A very Good Friday and Happy Easter weekend to you all.

“Everybody Here Hates You” – Courtney Barnett. This song is a grower. I was just thrilled CB had put out a couple songs for Record Store Day. But as I’ve listened to this more and more, it has gotten into my head and I really like it.

“Caves” – Gregory Alan Isakov. Isakov’s albums are often tough for me to listen to because they are so spare and folksy. But there is always a song or two that he adds just a little growl to, and those songs are the ones that stick with me. This is my favorite off of his latest album.

“Am I Doing It Right?” – Alex Lahey. The latest on my “can’t wait for this album to come out” list. We’ll find out if it is worth the wait on May 17.

“Let’s Get It On” – Marvin Gaye. Once again stealing from the The Number Ones series at Stereogum. Partially because this is a goddam classic. Partially because this entry was one of Tom Breihan’s best.

“Hard to Believe” – Charly Bliss. Not quite power pop, not quite ‘90s retro, Charly Bliss falls between the sub-genre cracks to produce timeless, thoroughly enjoyable music that makes you want to bounce up-and-down.
