Better late than never for Earworms this week – another interesting selection for you. Many thanks for all contributions, please keep your worms coming to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have songs you’d like to share.
4 Clefs – I Like Pie, I Like Cake – severin: False teeth back in again, the 4 Clefs are hungry. From a compilation called “The Jive is Jumping” as, indeed, it is.
Ry Cooder – John Lee Hooker for President – Ravi Raman: The album in which this features, “Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down”, is full of gems, and Ry Cooder is credited with playing all the instruments except drums. Published in 2011 the songs may have been written for today.
The Great American Canyon Band – Tumbleweed – glassarfemptee: Baltimore based The Great American Canyon Band is based around husband and wife Paul and Krystal Jean Masson. It says here. But I could have picked any number of their recent tracks, as they make consistently complex and engaging Americana.
Fantastic Negrito – In The Pines – tincanman: Last year the outspoken Oakland singer wrote some new verses to the traditional (Lead Belly, and others) classic as a tribute to modern day women who bury children lost to gun violence. The short film (https://goo.gl/ZGiqQ6) that goes with it is 9 minutes of your life you won’t want back.
Ocean Colour Scene – Riverboat Song – AliM: I heard this played by an excellent “covers” band on Sunday. I knew it but couldn’t place it, so I looked it up later, and was amazed to find it was by Ocean Colour Scene in 1996. Comparisons may be drawn with “Four Sticks” by Led Zeppelin, but I like it for itself.
