It looks like either Spotify and WordPress aren’t cooperating today or something else is going wrong. I’ll keep trying to get the playlist to embed properly and maybe at some point it will work. Until then I’ve made the link clickable if you want to follow it.
“The Other Day” – The Cry.
This is exactly what you think of when you think of music from San Diego, right? A great throwback to the first and second waves of British punk.
“Evergreen” – Wye Oak.
Released as an Adult Swim Single earlier this year, the band just made this available on Spotify this week. There’s not much they do wrong. It’s a shame they don’t record more often.
“Georgia” – Calhoun.
This comes from the 2017 album Football Night in America which seemed appropriate since high school football starts tonight in Indiana. Most of us are going to M’s first game as a CHS student; C is going to with classmates to watch CHS’ biggest rival play (Wearing a CHS shirt. I hope she doesn’t get harassed too much). Fall is almost here…
“Motorways (Erase It)” – Dhani Harrison.
I don’t know why, but I was surprised at both the sound of this track and how much I liked it. I guess I expected George Harrison’s son to have a more traditional sound.
“Summer Breeze” – The Isley Brothers.
One of my guilty pleasures of the summer has been SiriusXM’s Yacht Rock Radio station. It tends to be hit-and-miss whether I like the songs when I pass by. But when they are good, they are absolute jams. I’ve heard Seals & Croft’s 1972 hit “Summer Breeze” quite a few times over the past couple months. This week on The Groove, Sirius’ old school R&B station, I heard this Isley Brothers cover, which is absolutely magnificent.
