Skating Polly’s New Trick

Skating Polly 3 motel 1024x682 Skating Pollys New TrickSkating Polly‘s New Trick EP featuring Nina Gordon and Louise Post of Veruca Salt drops today via El Camino Media! Produced by legendary producer Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Sunny Day Real Estate, Smashing Pumpkins) New Trick finds Kelli Mayo (17) and Peyton Bighorse (21) joined full-time by brother Kurtis Mayo (20) on drums.

New Trick features three songs they co-wrote and recorded with Veruca Salt’s co-front women. Veruca Salt’s influence is readily apparent: Opener “Louder in Outer Space” boasts addictive hooks cut from the same cloth as “Seether”-era pop, and the dark, brooding “Hail Mary” showcases their knack for writing harmonies. But the raw lyrics and heartfelt ethos are all Skating Polly’s own.” – Seattle Weekly

Ella Fitzgerald – Witchcraft

(click song title above to listen)

We celebrate the centennial of one of the best interpreters of song there ever was, the First Lady of Song, Miss Ella Fitzgerald! This week’s Top Tune was recorded live in Chicago on August 10, 1958 at Mister Kelly’s and features Lou Levy on piano, Max Bennett on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums. This must-hear set was remarkably one of the few live recordings of Fitzgerald captured in a small club.

The tune of course is the classic by Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, the pair of Great American Songbook writers whose marvelous, witty, and sophisticated output also included The Best is Yet to Come, I’ve Got Your Number, I Walk A Little Faster, and The Rules of the Road just to name a few.

Born in Newport News, Virginia on April 25, 1917, Ella in her long and illustrious career won 13 Grammy Awards, A Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Medal of Arts, was inducted in the Down Beat magazine Hall of Fame, and received the Kennedy Center Honors for her contributions to the arts. If you had to pick one album that sums up her magic best, for our money it’s the 11 songs Ella and Louis Armstrong recorded one fine day in 1956 with the Oscar Petersen Quartet. Read all about that masterpiece HERE.

The GRAMMY Museum presents Ella at 100: Celebrating the Artistry of Ella Fitzgerald. The Exhibit opened yesterday and celebrates 100 years of Fitzgerald’s legacy through rare recordings, photos, and one-of-a-kind stage costumes. Click HERE for more info.

Okkervil River – Seven Year Ache

(click song title to listen)

In December of 2013 Okkervil River‘s mastermind Will Sheff funded a short film inspired by the song “Down Down the Deep River” from their lp The Silver Gymnasium. It was the centerpiece of the album and recounts Sheff’s childhood growing up in the very small town of Meriden New Hampshire during the 1980s.

“I wanted to make a short film to dramatize the song and pay homage to children’s science fiction and fantasy adventure films like ‘The Goonies’ and ‘E.T.’ that influenced me as a child”. The dreamlike, 35-minute, nostalgic film uses local actors and features cinematography from Johnny North and production design by Alan Lampert.

Two month’s after the the release of The Silver Gymnasium, the band released a third installment of their Golden Opportunities series featuring an assortment of cover songs. Sheff tried his hand at five tunes dating back to the 1980s including “The End of Innocence” by Don Henley, Cyndi Lauper’s “Money Changes Everything”, “Dance Hall Days” by Wang Chung and this week’s top tune, a sublime take on “Seven Year Ache” by Rosanne Cash.

Okkervil River released their eighth full-length album, Away, in September of 2016 on ATO Records. The album features contributions from Marissa Nadler, Jonathan Meiburg and members of the classical group yMusic. Click HERE for news and upcoming tour dates!
