10 Songs: Sunday, September 19th, 2015



1 – If You Don’t Know Me By Now – Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes – The soul  equivalent of countrypolitan, this is ace sound of Philadelphia soul so orchestrated it is a wall of soul sound with a truncated hi ho beat singular and also generic – A

2 – Always Alright – Alabama Shakes – Don’t let the acoustic guitar through you, this is a new wave pop move – A

3 – Blank Space – Ryan Adams – nice double tracking on the vocals, just a finger picked guitar and the slightest nudge of the melody but it works so well. Always a great song so tough to screw up but Ryan doesn’t come close, every shading on the third time round on the verse is lovely  – A

4 – C’est La Vie – Stereophonics – Where did this come from? The album is nothing much but this is a fast paced minor masterpiece of UK Britpop – A

5 – Joan Of Arc – Madonna – If bad reviews make her cry, Madonna must be jumping for joy – A

6 – Lemme Know – Vince Staples – change up but the appearance of Jhene Aiko was a giveaway, a would be love song gone gangsta emo – A-

7 – A Boat Lies Waiting – David Gilmour – I loved this sad dream of a song so much I am seriously considering checking him out at MSG.

8 – Like A Virgin – Madonna – I fell for it all over after the MSG show – A+

9 – Babe Ruthless – Angel Haze – This is a great intro in search of an explosion -trap snares , all tense beat em ups – A

10 Heart Shaped Box – Steve Albini Production – Astonishing song, great clear cut version – A+
