This week’s track is Bow Down by Westside Connection off of Bow Down. Angry, thuggy, mean, and mad, it’s an anthem to the 90s East Coast-West Coast feud.
This week’s track is Sea of Love by The National off of Trouble Will Find Me. While the world is gushing over the Daft Punk album, this week we go to rock: drums, guitars, vocals, pedals, etc. High Violet was on high repeat for me back in 2010 and Sea of Love and Trouble Will Find me is a return to that same sound.
This week’s track is 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago off of Chicago. Recorded at the end of the 60s, but with a sound that’s squarely past the 60s, this song opens with a rocking horn line on top of the melody carried by the guitars and drums. Toss in Peter Cetera’s vocals (singing about who-knows-what), the song is a classic.
