January 22, 2015
Dig Nina’s deep groove on this dusty gospel cut.
Somewhere between Sam Cooke and Aaron NeVille. You’ll hear the Aaron Neville
January 21, 2015
This cut speaks for itself.
January 19, 2015
A baritone stunner about the man today is for.
January 17, 2015
When I listen to a song like this I can’t help but hear early Palace Music and I feel like I should’ve heard this years ago when Will Oldham pretty much ruled my musical tastes. Maybe if I would’ve heard it then I would have more of a connection with rocksteady and Caribbean music but it’s important to remember music tastes evolve naturally and better late than never.

I’m willing to bet she has a much more interesting life than John, Paul, George or Ringo. Definitely Ringo.
January 15, 2015
A slow groove from the New Orleans legend.
January 14, 2015
It wasn’t until I heard this gem on WFMU that I realized it was the b-side to “It’s All Over,” (one of my favor soul songs) and sitting unspun in my collection for nearly three years. I then lost my mind.
January 13, 2015
Reminded how killer this groove is while I was checking out the trailer to the new Noah Baumbach film. Acquirable in every dollar bin ever.
January 9, 2015
An upbeat country fried cut by way of England.
January 8, 2015
More dreamy folk from this Drag City reissue.
January 7, 2015
Drag City never fails. Especially when it comes to folk. Here is a timeless song from Baird’s 2007 release.
Steve Young covering Townes, all the while channeling deep modes of operatic twang. Beautiful.
January 6, 2015
Nobody who writes a song this groovy should be so damn lonely.
January 2, 2015
Written by Otis but perfected by Arthur Conley. Here’s Otis’ version, which is almost as powerful. Arthur’s version was covered last year here.
January 1, 2015
The perfect kickstart to 2015.
December 31, 2014
Dig on some Texas country to close out 2014. Check the original version I posted earlier this year here.
December 30, 2014
More deep soul, straight outta Muscle Schoals.
December 29, 2014
Some deep soul to kick off the week.
December 25, 2014
Anyone who follows this blog probably saw this coming from a mile away.
December 24, 2014
Terrific cover of a grim Christmas song. Check out the original in the December mix.
Ring in Christmas in a soulful way.
December 23, 2014
This is what I like to call a “Cold Weather Song.”
December 19, 2014
Winter isn’t so hard down here in Louisiana. But this is apropos nonetheless.
December 18, 2014
Great bootcut anthem with mellow tones and rusted edges.
December 17, 2014
Sandy and Fairport will never outstay their welcome in my list here.
December 16, 2014
A beautiful, organ-soaked, multi-tonal number from Judee.
December 15, 2014
Currently obsessed with the Honeybus original but was excited I had this.
December 11, 2014
Great organ-drenched, jangly tune to follow up the Link Wray.
December 10, 2014
Both were recorded in 1965 so I’m not sure which came first but this and The Beatles’ “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” bear a striking resemblance. At least the opening does.
December 9, 2014
Nothing but comfort comes from this song.
December 8, 2014
Another gem from the Korean Rock Goddess. Check her out on the November Mix.
December 5, 2014
Introduced to this folk gem by Dylan’s cover from the recent bootleg series.
December 4, 2014
Nothing like a nice frosty folk song for your December day.
December 3, 2014
Start to freakin’ finish.
A nice French song that always puts me in a good mood.
December 2, 2014
Sure, a small part of me is including this in December because “Christmas” is in the title, but a much larger part of me is including it because the winter of 2011 is when I found this record and grew obsessed with it. Out of all the records I have, this one gives me the most nostalgic wintry feelings.
