Richard Hawley – Tonight The Streets Are Ours

Former pulp guitarist’s latest single is a fairground walk in a mild tempered summer night.     I love the choir backing vocals on this track.

Devotchka – Somethin’ Stupid

I love, love this cover of Frank Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra’s “Somethin’ Stupid”.       Devotchka pulls it off with a Johnny Cash swagger with Mexican infused instrumentation.   This track can be found on the EP from Devotchka titled, “Curse Your Little Heart”
