Dexy's Midnight Runners “Liars A to E”
from Too-Rye-Ay (Unknown 1982) —Every once in a great while, I need to remember that I loved this whole album, not just the giant mega-hit that has been played 40 billion times in the last 30 years.
Warren Zevon “MacGillycuddy's Reeks”
from My Ride's Here (Artemis 2002) —She was a systems analyst for a dot com company / She said you think because we kissed I'll be yours eternally. Ah, I miss Warren Zevon.
The Anniversary “Never Die Young”
from Your Majesty (Vagrant 2002) —Back at a time when I didn't think I'd ever like a new rock band again, these guys came into my life and knocked me out.
Husker Du “Divide and Conquer”
from Flip Your Wig (SST 1985) —Oh, to be 26 years old again and in love with music like this! It was as though the whole world was ours to grab.
Melody Den “Lovely Lie”
from Storylines (Perdition 2013) N L —The more I hear from this record, the more impressed I am - St. Louis's Marc Chechik has hit a home run with this one.
Half Knots “Repose”
from Proof (self 2013) N L —A sweet and languid instrumental from this very fine St. Louis band.
Joan Armatrading “Always On My Mind”
from Starlight (429 2012) N —There hasn't been much fanfare, but Armatrading is in a major career renaissance these past few years.
Boreal Hills “Kids”
from Single (self 2013) N L —New St. Louis band playing tonight at Mushmaus with Divino Nino and La Kaza.
13th Amendment “The Stretch”
from Eccentric Soul: Omnibus (numero 2012) N —Very cool, very rare funk - I don't understand the need to have a box of 45 45's, but I'm glad to hear this song (and other gems from it).
The Melodians “I'll Get Along Without You”
from Swing and Dine (Heartbeat 1992) —I'm pretty sure this was an influence on "Pato & Roger A Go Talk" by the English Beat. At any rate, it's delightful.
Bruno Mars “If I Knew”
from Unorthodox Jukebox (Atlantic 2012) N —This guy can do just about anything - including a song that wouldn't have sounded out of place on a Sam Cooke single.
The Rolling Stones “Play With Fire”
from Out of Our Heads (London 1965) —It occurred to me I haven't heard this song in ages - before the Stones hit their rock'n'roll stride, they had this ability to come up with all sorts of interesting different styles.
Raul Malo “For You”
from You're Only Lonely (Sanctuary 2006) —I really really want to hear the new Mavericks album, but I haven't yet, so here's a great solo number from Raul.
