Time zone: central


Bob Mould “Angels Rearrange”
from Silver Age (Merge 2012) —This is a classic Husker/Sugar-styled Mould record.


The Feelies “Original Love”
from Crazy Rhythms (A&M 1980) —Ah, that nervous energy!


Emitt Rhodes “You Should Be Ashamed”
from Listen, Listen: The Best of Emitt Rhodes (Varese 1995) —A true master of melody.


The Sights “Bad Man”
from Left Over Right (HRM 2011) —I guess I just don't understand how I'm made out to be the bad man when I'm just doing what I could. Is it no good?


The Beatles “And Your Bird Can Sing”
from Revolver Album (CAPITOL 1966) —The single greatest record of all time.


Levon Helm “Wide River to Cross”
from Dirt Farmer (Dirt Farmer Music 2007) —Buddy & Julie Miller wrote this gem which is becoming a modern classic - no better version than this one, though.


The Mastersons “I Don't Know”
from Birds Fly South (New West 2012) N  —That guitar lick ain't fancy, but it's insistent.


Peter Wolf “I Don't Wanna Know”
from Midnight Souvenirs (Verve 2010) —Allmusic says this is a betrayal song to dance to. I'll buy that.


Webb Wilder “If You're Looking For a Fool”
from Born To Be Wilder (blind pig www.rounder.com 2008) —One of the most reliably enjoyable roots rockers of the past 25 years.


Aaron Griffin and Mojo Rising “Phone Booth”
from Mojo Rising (self-released 2012) N L —This 17-year-old St. Louis kid has no business playing guitar and singing this Robert Cray song with this much fire and imagination. Sure, his dad's been a fixture on the blues scene for years, but this is surprisingly great stuff.


The Linemen “Dust and Despair”
from Reconsider (self 2009) L —It was cool to see these guys reunite for the KDHX celebration a few weeks back.


Court Yard Hounds “April's Love”
from Court Yard Hounds CD Album (Columbia 2010) —Just beautiful.


The Everly Brothers “Empty Boxes”
from Heartaches & Harmonies (Rhino 1994) —First sisters, then brothers. Sometimes this show just programs itself.


Luke Ritchie “Off Your Guard”
from The Water's Edge (MQZ Renewables 2011) —I owe Steve Carosello for introducing me to this tremendously talented singer/songwriter.


Pet Shop Boys “Breathing Space”
from Elysium (Astralwerks 2013) N  —You can just float on the melody and the bed of gentle synth sounds.


Benny Andersson Band “Story of a Heart” (Decca 2009) —This brilliant album snuck out three years ago, and I only just heard it about it a few weeks back. It's got a lot of different facets, including this song, which is quite possibly as great as anything he ever did in ABBA.


Eleni Mandell “Two Faces”
from Artificial Fire (Zedtone 2009) —Moody and intoxicating.


John Lennon “Remember”
from Gimme Some Truth (CAPITOL 2010) —Remember when you were young how the hero was never hung.


The dB's “The Adventures of Albatross and Doggerel”
from Falling Off the Sky (Bar/None Records www.bar-none.com 2012) N  —One week from tomorrow at the Duck Room. You'll be very sorry if you miss this show.


City Squirrel “Lori Blue”
from Defeat (Red Pill 2012) —Beautiful song about a lovely person who left us way too soon.


Wanda Jackson “California Stars”
from Unfinished Business (SUGAR HILL www.sugarhillrecords.com 2010) N  —I played this last week, but it's such a sweet version, I thought I'd share it with those of you who don't wake up earlier.


Brothers Lazaroff “She Loves to Dance”
from Science Won (self-released 2012) N L —Subconscious does it again - there's a line in here, "like watching stars collide," which undoubtedly made me play this after the previous song.


Dan Bern “Haarlem”
from Drifter (self 2012) N  —One of our finest songwriters continues to toil in obscurity, but man, listen to this song.


Dion “Statesboro Blues”
from Bronx in Blue (Razor & Tie www.razorandtie.com 2006) —A highly personal take on a song that's survived for decades.


Robert Johnson “Stop Breakin' Down Blues”
from The Complete Collection (Columbia 1990) —It'll make you lose your mind.


Nathan James “Make It On Your Own”
from What You Make of It (Delta Groove 2012) N  —One of the coolest blues records I heard this year.


Elmore James “Dark and Dreary”
from The Best Of Elmore James: The Early Years (Ace 1995) —I love the Elmore James cuts with the saxophones.


Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra “Sare Kon Kon”
from Antibalas (Daptone 2012) N  —Taking the Afrobeat style to new approaches.


Charles Mingus “Fifty-First Street Blues”
from East Coasting (Shout Factory www.shoutfactory.com 1957) —So many things to love here - the swing, the swagger, the tune, the solos.


Brian Setzer “Drive Like Lightning (Crash Like Thunder) (Live)”
from Rockabilly Riot! Live From the Planet (SURFDOG 2012) N  —One of the world's best guitar players, and a heck of a vocalist. Man, this cut burns.


The Mar-Kets “Surfer's Stomp”
from Cowabunga! The Surf Box (Rhino 1996) —I'm sure it wasn't easy to be a teen back in the early 60s, but stuff like this makes it sound as though it was.


Lesley Gore “Judy's Turn to Cry (Italian)”
from Hits & Rarities 1964-1969 (Teensville 2011) —Pay close attention, and you can learn to speak Italian through pop song.


The Sugarman 3 “Dirty Water”
from What the World Needs Now (Daptone 2012) N  —Bet you never realized you needed a cool instrumental take on the Standells.


from Bustin' Out: The Very Best of Rick James (Motown 1994) —For a few years there, Rick James just churned out these effortlessly funky delights.


Howard Tate “I'm Your Servant”
from Get It While You Can - The Complete Legendary Verve Sessions (Hip-O Select/Verve 1967) —What a singer!


True Gospel Wymics “Oh Yes That's Right”
from Oxford American Arkansas Masters (Oxford American 2009) —What's a Wymic? Who knows, but this is a strong, bluesy gospel cut.


Bruce Springsteen “Swallowed Up (In the Belly of the Whale)”
from Wrecking Ball (Columbia 2012) —I actually can't think of anything to say about this one. I just like it.


Tom Petty “Love Is a Long Road”
from Full Moon Fever (MCA 1989) —I hadn't heard this in a long time - what a great song.


Darden Smith “Over My Beating Heart”
from Marathon (Darden Music 2010) —A lot of talented folks put their albums out themselves now that bigger labels don't remember them.
