Not necessarily released in 2020, these were nevertheless some of the songs I listened to all year long: a personal time capsule of the past twelve months. Enjoy!
I created a Spotify playlist for Barry Gifford’s Roy stories, filled with many tunes he references directly in the stories as well as others from the period that vibe well with his words. Check it out!
David Byrne’s American Utopia  1. Tracing the longitudinal fissure with his index finger. 2. Pant leg dance moves. 3. Congratulating an audience member on his age.
Contemporary Color  1. Nighttime. Practicing in the middle of the street. 2. Catching the flag by the silk. 3. Writing the song in a day, recording the song in a day; crafting the routine in 26 weeks.
War Requiem  1. The futility of digging trenches in mud. 2. Helmet sprouting grass. 3. The soldiers form a tableau.
Hard to believe that it’s been more than 3 years since a group of amazing musicians met up at Electrical Audio in Chicago to lay down some music for the soundtrack of Roy’s World: Barry Gifford’s Chicago. Hope this streaming … Continue reading
Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock & Roll  1. When two elephants fight, it’s the grass that gets trampled. 2. One week later he was dead. 3. Emulating The Shadows. An excellent portrait of creativity’s resilience. Really nourishing. … Continue reading
Diva  1. Glimpse of a Harry Nilsson album at the record store. 2. Smearing blood on strangers at the video arcade. 3. How’d he get into the theater? Or the control booth? It’s also hard to believe that his … Continue reading
Jazz ’34: Remembrances of Kansas City Swing  1. Water pitcher as mute. 2. He takes off his jacket, carefully buttons his vest, proceeds to blow. 3. BBQ wagon on the street.
The Seventh Veil  1. “If you can’t think anything better, play chromatic scales or a five fingers exercise. But spare me that suburban shopgirl trash!” 2. Hugh McDermott’s murky American accent. 3. Those last two shots nearly ruin the … Continue reading
