Hear Ye On Spotify: what rock nyc is listening to 9-25-13

The devil got him in the end

1.  Hellhound On My Trail – Robert Johnson – The legend starts here with Johnson pursued by a Hell Hound and wailing his blues. Recorded in 1937, it sounds really fresh today, weary but fresh – A+

2. Family Tree – Kings Of Leon – A mid album jam and not all that – B-

3. Downtown At Dawn – Richard Hell And The Voidoids – From 1982 and it survives as a striking snapshot of a scene long gone – A

4. Then We Kiss – Icona Pop – I’m gonna give this a “B+” but if they release it as a single and it hits the charts? All the way to an  “A” – B+

5. Pound Cake/Paris Morton 2 – Drake And Jay Z- Jay – Z sounds like Drake here but he is still singing about money (or cake –apparently)- C+

6. Talk Dirty – Jason DeRulo – Catchy smash if you ask me plus awesome break in the middle – B+

7. Dancing On The Ceiling – Lionel Richie – Some 30 years later, his hits sound better than they did then – B+

8. All Apologies Demo – Nirvana – The druggy junk drag of the original is changed into a bright lick on this instrumental version – B

9. Incompetent  Assassin – David Bronson – Has grown into a favorite where its lo-fi downbeat is more easily heard as a melodic stroke after seeing it performed live – A

10. Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I Go Mine) – Bob Dylan – The 1974 live version which seems intent on beating you down with its anger where Dylan’s cyncicism was more of a shrug on Blonde On Blonde – A
