Time zone: central


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.


Garland Jeffreys “Rock and Roll Music”
from The King of In Between (Luna Park 2011) —There's nothing like rock and roll music, is there?


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 Blues Magoos “She's Coming Home”
from Kaleidoscopic Compendium: The Best of the Blues Magoos (Mercury 1992) —One of the best songs about infidelity I know - that sexy grinding rhythm lets us know how the singer wants them both.


The Kinks “Sitting In My Hotel”
from Everybody's In Show-Biz (Legacy Recordings 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.


David Olney “Postcard From Mexico”
from One Tough Town (Red Parlor 2007) —It's always nice to be reminded just how great this guy is.


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.


Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition “Run Devil Run”
from White Buffalo (Fat Possum 2013) N  —Nice and spooky and swampy.


The Incurables “Famous Last Words”
from The Fine Art Of Distilling (The Incurables 2012) N  —Ah, Jimmy Griffin! Is there anything this guy can't do? What a killer pop song!


Neil Young “Little Wing”
from Hearts and Doves (Reprise 1980) —Sweet little song from Neil.


Danny Barnes “Overdue”
from Pizza Box (ATO www.atorecords.com 2009) —Former Bad Livers front-man has done alright as a solo artist.


Punch Brothers “Soon Or Never”
from Who's Feeling Young Now? (Nonesuch 2012) —One terrific song from one of the world's most creative contemporary groups.


John Hiatt “I Know How to Lose You”
from Mystic Pinball (New West 2012) N  —A sad tale, a beautiful tune.


Jesse Colter “You Can Pick 'Em”
from Out of the Ashes (Shout! Factory 2006) —It's nearly 7 years since this delightful album appeared - does she have another one in her? I'd love to hear more.


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.


The Slide Brothers “Don't Keep Me Wonderin'”
from Robert Randolph Presents: The Slide Brothers (Concord 2013) N  —If one sacredl steel player is good, four must be spectacular. This Allman Brothers cover sure is.


Cash Box Kings “Black Toppin'” (blind pig www.rounder.com 2013) N  —Killer Chicago blues stylin' here.


Aretha Franklin “I Need a Strong Man (The To-To Song)”
from Rare & Unreleased Recordings from the Golden Reign of the Queen of Soul (Rhino 2007) —Aretha could do no wrong back in those days - listen to her soar on this cut.


Petula Clark “Happy Heart”
from The Ultimate Petula Clark (BMG Heritage 2003) —This song keeps reminding me of something else, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is.


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.


Miles Davis “Bitches Brew”
from Live in Europe 1969: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 2 (Columbia 2013) N  —Stunning live version!


Graham Central Station “My Radio Sure Sounds Good To Me”
from The Jam: Anthology (Rhino 2001) —Should be the theme song of this station, right?


Little Esther “Mainliner”
from I Paid My Dues (Proper 2006) —Let me be your sidetrack baby til your mainline comes along.


Ted Taylor “You Must Have Been Meant For Me”
from Greatest Hits (Collectables 1996) —Man, I love this guy and his falsetto.


Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell “Back When We Were Beautiful”
from Old Yellow Moon (Nonesuch 2013) N  —This song, written by Matraca Berg, just may be the most devastatingly gut-wrenching thing I've heard in ages.


Richard Thompson “Simple Again”
from Live at the BBC (Universal 2011) —Speaking of gut-wrenching.


Richard Thompson “Straight and Narrow”
from Electric (New West 2013) N  —Figured we needed Richard to rock out a bit after those two songs back to back.


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.


One Direction “Tell Me a Lie”

Love “My Little Red Book”
from Love (Elektra 1966) —You gotta love a good pop/rock number.


Linton Kwesi Johnson “Inglan Is a Bitch”
from Independant Intravenshan: The Island Anthology (Island 1998) —The combination of LKJ and Dennis Bovell was unbeatable.


Dengue Fever “Tap Water”

Punishment of Luxury “Puppet Life”
from 1-2-3-4 Punk and New Wave 1976-1979 (Unknown 1999) —One of the stranger records from that burst of creative expression when all things seemed possible.


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.


Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison “Waterfall”
from Cheater's Game (Premium/Thirty Tigers 2013) N  —I just love her voice - glad to have something new from her, and the love between them comes out in their harmonies.


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.


Carrie Rodriguez “I Cry For Love”
from Give Me All You Got (Ninth Street Opus 2013) N  —Cool version of her mentor Chip Taylor's song.
