Words about music (463): Jarvis Cocker

TThere's the famous thing that the A&R man from the record company is supposed to do: He's supposed to come into the studio and listen to the songs you've been recording and then say, 'Guys, I don't hear any singles.' And then everybody falls into a terrible depression because you have to write one.

Kat Riggins: In The Boys' Club

When in need of good old juke joint blues with a soul seasoning Kat Riggins is there to cover all the bases and then some. Her new album In The Boys' Club is a bold statement of a powerful artist who can outsing most of the competition and put a lid on all the doubters, who can't handle the sight of a woman hitting the stage.

She doesn't beat around the bush and leads her band through her songs with bravado. In The Boys' Club is tight but loose, whether she keep it simple in Troubles Away (nice touch to make it sound like a well-worn 7") of over the moon in Second to None. She shares the spotlights with Albert Castiglia in the rousing Kitty Won't Scratch<, who also throws in a bunch of choice guitar licks. This is an album for blues lovers of all ages.

Town of Saints: Up In Smoke

Dutch/Finnish folk band Town of Saints are back with a new single, Up In Smoke, an upbeat singalong with a dark message. Fans of The Levellers will love it.

'Up In Smoke’ is a rather dark contemplation, describing the utter futility of our existence in a not too subtle way. The tune of the eternal defeatist, a drunk chorus conducted by a harbinger of doom… Perhaps one way to cope with the ‘end of the world’ is to drop everything you are doing, get wasted and never look back again. This is all in jest, of course and terribly exaggerated. Although...

It's their first new material since the release of their No Place Like This album.
