Dread is the first word that pops in the old brain when Labor Day comes around for a variety of reasons. There's the obvious impending end of Summer which means the return of the Fall allergies and even worse, the start of the end of my beloved Baseball Season. Even when The Yankees are running away with it, which they certainly are not this year, that same feeling of impending doom approaches my psyche. One thing that always makes life worth living when Summer and Baseball start to fade for me is music. I'm going to try to put off the blues by getting back into sharing some of it with you on a much more regular basis. Going forward there will be music that's new, old, known, unknown, loud, soft and even sometimes sticky, but I'll get back to a more regular schedule of letting you know what I've been listening to in The Basement.
Let's begin with a few new ones.
Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
I have been very ill for the last week but everything is looking good now. Here's some random tunes, new and old worth checking out. We'll begin with one of my favorite new releases, the new effort from Low.
My Morning Jacket return with "Circuital"
Speaking of My Morning Jacket, this Jim James collaboration with Booker T. Jones is my absolute favorite new song!
I think this is their best song to date.
Robert Plant reminded me about this great old Small Faces track.
Sometimes I really need to hear a little Dino to brighten my day.
Finally, since I missed posting on Mother's Day, let's close with this tear-jerker.
