Time zone: central
Joe Louis Walker “Hellfire” (Alligator 2012) N —Among the most talented contemporary blues performers - this record is a scorcher.
The Bo-Keys “Weak Spot”
from Got To Get Back! (Electraphonic 2011) —That's the great William Bell singing this soul gem from last year. Wish I could have seen these guys in town the other night.
Dave Alvin “Rio Grande”
from Ashgrove (Yep Roc 2004) —I love when itunes shuffle reminds me of something I haven't heard in several years.
Chuck Prophet “The Left Hand and the Right Hand”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) N —He put on an excellent show at Off Broadway last night - I couldn't stay for all of it, but I saw nearly an hour of excellent rock.
Bhi Bhiman “Take What I'm Given”
from Bhiman (Boocoo Music 2012) N —I would also have liked to catch this ex-St. Louisian in his triumphant return to town the other night. I'm really liking everything I've heard on his debut album.
The Change Music Variety Show “Simple - Now!”
from Now! (Tony Patti 2012) N L —Fabulous and catchy from a much-longer song cycle by a very talented St. Louisian who hasn't made his music public in a long time.
City Squirrel “Lockerbie”
from Defeat (Red Pill 2012) N —Former St. Louisian Stephan Bayley has a new album coming out with a different batch of City Squirrel associates - this is the first single, and it's a corker.
Finn's Motel “Early Spring” (Unknown unk) N L —St. Louis band has released this song in download form - presumably an album will follow soon.
Bruce Springsteen “Swallowed Up (In the Belly of the Whale)”
from Wrecking Ball (Columbia 2012) N —One of the two bonus cuts on the deluxe edition of the album, and a chilling cut indeed.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
