new music playlist february 2023


beautiful, soft, sweet.
Sweet Dreams (feat. Holly Henry)
Cool cover of the old classic, who am I to disagree?
Do Whatcha Wanna
Rebirth Brass Band
One of Two versions of this songs I grabbed this month as we played it for New Orleans

Seven Nation Army
Fercho Triyei
I just collect these covers! This is like the second most abrasive.
This Beat Is Military
K-9 Posse
Charlie Murphy's rap group. Kind of like a cheesy attempt to make Public Enemy more commercial.
Lean on Me
Club Nouveau
Was thinking this would be a good song for my band to play, but maybe a version that's less "We Be Jammin'" as this one.

With Arms Outstretched
Rilo Kiley
Very sweet early 2000s chick singer vibe.
See Me
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
My friend Duane noticed it uses some odd tuning and half-step kind of stuff. I keep seeing this on a very odd "Come And See Him" tumblr video.
Bangers & Mash Theme Song
Chas & Dave
Intro theme to a UK cartoon, fun "rockey" ("pub singalong, music-hall humour, boogie-woogie piano and pre-Beatles rock 'n' roll") goof.

I Wanna Know
Becca Hannah
Becca played this song to open a comedy show Melissa and I went to... I like her acoustic version much more than her studio version.

Praise You (From the Series "Derry Girls")
Jordyn Shellhart
Always such a sucker for "cover of a pop song but slow and female vocal'd"

The Cranberries
Another from "Derry Girls" -- the Cranberries had such a distinctive beautiful sound.

Good Rockin' Daddy
Etta James
Sexy r+b rocker of a song.

Do Whatcha Wanna, Pt. 2
Rebirth Brass Band
Grabbed this version because I think it's closest to what my band is trying to learn..

via tumblr, conceptually I love this:
