In which we go from Whiskey Myers to Ludovico Einaudi via Bobby Darin. And is it just me, but does that wonderful Dandylion track remind you of Cirrus Minor (an entirely good thing) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wwtc5I757Jc? See what you think. And please keep sending those worms to firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks all.
Whiskey Myers – Guitar Picker – LeaveitAllbehind: well I like country, I like guitaaaars, well this has got it’s roots in country and as per the title some extreme “picking” and “plucking” of a six-string.
Black – Womanly Panther – DsD: One of the most earwormy earworms I’ve had in a long time. Colin Vearncombe gives us a tango, of all things, from the brand-new Black album Blind Faith. This song will now forever remind DsMam & me of CV’s lovely warm’n’fuzzy hometown gig this April .
Bobby Darin – Light Blue – Albahooky: Here’s one that seems to go with basking in the sun. Listening to the Country Funk Vol.1 comp on the ever dependable Light In The Attic label, this track caught my ears and when I saw the name thought ‘no, it can’t be, can it’ and sure enough it is but without the ‘by’. He’s light years away from the rock ‘n’ roll and tuxedo style of the ’50’s and ’60’s but he still knows how to swing.
Patty Griffin – Mary – tincanman: Written for her grandmother’s funeral, this is an unforgettable ode to women everywhere.
Dandylion – Mama Bear – severin: Marianne from Katzenjammer’s other band. They’ve released three ep’s now amalgamated into one album. Most tracks are faster and more rockist than this but I find the haunting atmosphere of this song irresistible.
Ludovico Einaudi – Primavera – glassarfemptee: I have troubled your ears before with the piano noodlings of Ludovico Einaudi. But as I am booked to see a gig of his this summer, and as it’s now definitely Spring (everyone’s favourite season), here he is with Primavera. Since nearly every tune of his comes from an earworm factory, I can’t promise not to inflict more Einaudi on you in the future!
