When you’re playing in band, every once in a while you have one those nights where the planets just align or something and the songs you play end up a step beyond where you thought they would ever go. Those are the nights you remember the most. Here’s a song from one of those nights, a blistering, set closing cover of Tom Waits Jockey Full Of Bourbon. Rock on.

Iron And Wine : Boy With A Coin

I’ll admit I’m somehwat chasing the bus on this one, as the new Iron and Wine album has been out for a couple months now yet somehow I managed to avoid hearing any of it until this past weekend. The dozen songs on The Shepherd’s Dog are a fantastic blend of warm hypnotic percussion meshed with softly picked guitars and keyboards, all strung together masterfully by Sam Beam’s vocals. Boy With A Coin is the first single from the album and I haven’t been able to get it off repeat the past few days. The handclaps woven into the percussion give it such a spiritual mesmerizing feel that I just can’t get enough of.

In honor of going to see Bob Mould play a sold out solo show tonight at John & Peter’s in New Hope PA, a venue approximately the size of a living room, here’s one of my all time favorite Bob Mould solo songs. It’s only available on a compilation entitled No Alternative which was released 14 years ago this week. It was one of a series of albums released by The Red Hot Organization to help fun AIDS awareness groups. Bob also plays a show tomorrow night at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia which will include a screening of his new live DVD, Circle Of Friends.
