Music Wednesday

I have so much music in my “new music” queue that I haven’t had the time to give everything a good solid listen. So this time you get 57-minutes of music covered over nine tracks. It’s a broad stroke of sounds, so have some patience if it doesn’t all reach your musical interests.

Each track has a unique link for a variety of streaming services. And if you use Apple Music, I created it as a playlist.

Enjoy!

Music Wednesday

Album Covers. Bambara. Jills Veranda. Ozzy. Stephen Malkmas.

A little something for everyone this week. It’s a 20-minute playlist starting gentle with Jill Johnson & Loney Dear and moving toward a close with Ozzy. How can you go wrong with Ozzy!?

I picked up the first track because I’m a huge fan of Loney Dear. Pushing play I discovered a lovely cover of Can’t Help Falling in Love with You sung as a duet with Jill Johnson.

For those who know me well, you know that I’ve been a huge Daniel Lanois fan since the 80s (when he produced a couple of my favorite U2 albums). In the 90’s, I created and ran a fan-based website for him. Here we see him return as part of the Red Dead Redemption II soundtrack. He’s got a few tracks on the album, but this one is my favorite. Enjoy That’s the Way It Is. Classic Lanois.

California Central Valley band Pavement broke up in 2000, but the primary songwriter, lead singer, and guitarist has some new music out now. Stephen Malkmus sounds great throughout the Traditional Techniques album, but my favorite track so far is Xian Man. A great retro sound reminiscent of the Velvet Underground.

I’m not recalling where I came across this next band, but I was interested in the band from the first listen to their new album Stray. They’re categorized as punk, but this probably means the modern definition of punk rather than the 80s version of punk. This is the opening track. Miracle.

Ozzy. Ozzy. Ozzy. What can I say? I’m a fan. After the most excellent 2013 Black Sabbath album, I was curious to hear what Ozzy had in store for us in 2020. He gets a little soft with the Elton John song and a little hip hop with the Malone song, but it’s the opening track that sounds like Ozzy. Abrasive. Humorous. And a great guitar solo by Slash. Even the title speaks Ozzy: Straight to Hell.

Happy listening.

Music Wednesday

I can’t believe it’s been a month since the last music posting. So, now it’s 2020 and a whole new release of music. Some of these are older (2019) but still excellent.

  1. In the Afternoon by MGMT. This is their teaser song before the entire album is dropped (we hope). Dreamy pop circa 1980. Apple Music | Spotify | YouTube
  2. for L by Jeff Parker. Pretty straight forward jazz on this track. Some of the others on Suite for Max Brown are a bit more edgy. Guitar jazz. Apple Music | Spotify | YouTube
  3. Magpie’s Nest by Bonny Light Horseman. I’m really digging this new album. I’ll place it in the folk category. Apple Music | Spotify | YouTube
  4. Immigrant Boogie by Ghostpoet. Hypnotic and dark. Apple Music | Spotify | YouTube
  5. Beograd by SebastiAn. Dance. Apple Music | Spotify | YouTube

Enjoy!
