Hear Ye On Spotify: what rock nyc is listening 11-24-13

why is this woman winking?

1. Long Snake Moan – PJ Harvey – A blues classic, I went to see Harvey three times on this time, indeed see her fanbase move her from the Academy to the Beacon, and this song was the set highlight. This is so exual and so deep, it is a swampy wet femininity she never did again. It’s her mojo working – A

2. Americano – Roger Clyne And The Peacemakers – 1990s American from a hard whipped rock band – B+

3.  On Sight – Kanye West – How much does he not give a fuck? – A

4, There’s A Kind Of Hush – Herman Hermits – Sweetness and light and love – A

5. Love Is Lost – Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA – David Bowie – This has grown into my favorite remix, just inching Daft Punk’s nine minute “Get Lucky”, Steve Reich must be pleased – A

6. Electric Counterpoint – Fast Movement 3 – Steve Reich with Pat Methany – Here Steve does for a guitar lick what he does for clapping above – A

7. Steve Reich : WTC 9/11.I. 9/11 – Kronos Quartet, Steve Reich – Reich’s song, daughter-in-law and Grandaughter were living four blocks from WTC when the 9-11 attack occured. Reich uses the Kronois string quarter and recordings from NORAD and the Fire Department for this aural memory, released in 2011 – A

8. Over The Hills And Far Away – Gary Moore – Thin Lizzy’s other star, died two years ago and here you can hear why he was so mourned in Europe – A-

9. Indianapolis – The Bottle Rockets – Americana with a shaking rhythm section – A-

10. Dream A Little Dream – Robbie Williams and Lily Allen – Allen sounds so sweet, and Robbie is a smoothy, completely unnecessary but harmless enough – C+
