In Tuesday’s Metro is an interview with Jim James from My Morning Jacket, featured in their “On My iPod” column. Here’s his six-track mix:
Come Get To This by Marvin Gaye
This is a strange song. Marvin sings about fineries while the saddest strings play in the background and some dude wails on sax.
Summer Never Ends by John Callahan
This song is a sweet little psychadelic dream puff. I feel like I’m on a little cloud listening to an old piano and Callahan’s soothing voice is wafting through an endless summer.
My Kind of People by Cee-Lo
I always bring this out in Summertime. It has a classic big barbeque-party feel to it and Cee-Lo really shines. It makes me want to hang out with all my favourite people down by a river.
Mean Old World by Sam Cooke With The Soul Stirrers
A great old-timey classic that’s right up there with Stand By me. ‘This is a mean old world to live in by yourself,’ Sam sings.
Soldier by Erykah Badu
This is one of the most hypnotic songs I’ve ever heard. A sweet flute loop carries you over an intense beat. Is she talking about Obama? Is she talking about the war? Is she talking about equality? Maybe it’s all rolled up into one? I like how mysterious the song is.
Tanguedia III by Astor Piazzolla
This is from the album Tango: Zero Hour, which is like one long song. It’s like being trapped inside a clock and runing along the moving gears towards a beautiful maiden in distress, trying not to get crushed as an angry mob chases you.
