“Amphetamine: – Steve Wynn and the Miracle Three
Such a great frickin’ driving song if you want to get yourself a speeding ticket… by the way, I don’t recommend the ticket…
“Hoover Dam” – Sugar
I had a review half written called “the Return of Peanut Girl,” but I never finished it. Anyway, Copper Blue sounds awesome on vinyl and you can find it at your better record stores.
“Deathly” – Aimee Mann
Any excuse to put Aimee Mann on a playlist is a good excuse. Still haven’t heard back from her… I’m guessing she doesn’t read my blog.
“Coming Home” – Leon Bridges
Soul music has a new champion and his name is Leon Bridges. Keep your eyes open folks, this guy is for real!
“Sliver” – Nirvana
Still bummed about missing my shot… maybe another will show up in 10 years.
“You Really Got Me” – The Kinks
After the disappointment of the new Van Halen live, I couldn’t even bring myself to play one of their songs. So here is something way better.
“The Lovecats” – Tanya Donelly & Dylan In Motion
Donelly is awesome and the Cure are awesome, so getting two for the price of one. Now if Robert Smith could cover “Feed The Tree” we… just kidding.
“Someplace” – Nick Waterhouse
He hasn’t put Holly out on Spotify, so I went with “Someplace” from his first record. I will be talking about Holly in the upcoming weeks. Spoiler – it is AWESOME! Buy it here!
“Ain’t Messin’ Round” – Gary Clark Jr
Just because I wanted to stay in that rockin’ soul vibe.
“My Mind Is Rambling” – The Black Keys
A seven inch split is coming out in Record Store Day of the Black Keys and Junior Kimbrough, so I thought why not throw a Black Keys cover of Junior just for the hell of it. Besides – it fits.
“Touch Me I’m Sick” – Mudhoney
Turns out fictional band Citizen Dick (see movie Singles) is releasing “Touch Me I’m Dick” for RSD 2015. Can’t wait to hear it! Anyway, here is the original song that led to that play on words.
“Everyone Knows” – Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
Jett has a double album being released for RSD, so I put her in the mix… because she is a rock god and I need no other reason.
“Machine Gun Blues” – Social Distortion
I am so looking forward to getting my hands on that first Social Distortion record next Saturday.
“Alex Chilton” – The Replacements
Another 7” being released this weekend is reason enough… I miss Chilton.
“Back In Your Head” – Tegan & Sara
Um are you picking up on a theme that surrounds a certain date that has rare vinyl being released.
“Runaway” – Del Shannon
I’ll be doing a review on this guy soon.
“I’d Run Away” – The Jayhawks
Read a rather depressing article on these guys recently. Awesome band that can never seem to catch a break…
“The Cuckoo” – Kristin Hersh
Leader of the Throwing Muses and incredible singer/songwriter in a varied solo career (check out Hips & Makers if you need proof) she also has a 7” of “The Cuckoo” coming out on RSD.
“Brass Buttons” – The Lemonheads
Yep. A split 7” of the Lemonheads and the original Gram Parsons tune is arriving on Saturday.
“Jesus Christ” – Big Star
Only reason I put a Christmas song on a April playlist is because of RSD… irony is, the original release of this song was on a record that had nothing to do with the holiday season either.
