Buckley, Beady Eye and B-sides, oh my!

 

Annnd, here we are – ‘nother Sunday, ‘nother Scoop!

Hope you enjoyed my selections…it would be nice to think I haven’t lost my touch. ;) If you didn’t get a chance to play along with the Friday Fiver this week, stop RIGHT NOW and go here before you see all the spoilers below!

 

Track one: Shake, Shiver and Moan by 20-22′s

English band, broke up in 2005, rebanded in 2008 to finally release the album of the same name as this track in 2010.  While I like the song well enough, they get points off for the name.   “20-22′s” is a classification for the size of shrimp, not a a good name for a band.  WTF, guys?

Track two: Be Your Husband by Jeff Buckley

HA!  gotcha!  This track is from the live double album “Live from Sin-`e“, recorded in New York in 1993.  This song has been covered by the likes of Antony and the Johnsons and Damien Rice in one or another lyrical iteration, but the original written by Andy Stroud was made famous by Nina Simone as “Be My Husband”.  No matter – I love this song any way I can get it.  (Same goes for Jeff Buckley.)

Track three: Invisible by Winter Gloves

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Yep, these guys got in strictly in the strength of their band name, which is awesome.  (Of course, they’re from Quebec, so I imagine they know a little something about winter gloves…)  They lost me at the fourth note, but I threw it in for folks whose ears don’t immediately bleed when they hear synth.  ;)

Track four: Bring the Light by Beady Eye

In the interest of “follow up”, I thought I’d throw this in for kicks. Considering that I posted the new single from Noel Gallagher earlier in the week, I queued up the first post Oasis single from his brother Liam’s new band for comparison.

For the record, I’m firmly planted on the side of “Team Noel”.

Track five: I Don’t Wanna Be a Soldier Mama (I Don’t Wanna Die) – Robert Randolph and the Family Band

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Sneaky, sneaky Ri!  This is a cover, done by Robert Randolph and the Family Band, of the original song from John Lennon.

Two things:  First, I love RR, and don’t think he gets nearly enough credit for the wonderfully versatile and talented musician he is.  Second, call it sacrelidge, but I like his version better than the original.  I think the original carried too much affectation and took away from the simple yet powerful lyrics.  (I think that about alot of Lennon’s later stuff, though.) RR’s version hits home more for me.

(Here – you decide.)
