10 Songs: What rock nyc is listening to 1-12-14

On the Rails

























1. Bonnie Portmore – The Rails – aka Richard and Linda Thompson’s kid Kami and her husband James Walbourne singing an old Irish folk song about saving the forest or something. Their voices mesh very nicely on this oldie which dates back to 1976… so yeah even older than papa – A-

2. Ones I Love – Gross Ghost – A sort of proto-jam fuzzed out indie deal but better than that sounds – A-

3. Tenement – Gross Ghost – Earllier lo fi track – A-

4. No God – Cate Le Bon – Man she has a great voice, and this has an odd rhythm which seems to dip every third note – A_

5. Dismantling Summer – The Wonder Years –  A personal favorite, awesome bridge – A

6. On To The Next One – Jay Z – Classic Jay Z, if he could do this every time – A

7. Heartbeat In The Brain – The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die – Good to know – B+

8. Stay – David Bowie – Watching him perform this on a 1975 video off the Dinah Shore Show, I was impressed by something obvious but lost in the mist of times: it is disco – A+

9. Ride With Me – Schooner – Opened up last night, singer is really good – A-

10. Friend To Friend – Steel Phantoms – sounds like folk rock indie pop with real good guitars – B+
