Donnie & Joe Emerson - Baby (1979)

Pacific Northwest isolation mixed with wide-eyed ambition, a strong sense of family and the gift of music proved to be quite the combination for teenage brothers Donnie and Joe Emerson. Originally released in 1979, Dreamin’ Wild is the sonic vision of the talented Emerson boys, recorded in a family built home studio in rural Washington State. Situated in the unlikely blink-and-you-missed-it town of Fruitland and far removed from the late 1970s punk movement and the larger disco boom, Donnie and Joe tilled their own musical soil, channeling bedroom pop jams, raw funk, and yacht rock.

“Baby (featuring Dâm-Funk)” by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti // Mature Themes (Out 8.21.12 on 4AD)

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti is back with a follow-up to 2010’s excellent “Before Today”. The new album, titled “Mature Themes” is the album that Ariel Rosenberg claims (to Spin) that he wanted to make back when he was making “Before Today” but couldn’t do to “pressures and different factors”. The first taste from the new album is actually a cover of a 1979 track by Donnie and Joe Emerson called “Baby” that features guest vocals by Dâm-Funk. It’s a straight on cover with no real change ups from the original, but that’s all right because the original is itself a slice of smoothed out AM pop with a little soul tossed in for good measure. Just the kind music that Ariel Pink has sort of perfected these last couple of years. You can also check out upcoming tour dates from Ariel and his crew.
