Song of the Week: “NY Money” by White Denim

by Douglas Cowie on 22 February 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “NY Money” by White Denim:

White Denim played one of the most fun sets, in a festival full of fun sets, at The End of the Road Festival last summer. I’m going to see them again at the Roundhouse tonight.

Song of the Week: “Blood on the Saddle” by Tex Ritter

by Douglas Cowie on 15 February 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Blood on the Saddle” by Tex Ritter:

I went for a walk in the snowy countryside with my friend Fabian the other weekend. Fabian knows more about music than most people, and at some point he asked me if I knew this song. When I said I didn’t he started singing it, and then told me Tex Ritter’s version was particularly good. As you can hear, it is (particularly good).

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Tomorrow Is the Question” by Julian Lage:

I heard Julian Lage’s version of a Roy Orbison song on my friends’ radio show on Monday night. Tuesday night I discovered, thanks to an advertisement in the men’s room at Jazz Cafe, that Julian Lage is playing in London at the end of March. Wednesday morning I bought tickets. I love the little half-quotation of “Straight, No Chaser” I hear near the start of this tune.
