FRIENDS OF RED JACKET MINE

1. Hand Me Down – Visqueen

Led by the fabulous Ms. Rachel Flotard (whose lovely pipes you might’ve heard backing Ms. Neko Case), Seattle rockers Visqueen have released one of 2009’s finest records in Message to Garcia. This track opens the album, and Ms. Case returns the favor on backing vocals. Thunderous, thrilling pop music.

2. Racing Stripe Winter – Red Heart the Ticker

When I first heard this song on KEXP in the fall of 2006, I thought to myself, “I need to know these people.” Three years later, it’s still one of my favorites. Ty Gibbons and Robin MacArthur  are some of the nicest folks you’ll ever meet, and absolutely enchanting in a live setting. They’ve since released another fine album, 2009’s Oh My! Mountains Below.

3. Turnaround This Car – The Devil Whale

The mayors of Salt Lake City, Utah, and some of our best friends in music. Brinton Jones has the kind of voice that you can’t help feeling is singing directly to you, and I can’t think of a higher compliment. We love these guys, and you should, too.

4. Too Early – Cobirds Unite

Rusty Willougby (née Llama, Flop, Pure Joy) is one of my favorite songwriters in a city full of great ones, and his talents commingle with those of the aforementioned Ms. Flotard (Visqueen) and Mr. Barrett Martin (of Screaming Trees/Tuatara renown) to form Cobirds Unite. Rumor has it that an entire album’s worth of these supple, lovely recordings exists…in the meantime, check out rustywilloughby.com to indulge.

5. Chelsea Turnaround – Downpilot

Paul Hiraga and the rest of Downpilot have been dear friends for ages, and we recently shared a record release party (for our new one, Lovers Lookout, and theirs, They Kind of Shine). Out now on Germany’s Tapete Records.

6. Let You Down – Burning Rivers

My friends Ben London and Joshua Medaris lead Burning Rivers, a band in which I’m honored to fill the ‘Steve Gaines’ (read: third guitar) role as time permits. They’ve been in other, better-known, bands, of course, but all you really need to know is that Burning Rivers is American rock and roll of the highest order. This track is from their forthcoming debut LP, The Hardest Part of Letting Go.

7. This World (Already Over) – Nathan Wade & the Dark Pioneers

Nathan Wade is a man of extraordinary cojones, bucking against indie-rock fashion to pursue a singular vision he bleakly describes as ‘post-apocalypse Americana.’ This track, while brilliant, is hardly indicative of the freewheeling breadth of the Dark Pioneers’ forthcoming debut full-length, The Gospel of Rust. It does, however, feature Patrick Porter (of RJM) on pedal steel, and yours truly on Morricone lead guitar. You’ll have to discover the rest for yourself.

8. Milo – Amateur Radio Operator

Some of RJM’s earliest Seattle shows were shared with Mark Johnson and his band, Amateur Radio Operator. This song (from their debut album, Sirens of Titan) has always been one of my favorites of theirs. Epic, atmospheric Americana.

9. Silver Spoon – Ben Brackett

Wunderkind Ben Brackett released an absolutely stellar debut record in 2007’s Hear Ye Hear Ye, and I hear he’s working on a new one, sure to humble songwriters twice his age (again). Rest assured I’ll be listening.
http://www.myspace.com/benjaminbrackett

10. Out of Town – Explone

Full disclosure: Explone is led by my good friend Patrick Porter, who also plays guitar and pedal steel in RJM. Fans of the brilliant melodicism present in his RJM contributions will find much to love here. This lovely road song is featured on his debut album, Crooks.
http://www.explone.com

11. Thirty Reasons – Octoberman

Octoberman is a cross-Canadian indie/folk troupe led by my longtime pal Marc Morrisette: road warrior, gentleman, and scholar. This lovely ditty is from their most recent album, Fortresses, out now on White Whale Records.

12 . showponies – red jacket mine

deep-dark

1. The Stanley Brothers- Rank Strangers
An Old hymn written by one of the greatest hymn writers of all time Albert Brumley. Ralph and Carter Stanley harmonize like brothers should, it makes you ache, especially if you haven’t been to church in a while.

2. Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys- Little Community Church
Another beauty in the harmony department. It aches and pains me to listen to this one. One of Bill Monroe’s finest moments.

3. Bob Dylan- When He Returns
A real gem that people seem to forget about, just Bob Dylan and his piano from the wonderful gospel record “Slow Train Coming”. You can really hear that Dylan is on fire on this recording.

4. Five Blind Boys Of Alabama- I Can See Everybody’s Mother
I real beauty from 1964, this great band has been performing together since 1948 forming at Talladega Blind School in Alabama. This is one of those rare tracks that can bring a man to his knees and thank the good Lord for this wonderful music.

5. Al Green- Jesus Is Waiting
From Al Green’s Call Me album, one of his best. This track is by far the best tune on the album, beautiful strings and soulful singing by Mr. Green.

6. Elvis Presley- Milky White Way
Off of Elvis’ best gospel record “His Hand In Mine”. Really nice backing vocals by the Jordanaires. Showing that Elvis still had some great performances left in the old tank back in 1960. A lot of people say that Elvis started to suck after he left Sun Records. Well let me tell you, Elvis’ album from 1956-1960 are all fantastic.

7. Flatt and Scruggs- Take Me In A Lifeboat
A great early track by one of greatest bluegrass bands of all time. It’s a nice fast one that can make you a really happy person on a lonesome Sunday morning.

8. Johnny Cash- Lead Me Gently Home
From 1958, a real beauty from one of the greatest gospel country singers of all time. It comes from the album “Hymns”. It’s a very short album, but very good.

9. Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers- Steal Away
Before Sam Cooke went pop he led a wonderful gospel group the Soul Stirrers. They have a lot of great tunes, but “Steal Away” is one of the best.

10. The Staple Singers- Let Me Ride
Old Pops really shows his guitar skills on this one. Parliament/Funkadelic later did a nice cover of this tune, but there ain’t nothing better than the Staples version of this old black gospel hymn.

Top 10 Songs to Listen to on a Monday:

1. Ronnie Lane and Slim Chance- G’morning
I love the work he has done with the Faces/Small Faces, but his solo
stuff is some of his greatest work. This song has a great melody. In a
perfect world, I would feel like this song in the morning. It’s a
really fun song to play, too.

2. Son Volt – Windfall
One of my favorite Son Volt songs. The first time I heard this, I was
at my friend Steve Hansens house. It was about 5:00 in the morning,
after playing a house party in his backyard in San Diego. You can
imagine how good it sounded at that point. Sleepy country, my
favorite.

3. Marty Stuart- Homesick
Nothing gets me going in the morning like some nice bluegrass vocals,
and this is about as good as you can get. It’s a live performance, and
Marty is about one of the finest showman there is.

4. Mike Stinson- When My Angel Gets High
Mike Stinson is one my favorite local songwriters. His vocals are
almost eerie at times, almost like a controlled Roky Erikson. I really
dig the stuff he does with a full band, but I think it’s nice to hear
a stripped down version of his songs, as well. I hear he moved to
Houston. I really hope he moves back.

5. Ramblin’ Jack Elliot (w/ Emmylou Harris and Nancy Griffith)- Rex’s Blues
You take one of Townes’ greatest songs, mix it with these characters,
and your bound to hear something amazing. Such a great combination of
voices. I met Ramblin’ Jack when he was walking around UCLA after a
show he played there. He was opening random doors and when the usher
asked him what he was doing he said “I’m looking for Merle.”…Got to
love it.

6. Roky Erickson- Please Judge
I can’t mention Roky Erickson without adding one of his songs (see
song 4). I love the simplicity of his songs, yet they always seem so
powerful. Also, I have to go to court on Tuesday, the day after the
Echo show, and I’m hoping the judge is lenient. We have had a lot of
issues with the law lately. We had one chasin’ Brad up the studio
stairs–with gun drawn–just the other day. Needless to say, he caught
him. The good thing is that I got to watch the whole thing go down.
Cops = 6, Paperplanes = 0.

7. Waylon Jennings- All Around Cowboy (Bonus Track off Dreaming my Dreams)
“He remembers the thrill about being a winner…” When you are in your
car doing karaoke, that is about the best line in a song to sing. I
love the way Waylon produced his records, there is such a loneliness
in his vocals and the production. Waylons vocals are about one of the
best thing an ear can hear.

8. Flatlanders- One Day at a Time
I just got this record, and this song struck me immediately. Joe Ely
sounds great on his parts and Jimmy Dale Gilmore exploits the
uniqueness of his voice to really push this song in a beautiful way.
When they hit the second line in the chorus, it creates that tone
that, makes you say, “oh, man, that’s nice…” This is a great song to
hear when you are wasted, as well.

9. Terry Allen- The Beautiful Waitress
Now I can’t talk about Lubbock songwriters without mentioning Terry Allen.
‘Lubbock (on Everything)’ and ‘Juarez’ are 2 records that really
changed the way I think about songwriting. Basically, after hearing
these records, I realized that I was a horrible songwriter. Its hard
to put just one of his songs on, so I put this song on and hope you
buy the album to hear the entire record. Although the corny-ness of
these lyrics might throw you off at first, if you think about it,
there’s nothing corny about it at all. Everything is a story for him,
and I think the spoken word bit is classic Terry Allen. He’s weird,
and his music is beautiful. Richard Bowden plays an amazing fiddle,
as well.

10. Whiskey Biscuit- TV Remote Control
Whiskey Biscuit is one of my favorite LA bands. I’ve been a long time
fan of Jeff Cairns’ guitar playing, and this is one of my favorite
songs. Lazy country-rock with weird noises, that is the best music.
