Hear Ye On Spotify: what rock nyc is listening to 10-14-13

Blacksploit this

1. Nobody Wants You When You’re Down And on – Bobby Womack – aaaah, yeah, Bobby really nails it on this one. They don’t make soul like this any more though Womack is at City Winery in December so he should be playing it like this – A

2. Knock Louder – Dale Earnhardt jr. jr. – This couldn’t be a sweeter sound, just lovely. McCartneyish beauty  – A-

3. Love Me Again – John Newman – The soul man of England DJ rock band culture, or something like that, creams it every time – A

4. Las Vegas Girl – Conor Maynard – While you wait for his new one to drop, this is a reminder as to why you love the kid – A-

5. Maximum G – Certain General – Very proto-Joy Division, future past rock sound, apparently killed it at the CCBGB fest – A

6. Rats – Tuff Darts – Man, I must have seen these guys a thousand times, a great rock band – A

7. Walk The Other Way – Jahn Xavier And The Bowerytones – This is such a great pop song, catchy and soulful it reminds me of Gamble and Huff – A

8.Stepping Out With My Baby – Tony Bennett and Christina Aguillara – I never said Christina had a bad voice, not close, I said she had zero taste in music. Here is an exception – B+

9. Somebody to Love – Tuff darts – TD take on Queen and do very well by them by rearranging for a straight up rock band – A-

10. Across 110th Street – Bobby Womack – Feel blacksploited yet? Try again if you don’t – A
