody these guys can do at their best.
Redd Kross “Dracula's Daughter”
from Researching the Blues (Merge 2012) N —The songs on this record sneak up on you - after awhile, all my initial problems with this album have disappeared.
Diana Krall “Prairie Lullaby”
from Glad Rag Doll (Verve 2012) N —T Bone Burnett producing, Marc Ribot on guitar, Diana Krall singing - more, please.
Talking Heads “Animals”
from Fear of Music (sire 1979) —This album confused the heck out of me when it was new, though I pretty much loved it right away. Now, I'm wondering if it's my fave Talking Heads.
Pugwash “I Want You Back In My Life (For Mam)”
from Jollity ((190) (300) 2007) —I know very little about this guy, but the music is melodically rich and exquisite.
Joey Ramone “Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)”
from Ya Know (BMG 2012) N —It's not better than the original with the Ramones, but I find this slowed-down version pretty effective.
Rufus Thomas “So Hard To Get Along With”
from Do The Funky Chicken (stax 1970) —Rufus never struck me as a guy who was hard to get along with. But I ain't gonna argue with the man.
