Music Library: Blumfeld, BMX Bandits, Bo Diddley + Abe Vigoda, AC/DC, Akron/Family, City of God, Bill Evans, and Black Keys

Blumfeld - "Jet Set." Punky song somewhere between The Fall and, I don't know, the Electric Six.

BMX Bandits - "Let's Go Where The Action Is." Neo-garage/neo-bubblegum song.

Bo Diddley - "Who Do You Love?," The EP Collection, and "Road Runner." There's some that's just plain infectious about the beat to these songs. I wonder what it could be?

Catch up:

Abe Vigoda - Skeleton. The children of Deerhoof and ADHD. I like 'em!

AC/DC - Black Ice. This up-and-coming band might be around for a while.

Akron/Family - Live at Sin-e 1/9/2005. I love me some Akron/Family, but they were still working on their sound when this was recorded. It's entirely lacking in the surprise and catharsis of their studio work.

Antônio Pinto & Ed Cortês - City of God Soundtrack. Standard-issue Brazilian folk music, from the sound of things. Nothing as revolutionary as the tropicalia stuff or Tom Zê, but pretty enjoyable for what it is.

Bill Evans - The Complete Live At The Village Vanguard. Freakin' awesome. Maybe I'm the only one, but I sure dig Bill Evans.

The Black Keys - The Big Come Up and Attack And Release. Okay blues-rock.


Next time: a heaping helping of Bobby Zimmerman.
