I just got Drive By Truckers "The Dirty South"....

sort of whiskeytown-ish (from the rockier part of their catalogue, with overtones of Lynrd Skynrd, and some great lyrics.

Kick ass rock n roll with a country-ish tinge.





Who else has listened to something cool lately they would like to share?

I've recently discovered Kora. Actually off a 'Roots Compliation' album that I was listening to at ROOL GROOVIE one day, but I also like their EP. Very laid back and mellow, but good tunes.

Johnny Cash
American Recordings 4: When the man comes around
Great album of cash songs and covers stripped down to the bare essentials (including Hurt - the best version of this song that has or will ever be recorded).

Soulwax
Any minute now
Belgian indie rock. These are the guys behind 'Too Many DJ's', their third album and possibly the best yet.

.American 4 is brilliant.

Last months* Mojo had Johnny on the cover, and came with a CD of cash covers which was mostly pretty good..... Steve Earle doing "John Wesley Hardin", and a reggae version of Ring of Fire which works really well.

I just picked up the managers - special.
NZ music, a ska/reggae mix, great summer music.
Never really listened to ska before, but this is quite classy.

if you like that ska, then you might like.......the early 60's jamaican ska. I have a lot of V/A comps but Toots & the Maytals (theres a 20 classic hits which is good and has liner notes) Desmond Dekker, Skatalites etc. Lee Perry, Joe Gibbs etc etc... labels are Trojan, Island etc....

you can move from there into the 70's british ska and 2 Tone stuff: Specials, Selecter, the Beat (NOT Madness or UB40) as well.

it started for me with the Clash doing "Police and Theives" and "Pressure Drop" both of which are covers: one is by Junior Murvin (the original version is on the Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels soundtrack album BTW) and Toots respectively.

respec' mon !

Yardbirds double CD from Warehouse for 6.99

It is so cool, one the best 60's R n B bands (and the predecesor of Led Zep...) plus Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck were lead guitarists art one stage.
