There’s nothing quite like an inspired Randy Newman. Luckily, it doesn’t seem to take much to inspire the legendary songwriter. He’s always had a knack for looking out into the world and verbalizing the news as the absurdities that it usually shakes out to be. His new song is quite the take on Russia’s Vladimir Putin and is our first taste to a new studio album that’s due sometime in early 2017.
Monday brought the news of a new series called 30 Days, 30 songs, compiled by author Dave Eggers in protest of the Republican candidate running for president. The series launched with Death Cab For Cutie’s “Million Dollar Loan,” and today finds Aimee Mann’s “Can’t You Tell” making it’s way to us. Along with plenty of directed lyrics, there’s an obvious wink when she says “No one trumps that card.” It’s low hanging fruit, but would have been a missed opportunity otherwise. It also makes me really want a new album from Mann.
Death Cab For Cutie dropped a new one-off single today that is most definitely directed at Donald Trump.
“Proud to say he built his fortune the old fashion way
To succeed, there’s only one thing you really need.
A million dollar loan
Nobody makes it on their own
Without a million dollar loan
You reap what you sow
From a million dollar loan
Call your father on the phone
And get that million dollar loan.”
This marks the first music the band has released since last year’s Kintsugi, which was the final album with longtime member Chris Walla.
Julia Jacklin’s debut release ‘Don’t Let the Kids Win’ works like a musical punch to the gut, and it feels good. Each of the album’s 11 songs sounds effortlessly polished, her voice seasoned with the emotion of an entire lifetime. Jacklin takes elements of the whip-smart lyrics of fellow Australian Courtney Barnett, the evocative musicality of Angel Olsen, and Sharon Van Etten’s confessional poetry, to create an album that will pull you in and not let go. Get a taste of the album now by streaming the track “Coming Of Age”.
The Killers are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their sophomore album Sam’s Town by releasing a demo from the sessions of a track that wasn’t included on the final album. It would have fit perfectly though, and just goes to show how strong their songwriting was during that period.
While Ani DiFranco was skeptical that she’d be able to get any new music out before year’s end, it seems the music gods were able to align the stars close enough to make that very thing happen. Topical and timely, the single is a battle cry for women’s reproductive freedom laid over a great groove.
No word on the full album just yet, so here’s to hoping that news is right around the corner as well.
