Blues americana

Dr. D & Show Pony headcanons
  • D and Pony have the sort of relationship Red does with Nicky (OITNB)- Pony had a really severe substance abuse problem after leaving the City because he didn’t know any other way of coping with the desert. D found him and helped him get clean, acting as a very strong fatherly figure, which Pony never really had.
  • Pony’s first priority is always D. Over anything and everything.
  • Pony isn’t the only killjoy D has helped get clean, but he’s one of the only ones who takes care of D, and the only one who lives with him.
  • D truly enjoys Pony’s company. As much of a lone wolf as he comes off to be, he prefers to be around at least one other person. He has a valid “strength in numbers” mentality.
  • D’s favorite music is reggae, blues, and rock (specifically Americana). Pony prefers J-Pop and techno. Once or twice a week, Pony makes a mixtape for D’s station.
  • Pony makes little charms and hangs them off of D’s wheelchair.
  • D is the only person in the Zones who knows Pony’s real name.
  • Pony learned how to rollerskate so that both him and D could be on wheels.

Keb’ Mo’: BLUESAmericana

Keb’ Mo’
(Kind of Blue)
3 out of 5 stars

Those who were disappointed in the slick, blues-free approach that made Keb’ Mo’s previous release so bland will be pleased to know this follow-up three years later is a substantial improvement. Despite the singer/guitarist’s early affiliation with Robert Johnson, his albums have been more informed by an easy on the ears pop/blues/soul mix that hewed too close to snoozy to have much bite. But putting “blues” in caps for this release’s title is an indication of how he has retreated to the music that first put him on the map in 1994. While no one will mistake this for Muddy Waters or even Mo’s old mentor Taj Mahal, it’s encouraging that the album’s only non-original is from deep bluesman (and Waters sideman) Jimmy Rogers as opposed to a less than convincing Eagles cover from 2008’s fuzzy The Reflection.

From the debut album The American Dream on World Wide Vibe Records.

“The 50s concept is enhanced by producer/director Prefab International Cine, filming it at “Bel Air Motel” (which looks like LA but isn’t), with pulp fiction novels and glamor movie star magazines scattered about and cool guy Phil Gammage singing to an unseen lady love. It is bright and also faded, like a Philip Marlowe summer, the “77 Sunset Strip” album is no coincidence.”

Timber Timbre - Live im Astra, Berlin

Ein von den sonst so üblichen Fotografen verwaister Konzertgraben (der Bereich zwischen Bühne und Publikum) zeigte es an: hier kommt etwas Ungewöhnliches. Nämlich die in fast kompletter Dunkelheit spielenden kanadischen Düsternis-Folk-Rocker von Timber Timbre. Scharfe Konzertfotos zwecklos, hier … #verucasalt #laughinginthesugarbowl #ghostnotes.
