Song Of The Day: His Name Is Alive, “How Ghosts Affect Relationships”

Taken from the release Black Wings.

The Mavericks: All Night Live, Volume 1 (Mono Mundo Recordings)

It’s a bold move to be a veteran band with a two decades-long reputation of being a helluva live band to release a live album of strictly new songs, but Raul Malo’s long-running band The Mavericks has done just that. But don’t worry, these new songs have quickly earned their place among the band’s classic material.

Jimmy Somerville: Live And Acoustic At Stella Polaris (SFE/Cherry Red)

It might seem unusual for a man who specializes in dance music to perform acoustically, but the setting provides the opportunity to highlight Jimmy Somerville’s greatest asset: his amazingly natural falsetto. This album captures that moment, in a brief but highly enjoyable performance.

Once again we invoke the power to go contemporary, and this time, it’s the impressive new single from a band we’ve always been impressed by.

3AM Eternal: Kamasi Washington “Re Run Home” (2015)

One of the best tracks from what is easily one of the best albums of the year, Kamasi Washington’s epic debut The Epic is a massive journey into space jazz.
