Black Coffee - I Barely Know Her.

Nice rock band.....

I got their album Take One and really like it so far.
This song is a real standout IMO.  Has a blues/Zep feel to it.

Fiona Apple - "I Want You To Love Me"  off her new album Fetch the Bolt Cutters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N541HLPeG6Y

This album is not music but poetry. It is not for everyone. People with perfect lives, looks and careers will not get her, but for people who are anything but - she is a calming listen and embrace:  - "I am with you"... she whispers... Thank you sister.

Lots of Alter Bridge but I seem to always play these three a couple times when they come around:

Shed My Skin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aUdqOG0_qQ
Find the Real: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9LZ0OkdxGg
Wouldn't You Rather: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAz1vYAwVKE

AB is on a continuous loop on my computer as I tackle working from home and general ISOLATION: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_viH3FchWI

So glad I got to see them in February before all this started shutting everything down.

LIVE MUSIC IS BEST

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Mapache - Liberty Street
Something new, thanks to brother Curby, this has been regularly in the CD spinner and scratching a good itch. Mapache are an American duo, Sam Blasucci & Clay Finch who deliver a potent mix of Mexican boleros, Hawaiian surf and lonesome cowboy campfire tunes with an easy charm and engaging chemistry, the equal of Bros Landreth. This is really making my folicles fidget.

Beau Bowen - The Great Anticlimax
So after waiting 10 days between ordering and the disc flying through the letterbox, the first impression is the title of this album is so wrong, not an anticlimax at all - it's a speaker blower of an album.

Looking like a hybrid of T.Rex and Mott The Hoople, in the tallest platforms I've seen this side of 1974 (excluding Kiss) the artist formerly known as Kaleb McKane has re-invented himself as a Space/Glam refugee and has fused a gritty edge to Be Bop Deluxe to form a new style of Space rock - as orchestral as Uli Roth but not as twiddly as Yngwie Malmsteen; the sort of album Mick Ronson never had time to complete.

Chris King Robinson - She's Got 9 Lives (2018)

One of those albums I've been promising myself since it came out and in these days when artists need a little support, I thought the time was right. The big push though came when I found a message from Chris in the depths of my Facebook from a couple of years ago, looking to crowdfund his debut album - quick tip, if you approach me on my blind side, you'll find it's also my deaf one.

Anyway, I've known of Chris for several years now, the first picture I saw of him I thought it was David Tennant jumping on the celebrity blues band wagon. However, the young guy is worth checking out, as is this debut platter,  a mix of a couple of originals and several "live" standards. In an ever more populated pool of emerging young talent, Chris has a more loose jazz style that makes the standards like Crossroads and Dimples fresher. Vocally, not a big voice, somewhere between Ben Poole and John Mayer, but expressive.


Jeremiah Johnson - Heavens To Betsy  (2020)

What can you say? An opening one-two that hits like the worst weather forecast on a spring day (White Lightning & Tornado) And then balances the power out with ballads like Long Way Home & Ecstasy and the country flavoured Leo Stone and then leaves with the jumpin' Preacher's Daughter.

This is a benchmark setting album; it's not out to change the world or re-invent the wheel, but everything Jeremiah and band do on this album is done to perfection; it's crisp, tight, powerful, catchy: just so good. Teat yourselves; and the neighbours.

BarbieD... thanks for the Alter Bridge heads up. I haven't listened to them in a long time.

My favorite version of In The Air Tonight. Nice guitar work in the beginning. Love the strong drum finish at the end. Phil and Chester Thompson... two of my favorite drummers.

I have to vouch for Beau Bowen's exceptional new record as one of the more interesting I've come across in years.  Every listen brings craftsmanship beyond this kid's years.  Really, really good and an early top 5 album for this funky 2020.

Silverthorne - Tear The Sky Wide Open (2020)

Well, maybe the names of the journeyman performers doesn't quite make this a "supergroup" project in the true sense, but by jingo what a glorious hard rockin' sound they make. Pete Shoulder's Chris Cornell style howl makes him the best voice from my corner of the world for ages (and that's a corner that bred Rodgers & Coverdale), and he's no slouch on a Les Paul either. And the powerhouse engine room of Brian Tichy and Daniel Spree means this 5-tracker is going to blow some rooves off.

Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes - What Kinda Music  (2020)

Not as "innocent" as Tom's debut album, Geography; combining with the percussive inventiveness of Yussef, this is an album of sophisticated Jazz Fusion, but rather than the 1970's collision with Rock, this is more contemporary House/Ambiance. A very different beast, but a good beast.

Fully agree with your take on the new album.  Definitely Jazz Fusion, but very modern compared to the 70's eruption.  I almost think Yussef dominates the sound on this and the charm of Geography is missing this time around.
