Motörhead Ace of Spades
Ace of Spades Sanctuary Records 1996
The Heavy Fire N
Sons BMG Rights Management (UK) Limited 2019
Not heavy like Motorhead, but cool soul based rock.
Sam the Sham & The Pharoahs The Phantom
The Complete Wooly Bully Years Bear Family 2004
The only vaguely Halloween-based song in my repertoire today.
Aimee Mann Hold On N
Come On Up To the House: Women Sing Waits Dualtone Music Group, Inc. 2019
I'm excited to hear this collection of great singers tackling great Tom Waits songs.
Beth Bombara I Only Cry When I'm Alone N
Evergreen Lemp Electric 2019
A song that already sounds like an old favorite after only a few months.
Ruth Brown Since I Fell For You
Black Is Brown And Brown Is Beautiful Vampisoul 1969
The great Ruth Brown helped build Atlantic Records in the early 50s, but kept making wonderful music for decades.
The Highwomen Wheels of Laredo N
The Highwomen Low Country Sound/Elektra 2019
Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, Maren Morris, and Natalie Hemby - I love a good supergroup!
JD McPherson Why Lady Why
High Cotton: A Tribute To Alabama Lightning Rod 2013
I paid no attention to Alabama when they were one of the most popular bands in the country - but McPherson shows me this was a good song, at least.
Robert Cray I Wonder
Strong Persuader Mercury Records 2015
This record came out in 1986, the third album in his impeccable and consistent career.
The T-Bones Walkin' My Cat Named Dog
No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In) Collectables 1966
Basically, this is the famed Wrecking Crew of studio musicians in the 60s.
Belle and Sebastian Sister Buddha
Days of the Bagnold Summer Matador 2019
I've not paid close attention to these guys, but the songs I've heard on this new one are among the best I've heard from them.
Allah-Las On Our Way
LAHS Mexican Summer 2019
They named the album after the way people misspelled their band name. Oh, and the songs are good, too!
The Pentangle Line 1968
The Crickets Lonesome Tears
Chirpin' Crickets Brunswick 1958
Buddy Holly album cuts - you don't hear them every day, but they're fascinating.
James Carter Anouman N
James Carter Organ Trio: Live From Newport Jazz Blue Note Records 2019
James Carter plays Django Reinhardt-associated tunes in a decidedly non-gypsy format. It's brilliant!
Continental Drifters You're Gonna Need Somebody
Drifted: In the Beginning & Beyond Omnivore Recordings 2015
This wondrous band did, among many other accomplishments, some of the best Richard Thompson covers ever!
Richard Thompson How I Wanted To
Hand of Kindness Ryko/Rhino 1983
A mesmerizing cut from Richard himself.
Roxy Music Angel Eyes
Manifesto EG Records 1999
This 1979 album was actually my introduction to Roxy Music, or at least the songs that were played on KWUR at the time were.

The remade version of this song originally on Music For a New Society.

Shopping Asking For A Friend
The Official Body Fat Cat Records 2017
Brit band with a decidedly Wire flavor.

It was 1980, and disco was looking for a way into the future.
Esperanza Spalding Move Many (Joints) N
12 Little Spells (Deluxe Edition) Concord Records 2019
She's becoming one of those artists who exist in a category all their own. I love her!
Brittany Howard History Repeats N
Jaime ATO Records / Fontana North 2019
One of my very favorite records this year to date.
Bill Callahan The Ballad of the Hulk N
Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest Drag City Records 2019
Sometimes he's Smog, sometimes he's himself. This is an odd duck of a song, but if you remember the Hulk TV series back in the day, it will make more sense.
The JudyBats Down In the Shacks Where the Satellite Dishes Grow
Down In the Shacks Where the Satellite Dishes Grow Rhino/Warner Records 1992
One of those bands that should have been way more popular but which got overwhelmed by the trends of the day.
The Incurables Like a Star L

This St. Louis band led by Jimmy Griffin made two very fine albums back in the 00's.
