Good Cover Version: Nick Waterhouse does Sade

Good Cover Version: Nick Waterhouse does Sade

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

Somehow, “Smooth Operator” is 32 years old. To celebrate that, Nick Waterhouse covered Sade’s classic piece of smoothness, adding a throwback jazz club daddy-o style. With his inner Chet Baker coming through, Waterhouse takes Sade’s 80s gem and takes it even further back. And in my humble opinion, it works ...

An Artfully Orchestrated, Intensely Noir New Album and a Joe’s Pub Show from Esteemed Chamber Pop Band the Old Ceremony

Source: New York Music Daily

Back in the early zeros, when songwriter Django Haskins was a familiar presence playing around the Lower East Side of New York, it’s not likely that he drew a lot of Leonard Cohen comparisons. But artists grow, and as the years went on Haskins’ work took on a welcome gravitas, culminating when he formed chamber pop band the Old Ceremony in 2004. For those who might not get the reference, the band name is a shout-out to Cohen’s cult classic album New Skin for the Old Ceremony. The group are currently on tour for their excellent new album, Sprinter – ...

The 100 Best Songs of 2014

Source: New York Music Daily

If you count youtube clips, how many songs were “released” in 2014? Five million? Ten million? Considering the vast amount of material that’s out there, you can’t consider this page to be gospel any more than you can any other blog’s best-of-2014 list.

But it is a seriously good playlist. At first it seemed like a good idea to simply pull all of these songs into a Spotify playlist and call it a night, but that didn’t work since a lot – perhaps the majority – of the artists here aren’t on Spotify. But you can follow the links on this page ...

The Best New York Concerts of 2014

Source: New York Music Daily

Of all the year-end lists here, including the best albums and best songs of 2014 lists, this one is the most individual, and the most fun to put together. But as amazing a year for live music as it was, there were twice as many enticing shows that this blog never had the chance to cover as there are on this list. It’s called having a life – or trying to, in between concerts, anyway.

So consider this an informed survey rather than anything definitive, and ultimately, a reason for guarded optimism. Much as gentrification destroys the arts like Walmart ...

The Allah-Las Brighten Their Surreal, Catchy Psychedelic Pop – Just a Little

Source: New York Music Daily

The Allah-Las reaffirm the reality that if you tour good music coast to coast, larger and larger crowds will come out to see it. Watching them grow from small club band to solid large-venue attraction has been one of the more satisfying success stories among rock bands over the last couple of years. Their new second album, Worship the Sun, was produced by retro music maven Nick Waterhouse and is streaming at bandcamp.

The opening track, De Vida Voz continues the catchy, eerie, retro 60s psych-folk-rock vibe that filtered through their brilliant 2012 debut album: “Voices carry through the canyon,” ...

A Dark Night of Soul at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar

Source: New York Music Daily

Friday night at the Brookyn Night Bazaar, singer/guitarist Nick Waterhouse didn’t start a song in a major key until his long, menacingly pulsing set was almost over. And at that point, with a laid-back, warmly sunny retro soul groove, he lost the crowd. Apparently they liked his dark, minor-key stuff better, which makes sense considering how much there was of it and well he did it. It was almost funny watching guest Paula Henderson – ordinarily one of the world’s most colorful baritone saxophonists – hanging out way down in the smoky lows, inscrutable behind her red shades, decked out in a ...

Playlist: Swollen Fox Radio, 03.05.14

The RootsThe week of March 10th is surprisingly sparse in its solid live music options. Beyond visits from Ellie Goulding, Com Truise, and Marissa Nadler, there isn’t much. (Commonwealth Choir will be at Milkboy on the 15th and would certainly be included on this playlist if they were on Spotify.)

So with such little in the immediate future to look forward to, we turn to the shows that were most recently announced for inspiration. The highlight of the week’s announcements was the lineup announcement for the 7th Annual Roots Picnic, which is topped by The Roots (duh), Snoop Dogg (backed by ...

Upper Darby art-punk outfit mewithoutYou appears at Union Transfer tonight with post-hardcore group Touche Amore. mewithoutYou released their latest album, Ten Stories, in May of 2012. The 11-song album combines lead singer Aaron Weiss’ famously creative puns and plays on lyricism to construct a story plot as complicated as the guitar riffs and other instrumentation that make up the tunes. The songs tells the survival tales of a fox, elephant, bear and onion boy (hint: bonus track) – or more specifically, the circus animals and acts involved in a fictional train crash in 1878. Hear ...

St Paul and the Broken BonesHailing from Birmingham, Alabama, St. Paul & the Broken Bones will bring their Muscle Shoals-inspired soul music to Johnny Brenda’s later next month. Their debut album, Half the City, was released yesterday, channeling the usual legends (Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, etc.) and fitting well with others currently atop the soul revival train (Alabama Shakes, Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones). And since I can’t get enough of these new soul artists, you’ll find St. Paul & the Broken Bones opening up this week’s edition of Swollen Fox Radio.

Half the City is one in a handful of solid new recordings released ...
