Joan As Police Woman
aka Joan Wasser took a long time coming before releasing her solo album. She was in bands like The Dambuilders, Black Beetle and Those Bastard Souls. When her boyfriend Jeff Buckley tragically drowned she found cure in playing violin in Antony & The Johnsons and working with Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Sheryl Crow, Sparklehorse and Dave Gahan. Since 2006 the New York based musician has released four albums so far.
Off the album «I'm Still In Love With You». So many good records from 1972. «Talking Book» by Stevie Wonder, «America Eats It's Young» by Funkadelic, «On The Corner» by Miles Davis, «Harvest» by Neil Young, «Space Is The Place» by Sun Ra. I am always in a 1972 mood.
Off the album «Live: The Mongoloid Years».
Off the album «Think Tank».
That voice just makes me want to get close.
Off the «Deep Cuts» album.
The father of rock'n'roll.
Off the album «Fresh».
Because with Iggy, you decide whether he is being ironic or not, depending on your mood. A good place to be when there is a lot of pressure, gotta remember that ultimately, it is just like any other day.
This was the first club show I saw when I was 15 and I was changed forever.
Flying through the night is what Nas is to me. You will not fall asleep, he's just too good.
Off the album «Spirit In The Dark».
But I could make love to almost any music. Music turns me on.
Off «Merriweather Post Pavilion». This music sounds like this act so why not?
The rest of this record («Wit's End») is just as astounding. Cass is my favorite living songwriter that follows in the story-telling Dylan tradition but doesn't sound a thing like him.
No fear with PE.
Adam & The Ants was the first concert I saw at 14. Shit still gets me off.
Off the LP «All By Hisself (Live At The Lonestar)». Listening to Dr. John play and sing and just exist makes me want to cut that internet surfing short and play music myself. It's never better than with that kind of energy, that kind of expertise and comfort, it ruins any attempt at staring at a screen.
Off the «Court And Spark» album. So clean, so clear, so comfortable. Makes you want to be awake.
