SXSW 2014: All the Bands I Saw

March 29, 2014

Alejandro Escovedo Lucys

Each day during SXSW 2014, I provided a “box score” listing the bands I saw the preceding day.  I’ve collected them all here, so that those who are interested can find all the bands I saw and my capsule opinion of them in one place and not have to scroll from post to post.

Tuesday

Band Comments
East Cameron Folkcore This nine piece band includes trombone, cello and male and female backup singers, and really likes electric guitar solos. They started the show with a rant about The Machine. If Pink Floyd were an Americana band The Wall would have sounded like this show.
Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison Perfect country perfectly played, with the bonus of Kelly’s unique voice that seems to be able to tap directly into my nervous system.  A homer run, as always!
Nakia Nakia was backed by a six piece band with percussion and keys. His songs are a mix of 60s pop and soul, with electric guitar solos thrown into the mix.  Perhaps not the best show to evaluate, as they keyboards were almost totally lost in the mix.
Caught A Ghost Soul tinged pop was the stock in trade for this LA band. They have an interesting instrumental mix with guitar, keys drums percussion and sax.  The male and female lead singers kept everything upbeat and fun.
 Madi Diaz  I’ve wanted to catch Madi ever since I saw her join Harper Blynn for a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s The Chain two years ago (you can see that video here).  I wish the wait had not been so long.  Madi led a three piece band (keys, drums and electric guitar) with a very full sound and played upbeat atmospheric rock.  A great close to the night and definitely a home run!

Wednesday

Band Comments
Kelly Mickwee Kelly played with a trio but one which provider her with a very full sound.  She played alt country and Americana with strong vocals and very good songwriting. A hit!
James McMurtry Played solo; an excellent guitarist
Bobby Rush An 81 year old Chicago bluesman who sounded just as you would imaging, but with some additional funk in his bag of tricks.
The Howlin’ Brothers Old time country trio (guitar, bass and violin or banjo) who played with verve and passion.
Bonnie Whitmore Bonnie has been around the scene, both in NYC and Austin for a while.  Today she played with a trio and her set rocked, especially when she moved over to her brand new electric guitar. A hit!
Blackie and The Rodeo Kings Instead of a band this time around, we got just the three frontmen.  But Colin, Stephen and Tom, played guitars (and sometimes mandolin and dobro) like their lives depended on it and rocked the audience. A hit!
Alejandro Escovedo This time out, Alejandro played with a classic four piece band and stuck with his most rocking songs. A hit!
Dayna Kurtz Dayna played solo, sticking to torchy and bluesy songs.  Her powerful voice wowed the audience and won her a bunch of new fans. A hit!
Benjamin Booker Benjamin played electric guitar and was accompanied by a drummer. Everything was cranked up so high that the music overwhelmed the sound system. What we got was sonic mush.
Lucius Pop with twin female leads. Musically diverse and interesting.  Striking attention has been paid to the visual elements of the band including matching clothes and hair styles.
Lucinda Williams First time I’ve seen Lucinda in a dozen years.  She played a mix of older stuff and songs from a forthcoming double album.  The performance was classic Lucinda.

Thursday

Band Comments
A Great Big World Combine Ben Folds, Billy Joel, The Kinks, Simon and Garfunkle, The Bonzo Dog Band, and add freshness and enthusiasm and you can get an idea where this tremendously entertaining band is coming from.
Parsons Red Head A classic four piece band playing psychedelic rock and 60s jangle pop including some guitar licks probably not played in the last 40 years.  They’re from Oregon, but if they play NYC in the future I’d see them.
The Split Squad This version of the band had a a couple of substitutions for regualr band members.  They played straight ahead rock with a big debt to the 60s and 70s.
The Baseball Project The Baseball Project this time around included Mike Mills and Fenway organist Josh Kantor but not Peter Buck.  The set introduced songs from 3rd, the new BBP record due out in two weeks.  Subjects of those new songs include the Oakland As, Cuban ball players, Bernie Williams, Dale Murphy (written by Mike Mills) and A-Rod.  A hit for extra bases!
Steve Wynn and The Miracle 3 This time out, it was more like Steve and The Miracle 4 with Scott McCaughey playing base and Josh Kantor again on organ.  If you are a regular reader here, you already know that I think that SW+M3 are the best rock band out there.  This short but intense and cathartic set just proves that point. A home run!
Louise Goffen Louise played piano, uke and guitar.  Her voice is similar to that of Jill Sobule.  However her voice seemed to undercut her first two songs (on piano).  Whatever the problem was, it did not reappear for the rest of the set, which was pleasant.
The Parlotones This band is from South Africa, where, we were told, they are huge.  But only 2 of the 4 band members showed so I’m not sure what ultimately they were supposed to sound like. This set was played with just an amplified acoustic guitar and percussion. Their songs have Dylan like lyrical complexity and some of them had some Beatle like melodies. But after a while the songs began sounding the same to me.
Ruby the Rabbitfoot This guitar, bass and sometimes keyboard trio sounds like a more languid Victoria Williams.  Ultimately they did not command my attention
The Mastersons This set consisted solely of songs off of The Mastersons’ record due out June 17th, Good Luck Charm.  Even if this was the fourth show they played on Thursday, they and their new material sounded great and the wonderful harmonies of Chris and Eleanor are there in the songs. A hit!
Laura Cantrell Laura played with a full band and included songs from her new album and older material as well.  Consistently enjoyable alt country.

SXSW 2014: Wednesday’s Box Score

March 13, 2014

Alejandro Escovedo Lucys

I awoke to the news this morning of a horrible accident at SXSW, apparently involving a drunk driver.  According to the reports I’ve seen, two people were killed and 23 were injured.  Neither I nor anyone I’m with here at SXSW were anywhere near the accident scene.  But my hearts go out to those involved and their family and friends.

In any event, here is the box score detailing the 11 bands I saw yesterday.

Best Albums of 2013 – Part 2

December 20, 2013

Here are the second five albums in the Now I’ve Heard Everything Best of 2013 list; you’ll find the first part here.

Garland Jeffreys Truth SerumGarland Jeffreys – Truth Serum: Garland Jeffreys is as much a part of New York City as New York City is a part of him.  And just like New York, Garland welcomes many voices, in his case musical ones.  Truth Serum, Garland’s album released this year, is in part, rock, blues, reggae and ballads.  And to paraphrase NYC’s  former Mayor Dinkins, it is a gorgeous mosaic of all of them.  This time out, Garland and James Maddock handled the production chores.  Highlights include the title track, Any Rain and Dragons to Slay.

Danya Kurtz Secret Canon Vol 2 coverDayna Kurtz – Secret Canon Vol. 2: Dayna quickly followed up her wonderful 2012 release of  Secret Canon, Vol. 1, with Volume 2.  Like Volume 1, this release contains covers of mid-20th century jazz, blues and R&B songs (mostly) not previously covered, plus originals (two this time around) that sounds right at home in that mix. Dayna imbues these songs with intensity and emotion.  You can’t go wrong with anything from this record, but Reconsider Me and I’ll Be a Liar are favorites.

Caitlin Rose -The Stand-InCaitlin Rose – The Stand-In: Nashville native Caitlin Rose released The Stand-In early in 2013 and it was clear then that it would end up on this list.  Caitlin’s music veers between country and rock, with an occasional side trip into 30s jazz.   Only in her mid-20s, Caitlin, is a strong songwriter and a wonderful singer who can reach back to deliver a lyric with incredible force when the song demands it.  I find myself drawn to the rockers No One to Call (about the deterioration of radio) and Only A Clown (about being the odd person out), but everything here is worth repeated listens.

Kelly Willis Bruce Robison Cheaters Game coverKelly Willis and Bruce Robison – Cheater’s Game: I first heard the amazing, aching, emotive voice of Kelly Willis 15 years ago singing I Have Not Forgotten You.  It was an outstanding performance of a remarkable song, a break up song, to be sure, but one about a break up gone right; the singer ends up recalling her ex fondly.  Although I didn’t know it at first, the writer of the song was Bruce Robison, then as well as now, Kelly’s husband.  After forging separate paths in the music business, Bruce and Kelly decided to join forces and have been recording and performing together for a few years now.  Cheater’s Game is their second album together and it is a wonderful record which shows how modern country music can sound when done right.  Kelly and Bruce take the lead vocals on different songs, with the other singing backup.  The musicianship is top notch as is the songwriting.  The stand out song here is the cover of 9,999,999 Tears with Kelly taking the lead.

Jahn Xavier and Bowerytones Yes You coverJahn Xavier and The Bowerytones – Yes, You: Formerly a member of Richard Hell and The Voidiods and The Nitecaps when they were Mick Jagger‘s favorite band, Jahn Xavier has been on the New York music scene for a good bit.  But this year Jahn and his band, The Bowerytones, released their first album, and it’s a very good one indeed. Titled Yes, You, it is a rock record with 13 Jahn Xavier original songs.  Even with just a three piece band, the sound here is full and supports Jahn’s soulful vocals.  The record opens with I Still Yearn which looks back at Jahn’s career and lays out the reasons why he’s still playing music all these years later.  The rest of the album does not disappoint and other highlight tracks are Five Years Old and Jesus De Milo.


Tonight: Dayna Kurtz at The Living Room

October 1, 2013

 

Dayna Kurtz‘s Secret Canon, Vol. 1 was one of Now I’ve Heard Everything’s Best Albums of 2012 and Do I Love You from that record was Now I’ve Heard Everything’s Best Song of 2012. That record consists of mid 20th century r&b, jazz and/or blues songs which have not been previously covered or covered only once. Both live and on record, Dayna is able to infuse this material with tremendous verve and passion.

Dayna has continued down that same road with her latest album, Secret Cannon, Vol. 2.  You can see a video of Dayna singing Reconsider Me, a song from that album, by clicking here.

Dayna used to be based here, but moved down to New Orleans earlier this year.  So take this opportunity to catch Dayna tonight, her last show ever at The Living Room in its current location.   Dayna will be playing will a Peter Vitalone on piano.

Dayna Kurtz, The Living Room, 154 Ludlow Street between Stanton and Rivington Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 7pm, $15

Music Video: Dayna Kurtz – Reconsider Me

June 4, 2013

Dayna Kurtz Reconsider Me

Dayna Kurtz just released a new album yesterday, Secret Canon Vol. 2.  It’s the follow up to last years Secret Canon Vol. 1, which was not only one of the Now I’ve Heard Everything Best Albums for 2012, but which also contained the Now I’ve Heard Everything Best Song of 2012, Do I Love You.

Here is Dayna’s first video off the new album.  It’s a cover of Reconsider Me, a song released back in 1969.

Dayna is also playing tonight at The Living Room with a band with horns and strings.  That show starts at 7pm and is scheduled for two hours.
