Tonight is tomorrow

Since I'll be busy with the Merseyside Derby in the morning. Shopping in the afternoon, and the Doctor Who finale at night - here is what I've been listening to over the past few weeks.

He's coming to Columbus on Wednesday. Just him, and a guitar. We're going.

I know very little about the Eurovision Song Contest. I've been finding some very interesting songs on youtube from it and am thinking of doing a weekly feature here. Again, I know nothing about this, but digging around one can find the scary, the plain weird, and the amazing. I really like finding international music through youtube, you learn a lot.

Case in point.

Stevie Jackson, the guitarist of Belle & Sebastian has just released his debut solo album, and it's pretty darn good.

Been listening to 12 Songs, always loved his original version that Three Dog Night turned into the hit.

I was going to post something off his wonderful new record, The Old Magic, but stumbled across this video, which I had never seen before. Listened to a set of his from Maryland last Sunday. He opened for Wilco and sounded sweet. This man has a deep catalog of great songs that have been long ignored and overlooked. He's one of the best.

That's what's been on in the car, and in my headphones.

Love Nick Lowe and that video! Thanks for sharing. I'd never heard it before.

That song was written well before the Rick Roll started. Never saw that video until last night.
