Your Morning Rock/New Music Tuesday – February 19th, 2008 Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, New Music Tuesday, Your Morning Rock.

Good news, Flappy! You get some solid new releases this week!

Woooooo Mike Doughty! Hit the jump for your weekly rundown…
Mike Doughty – Golden Delicious

The former Soul Coughing front man issues his fourth (if you count Skittish and Rockity Roll as full length…) solo album this week. I anticipate this becoming the soundtrack to my flight out west on Wednesday night, even if the lead single (“27 Jennifers” – as seen before the jump) has been around on a previous album. I’m rarely a fan of rehashing a song, but I will let it slide…this time.

Allison Moorer – Mockingbird

Want to touch the hiney. Seriously though, Steve Earle’s wife is a very talented singer and is a sweetheart of the alt-country set. The great Buddy Miller is the producer here as Moorer covers songs from Joni Mitchell, June Carter, Gillian Welch, and her sister Shelby Lynne. This should make for a very nice listen.

Gary Louris – Vagabonds

The Jayhawk and Golden Smog-er finally releases an album to call his own. Expect jangly guitars and big, harmonic choruses. In other words, it could very well be everything I love and more. Also, both Susanna Hoffs and Jenny Lewis contribute harmony vocals on a track. The sound of indie boys swooning is what you just heard.

Ray Davies – Working Man’s Cafe

It appears to be famous band front man solo project day. I enjoy The Kinks and thought Davies most recent solo effort, Other People’s Lives, was pretty darn good. It’s a shame that Davies waited until he was 60 to start cranking out solo albums.

The Mountain Goats – Heretic Pride

I’m not really a fan, but I’m willing to bet some of you are.

American Music Club – The Golden Age

The reunion delivers a second album, who would have thunk it?

Kidz Bop – Vol 13

That’s right – number 13!!!! The end is near! Run for your shelters!!

And that’s what the week shall bring – not bad, huh? Let’s talk about what I missed (I’ve got two in mind that someone is bound to mention…) and what you’re going to pick up.

I call my three boys Slappy, Flappy and Scatman, so your use of Flappy made me laugh. WOO Mike Doughty! J

2. Camp Tiger Claw - Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Best New Tuesday in awhile. Doughty, Mountain Goats (!!!), and finally a national release for Bon Iver’s “For Emma, Forever Ago” on Jagjaguar.

Go getcha some new tunes.

3. Jerkwheat - Tuesday, February 19, 2008

I’m about ready to pimp slap Best Buy – no copies of Doughty to be found. And no Moorer or Louris either. It appears to be an iTunes frenzy for me tonight.

This is why I mourned the loss of Tower Records over here.

4. Camp Tiger Claw - Tuesday, February 19, 2008

When you do pick up the Louris record I’m interested to hear your impressions of it.

5. Rockabye - Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Cough, cough–1520 Sedgwick–cough, cough.

6. DougOLis - Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Looks like I’m using up all those iTunes Gift Cards I got for Christmas this week.

7. DougOLis - Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Bell X1 has a new album out in the States. It’s been available in Ireland and the rest of Europe for a long time but this is the first of it showing up here. Pretty solid Indie music.
