It has been one hell of a week and considering the last few years, here’s to hoping we can put the brakes on before everything crashes apart. There is no politics in this episode, it simply is getting too painful to go there anymore. It seems necessary to let music stand alone in order to have any chance of letting the magic take hold and lift the spirit. A pair of “lifted spirits” get a farewell from Art Damage this time, groundbreaking humorist Mort Sahl and Jay Black, the otherworldly voice of Jay & The Americans. We also deal with the disturbing news that broke regarding Ken Stringfellow of one of our favorite bands, The Posies. We have Wilco covering The Beatles, The Raconteurs taking on James & Bobby Purify and new sounds from Simone Felice, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Shovels & Rope, Herbert, more from My Morning Jacket and the best new Elvis Costello track we’ve heard in ages. Joy Division prove to actually mix with The Captain & Tennille, Joining Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, The Velvettes, The Chameleons, Peter Murphy, Psychedelic Furs, Fila Brazillia, Pink Floyd, Morphine, Marvin Gaye, Primal Scream, Jethro Tull and plenty more.
