Into The Black (Neil Young Cover)
Kill For Love
a note about this track

"What started as an Italo-disco renaissance has now become a new-wave-robo-futuristic revamp. This double album is a behemoth, complete with epic, lonely instrumentals and a running theme that could be the soundtrack to a modern day film noir. Couple that with one of the best Neil Young covers ever as an opener and you have something truly special." -Another Dying Artform

Nick Waterhouse

Say I Wanna Know
Time's All Gone 2012 via Innovative Leisure
a note about this track

"Waterhouse writes bummed and bitter three-minute songs with horn stabs and maracas drenched in period aesthetics. Waterhouse is 25, a big music geek, and has been building an identity from an idealized past he spent his high school years exploring by way of vinyl stacking." -Washington City Paper

Patti Smith

Fuji-san
Banga 2012 via Columbia
a note about this track

"Banga is the 65-year-old's 11th album, one of the most satisfying of her latterday career. A performance poet before she ever got a band together, Smith's electrified presence and aggressive, incantatory style – part Dylan, part Jersey girl – have always aspired to a frequency that you might call sacred, if that word hadn't been sullied by the so-called new age." -Kitty Empire, The Observer
