3 Songs: On Repeat

Two Gallants – “We Are Undone” (The blues-punk duo Adam Stephens and Tyson Vogel return with their fifth album, We Are Undone, out now via ATO Records.  Recorded in one month’s time with producer Karl Derfler (Tom Waits) the album opens with the noisy, damaged slide guitar-enhanced blues groove of the standout single and title track heard here and captures the immediacy and energy of the quick recording session.)

Bob Dylan – (One musical legend takes on another as Dylan has recorded and released an album of songs originally made famous by Frank Sinatra.  With the aptly-tilted Shadows In The Night, out now on Columbia Records, Bob pays homage to the crooner by imparting the songs with his own unique voice and haunting and bluesy arrangements.)

Stream the wispy pedal steel-led and twilight-lit standout track, “Full Moon And Empty Hearts” at Dylan’s site here:

Belle And Sebastian – “Nobody’s Empire” (The Scottish indie-pop group returns with their long-awaited ninth album, Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance, out now on Matador.  The pretty, chiming piano-led first single heard here opens the album which was produced and mixed by Ben H. Allen III (Animal Collective) and blends in touches of danceable synth-led rhythms and melodies to their signature bookish, 60’s pop sound.  Also, Dee Dee Penny of Dum Dum Girls contributes guest vocals.)
