The National make an appearance in RR this week with a cover of INXS’s big hit “Never Tear Us Apart.” It’s a new sound for singer Matt Berninger, and a cool take on something that is no longer old, but new again. It’s all for a great cause, Songs for Australia is a compilation that will donate all proceeds to help Australia rebuild after the awful bushfire crisis.[embedded content]
Finally, finally, finally The Housemartin’s Paul Heaton makes his long-awaited return with his not-so-solo project that continues to include Jacqui Abbott. She has become a staple on the last four solo projects of Paul’s and makes for an extremely sexy duo. The 16 song opus is on Spotify now, get involved.[embedded content]
“Dear God” see Phantogram on a new, soulful vibe, giving their sound a much-needed update.
This is a super-strong, creative return. Possibly their best record to date?[embedded content]
Your slice of jazz comes from female vocalist Bebel Gilberto. She’s touring behind a new album this summer, do not miss her live, or you will never forgive yourself.[embedded content]
