Johnny Cash, "Cocaine Blues"
If you've got a blog, just a-read it to me.
Ivy Sole, "You Don't Know My Name"
Ivy Sole is out of Philadelphia, and this song comes from her excellent debut Eden. I came across this record thanks to one of the Bandcamp spotlight emails, which are always a good source of learning about artists.
Ernie Hines, "Electrified Love"
Ernie Hines's Electrified was a somewhat forgotten album released on Stax in 1972 until it was resurrected by hip-hop producers, which brought it to new audiences. It's a fine album, and this lead track gives you an idea of what you're in for.
Einstürzende Neubauten, "Sand"
Halber Mensch, to me, is the truly essential Neubauten album. Their noisy side is still present, but so many other aspects of their personality had also arrived. For example, this creepy song wouldn't have found its way onto their earlier albums. Impressive that an album this old can still sound as fresh as it does.
The Apples In Stereo, "If You Want To Wear A Hat"
A fun trifle from the Let's Go! EP. Honestly, the name of this EP is really kind of the perfect name for an Apples in Stereo record.
Short entry today. Sorry!
