Cinco de Mayo – War

Once you hear the lyrics,  you’ll realize that this is not about the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

A Summer Thing – Cayucas

Indie pop from Santa Monica.

Salad Days – Mac DeMarco

This Canadian rocker’s been called “rude, crude and obnoxious,” but he sounds like pussycat on this track.

(Give Me Back My) Bunty Bunty – The Bombay Royale

Don’t be surprised if this band made it’s way into a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack.

The Jitterbug Waltz – Fats Waller

The Fat Man at his creative best, this 1942 lullaby brought a little lighthearted respite to a nation at War.

I Got Stoned And I Missed It – Shel Silverstein 

What else would you expect from the guy who wrote “A Boy Named Sue” and “Cover of The Rolling Stone?”

Sing A Simple Song – Sly & The Family Stone

B-side to ‘Everyday People’ – could have been the A-side.

 Highway Down – Black Bananas

Electric rock funk from Jennifer Herrema’s new outfit Black Bananas. Not like the Royal Trux at all.

 So It Goes – Nick Lowe

Traditional pub rock from the master of pop – also the first single released on Stiff Records.

California Dreamin’ – Bobby Womack

R.I.P. Bobby Womack.
