A Cold Cold Cold Nugget

I've been breathing air but there's no sign of life...Cage the Elephant - Cold Cold Cold 

How did I miss this song?  It is from 2015's Cage the Elephant album Tell Me I'm Pretty (produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys).  I heard this on the radio recently and initially thought it was an oldie from one of those 60's Nuggets album.  It sounds like a garage rock classic from that era. The video is a little weird, but what a great song!

The Poetry of Ray Davies

Now I'm on the fire of desire and the mystery, crying, oh but I ask where is the poetry?...Ray Davies - Poetry 

A couple of classic artists, Ray Davies (of The Kinks) and The Jayhawks have teamed up for a really great new Ray Davies album, Americana.  The song Poetry is a real standout on the album.
