Bobby Hebb – I’ll Be Anything For You

(click song title above to listen)

It was Bobby Hebb‘s personal outpouring of grief over his divorce that’s been said to have fueled the beauty, anguish, and wistful hope displayed on his quietly influential 1970 album, Love Games.

“I’ll Be Anything For You” with an incredible arrangement by James Fleming and Dave Roberts, seeks to close that deal. The Love Games album came four years after Bobby Hebb’s monster 8 million selling single multi-format classic, “Sunny”, and a full two years before similar work by Gamble & Huff & The O’Jays. It would provide the template for the direction R&B would take through the late 70′s and early 80′s, music that one keeps for special moods, private times, and most of all, as David Morpheus points out on the original liner notes, for times perhaps when one is not in love at the moment but should be.

Tift Merritt – My Boat

(click song title above to listen)

No one will be denied on my boat, on my boat
No getting ahead or falling behind on my boat, on my boat
Just having a real big time on my boat on my boat
No one will be denied on my boat, on my boat, on my boat

On her new album Stitch of the World, Tift Merritt adapts the lyrics of this week’s stunner of a top tune from the late, great short-story writer Raymond Carver. His poem “My Boat” was written in Port Angeles in the spring of 1984. There will be room for all his friends on this boat, no one will be denied. With Carver’s All of Us: The Collected Poems in hand, this poem for Tift “leapt up like lightning”. Its message of kinship and inclusion is offered in a time of great division in our country and “it makes it just a little bit easier to believe that scars do heal and love soldiers on”. – Slant Magazine.

Check out a lovely intimate performance of the song at Paste Studios in NYC with mister Eric Heywood on guitar HERE.

Skating Polly – Cosmetic Skull

(click song title above to listen)

And I’ll just be your mud rug, my dear.
And I’ll keep writing little headaches for your ears.

When Skating Polly finished their record The Big Fit, they had a goal to make a video for every song on the album. “Cosmetic Skull” rounds out the 12th and final video for the album and it’s been an impressive and inspiring adventure watching each tale take shape! Starting with first pre-album release single “Nothing More Than A Body” in May 2015 (the sneering, eponymous track was written as an existential response to meeting long-time idol Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel), to the L7 anthem-like “Perfume For Now” in February of last year (their first after relocating to Tacoma Washington from Oklahoma) to this week’s Top Tune. The latest video marks their 7th collaboration with director Dave Smith from the album and you can check ‘em all out here:

Cosmetic Skull – March 2017 (dir Dave Smith)

The band has just announced a full spring tour in support of their upcoming EP New Trick (coming April 28 via El Camino Media). We cannot wait to share it, all songs were recorded and co-written with a pair of their musical heroes, Nina Gordon and Louise Post of Veruca Salt! The EP was produced by Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Sunny Day Real Estate) and as Peyton explains “This was the first time we were able to work as a full band and I think it really just opened up this new level for us in the sense that we were able to add other elements and make things sound bigger than they had in the past”. In that spirit the band recently added Kelli Mayo’s brother Kurtis who has joined the band on drums. Dig it!
