Sam Phillips – Edge of the World

(click song title above to listen)

This week’s Top Tune is one of our all-time favorite songs of Sam’s live set and comes from her ninth studio album and first for Nonesuch Records, 2001′s Fan Dance. Produced by T Bone Burnett and featuring another round of sterling musicianship by the likes of Van Dyke Parks, Marc Ribot, Jim Keltner, and Gillian Welch, the stripped-down album was praised as creating a quietly riveting tension and one of the best of her career.

If you’re in L.A. this weekend, don’t miss Sam sharing a stage and a band in a rare co-headlining gig with Joe Henry at Largo At The Coronet. Saturday February 21. Showtimes are 8p and 10:30p, for tickets and info click HERE.

“Anyone who’s ever seen Sam Phillips live can’t help but be struck by what a world of ideas and emotions she communicates with what seems so little: a raised eyebrow, a focused glance, a sly smile, an ever-so-subtle turn of her head. Above all, there’s her green eyes wide open, as she appears to expand them to their physical limit to take in everyone and everything within their panoramic view.” – Randall Roberts, Los Angeles Times.

Jenny O. – Sun Moon and Stars

If you bring the clouds and the rain
And the whole world in flames
And you’re bleeding
And someone comes looking for trouble
I will cover you.
I’ll make headlines when I follow through
Go on and lay it on me.

This week’s Top Tune is a I-got-your-back/love-over-fear stunner which closes out Jenny O.’s critically acclaimed album, Automechanic.

“everything for Jenny O. seems to be purring like, well, a freshly tuned engine in the hands of a fine mechanic. – Steve Hochman, Los Angeles Times.

Come see Jenny live this weekend, Oct 5th & 6th at Newport Folk Presents: Way Over Yonder 2013. Santa Monica Pier with Conor Oberst, Neko Case, Brett Dennen, First Aid Kit and many more.
