10 Songs: Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Stop it, stop it

Stop it, stop it

1. Stop Your Stobbing – the Kinks –  Those background harmonies, Ray’s wife at the time, right, the “oooh ooohs” under “stop it stop it”? I could listen to it forever. It is like Torre giving the ball to Cone for one out in game six of the world series in 2000: Ray wasn’t doing her a favor, he used her for what the song needed – A

2. They Want My Soul – Spoon – Every time I am ready to give in and just think, hey maybe I got Spoon wrong, they follow a “Do It” with this song, which isn’t the worst thing in the world, right? But is awful obvious – B

3. Sorry – Laura Marling – You know? Fuck Beck, does he really think this is gonna work, can’t hear what he did to the chorus? As for Laura, she lives in LA, she had no choice in the matter – C-

4. Head Underwater – Jenny Lewis – very good song to open her new albu, enough to pull you in – B+

5. It Was Always You – Maroon 5 – A little obvious, a little disappointing, certainly not the falsetto force field “Maps” was, but not a dog either: a by the numbers M5 rock EDM mix – B

6. Revolution – Diplo – This is where Diplo mines the Calvin Harris-Avicii- world of lead singers on pop songs plus beats – C

7. Crying Eyes – Eric Clapton – Last song on the JJ Cale tribute is also the best track not featuring mark Knopfler – A

8. Racy – Hooray For earth – Indie rockers do it the way it is meant to be done – B+

9. Hurricane Heart – Marc Brossard – The definition of Americana – B+

10. Bill Graham Introduction/Statesboro fair – the Allman Brothers – Nice to hear Bill’s voice, pretty average version – B+
