10 Songs: What rock nyc Is Listening To 1-23-14

He And Liza


























1. Me And Liza – Rufus Wainwright – “Famous till the day that we die….” After tributing her Mama, Rufus, on this Out Of The Game outtake, sings a pure pop Rufus style kiss to the legend; the song is a standard MOR sound which I kinda hope he grows out of – B+

2. Keep The Car Running – Arcade Fire – Despite the dream state I always considered this a political song, that a kidnapping is about to occur, like Chili in the 1960s or something. It is a mysterious and scary thing – A+

3. Heaven And Hell – Black Sabbath – The era of the late great Dio personified; it takes over three minutes to get there but it gets there eventually with every rush of notes like flashes of silver – A

4. Hexon Begon – Mogwai – Rolling swatches of rock and roll instrumentation chasing itself from piano to guitar – B+

5. Wiskey And Gin – James Chance And The Contortions  – Johnny Ray cover, sounds like pure swing – B+

6. You Make Me Feel Like Dancing – The Wiggles – Leo Sayer cover off their new greatest hits, it’s like kids muzak pop with a sense of humor (dog barking not included) – B+

7. Run For Cover – Cazzette – Tracks galore on this kitchen sink house track – B+

8. The High Road – Broken Bells – Why do I bother with these guys?  – C

9. Tougher Colder Killer – El-P, Killer Mike – Personally? Ithink El-P should keep to production when it comes to Killer Mike. Still, that’s some flow – B+

10. Nunca Me Acuerdo de Olidarte – Shakira – Second song off her first album in years, is somewhat average Latin American pop – B
