Music Q1 2015

IT IS APRIL ALREADY WAAAAAHHHT?   Bob (duh), Joe (swoon) and Rhiannon (also swoon) are my picks for 2015 so far but all these are great.  I‘m keeping track of all the music I get (spreadsheet alert)this time so hopefully at the end of the year I won’t forget about so many things ….

Leo Welch – I Don’t Prefer No Blues 

I do still prefer his first album which was very high in my top 10 of last year – that had more of a backyard spontaneous quality, and this is more like exactly what you can hear on every other Fat Possum release but still.  Blues!

Pops-Staples-Dont-Lose-This

Bei Ru – Saturday Night at the Magic Lamp As close to dance/electronic music as I ever get. I think I prefer his previous one In Armenia though.

Swamp Dogg – The White Man Made Me Do It

The chitlin circuit Randy Newman is back and although it’s not the slightest bit representative of the album I can’t not use this live version of “Sam Stone” ….
