Man, was I “out there” when I picked the last Fiver or what? Talk about all over the spectrum! Ah, well – say what you will about the carnival ride of genres – you can’t say it was boring…
Tiffani got it – the unmistakable Guy Clark with the brand new sequel to his 2007 “Sis Draper”. Nice to finally find out what happened to Ol’ Sis…shame poison was involved.
This was from his newly (July 23, 2013) released CD “My Favorite Picture of You”. I’ve had it on repeat all week – true fans of Guy’s will not be disappointed. The lyrics are stirring, the melodies are rich, and despite the sorrow of losing his wife last year and the ravages of age and a life full-lived, the master songwriter is still at it. Expect a full review at Music Savvy Mom soon.
This is a 1993 offering from “iconic” Australian band Hoodoo Gurus…and frankly, I’m not sure how it found it’s way into my music. (Not that I didn’t LIKE the Hoodoo Gurus – but I listened to them in the mid ’80′s – high school and college.) I grant you the misogynistic lyric, although I must admit I never noticed it before. Apparently I’m not as evolved as I should be…and, in truth, I know there are plenty of women – and men for that matter – who would gladly offer the service and love a tip for it. I suppose maybe he was talking to one of them…?
Anyway – I like the drums.
This is a new (July 2, 2013) release from Mr. Hansen. Moody & bluesy in a “George Jetson on acid” kind of way, eh? I’d agree that it’s a bit long, but I surprised myself by liking it. But then, I generally like Beck’s stuff, but forget I like it until I hear something of his. I guess you could say I have several “one track stands” with Beck, but never commit to an entire album relationship.
I’m such a hussy.
No love for the girls, eh? I’ll be honest – I clicked on this one by mistake. I like it, but meant to go with Galileo, although in retrospect Shame On You might have been a better choice all around.
Regardless, their harmonies always get me. When the Indigo Girls come up, you’ll find me heartily and happily joining in the chorus at the top of my lungs.
Released on their Like Clockwork CD June 4, 2013, Josh Homme and Co. seem a bit more polished here, no? Actually a little too polished for my taste. I guess it’s good for mindless listening when you don’t care about the cliched lyrics, but I prefer them raw and edgier, m’self.
That said, I still wouldn’t kick Homme out of bed for eating Animal Crackers, if you know what I mean.
