10 Songs: Saturday, January 24th, 2015

Frisell And Costello

Frisell And Costello

1 – The Sweetest Punch – Bill Frisell, Elvis Costello – Bill Frisell’s excellent title track, companion piece,  to Painted From Memory loses nothing in this glorious horn swept arrangement… the clarinet replaces the voice – A

2 – Battle Of The Mighty I – Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Noel might be right when he claims Beady Eye were a good band with lousy songs, but what does that make these guys? – C

3 – Allie – Belle And Sebastian – This little rocker doesn’t work, it’s like Ray Davies without the words and without the melody – C+

4 – A Soft Place To Fall – Allison Moorer – I’ll be really interested to hear the post- Earle album, she’s a talent woman and this oldie is a pleasure – B+

5 – Red House – Jimi Hendrix – Written for Linda Keith (Keith Richards wrote “Ruby Tuesday” for the same woman) though the line about hooking up with her sister shows just how romantic Jimi could be – A

6 – Volunteers – Jefferson Airplane – Grace stares Amerika down – A+

7 – Moon Funeral – Cloakrooms – Fuzzy indie rockers with a bucket of sludge – B

8 – Somebody To Love – Jefferson Airplane – If Booker T played an electrical guitar, he would sound like this – A+

9 – Little Death (feat Nikki Jean) – Lupe Fiasco – Nikki has a fabulously feathery touch which brightens the chorus while Lupe dips deep in the verses – B+

10 – Muslim Wedding (Dirty) – Action Bronson – I prefer him live – B
