Ed Ryan / Even Time
We got Even Time about a week ago, in advance of Ed Ryan’s new long-player of the same name. A swell piece of pop landing somewhere between George Harrison’s Photograph (Yes, I know he wrote it for Ringo) and Paul Carrack’s Don’t Shed A Tear. Play this one in the car with the windows rolled down!
Sara Evans / Don’t Get Me Wrong
From her new release featuring covers of her favorite songs, Copy That. It starts out a bit clunky, compared to the original version, then rights itself to become enjoyable. No serious complaints here, it’s hard not to love a Chrissie Hynde tune, and this one sounds cool.
Jerry Woods / Inconsequential People
This track finds Jerry Woods in power pop mode, which is a really fine place for him to be. Driving guitar chords evoke a similar vibe to Tom Petty’s Change Of Heart, making this rocker a prime candidate for your summer mixtape (or reasonable facsimile).
