Still here, still listening to music

No reviews, but here's some stuff I've been enjoying lately off the clock...

Pravda Records, the label that put out Glenn Mercer's very excellent solo album out last year, sent me a new record by the Diplomats of Solid Sound...Featuring the Diplomettes. It's sort of a funk-garage-soul kind of thing...if you're into Booker T & the MGs, Sharon Jones, you should check it out. My favorite cut is this killer remix of "Hurt Me So" at the end. We've been listening to it in the car all summer.

Here's a video of the Diplomats (and Diplomettes) performing "Lights Out"


Vivian Girls are a new garage band out on In the Red...that judging by one MP3 and this video, I'm probably going to like a lot:


And finally, Angela Desveaux, a country-ish singer out of Montreal, has a new album called The Mighty Ship coming on Thrill Jockey this fall....fans of Neko, Laura Cantrell, etc. should check this out.



Maybe tomorrow somebody will run a review or something, who knows?
