Tegan and Sara “Love They Say”
from Heartthrob (Warner Brothers 2013) N —I was caught completely by surprise when these long-time indie guitar strummers turned into synth popmeisters. This album is pure pleasure.
Free Energy “Hey Tonight”
from Love Sign (Free Energy 2013) N —I'm continuing to dig this new record - always nice to hear a young band with some melodic gifts and a rock'n'roll drive.
The Animals “Gonna Send You Back to Walker”
from The Singles Plus (EMI 1994) —Perfect combination of musicians - just love the way the guitar, bass, and keyboards work here.
The Kinks “Sitting In My Hotel”
from Everybody's In Show-Biz (Velvel 1972) —The Kinks will undoubtedly get an uptick in airplay as we get ready for the big Kinks tribute benefit for KDHX Mar. 30 at Off Broadway.
Ray Davies “The Voodoo Walk”
from Working Man's Cafe (V2 2007) —I wonder if Ray Davies solo material will be included in the Kinks tribute. Of course, there are a couple hundred great songs to consider.
Tim Lee 3 “Devil's Rope” (Cool Dog Sound 2013) N —Screw the Black Keys! This is what they've been trying to achieve! Love this cut!
Melody Den “Storylines” (Perdition 2013) N L —My dream is to see a Tim Lee 3 / Melody Den show this year.
Simone “To Voltando”
from The EMI Years (EMI 1997) —Great Brazilian music - I used to actually know her place in the Brazilian pantheon, but my world music knowledge continues to slip away.
Brandy Johnson “Wooden Wheels”
from Worried Well (self 2003) —St. Louis singer/songwriter with lots of talent who seems to have dropped out of the game.
Love “My Little Red Book”
from Love (Elektra 1966) —You gotta love a good pop/rock number.
Mott the Hoople “Ballad of Mott the Hoople”
from Mott (Columbia 1973) —All bands should write a song about themselves at some point or another. But none will be better than this at it.
Darden Smith “Bull By the Horns”
from Marathon (Darden Music 2010) —One of the most underrated songwriters out there - the guy has never disappointed me in the 25 or more years since I discovered him when he opened for Rosanne Cash at Mississippi Nights.
