The Coal Porters “Gospel Shore”
from Find The One (Prima 2012) N —Sid Griffin takes up the gospel form - and I didn't even realize the sublminal connection between this and the previous song, both of which have autoharps.
The Dead Reckoners “You Tell Me”
from Night of Reckoning (Avid 1997) —All the artists on the Dead Reckoning label got together to make this fine album sampling their talents (this one features Mike Henderson) and then the label disappeared.
Waylon Jennings “Will the Wolf Survive?” (MCA 1985) —Waylon Jennings wasted no time in picking up on Los Lobos.
Antibalas “Dirty Money”
from Antibalas (Daptone 2012) N —You may be able to sit down, but I bet at least some part of you is moving to this hot hot groove.
Allison Moorer “Dying Breed”
from Show (Universal unk 2003) —I still remember discovering this record by catching a televised showing of the DVD back when it was new - I hadn't heard Moorer before, but she instantly became one of my favorite singers in the world.
Joan Armatrading “Your Letter”
from Love and Affection: Classics 1978-1983 (A&M 2003) —See kids, back in the day, if people were far apart, they would often send each other items in the mail as communication. I used to get a thrill every time I got an envelope from somebody in another town.
Rufus Wainwright “Respectable Dive”
from Out of the Game (Decca 2012) N —Slowly but surely, I'm being seduced by this magnificent new record. Rufus Wainwright remains my fave songwriter under 45.
Carole King “Yours Until Tomorrow”
from The Legendary Demos (Hear Music 2012) N —This was the revelation on this album to me, because I've never heard Gene Pitney's version (or any other), and this song is astounding.
Elvis Costello “Sunday's Best”
from Armed Forces (Rhino 1979) —I had to order this single through the mail (see the comment a few songs ago about the olden days). It is essential Costello.
Karate Bikini “Liar's Parade”
from Sauce of the Apple Horse (self 2012) N L —They'll be playing outdoors next Thursday, Aug. 30 in Grand Center across from the Fox. I saw them last week, and this band is on fire live.
from Four (The Major Label 2010) —This is pop music generated specifically for my DNA, I think.
Radiohead “Fake Plastic Trees”
from The Bends (CAPITOL 1995) —Still one of the most beautiful songs of the last 20 years.
Robbie Fulks “Bluebirds Are Singing For Me”
from Revenge! (Yep Roc 2007) —This song makes me happy, even though I'd never want to live in the Blue Ridge mountains myself.
