Bill Withers was born on the 4th of July, the perfect day to hear his lost song of tough-love for America.
This stunningly sparse song was buried in the demos for an album Costello wrote for someone else.
On Landing on a Hundred, ChesnuTT runs a gorgeously tight ship, something that nods to the past stylistically without ever succumbing to the laziness of retro rehash.
Jorge & Kevin put “New Lace Sleeves” in Costello’s 10…no make that 5…no, actually 2…best songs of all time. Or better. Hear ’em out.
The snarling, unhinged, fuzzed-out fury of “2+2=?” is a side of Bob Seger most people haven’t heard. It’s also Jack White’s favorite Seger song. And it’s about to become yours, too.
Spirit In The Dark is possibly the greatest album by our greatest living singer. It’s also fallen in to undeserved obscurity.
