Re: What song are you listening to right now?

I really like this group from NY state. Bruce is on the keyboards with Aaron Lieberman on guitar and vocals. Hmmm, I just noticed they have no bass player ala The Doors

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

Couple of new listens to report....

For All Our Days That Tear The Heart - Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler (2022)
Can't really pigeon-hole this into a genre, but if I had to, then it would lean toward Folk. Bernard Butler, for me is the best guitar to come from "Brit-pop", being the sonic architect behind the band Suede, and then the powerful Soul collaborations with singer David McAlmont. This time, he's hitched his trailer to a different style with singer/actress Jessie Buckley who is possessed of a voice somewhere between kd lang and Sandy Denny. Combined with Butler's masterfully subdued playing & arrangements, the result is nuanced and sophisticated.

Porcupine Tree - Closure/Continuation (2022)
I never really got into Porcupine Tree while they were current, my head was in a totally different space, however I was turned on to Steven Wilson's solo work, which I really enjoy. That said, his last solo effort was a bit disappointing, so I was a little dubious on getting this. As it turns out, it's a gem of an album, Wilson is back on form and working well with former compatriots. The sound is powerful and quirky; intelligent songwriting with musical depth that only the best bands of the highest calibre can achieve.

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

I just found these guys yesterday, but they ain't newbies by any means. You will remember some of them as Linda Ronstadt's old backing band. It brings back a lot of memories from the late 60s and 70s. Here they cover Don Henley's Dirty Laundry with sort of a country feel to it, from Don's Building the Perfect Beast. What an album that was

Paolo Nutini - Last Night In The Bittersweet (2022)

Yes, it really was 2014 when we last heard from Paolo with the crunching Caustic Love album that surprised a lot for daring to bypass the quirky hit Pencil Full of Lead. Well, brace yourselves, because almost 8 years down the line and Paolo has dropped a 16 track, 72 minute mini-epic.  (or double album for vinyl junkies) and it's well, it's awesome in it's length, boldness and execution. After the brooding Krautrock of opener Afterneath tere are 2 immediate ear-fillers, Through The Echoes and Lose It, which rocks;  then there a "wtf" moment as the bass Everywherebuilds until it sounds sound like he's put words over Albatross... Petrified In Love does sound a little like a lesser Quo track; Abigail is a tender country ballad.

And that's the trick of this album, it chops and changes in styles, Nutini really uses his voice, at one moment giving us Ben E King or Otis Redding and then rasping like Nazareth's Dan McCaffery. Yes it sprawls and the direction changes as quickly as a greased cat, once ot twice, he touches back to "Ed Sheeran" type singer/songwriter, but sit down, grab a brew [or a dram] and stay with it; somewhere, there's something bound to please; and the rest may just surprise you, enough to get that other damn song out your head...
