Time zone: central


Bombino “Iyat Idounia Ayasahen (Another Life)”
from Agadez (Cumbancha 2011) —This guitar player from Niger is one of the most exciting musicians to appear in recent years. Hypnotic, propulsive, and thrilling.


Television “Marquee Moon” (Elektra 1977) —Speaking of thrills - I've never heard this song without being absolutely grateful to be in the presence of something this perfect.


Tommy Keene “Guiding Light”
from Excitement At Your Feet (Second Motion 2013) N  —I absolutely love this new record from Tommy Keene, all covers of some of his favorite songs, and boy, does he have great taste.


Neko Case “Night Still Comes”
from The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You (Anti- 2013) N  —Here's another new record I'm falling in love with. So far beyond the very good material she's given us before.


Amanda Shires “The Garden Song”
from Down Fell the Doves (Lightning Rod 2013) N  —I was just struck by the musical similarities between Amanda Shires and another fiddler who works outside genre constrictions, Andrew Bird.


Kim Richey “Breakaway Speed”
from Thorn In My Heart (Yep Roc 2012) N  —If you can get Jason Isbell to sing a duet with you, and then add Trisha Yearwood on harmony vocals, you're doing all right.


Denny Brown “Got the Whole Night”
from The San Francisco / Austin / Hollywood Sessions (Unknown 2013) N  —I still haven't figured out who this Denny Brown guy is, but his record is really very good. And David Grissom on guitar - he gets me every time!


The Delgados “American Trilogy”
from The Great Eastern (Beggars Banquet 2000) —They only existed for a short while, but they were magnificent.


They Might Be Giants “Great”
from Nanobots (Idlewild unk 2013) N  —Sometimes it only takes 53 seconds to get the job done.


Richard Barone “Law of the Jungle”
from Clouds Over Eden (Mesa 1993) —After refalling in love with Richard Barone's Cool Blue Halo material, I revisited this record for the first time in ages, and yep, it holds up, too.


JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound “Howl” (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2013) N  —I think JC is learning more and more how to control his voice - his singing here is really good.


The Soul of John Black “East LA Lady”
from A Sunshine State of Mind (Yellow Dog 2013) N  —I like the way the groove drives forward while the vocal lays back.


Tas Cru “Kinda' Mess”
from Jus' Desserts (Crustee Tees 2013) N  —Some pretty decent blues from the man with the weird name.


Little Willie John “My Nerves”
from Fever: The Best of Little Willie John (Rhino 1993) —Now here's a great singer!


Marc Broussard featuring Sam Bush “Rising Sun”
from Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino (EMI 2007) —I don't know the Fats Domino original, but I enjoy this mellow cover.


Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition “Tennesse Walker Mare”
from White Buffalo (Fat Possum 2013) —I like a good song about a horse.


Kevin Gordon “Gloryland” (Crowville Collective 2010) —One of my fave records from last year.


Elvis Costello “That's Me”
from Ghost Brothers of Darkland County Comp (Hear Music 2013) N  —I had to hear almost the whole thing before I figured out the key to understanding the story, and then on second listen, it makes sense.


Rod Stewart “Mama You Been On My Mind”
from Never A Dull Moment (Mercury 1972) —From the end of the times when he could do no wrong.


Court Yard Hounds “Gets You Down”
from Amelita (Columbia 2013) N  —I heard nothing but raves about their Loufest performance.


The Carper Family “Montana Cowboy”
from Back When (self 2012) —Yee-haw!


Lil Armstrong “Brown Gal”
from Talk to Me Daddy (Flyright 2000) —Obscure but delightful.


Zoot Sims “The Man I Love”
from Zoot (Universal 1956) —Zoot had such a sweet tenor sound.


The Everly Brothers “It's All Over”
from Heartaches & Harmonies (Rhino 1994) —Those voices - and a harpsichord!


The Beatles “Here Comes the Sun”
from Abbey Road CD Album (Apple 1969) —Every once in a while, I like to just remember how genuinely wonderful this song is.


The Rascals “Silly Girl”
from Anthology 1965-1972 (Rhino 1992) —Yeah, they could rock, but they could also do this sort of 60s sopisto-pop.


The Searchers “When I Get Home”
from Greatest Hits (Rhino 1985) —Ring them guitar chords, boys.


Vampire Weekend “Diane Young”
from Modern Vampires of the City (XL Recordings 2013) N  —This song is goofy, it's brilliant, it's jet propulsive, it's ridiculous. I love it.


Big Dipper “Joke Outfit”
from Crashes On the Platinum Planet (Almost Ready 2012) —So good to have these guys back in the game.


Soup Dragons “Crotch Deep Trash”
from LoveGod (Polydor 1990) —This band sounds better now than I think I realized they were at the time.


Waterloo “Some Kind of Holiday”
from Out of the Woods (Undertow 2006) L —A typically beautiful song from Mark Ray and company.


Wondermints “So Nice”
from Mind If We Make Love To You (Smile www.stewsongs.com/ 2002) —Not the Beach Boys, but an incredible enough simulation that they got hired to back up Brian Wilson.


Willie Nile “God Laughs”
from American Ride (River House www.willienile.com 2013) N  —A candidate for best song of the year - God drinks, God smokes, God plans to quit before he croaks.


Chuck Prophet “The Left Hand and the Right Hand”
from Live at KDHX - Vol. 11 (KDHX 2013) N  —This great live version can be yours if you become a member of KDHX during the drive Oct. 3 - 12.


The Dead Reckoners “Cryin' For Nothin'”
from A Night Of Reckoning (Dead Reckoning 1997) —Kevin Welch wrote and sang this one.


Ray Wylie Hubbard “Moss and Flowers”
from The Grifter's Hymnal (Bordello www.raywylie.com 2012) —One of those songs where the guitar plays the exact melody the singer sings.


Sonny Landreth “Letting Go”
from Elemental Journey (Proper 2012) —Exquisite instrumental.


Southern Culture on The Skids “Strangest Voices”
from Plastic Seat Sweat (Geffen 1997) —Let's get ready to rumble!


Slaid Cleaves “Rust Belt Fields”
from Still Fighting the War (Music Road Records 2013) N  —Ending on a sad tale about hard times.
