“Phantom Pt. II” by Justice

Me: I can’t stop listening to this song.

Everybody else: Why?

Me: It’s just so damn cool and fun, like some kind of late-70’s/early-80’s roller-disco revival.

Everybody else: Why is that cool?

Me: It just is! Shut up!

The Joup Friday Album: “Dirty South” — Drive-By Truckers

DrivebytruckerIf you want an excellent, straightforward review of the Drive-By Truckers’ album, “Dirty South,” read contributor Stephen M. Deusner’s piece for Pitchfork. You’ll find no better deconstruction of what that album was about. You’ll discover, should you be patient and forgiving enough to truly research the history of Southern myths, there is much that exists in the gray area between good and bad, right and wrong, legal and illegal. Deusner’s words are well thought-out, well-considered and on point.

So what then, can one add to a discussion about this album? For that, we need to start in the Spring of 2014 and look at a connection between Texas and California that ran through Southern Ohio.

I don’t know why, but I love the word “twee.”

The Joup Friday Album: Jay Reatard – Singles 06-07

jayreatardHonestly, I’ve always wished that I could have made (and still make) my living playing music.  To be in a band.  To be a musician, on the road, in the studio, on stage or in the corner in clubs and bars and dives across the world.   Or, just as a session guy or recording artist, a local residency to play to a roomful of folks every weekend.  I was in a band for a few years.  We played some shows and recorded an album.  I suppose it could have happened.  But it didn’t.  And now I’m left with some fond, if fading memories, and some halfcocked daydreams that surface when I’m bored…OR when I hear certain songs or albums or artists.  And so, we have the wonderful, all-too-short career of Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr., better known to you and me as punk and garage rock troubadour Jay Reatard.
