The Mix July 24th, 009: Love flows and jones

Let Your Love Flow – The Bellamy Brothers – Sure it’s bland but it is comforting and it’s a song sung blue -everybody can singalong. Complaining about the brothers Bellamy is like complaining about a peanut butter and jelly on white -it’s kinda bad mannered to whinge that it is mass produced and non-descriptive when you like it so much.

Going Home – Mark Knopfler
I Love Salsa – N’Klabe
She Wolf – Shakira – The falsetto chorus is perplexing and the heavy breathing bizarre, the drum machine incessant and the song as nondescript as Shakira has made in a long, long time.

Heart’s Beats and Shades In Physical embrace – Charlie Mingus – From Lester Bang’s fave album.

One More Day – Brinsley Schwartz – Robert Nevin says: “My first time ever hearing a song by Brinsley Schwarz. Written by Ian Gomm; I supposed that’s his vocal. I believe I hear Nick in the background”

Mi Mulata – Frankie Negron – He is as good as Jerry Rivera but not better.

Lonely Is (As Lone Does) – the dB’s
Evil – D.C. Snipers
Bad Complexion – Spider Bags
Coahula – Old 97s – “I’m suffering from a kinda indecision about what I’m gonna watch on television”.

Fidelity – Regina Spektor – Her best song till “Ink Stains” arrived. The most subtle of background pianos and strings throb somewhere as she sings to a lost love and (and I love this, it is something I just admired so much) the song is about writing songs that break her heart and break her fall simultaneously.

Bob Dylan’s Dream – Bob Dylan
Man Out Of Time – Elvis Costello
Here, My Dear – Marvin Gaye – Written for Berry Gordy’s daughter, the title song of perhaps his greatest album, his voice is so full of feeling and there is no clearer song (actually songs) about betrayal. I will get around to reviewing the entire album one of these days.

The Static Age – Green Day
Alcoholics Unanimous – Art Brut
Say Please – Monsters Of Folk
Oh My God – Kaiser Chiefs – Opening for Green Day tomorrow so get there early. They have yet to improve on their first album “Employment” but their new wavy rock will kill live.
