Before Jeff Tweedy went solo he was at Wilco and even before that he was in Uncle Tupelo. This is a nice little gem of an instrumental from back in those days:
Robert Palmer was so much more then just the slick guy from his eighties videos (think “Addicted to Love”). A couple of days ago I heard “Woke up Laughing” on the radio from the 1980 album “Clues” (which also features “Johnny & Mary”) and I found this video on YouTube which features the iconic dancing Laurel & Hardy;
Call me late to the party, but I just “discovered” Fridge, which was (is?) a band that featured (features?) Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet), Adem Ilhan, and Sam Jeffers.
Kieran has since mostly focused on Four Tet, but based on this track I think the Fridge back-catalogue might be worth diving into.
Guess I heard this one on KCRW as well; Raury (an 18 year-old from Atlanta who released his debut earlier this year and opened for Outkast and collaborated with SBTRKT) chanting “I am the savior”.
This is one of those songs that prove that you don’t need to be a guitar-god to write a great song, 3 chords can be all it takes!
