This week on Bubble Wrap, lots of great new music, more Rufus, and even some rarities from before modern times.
Josh Ritter – Old Black Magic. Josh is suddenly older and more rocking. But I might not have been paying attention while this was happening…
Durand Jones and the Indications. So true to 70s soul, you’ll swear you’ve heard them before. But probably you haven’t. Great group with all the right soulful inflection.
Royal Trux – Suburban Junkie Lady. Wow, they’re still around. Love this song. It’s classic Trux and so sad.
GRIZ – Can’t Get Enough. Funky white boy hiphop. Fun!
Rudy Willingham – Pool Party. I don’t know anything about Rudy Willingham but I do know that Pool Party will make you giggle.
The Hermits – Teeth of the Mountain. Groovy marching song for psychedelic hipsters. From Austin!
Nilüfer Yanya – In Your Head. Urgently romantic europop. Lost and in love.
Better Oblivion Community Center – Dylan Thomas. Hard not to love this, esp if you liked the Blake Babies. With perfect boy/girl vocals and obscure literary references, indie rock lives on
And so much more! Read on for the voluminous details.
