Into The Groove: Best New Album Tracks 1-19-18-1-25-19

1- Opening Act (The Shooby Dooby Song) – Bahamas – It isn’t that Afie is using D’Angelo’s rhythm section, though  drummer James Gadson’s opening shuffle on this song has you at hello. It is that the “shooby dooby”‘s are an ace hook, the song is all melody and soft funk ,and the self portrait is self-effacing without being false, it is a mirror into the business of pop music.

2 -Roll On Slow – Glen Hansard – Irish soul man who has been around awhile opens his latest album with a sure shot that works as a gateway drug to a very,very good set.

3- Do YouThink About Me – Caitlyn Smith – The Nashville songwriter goes front and center, but she doesn’t have the charism and if she has the songs I can’t hear em… except for this one.

3 – wings – Eden – It starts like an electronic experimental track before expanding into a phasey, strange tempo, mindfuck.

4 – Young Adult -Inara George – Off a pretty good singer songwriter album filled with jazz inflections and LA soft rock moods, this is the best of them… it puts you in mind of Carole King.Who probably knew Inara’s daddy as well.

5 -Trampled Down Below – Bad mood, somber goth like till it kicks in when it becomes  metal Sabbath-y stuff -what’s not to like?

6 – Oh Well – Live At capitol Theatre, Passaic New Jersey 10/17/75- Peter Green’s Mac blues masterpiece, almost a prototype new blues track for the time, performed by his former band but mostly to prove Lindsey Buckingham was a guitar giant and true pretender to the throne.
