01. Henry’s Essential Listening

“Hello Rhinofy & Spotify subscribers! I am going to make you play lists that I hope you will really dig. Stay tuned! – Henry This week’s Essential Listening – Great Post Punk” (rhino)

02. Nick Lowe On World Cafe

“English singer-songwriter Nick Lowe’s reputation often precedes him. He wrote hits “So It Goes,” “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?” and “Cruel to Be Kind,” produced Elvis Costello’s legendary first five albums, collaborated extensively with his wife’s stepfather Johnny Cash and nurtured a well-respected solo career. Lowe is a consistently significant figure in country, rock, punk and new wave, and has left his signature on a range of records in his wake of forty years in the business.” (npr)

03. Barn Owl – Turiya

“The Reason(s) We Can’t Stop Listening: While Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras seem to release a new solo record every couple months—or in some cases, every couple weeks—Barn Owl’s latest full-length may be their finest hour yet. With their windswept sound now rounded out by organ drones, ungodly gongs, death march drums and mangled tape manipulations, the Bay Area duo’s arrived at a wildly expressive sound that can easily switch between charred power chords (the Sunn O)))-like “The Darkest Night Since 1683″) and majestic flourishes of moonlit melodies and feedback (“Light Echoes”). Definitely a contender for our year-end charts.” (self-titled)
