Beth Orton Friday Night N
Weather Alive Partisan Records / Liberator Music 2022
I've only heard two songs and my first impression is that trying to get this album across on the radio as less than a whole won't be easy for those unfamiliar with Beth Orton. This song completely envelops me, though. It's beautiful and fragile and the musical backing - somewhat on the jazz periphery - is perfect for this song. I've listened to it four times in a row now and it draws me in more each time. Will it top her album, Central Reservation? Not likely. Not many albums can. But I'm looking forward to hearing it in its entirety to find out.

Bedouine, Waxahatchee & Hurray for the Riff Raff Thirteen
Thirteen - Single Spacebomb Records 2020
This 2020 single is like a dream collaboration for me. Azniv Korkejian (Bedouine), Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee), and Alynda Mariposa Segarra (Hurray for the Riff Raff) all take a verse of this Big Star song and they all harmonize on the choruses. Sublime. Written by Chris Bell and Alex Chilton.
The Paranoid Style Steve Cropper Plays Femme Fatale N
For Executive Meeting Bar/None Records 2022
Your basic song referencing Steve Cropper, Wussy, Big Star, Lou Reed, a couple of classic songs, and a couple of classic albums all in the span of two minutes with infectious musical backing drawing from the good part of seventies rock and roll.
