This Week’s Hit Parade

A quick rundown of what we’ve been listening to this week here at headquarters:

Seasick Steve. “Man From Another Time” (2010, Ryko/Atlantic): Minimalist, sometimes thoroughly creepy, backwoods blues featuring ex-hobo Steve Wold (on gruff vocals, banjo, a variety of customized guitars, the three-stringed trance wonder and the one-stringed diddley bow) and his drummer Dan Magnusson. And stay tuned at the end for the hidden bonus track duet with Amy LaVere on Hank’s classic “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.”

Johnny Cash. “American VI: Ain’t No Grave” (2010, Lost Highway)
Maura Kennedy. “Parade of Echoes” (2010, Planned Effervescence)
Angelo Badalamenti’s soundtrack for “The City of Lost Children” (1995, Point Music). Gearing up for Jean Pierre Jeunet’s new film, “Micmacs.”
Bobby Charles. “Timeless” (2010, Rice ‘n’ Gravy)
Gene Clark
. “Silverado ’75-Live & Unreleased” (2008, Collectors’ Choice Music)
Debbie Gibson. “Greatest Hits” (1995, Atlantic): I just had a real hankering to hear “Only in My Dreams.” I hit the repeat button several times.
Lauren Kinhan. “Avalon” (2010, E1 Music)
Ooppera Skaala. “Philip Glass’ ‘A Madrigal Opera.'” (2009, Orange Mountain Music)
k.d. lang. “Invincible Summer” (2000, Warner Bros.)
