In this episode of Single Servings, we look at “Dead,” a single originally arranged/co-written by Moses Dillard and recorded by Carolyn Sullivan in two versions, one for the local Dallas-Fort Worth label, Soft, then picked up for national distribution by Philips. It’s one of the most morose soul songs out there, with its local version including graphic details of suicide. Even the more sanitized version is still plenty dark but what makes it memorable is also the fact that Major Bill Smith, wh...

How The Newton Brothers Got To Be Masters Of Horror Music

When they started collaborating in 2011, they didn’t plan on their composing careers revolving around the stuff of nightmares. And the work, they’ll freely admit, can exert a psychological toll. “Being in a dark room staring at dark imagery for a long time, it does get to you. Sometimes you need to step aside and go watch ‘Finding Nemo’ with your niece.” – The New York Times

Ears Wide Open: Trends

L.A. indie-rockers Trends sound nothing like the music their name suggests. No overcooked production, vocoders or robotic drum beats here, just dynamic, emotive, warm rock that recalls the Silver Lake scene of the late ’90s and early Aughts. Indeed, says singer-guitarist Marina Paiz, “Our band name is a play on the fact that trends are an everlasting concept — if something falls out of favor, it comes back 20 years later.” Begun as Paiz’s lo-fi solo project, Trends now includes drummer Karen Mor...

Agnes Obel: Broken Sleep

“This song was, surprisingly enough, written in a period where I was struggling with falling asleep,” Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel says of her new single “Broken Sleep.” Obel wrote, recorded and produced the track, on which she plays the piano and sings. Exquisite string work adds volume to the ethereal number, which will appear on Obel’s forthcoming album, Myopia, out 21 February.  A perfect tonal …

It’s a brand new year! Here we go again! Trail Mix is back again with the same resolution as always; to turn you on to the best roots music we can find and share with you each and every month! Years ago, I caught Drive-By Truckers at the Haymaker Music Festival near Fredericksburg. I didn’t get it. I didn’t dig it. And then I heard Brighter Than Creation’s Dark and I was a changed man.

Stream: Diane Coffee, ‘The Foot Sign Song’

Maybe you know the tale of Silver Lake’s late, lamented Happy Foot/Sad Foot Sign — the cartoonish two-sided sign that marked the location of the Sunset Foot Clinic on Sunset Boulevard. A weird landmark in a city of weird landmarks, it gained legend as a totem for locals who believed the fate of their day rested on which side of the sign they encountered in passing. Shaun Fleming — aka Diane Coffee — today unveiled “The Foot Sign Song,” a frolicsome homage to it (and maybe a rallying cry for the ...

Alles, was du jemals & niemals über Po-Haare wissen wolltest

„Kannst du mir etwas über Po-Haare erzählen?“ Niemals im Leben hätte ich gedacht, dass ich diesen Betreff in einer Email verfassen würde. Nicht falsch verstehen: Es ist nicht so, als wären Po-Haare so eine seltene Sache. Ich meine, du hast sie, ich habe sie, die Kardashians haben sie (oder hatten sie zumindest irgendwann mal)… Und doch sind die Härchen an unserem Gesäß dann doch eher Privatsache – eigentlich witzig, wenn man bedenkt, dass wir sonst ja auch immer alles auf Instagram, Faceboo...
