Happy Saturday! Those of you in the US can experience time slippin’ slippin’ slippin’ into the future tonight as we lose an hour to the evil that is Daylight Saving Time. Thanks a lot, Benjamin Franklin! Your invention of bifocals and swim fins does not redeem you.
Lots of albums kicking strong out of the gate here in 2018. Might have to lasso a few more tomorrow. Let’s round em up.
Jazz-inflected R&B with echoes of India.Arie and Nina Simone. Utterly captivating.
Tax The Heat – Change Your Position
Hard rock riffage from the UK with hooks aplenty.
Mademoiselle Nineteen – Liverpool
It’s difficult enough keeping track of all the albums in English, and I only have a vague idea of what Mademoiselle Nineteen sings about (love, gardens, chameleons), but the musical mix of mid-60’s British Invasion and Motown erases language barriers.
Mike And The Moonpies – Steak Night At The Prairie Rose
Rockin’ old-school country. Tough and tender from Texas.
Love the video for “Road Crew.” I think understated is the right word…
Yes! I love the slow build in this video. It does a nice job of showing the personaiity of the band without distracting from the song.
