This is just wonderful. A recent live set at the Roulette in New York to celebrate Mary Halvorson’s 40th birthday. This is the best filmed record we have so far of this extraordinary musician. Blessed with a tireless work ethic and a fearless sense of adventure, Mary is undoubtedly one of the very brightest stars in the musical firmament right now.

There is such a cool, unflustered elegance and unassuming intelligence about her playing that I find just so rewarding to listen to. How she prompts and prods her fellow musicians and how she delights when they push back and challenge her. In these grimmest of times, it is musical talents as strong and as fearless as these that make me so very glad to be alive.

This is just exceptional. The new single from The Weather Station, Robber, sees Tamara Lindeman going off in beautiful new directions. There is an urgency about this song, its insistent rhythms and its subtly elusive lyrics, which I find utterly compulsive and quite ingenious. A wonderful video as well which was also directed by Lindeman.

I can’t wait for the new album. Life is good when we are blessed with music this good.

“I never believed in the robber
Nobody taught me nothing was mine
If nothing was mine, taking was all there was
Looting at dawn looting at dusk
Hold open the gates for the want of lust
All I saw was the dust, kicked up”

Simply wonderful. Three recent live performances by Fiona Apple of songs from her wonderful album, Fetch The Bolt Cutters. Such creative fire channeled with such explosive venom.

“I grew up in the shoes they told me I could fill
Shoes that were not made for running up that hill
And I need to run up that hill
I need to run up that hill, I will, I will, I will, I will, I will”

I thought this was a lovely story, an enjoyable listen. Kristofferson comes across as a very decent skin in this.

An Aboriginal choir hailing from Cairns, Queensland, Spinifex Gum performed this gorgeous rendition of Tom Waits' “Make It Rain”, sung partly in the traditional Aboriginal Yindjibarndi language.

Watch their performance of the song at the Sydney Opera house here:

This week, I have been listening to the outstanding new song from The Weather Station, Parking Lot, on repeat.

“Is it alright if I don’t wanna sing tonight? I know you are tired of seeing tears in my eyes. But are there not good reasons to cry? I swear I’m alright - maybe you could just let it slide. I confess I don’t wanna undress this feeling, I am not poet enough to express this peeling. Was I not yet naked enough? Too quick to blush; already I am too much.”

Tamara Lindeman has gone from strength to strength over the course of her last 3 albums and her evolution is similar to that of Joni Mitchell’s journey from Blue to Court And Spark to Hissing Of Summer Lawns. She is a quite exceptional songwriter, one of the very finest at work right now.
I can’t wait to hear her new album, Ignorance, released today, and one which I fully expect to feature on many best of the year lists at year’s end.

And here is the simply shot, but so very effective, promo video. The ending is very touching, as the camera which has followed her throughout the video suddenly stops, and she continues walking onwards until she finally sinks to her knees and looks out to the shore.

An old version of this song live by St Vincent in a church. I have always found live versions of this track really enjoyable.

Of course I can't resist adding this one which includes David Byrne but I think it is better not because of Mr Byrne but the brass band and the stage performance. There are many more live versions with this band on Youtube some that look much better because of the lighting but all are audience recordings hence are quiet poor. On this video you have to skip ahead to the third track for 'The Party' but as a shout out to David Byrne who won two emmys last night for the stage adaption of American Utopia the last track Road to Nowhere is also really well done.
