7:00am

The Heavy “Same Ol'”
from The Glorious Dead (Counter Records 2012) N  —A band that lives up to its name - thick slabs of syncopated rock.

7:04am

Dolly Varden “Everything”

7:07am

Roger Daltrey “Giving It All Away”
from Daltrey (Castle 1973) —I had absolutely no idea that Leo Sayer wrote most of the songs for this record. Learn something new.

7:16am

The Kinks “Animal Farm”

7:19am

Karate Bikini “Smuggler's Nightmare”

7:23am

The Blazers “17 Jewels”
from The Seventeen Jewels (Little Dog 2003) —One of the truly great underrated bands in the land - just because they're Mexican-Americans, and one of them is a big guy doesn't make them Los Lobos clones.

7:26am

Bachman-Turner Overdrive “Jamaica”
from Greatest Hits (Mercury 1981) —I don't care what anybody says, these guys had a way with rock grooves.

7:32am

The Youngbloods “Long & Tall”
from Earth Music (Edsel 1967) —I love the guitar and electric piano on this, and if that's Jesse Colin Young singing, he was listening to some early McCartney on the way to the studio that day.

7:36am

Buddy Miller “Don't Wait”
from Universal United House of Prayer MP3/file Album (New West 2004) —Buddy Miller is producing the next Richard Thompson album. That's a lot of guitar talent in one place.

7:41am

John Hiatt “Give It Up”
from Mystic Pinball (New West 2012) N  —I could hear this song making inroads in the country market. Not that I know how that works, but it sounds country to my ears.

7:46am

Penelope Houston “Secret Sign”
from Cut You (Reprise 1996) —Those who only remember her from the punk rock band the Avengers might be surprised at the richly melodic pop records she's made over the years.

7:50am

Steve Staicoff “By the Light of the Moon”
from Tremore in Timore (self 2012) N L —Very talented St. Louis singer/songwriter/player of multiple instruments.

7:55am

Michael Kiwanuka “Home Again” (Interscope 2012) N  —Sweet and beautiful.

8:02am

Kate & Anna McGarrigle “Midnight Flight”
from Love Over and Over (Polydor 1982) —The McGarrigles didn't make very many records, and this one probably got less exposure than most. But, as always, it's a masterpiece of elegance and melodic beauty.

8:08am

Luke Ritchie “Right Then and There”
from The Water's Edge (MQZ Renewables 2011) —A song that left me quivering with joy when I first heard it a couple weeks ago.

from I Can See the Future (Yep Roc 2012) N  —Man, she has some good songs.

from Other Enz: Split Enz & Beyond (Raven 1999) —A collaboration with Phil Manzanera.

8:37am

Rockhouse Ramblers “If You Want Me Too”
from Lies And Damn Lies (self 2010) L —Late lamented St. Louis honky-tonk band (though four out of five still perform as Colonel Ford, so they're not completely gone).

from One Wrong Turn (Alligator Performing 2012) N  —There aren't many better songwriters in the blues world these days.

8:48am

Ebo Taylor “Ayesama”
from Appia Kwa Bridge (Strut 2012) —From Ghana, just outrageously funky!

8:55am

John Lennon “It's So Hard”
from Imagine (Apple 1971) —Lennon's hard blues.

from American Pulverizer, Pt. 1 - EP (self 2012) N L —Another terrific St. Louis band - this town is crawling with talent.

9:05am

The Jesus & Mary Chain “Sometimes Always”
from 21 Singles 1984-1998 (Warner Brothers 2002) —William Reid duets with Hope Sandoval. Sparks fly.

9:07am

The dB's “The Wonder of Love”
from Falling Off the Sky (Bar/None Records 2012) N  —I can't imagine missing the chance to see one of the all-time best bands in pop/rock history tomorrow night at the Duck Room.

9:32am

John Boutte “Sisters”
from Treme: Music from the HBO Original Series Season 2 (Rounder 2012) N  —Boutte is a great singer I'd never have heard were it not for the TV series Treme.

9:36am

Jimmie Lunceford & His Orchestra “Organ Grinders Swing”
from 1936-1937, Vol. 4 (Masters of Jazz 1995) —Not the best known of the big bands, but an awfully cool one.

9:38am

Mary Lou Williams “Play It Momma”
from Zoning (Smithsonian Folkways 1974) —That bass rules on this sparse piano cut. This woman was one of the titans of jazz, very rarely receiving the recognition she deserves.

9:44am

Donald Fagen “Miss Marlene”
from Sunken Condos (Reprise 2012) N  —On the short list of great bowling songs.

9:49am

Mitch Easter “Why Is It So Hard?”

9:53am

Ruby Fray “Mint Ice Cream”
from Pith (K 2012) N  —A strange thing for me to be enchanted by, but here it is. Good song, albeit lo-fi ambience.
