Grooving away to Lions in the Street and Howling Bells here. Hope this latest batch of worms takes your fancy, and please keep sending them in to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks all.
Lions in the Street – You’re Gonna Lose ….tincanman: Pin-back-your-ears-and-let-‘er-rip rock and roll from stubborn “we’ll do things our own damn way, thank you very much” Vancouver outfit.
Howling Bells – Setting Sun – bethnoir: An Australian band with a lovely swooning sound, this song gets stuck in my head for days at a time, but none of their other tracks have grabbed me.
Bob Evans – Sitting in the Waiting Room – deanofromoz: Bob Evans is one my favourite singer/songwriters, and on this track I think he really sums up the nervousness and worry that one feels when they accompany a loved one to a medical appointment where the worst is feared.
Tackhead – Class Rock – DsD: As full of hooks as the fish lure I stepped on during our Cornish holiday. ‘Nuff said.
Frank Black – Old Black Dawning – beltway: I love a song that bursts on, dazzles you, achieves everything it needs to achieve, then buggers off again, all in under two minutes – not many people can do that well, but Frank Black does it perfectly here, hurtling across the Galaxy, comparing his mission to the doomed tower of Babel, and indulging in a beautiful instrumental break. Seriously underrated song.
Antonio Chainho & Marta Dias – Fadinho Simples – goneforeign: Antonio Chainho has been playing guitar since soon after WW2 as an accompanist to Portugal’s most famous singers. He’s performed duets with the world’s greatest guitarists and recorded albums with the London Symphony, here he accompanies Marta Dias.
