"Fuzz's Fourth Dream" by Fuzz
from This Time I Got a Reason 7"
Sounds perfectly trashed. Excited to see what these guys bring to the Rickshaw Stop tonight. Acknowledging that I'm only an occasional contributor, let this also be my gentle plug for re-embracing thankscity delivery at DC. Even if there were no other reason, someone should be honoring this beautiful design:
"Song For Zula" by Phosphorescent
Digging this guy's new album. Some Petty in those vocals, some serious lilt in the production. + "at night" in the Sounds Best When.
"The Serpent is Kind (Compared to Man)" by Hiss Golden Messenger
Great version on Bad Debt. This, though, stopped me in my tracks today. It's going to be nice having this on my turntable next week: album streamin'
"Morgan's Bay" by Goldroom
Teacher pals are on spring break starting today. Spring breaky vibes on a sunny Friday by the bay. Others: http://soundcloud.com/goldroom
"Barcelona" by Ronnie Lane
from Just for a Moment
Ronnie Lane and Eric Clapton, I believe. This Lane compilation is my favorite find of 2013. Hope you're easing into your weekend, too.
"Say It Isn't True" by Jackson Browne
from Lawyers in Love
Heard this in a Walgreens last night, and 4 more times when I got home.
"What That Was" by Majical Cloudz
from Turns Turns Turns
Hat-tip to JayWar or else I probably wouldn't have noticed this EP at all. This cut is strong. Some great textures on both A-sides and the latter flip-side. The vocals are coming together, finding thoughtful moments in mostly banal stuff. Was very happy to see that this genre exists. Excited to see where these guys go from here.
"Song of a Sinner" by Top Drawer
from Forge Your Own Chains
I guess there are a lot of similarly-aimed comps out there these days, but Forge Your Own Chains has held my attention longer than most. The melted harpsichord sloshing around at the bottom of Song of a Sinner does it for me. I've considered making a bigger commitment to these guys, but have balked at the high-ish price attached to most reissue copies I've seen.
"Wrote A Song For Everyone" by Creedence Clearwater Revival
from Green River
I was inspired by Zeroy's post from this morning -- love all sorts of items that could fit in the jukebox ballad genre. Wrote a Song For Everyone is an all-time favorite. The timing in the little pre-verse piece -- with that sustain / half note on the 3rd downbeat -- does it for me, the whole tune is a gem.
Mavis Staple and Tweedy do a job on this too:
