unnamed-6 Justice: Woman
Justice’s new album “Woman” is a journey that catapults you from the elastic R&B pop of “Pleasure” straight into the rush of “Alakazam!”. Twirls through a dazzling bout of thumping electronic piano and clavinet sparring during “Fire”‘s dancefloor peacocking, barely pausing for breath before it lands at “Stop” – a sparkling, bittersweet slice of disco pop that boasts one of the best chorus the pair have ever had on a track. “Randy” has a melody Michael McDonald would have killed a fellow Doobie Brother for (if Michael McDonald was into gut-shuddering electro that is). “Love S.O.S”, meanwhile, sounds like the greatest disco anthem you’ve never heard.


unnamed-7Robert Earl Keen: LIVE Dinner Reunion

Floore’s Country Store, in the beautiful hill country of Helotes, Texas.

When darkness falls
May it be
That we should see the light

When reaper calls
May it be
That we walk straight and right

When doubt returns
May it be
That faith shall permeate our scars

When we’re seduced
Then may it be
That we not deviate our cause

All sinners, a future
All saints, a past
Beginning, the ending
Return to ash

Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can be together
Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can live forever

When all is pain
May it be
It’s all we’ve ever known

When flame consumes
May it be
It warms our dying bones

When loss has won
May it be
It’s you I’m madly fighting for

When Kingdom comes
May it be
We walk right through that open door

All sinners, a future
All saints, a past
Beginning, the ending
Return to ash

Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can be together
Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can live forever

All sinners, a future
All saints, a past
Beginning, the ending
Return to ash

Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can be together
Now that we’re dead, my dear
We can live, we can live forever

Return to ashes, shed this skin
Beyond the black, we rise again
We shall live forever
~ Fucking Metallica
