"stop and let go" by pilot
it's been a while. hey dudes! woke up with this one in my head, and i'm on the prowl for some new jams, so of course, this is the place to be.
"you and i, part 2" by fleetwood mac
from tango in the night
this record has been on repeat in my zone for a week solid. if this song doesn't pull me out of my bad luck streak, nothing will. feeling too chicken to upload this track, but listen to it once via lala
"how long do i have to wait for you?" by sharon jones and the dap-kings
this sounds to me like it's so much older than it is. the record came out in '05!
"right or wrong" by stealers wheel
from right or wrong
i've been trying to learn a bit more about stealers wheel lately. i guess it's no surprise that i hear a lot of unicorn in their stuff since they were jamming during the same time frame, on the same continent. to my knowledge the two weren't hanging, but maybe someone here could school me. this number has some nice changes, a good melody and a groove that i can really get with.
"first words, north east rising sun ..." by trans am
from sex change
first listen here and i can't believe how rad this sounds. i didn't even realize i should be expecting a new album from these guys. it's cool to read how the 3 members have been doing their own thing for a few years. i sure picked the right moment for the chim drop in. thanks jude, whoever you are.
"strobelight honey" by black sheep
from a wolf in sheep's clothing
heard this on cassette via my pal's shitty car speakers the other day - the only/best way to listen to hip hop like this. he pointed out black sheep's talk of the knish later in the record. so east coast. entertaining for us californians.
"old days" by chicago
from chicago viii
in small doses, like maybe one song at a time, i can really get with this band. tried to listen to a whole album once and it didn't really pan out. this song is so catchy though. high school reunion song for the class of '75. why not start the song with a drum solo like that? epic! horn swells, stadium guitar riffs. love the breath at the bridge, too.
"amsterdam" by peter, bjorn and john
from writer's block
checking in for the first time in a while, mainly because i wanted to see what's up with POP this weekend. isn't a fellow chimney guest djing? anyway, i always feel like a putz if i check in without posting at least something. i saw that clunk posted 'young folks' by this same band. that's definitely the ripper on that record, but i figured i'd post another track from it, since it's all pretty good. this one reminds me a bit of magnetic fields, who isn't my favorite actually, but this track is still cool. these guys are huge enough to have appeared on conan the other night. apparently the singer had a gift - a shirt that said "Peter, Bjorn, John and Conan."
"all" by ass
trying to get plenty done today and this record helps me focus. it's a little jim o'rourkey, maybe a little faheyey, and all around mellow and beautiful. i had the pleasure of hanging/crashing with this guy in stockholm a few months back. he is a gem and so is his music. gotta thank him for all those late night pajama concerts and for burning his brand new album for me. this one is called why astrid smiles.
"give me love" by george harrison
from living in the material world
while many chimneys and chimney affiliates were performing live is SF last night, i was quietly enjoying a show by one of my all time favorites, ron sexsmith. such the adult contemporary vibe at that show, but whatever. i love his songs. he played this george cover and said it was his favorite song as a tyke. makes sense.
