Shoot, has it only been four days since we came back to work? It feels a lot longer. Luckily, it’s the weekend! Let’s kick it off right with Curtis Harding’s soulful hit “Need Your Love,” recommended by music editor Maicho James.
It’s been a slow week due to this but wanted to post a Friday music video: Aussie band Harry Howard and the NDE’s excellent track “We Can’t Decide,” another recommendation from music editor Maicho.
“Have a great weekend y’all!
It’s Friday, y’all! That means it’s time to shuck off the work week muck and dive head first into some fun.
To get you in the mood, here’s “Blue Cigar” by LA-based Midnight Sister, a suggestion of reader Maicho. If you have one, too, please let me know.
I’m taking some time off from online activities for a few days, to get some R&R before my book comes out. (Yeah, I wrote a book: The Log Cabin: An Illustrated History; it comes out Nov. 7.)
In the meantime, enjoy this audio from the Grateful Dead’s September 20, 1970, show at Fillmore East. It’s the entire 23 track set, obtained from Archive.org, which has all of the FREE National Archive GD audio’s.
Set list BELOW…
Originally recording in San Francisco in the late 80s and 90s, Doug Hream Blunt’s had a later-in-life renaissance as of late, re-releasing his music on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label, performing in Brooklyn last year at a Pitchfork-sponsored show and showing up in the indie-cum-HBO hit High Maintenance.
As we all prepare for our weekends, here are two original, circa 1990-1992 Doug Hream Blunt music videos: “Ride the Tiger” and “Caribbean Queen,” as well as a recording of “Fly Guy,” the track that appeared in High Maintenance. Find out more at Luaka Bop.
The latter two appear after the jump…
