I will forever be wired to seek out new music on Tuesdays, the recent shift to Friday releases be damned. Today I came across a few new goodies:
- Marissa Nadler has a new track, “Janie in Love,” from her forthcoming Strangers. It’s a stronger effort to my ears than her unremarkable 2014 album July, but not as striking as the first album of hers to captivate me, her Songs III: Bird on the Water. I still dig it though and it’s the first tune of hers in a while that’s staying with me, so go listen.
- Someone put together a compilation of Herbie Hancock playing the Fender Rhodes electric piano on other peoples’ albums. The compilation sticks to fusion jazz, so doesn’t include his appearance on Paul Desmond’s Bridge Over Troubled Water or Joni Mitchell’s Mingus, but is still a pretty good survey of the master’s work on what must be the most distinctive of electric keyboard sounds.
