Here is a song to improve summer road trips from my top secret collection of ‘Best Driving Songs.’ It’s archetypal Krautrock from Neu!, who practices understated idyllic German psychedelia. My prescription: play this song while driving home with the windows open after a long day at the beach, lake, river, etc. Enjoy.
Well my brothers and sisters, the time has come again to dig for obscure summer jams. Summer is a sacred time, a holy time which demands digging for jams of the highest quality and the purest purity. Here is an unadulterated one that comes all the way from 1977 Santa Monica: Steely Dan’s “Josie”. It’s a beautifully produced 70s hodgepodge of styles and comes from a musical era very different from our own. Enjoy!
Last week, the music world lost an original. Not too many people can say they pioneered a distinct genre, a genre that then went on to transform popular music and spawn hundreds of subgenres…Frankie Knuckles can say that. Here are a bunch of great tributes to Mr. Knuckles published this past week, they are all worth checking out. Here is a one of Frankie’s best known track which you’ll most likely recognize as as the source of the main sample from Animal Collective’s “My Girls”. Enjoy.
Billy and Bobby Alessi are two Italian brothers from Long Island. They were also one-hit wonders with their 1977 hit, “Oh Lori”. The track didn’t age well but “Seabird”, also from 1977, somehow sounds complete up to date. It’s just two brothers singing a tender ballad about life, not much else to say. Enjoy this long forgotten b-side.
