This album is full of mellow indie rock, which is my cup of tea. Highly recommended for fans of Oh, Inverted World era Shins. The guest vocals on a handful of songs keep the whole thing sounding fresh from start to finish. Love it.

This is the catchiest thing you will hear this year. Take a Shout Out Louds album, add a tablespoon of the Cure, mix in a dash of New Order, throw in a pinch of awesome, and bake at 450. Let cool, and rock out.

If you've never listened to GBV before, this is not the place to start (that's Bee Thousand). In fact, it is not even the best album in their current rapid fire of releases (that's Class Clown Spots A UFO). All that being said, it is a good listen. Come on, how can you pass up an album with song titles like Xeno Pariah or Sir Garlic Breath??

No one can sing like Joe Pernice. Beautiful songs, melodies, vocals; it's all here. A perfect soundtrack for falling in love....or doing the dishes.
I have no idea why the video is what it is, but the song is well worth a listen.

One of the most underrated bands of all time delivers a classic. If you know them as a one-hit-wonder, or don't know them at all, I beg you to give this a try. If you ever get a chance to see them live, don't miss it.

Tom Waits takes me to another place. So many good stories in his music.
This is my favorite cover, another thing he does really well, always bringing his own interpretion. This one is Beauty and the Beast embodied in music.

Since going on vacation to TN in July, I've been dusting off my bluegrass cd's. We went to the Grand Ole Opry on July 27th and had the opportunity to hear Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers in their debut on the Opry. They were the highlight of the show. If you like bluegrass, check them out.

Clip from that night:

Working-class Irish punks from Boston, long associated with the city's pro sports teams. Now they're everywhere, including TV ads for rum. Their latest set is among their best. Love the way Scruffy Wallace wails on the bagpipes on this one, keeping up with the electric guitars.

Blackmore's Night
Dancer and the Moon


Former Deep Purple and Rainbow guitar shredder Ritchie Blackmore has turned away from his hard rock and metal ways and now plays a melange of folk (new and ancient), New Age, rock (and other influences) with his wife, singer Candice Night. Their current release leans a bit more toward the rock side of things; while Blackmore still plays a variety of acoustic guitars, mandolins, the occasional hurdy-gurdy and what have you, he dusts off his trademark Fender Stratocaster more often here than in the past. Neither of the two songs I'm going to share here has an official video, but I won't let that stop me.

First is a cover of an old Uriah Heep song. The original is sparse and moody, perhaps that band's best song, while this version opens things up and adds a wider range of instrumentation. Things really kick in around the 3:25 mark when Blackmore cranks up the Strat, and this cover can stand proudly beside the original.



The album's final cut is this instrumental tribute to Blackmore's former Deep Purple bandmate, keyboardist Jon Lord, who passed away last year. This is melancholy and very moving, a great tribute indeed. Ritchie Blackmore shows that, despite nearing the age of 70 and having been away from full-on rock music for almost 20 years, he can still wring great sounds from an electric guitar.

Tonight I've been playing Mount Kimbie tunes on You Tube. I'll go with The Guardian's description of their music as

"leading an exploratory breakaway from bass-heavy dubstep towards a lighter, hazier style of electronica rich with drowsy ambience and chopped-up found sounds."

Not usually my kind of thing but I find their stuff quite pleasing. Here's a sample.

I ve been listening to the newest 311 album, Universal Pulse. Due to my older brother I've been listening to this band since I was 6 or so. I didn't buy their latest two albums and I quit listening to them for awhile. But then I heard their new single Sunset in July.

Also I ve been listening to this French metal band Heavenly.

Somewhere Down in Texas by Will Bennett

My son just graduated from Grinnell College with an English degree. He wants to form a rock and roll band. Just this week he released a free EP of 6 original songs as a way of getting his stuff out there. It's been on steady rotation on my iTunes ever since.

Musically, Will is most influenced by the Old 97's and the songwriting of Rhett Miller. (For the uninitiated, the Old 97's are a great alt-country band.) His taste runs all over the map - Britpop, Motown, classic rock, you name it.

Will's songwriting outpaces his singing or his guitar playing at this point. The EP was something he recorded in Columbus with some friends who have a recording studio there.

Here's the link for the free EP:http://willbennett.bandcamp.com/
