Video of the Day: Bishop Allen – Start Again

Posted by falconi5 on August 26, 2014

bishop“Start Again” is the first single from the album Lights Out from Indie Popsters Bishop Allen. The sound is bright and sunny, but just below the surface the lyrics set a deeper tone to create a sort of sad party record tone.  Interesting stuff.

Song of the Day: P.F. Sloan – Eve of Destruction

Posted by falconi5 on August 24, 2014

pfIt is interesting how this song never stops being relevant.  This version, slightly less anthemic than the original, features Buddy Miller and Frank Black on guest vocals. P.F. Sloan wrote this, but he didn’t even write P.F. Sloan, Jimmy Webb did.

The Falcon’s Nest Spotify Playlist (August 23, 2014)

Posted by falconi5 on August 23, 2014

playlistsThe musical muse works in mysterious ways, and today she seems to be pulling in many directions for the Falcon’s Nest Playlist of the week. It opens up with a triple shot straight ahead Mojo Rock with “Roadrunnner”, the Joan Jett version, a much more loose and spontaneous rendition, leading things off, followed by an old school version of “Diddy Wah Diddy” by The Remains, garage rockers extraordinaire, with Friday on My Mind as a chaser, you can never go wrong playing this one.

Patti Smith can be an acquired taste, but there can be no denying she is one heck of a songwriter, and on “Dancing Barefoot” she really shows her wares. “Plastic Fantastic Lover” is perhaps the best song about a marital aid, and “Walk Like a Man” cranks things up Ruen Brothers style with their own electric blend of retro-garage Rock & Roll.

“I’m Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail” is from the recent Norah Jones Billy Joe collaboration and makes the list on the song title alone, “Penthouse Pauper” is a deeper cut that simply wails from Bayou Country courtesy of Creedence Clearwater Revival, and the Modern Lovers represent with “Old World” a Kinksian sort of song that is included on their debut album, a record that should be a must hear for any music lover.

The one two punch of “Castanets” by Alejandro Escovedo and “Carmelita” from Warren Zevon is interesting in that they both are supremely underrated as artists, and are also excellent band leaders. For extra credit, try to locate the Linda Ronstadt version of “Carmelita,” your ears will be forever in your debt.

The Them version of  “Nobody Loves You When You’re Down and Out” takes some artistic license on the Bobby Womack classic, but is epic in its own right, and “You Set the Scene” is a deeper cut from Forever Changes with a Donovan sort of vibe. Finishing things off with the organ-licious “Hey Joe” from Deep Purples maiden voyage Shades of Deep Purple” just seemed like the right thing to do.
