Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
It sure has been a long time. I get so wrapped up in the end of the Baseball Season that I wind-up missing October sometimes and this was one of those years, even though my Yankees failed to achieve the playoffs. Oh well... big congrats to The Giants and Kansas City for a great World Series. Now I get to fully concentrate on music for the 150 or so days until Opening Day.
Here's an update of mostly new stuff that I've been digging.
Rust never sleeps and apparently neither does Neil. From making records in Jack White's record booth to fighting with Crosby and a very public romantic upheaval, Neil's been in the news. I hope at least some attention is paid to this wonderful new album. All the songs are presented solo, some with a 92 piece orchestra, a 60 piece orchestra and some with a big band.
I only knew Gary as one of the most respected Music Supervisors in the business and a fine radio host but never knew he was also a songwriter/musician. This is a killer EP and every track is filled to the brim with hooks, attitude and sublime pop musicality. Get this record. Extra points for the nod to Dr. Winston O'Boogie with the cover art too!
Many have asked how to keep the From The Basement programs afloat, especially now that I am unemployed. Please donate via PayPal below whatever you feel you can afford to help cover my costs. Thank you.
