A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
Chewey Marble - Modulations (2008) and Betty Drake - Grape and Red (2003)
I've also been listening to all my Model Rockets and Tripwires cds lately. Can't seem to
get enough of 'em.
Here is a fun one with a young Eric CarmenCyrus Erie - "Get the Message" (1969, ft. Eric Carmen)
Jason Falkner's All Quiet on the Noise Floor -- Includes new (in 2009) studio versions of "Princessa," "My Home Is Not a House," and "This Time" and a Be-Bop Deluxe cover ("Jet Silver and the Dolls of Venus"). His "Evangeline" is better than Matthew Sweet's (different songs, same title).
This week on the way to work I've been listening to:
Nick Lowe - The Old Magic
Dave Edmunds - Best of
Fountains of Wayne - Sky Full of Holes
I just read about this group in the Metro today. The song is fun. The video is hysterical.
Have you heard the new Meyerman disc? That one's pretty good too.
What are your recommends?
That is a good one! I Was worried earlier this year when the only stand out was The Insomniacs new one, but since late July/early August the gates have been opened and there has been a bunch of really good stuff.
Others to look for are:
The Bangles - Sweetheart Of The Sun
Pugwash - The Olympus Sound
Everybody Else - Wanderlust
Dark Ocean Colors - Dark Ocean Colors
The Handcuffs - Waiting For The Robot
Wiretree - Make Up
Kelly's Heels - Playing Into Your Hands
Thanks so much for that! I'll be spending my time this weekend the best way I know how, listening to some new music. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Yeah, I too thought it was a slow year for music until summer got here. It's been a bonanza of good stuff since. I think your comment about the Insomniacs release being the only noteworthy one up till summer is really accurate.
I've been playing the new FOW alot too. My guess is that you've already hear it but in the event that you haven't, it's a good one too.
Thanks again, Curt!
