B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 25 DEC. 2010


Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten has emerged as a "cut above" the vast sea of singer/songwriters. With her sophomore release, epic, Van Etten delivers an excellent folk/pop record, filled with poignant lyrics, beautifully executed and arranged. epic definitely would have made my "Top 10" had I had discovered this late 2010 release earlier. My apologies, Sharon...a terrific album.

Captain Beefheart, 1941-2010


Don Van Vliet, better known as Captain Beefheart, was an uncompromising artist and musical pioneer, whose influence on contemporary music and musicians has been enormous. The list includes: Tom Waits, Deerhoof, Pavement, Marc Ribot, Nels Cline, Gang of Four, Beck, Jack White, John Zorn and The Minutemen, to name a few. In a recent LA Times obituary, Tom Waits succinctly (and poetically) expressed his lament of Van Vliet's death (due to complications from MS):

"He was like the scout on a wagon train," Waits wrote in an e-mail Friday. "He was the one who goes ahead and shows the way. He was a demanding bandleader, a transcendental composer (with emphasis on the dental), up there with Ornette [Coleman], Sun Ra and Miles [Davis]. He drew in the air with a burnt stick. He described the indescribable. He's an underground stream and a big yellow blimp.

"I will miss talking to him on the phone. We would describe what we saw out of our windows. He was a rememberer. He was the only one who thought to bring matches. He's the alpha and the omega. The high water mark. He's gone and he won't be back."


He will be missed, though his music still stands as a force.

B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 18 DEC. 2010


Recently unearthed, The Psychedelic Aliens was a great funk band from Ghana, beginning from 1968. Their only known surviving recordings (only three '45 singles plus B-sides) have been put together by Academy Records, entitled Psycho African Beat. Six killer cuts of a hybrid of African and US soul/funk. Amazing.

St. Louis native, Ann Peebles carved her soul style, with a deep funk groove, in Memphis, signed to Willie Mitchell's Hi Records. On her 1971 release, Part Time Love (which her self-penned song, "I'll Get Along," is featured), Peebles' soul funk is backed by the legendary Hi house band, including the Hodges brothers. Peebles still remains a greatly overlooked Memphis soul great.

Steve Wynn & The Miracle 3 gears for a upcoming tour and new release, Northern Aggression, playing a recent NYC gig at the Living Room (in the Lower East Side). Northern Aggression is an excellent rock record, carrying that edge that propelled 2003's fierce Static Transmission. Longtime Miracle 3 (and Baseball Project) drummer Linda Pitmon (former Zuzu's Petals founding member) is again fantastic on this new record. Probably one of the most underrated drummers in rock music today. No BS.

Domino has just released an excellent 6-CD comprehensive box set entitled Coals to Newcastle, including a DVD.
