"Summertime - The Roughest Time" by Jenny Wilson
from Love and Youth
welcome me back homechime.
jenny wilson is a swedish lady and she just released an album called "love and youth". if any of you got into "the knife"- she was the rad guest singer on "you take my breath away"- i feel inspire by her. she recorded her entire record herself. the instruments, producing, engineering.... this is a jam off of the record. there are mellow trippy folk jams and then some straight prince style shit. kate bush vocals on a sugar high. the swedes come from another planet
look into the crystal ball
"one evening/gatekeeper/inside and out" by Feist
from Let it Die
haven't posted in days. been playing this the last couple of days...she has a rad voice..
one track will be super folky bjorky folky 30's thing and then the next track will be straight disco with some serious uplifting choruses. the whole album is worth listening to. here are 2 example of one of the disco jams.
"inside and out" and "evening"- and one folky jam "gatekeeper"- she sings on the new kings of convenience and lived/played/toured with peaches and gonzales. she had a band in high school that opened up for the ramones. she's rad.
"if you want to sing out SING OUT" by cat stevens
from soundtrack to "harold and maude"
rad singalong style song. harold and maude was playing at the parkway in oakland a coupla weeks ago and it ruled. then, last saturday at the love party for 2003, sam keener busted this out. today is hamburger chimneys b-day. i guess protein or animal style would both be appropo yo.
"it's coming" by sam keener
dude. so it's like 1:10 in the am. a show tonite that was all high school all ages style warehouse. but sam keener kicked out the sweet sauce jams with the nat russell -about the land and the petals and the love. but this one is definitely a new favorite about love coming his way.
"green is the color" by pink floyd
from Soundtrack to the film More
been so diggin the floyd lately. it's these kind of jams that really get me- makes me want to climb into a cloud and take it's shape. also stuff of of meddle and obscured by clouds (wots uh the deal)- his voice is all blendy and soft. plus saw him in this rad KQED video from the early 70's and gilmore is rockin' the tight long sleeve purple t-shirt which makes me have girly thoughts.
"Every Night" by Paul
ok so when is paul not a part of my soundtrack? but shit fools, it's TOO good. listening to this driving around the mountains and just feeling the song go right through me like an arrow. definitely think this is my favorite paul album. you?
"yesterday" by the beatles
from anthology stuff
listening to the beatles in my car is like combining sweet with savory. it always rules. i feel like every 5 years i redicover how important they are to remind me of my youth and family car trips through europe with all 5 brothers and sisters. i remember my brother taught me and my sister to sing "yesterday" and he'd get super mad when we sang it wrong-he would shake his fist saying "it goes up right there-you know-on 'all my troubles seem so far away' get it right!!" the way paul sings it is so casual. i love paul. i love this song- it BRINGS ME BACK TO ONE.
"you turn me on i'm a radio" by joni mitchell
from for the roses
i really like the background vocals on this one. they sound like a train-an endless force of magic. i'm into this song. it took me a while to discover her-afraid of the relevant weight that was put on her status by silly high school girls at santa barbara high school -with names like "jenner" and "toby" - but we all come around. joni time
