    • Bloom Forever
      Few records have stayed with me in the way that S.C.U.M's first and only LP, Again Into Eyes, has.

    • Heartbreaker: Ryan Adams On His Desolate Debut May 5, 2016
      “It was a crazy time for me,” he tells Clash...It would be remiss of me not to point out at the beginning of this feature that ‘Heartbreaker’, the debut solo outing from Ryan Adams, is in my list of top ten favourite albums of all time - and has been, since it was released in September 2000.

The Falcons Nest My Five: Jeff R.

Posted by falconi5 on April 26, 2012

The “My Five” series is a man on the street kind of interview where at a random time in a random place we ask someone what their five favorite songs are.

Jeff R. – Late 20…ish

We ran in to Jeff at Sheakespears a local blues joint in my neighborhood blues bar. Who knew that Willie S. was a blues fan.  I am convinced that Jeff is an alien.  He was by far the youngest person in the bar and by far the coolest person there as well.  His musical choices were old school and I really liked the guy. An old school soul in a contemprary form, the future is in good hands.  Here are his top five songs.

Jamie Cullum – The Wind Cries Mary

Norah Jones – Come Away With Me

REO Speedwagon – Golden Country

Yes – Roundabout

John Cleary – Portstreet Blues
