Friday (Somewhat) Random Ten

For this week, decided to take a cue, two weeks late, from Tom at If I Ran the Zoo, and so here's a random ten only from 2009 adds, just over 900 in number (which means it can be music from pre-2009, of course):

Richard Thompson "Sunset Song" 2008-10-04 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival Golden Gate Park San Francisco
Peter Blegvad "Powers in the Air" The Naked Shakespeare
Nickel Creek "Best of Luck" Paste Magazine Sampler 17
Los Fakires "Mira El Bodeguero" Mi Casa Su Casa
The Pipettes "Guess Who Ran Off with the Milkman?" Your Kisses Are Wasted on Me ep
Moonlight Towers "I Sleep Alone" Paste Magazine Sampler 19
The Pipettes "A Winter's Sky" We Are the Pipettes
A.C. Newman "Take on Me" Sweetheart
Cotton Jones "I Am the Changer" Paranoid Cocoon
Shannon McArdle "Summer of the Whore" Summer of the Whore

Ida Maria "Keep Me Warm" Keep Me Warm

"Say someone stole a line from Ezra Pound/ Whose to say it hadn't lay their for centuries/ waiting to be found." That's very true, I've found, as there aren't too many "pop" lines that might earn the Hugh Kenner seal of approval. And yes, I did finally add all those Paste Mag cds I had for a few years. And yes, that is A.C. Newman doing a-ha. Damn well.

I already did my new (to me) music list over at Tom's a couple weeks back, so here's my regular Random 10+1, with corrected apostrophe:

1. Frank's Wild Years - Tom Waits
2. Blues In G - Mance Lipscomb
3. Kangaroo - David Gray
4. Take The “A” Train - Duke Ellington
5. Ana Ng - They Might Be Giants

7. Invisible Man - The Breeders
8. It Takes More (Bloodshy Main Mix) - Ms. Dynamite
9. Flying - The Faces
10. The Weight - Aretha Franklin

I'll probably miss the next couple weeks' worth, as I'm going out of town for a while. Have fun, George and George's fans.

Got to listen to the Cotton Jones while on one of the very much country roads in the Santa Ynez Valley--closest you can get to the Old West (even saw guys on horses herding cattle--does that make them cowboys?)--the other day. It made much much sense then.

Glad you guys are digging the CJ. I think they're groovy! We saw them in DC last week. Excellent show, lots of improvising and new stuff. And the woman singer is smokin' (I overheard somebody say that). Spoke to the lead guitarist afterwards and he said they're releasing another album end of the yearish.

WV: "hymona." No comment.
