Thinskinned

I can’t believe it would be better
if I was hard as nails,
and you were tough as leather.

This such an awesome song

Goodsongs: The Weight, Nowhere Now

weightnowhere

While browsing around for new music, I came across The Weight’s 2011 record, Nowhere Now. Here’s my quick review.

Artist: The Weight

Title: Nowhere Now

Genre: Alt. Country

Favorite Song:
Dixie – “Don’t say you’re sorry. It’s over. It’s cool.”

Interesting Fact:
One of the most promising groups on the new millennium’s alt-country scene, The Weight was founded by singer and composer Joseph Plunket, a veteran of the Atlanta, GA, punk rock scene who around the turn of the century began writing material that reflected his love of country music.

Review:
I’ve always liked The Weight’s vibe. Rock, with a country influence. Every song on this record isn’t excellent, but there’s plenty here to make it worth a listen.

Rating: ★★★★

Like Most Things It Comes Down to Money

I’m sure I’ve talked about this song before, but at least one of us has forgotten.  So once more, one of my favorite songs.

 

Sandra Lynn’s Blues if off South Filthy‘s wonderfully titled 2002 record You Can Name It Yo’ Mammy If You Wanna….  It’s a pretty uneven record.  It’s got some bad songs, some OK songs and a few excellent songs, including Spyder Blues, which is essentially the same song with different lyrics.

They have at least one other record, 2006’s Crackin’ Up.

A little more information on the band is available here.

Up from the ground, up from the cold.
I’ve been here before, I know how this goes.

Baby, No One’s Doing Fine

When I listen to a new song the first time, and without even listening to the words carefully, I find myself getting wistful or misty-eyed, I know I have found something special.

That happened a while ago, via The Loft on XM Radio.

 

Fire Mountain, the pride of Troy, Alabama.  After listening to Doing Fine about 25 times, I went to Spotify, and listened to the rest of their excellent new record, All Dies Down.  Music like this is why I have ears.  Wonderful.  Highly recommended.

GoodSongs: Feelin’ Alright?

No one covers a song like Joe Cocker.

Leon Russell on guitar.  Yep, guitar.

Feelin’ alright?
Not feelin’ too good myself
