I don’t know when The Grays’ “Ro Sham Bo” showed up on Spotify (and RDio, and iTunes for that matter), but it did and you should snap it up because it is perfect.
PERFECT ALBUM. So damn good. Twenty years old, my goodness.
Jon Brion, Jason Falkner… produced and mixed by Jack Joseph Puig… gah!
Ryan Adams tonight in Milwaukee… and he (and his band) were a fucking revelation. No joke. I was blown away.
You haven’t heard live music this epic until you’ve heard his song I See Monsters done with this tour’s arrangement. I leapt out of my seat so fast as it ended, I couldn’t help but stand and cheer. Just amazing. Breathtaking.
I love this. Daniel Lanois, my very favorite kind of geek. Watch through to the ending… adorbs.
New music coming from this titan on October 28th.
A master improvising on The Master… Herbie Hancock is asked to play a piece on the Rhodes that symbolizes Miles Davis. My goodness.
Berlin : “Take My Breath Away”
Celine Dion : “My Heart Will Go On”
Whitney Houston : fucking “I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU”
I don’t give a shit about your indie snobbery, if you can’t admit that the key change in “I Will Always Love You” isn’t effective as SHIT, your musical opinion is rendered NULL. AND. VOID.
Mary J Blige - Therapy
New stuff from Mary J, and some great cover art with some old school API console faders.
Holy fucking shit.
This band is a god damn revelation.
North Carolina, you have raised up and taken your shirt off and spun it around like a helicopter.
Um, I’d like to throw Wisconsin in there, too. But yes.
Field Report - Home (Leave the Lights On)
I am completely in love with Field Report’s sophomore album (due out Oct. 7 on Partisan Records). This isn’t even my favorite song on the record.
More beautiful music from Wisconsin.
