Paul Simon – The Obvious Child

As I mentioned yesterday, I have been listening to The Rhythm of The Saints a lot of late. It is a spectacular album. I stumbled across this video, for the lead single from the album and rather enjoyed it, particularly the purity of the drummers, who I think are members of the Afro-Brazilian band Olodum.

Neko Case* – Night Still Comes | (NAT)

I came across this track, by American singer Neko Case, on Pitchfork this week. While it isn’t the type of thing that gets my pulse racing (it is just a little tame perhaps) it has been playing on repeat since. It’s funny how that can happen sometimes.

It is taken from her wonderfully titled upcoming album The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You.

Bob Dylan – Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door

I heard this on the radio earlier and was reminded of what a great track it is. I saw Bob Dylan play in 2001 at Kilkenny (I really can’t believe it was that long ago). It was one of the best gigs I have ever been to. He really knows how to put a backing band together. Also, with Elvis Costello supporting, it was a pretty stellar line up.
