A feather’s not a bird
The rain is not the sea
A stone is not a mountain
But a river runs through me
“A Feather’s Not a Bird” Rosanne Cash
A quick reminder that Great River Radio is back this afternoon with a bundle of songs for you, mostly new, but a couple of discoveries that have been spinning on my player the last four weeks. Do you know Goldfrapp? Do you want to hear something sexy that will warm you up on a cold winter night? That’s all I’m going to say about that. I’ve been digging the songwriter Peter Bradley Adams and have played him before. He has a new record, as does the very interesting Damien Jurado, local friends Jeremy Messersmith and Erik Koskinen. Then there will be the department of covers and remakes with Charlotte Gainsbourg doing “Hey Joe” (you’ve got to hear it) and Band of Horses doing an acoustic live at the Ryman version of “No One’s Gonna Love You” and a remastered “Comes and Goes In Waves” from Greg Laswell.
And of course, my favorite record of the year so far, Rosanne Cash’s The River & The Thread – the first track from that album will also open GRR today. Finally, I have the first musical harbinger of spring, thanks to Mike, from the John Butler Trio.
If you live in the upper Midwest, you’re going to want to take some time to listen this afternoon or later for a break from the cold and snow and the coming storm.
I’ll be getting things going around 4:00 – listen this afternoon or later when the snow is coming down.
