    • Stuff Like That There
      For years, decades even, Yo La Tengo have inhabited the role of the indie mainstay; "business as usual" could describe any of their albums since the mid-aughts at least. That makes Yo La Tengo sound like a band who sticks to one successful sound, however, which couldn't be further from the truth.

    • Premiere: The Funs - 'Cross Kisser' September 4, 2015
      Dirty, rotten scoundrels...The Funs come from the nowheresville, USA, a cute couple with a deliciously evil sound.

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
