Skating Polly – Alabama Movies

This week’s Top Tune comes from the newest members of the Notable family, the grungy riot grrrl excellence of Oklahoma-based duo Skating Polly. The group is comprised of sister duo Kelli Mayo (14) and Peyton Bighorse (19) who at a very young age have already shared stages and collaborated on albums with the likes of Exene Cevenka of X (who produced their sophomore album), Kliph Scurlock of The Flaming Lips, Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening, Mike Watt, Deerhoof, and Band of Horses.

“Alabama Movies” is the lead song from the new album Fuzz Steilacoom and was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studios in Olympia, WA and at Hook Echo Sound in Norman, OK. You can hear and watch the duo in all of their explosive & fuzzy ugly-pop glory in the amazing video for the track HERE.

Compared in sound to a younger Savages or a new age Bikini Kill, the sisters have been influenced by large doses of ’70′s punk rock and early-’90s alt-rock and mine inspiration from artists ranging from Johnny Cash and the Beatles, to NWA and Regina Spektor. The Riot Grrrl movement is a strong influence on this album’s creation with plenty of playfully aggression-fueled performances but also showcases Skating Polly’s sensitive and melodic side on poignant tracks like, “A Little Late”. You can hear much of the album being spun currently by legendary Los Angeles DJ, Rodney Bingenheimer on KROQ‘s Rodney on the Roq show (a dream come true for the band).

Do yourself a favor and catch this duo live in concert, you won’t regret it!

Rosanne Cash – Burn Down This Town

The clapboard jail and the co-op board
The garden club and the bedroom door
The sprinkled lawn and the mirrored hall
The Christmas tree
Just burn it all

“Burn Down This Town” – from Rosanne Cash’s Grammy nominated, critically acclaimed Black Cadillac – is a track filled with a perfect mix of attitude and grace. The sentimental urgency of the song, co-written by Rosanne and her producer/guitarist/husband John Leventhal, captivates from the first listen. Black Cadillac – billed by her label as a “12 song musical memoir” – was a fitting tribute to her mother, father and stepmother, all who passed within a two-year span during the writing and recording of this album. Rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone and Newsweek – among so many others – hailed the album as being Rosanne’s greatest work to date.

In February of this year Rosanne was presented with the 2012 AFTRA Media and Entertainment Excellence Award, an annual gala taking place in New York where talent in television, film and broadcasting communities are honored. Rosanne also recently shared the stage at the Brady Theater in Tulsa, OK at the Woody Guthrie Centennial Tribute with the likes of the Flaming Lips, Arlo Guthrie, Jackson Browne, John Mellencamp, Taylor Hansen and more.

Last month, Rosanne held a one-week “digital residency” on AOL’s The Boot music site – each day premiering an exclusive video from fan requested set list, titled Live from Zone C. An intimate performance recorded entirely in the living room of her New York City home to celebrate the release of the 2-disc anthology, The Essential Rosanne Cash.

Oh, and if you don’t already follow Rosanne’s tweets, we strongly suggest you do. You won’t be sorry: @rosannecash

Check out this great performance of “Burn Down This Town” from the BBC’s Jools Holland Show.
