Kelley Stoltz – Cut Me Baby


“San Francisco DIY pop king Kelley Stoltz is a very prolific artist though his releases tend to come in spurts. (His last album was 2013’s Double Exposure.) Get ready for Stoltz overload, as he’ll have not one, not two, but three new records out this fall.

His love of Echo & the Bunnymen and The Fall rears its head on In Triangle Time which features more synthesizers than usual and will be released by Castle Face on November 6. You can check out opening track “Cut Me Baby,” which owes a little to Bowie’s Eno records…”Source

ELO – Roll Over Beethoven


“The new line-up performed at the 1972 Reading Festival. Barcus Berry instrument pick-ups, now sported by the band’s string trio, allowed them to have proper amplification on stage for their instruments, which had previously been all but drowned out by all the sound of the electrified instruments. The band released their second album, ELO 2 in 1973, which produced their second UK top 10 and their first US chart single, an elaborate version of the Chuck Berry classic “Roll Over Beethoven”Wiki

Electric Light Orchestra – Roll Over Beethoven (Original Promo) 1973

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers – Dwight Yoakam


“Sometimes it takes a bad seed to make good country music. That’s just the way it is. Just how bad Sarah Shook is probably depends on your perspective, but she was born into a good Christian home and raised in a wholesome manner that taught her to do everything in virtually the exact opposite way she eventually did it. Home schooled and only exposed to worship music at an early age, Sarah rebelled when she got the chance and her first band was named “Sarah Shook & The Devil.” Sorry mom and dad, but there was something inside Sarah that had to come out, and though this isn’t devil music by any stretch, it’s certainly not scriptures.”
