I'm just loving JJ's session at All Saints in London!! Here is my new favorite song from him, "Trouble". I also had to include the other 2 songs from this session "It's All Over Your Body", which is off his upcoming album, and an old favorite cover of "Park Bench People". I just looooove live music.
Blue October's latest Any Man In America is one helluva break-up album. It may also end up being my hands-down favorite from this very talented band. "The Chills" is definitely the most rocking track. Pity the director seemed more interested in shooting an Abercrombie & Fitch ad.
I heard 'King of Pain' this morning in boxing class and gosh that song blows me away...I never really liked The Police back when this was released in 1983 (I was probably listening to my Flashdance album for the 800th time!) but this is a great album mostly because its so synthesizer-oriented and not quite as reggae-influenced as their earlier work.
I'm not a fan of beard-o indie rock. At all. You can keep your Bon Ivers & your Fleet Foxes, thank you very much. And one look at a press photo from Manchester Orchestra might have one thinking they too belong on that heap of pansy dreck. But alas, they rock. Here's "Shake It Out" from their second LP Mean Everything To Nothing.
The last "official" mix CD from Dixon and last DJ mix CD from the top-notch Live At Robert Johnson label.
Probably one of the best mixes (in a sea of never-ending podcasts) to be released this year.
Great mix Calero. When they launch a new release they usually do a presentation night at Robert Johnson where they give a bunch of copies for free. Amazing club, possibly still one of the best clubs around the world. Small, familiar, great PA and the terrace is just amazing....
