The sun's out, I've got a cold drink, my brain is slowing down, and I'm looking for tunes to match. These will do.
David Byrne: What A Day That Was. From The Catherine Wheel, one of the songs that actually is a song ... or at least as much as Byrne wrote them. As side projects went, The Catherine Wheel was pretty major.
Keren Ann: Lay Your Head Down. A gift from the KEXP song podcast. A bit melancholy, but it's a refreshing sound for this time of the year.
Medeski, Martin & Wood: I Wanna Ride You. A rather rude title, no? And a great song for sipping beer while the barbecue warms up. Trust me.
