Ferraro‘s Favorite Music Discoveries:
Paul Simon – Still Crazy After All These Years
Admittedly late to the Paul Simon party, I’m just now discovering his catalog. This tune immediately stood out as a favourite.
Tobias Jesso Jr – How Could You Babe
First heard this song over the PA at a festival and had to Shazam it. Now it’s a memory of festivals and better days.
Dion & The Belmonts – Runaround Sue
A classic tune that we used to cover quite often. Never have we filled up a dancefloor as easily as placing this one in a set.
Sameer Cash – Stay in Touch
Our pal Sam delivered an important message, ‘stay in touch with your mother!’
1000 Times – Hamilton Leithauser
This song is as good as his last name is hard to spell.
You ever restart a song before it even ends, because it’s just that good!
San Francisco – Jane’s Party
A must have road trip tune!
Carolina Drama – The Raconteurs
I love a song that tells a story.
Lousy Connection – Ezra Furman
When I first heard this song I listened to it on repeat about 100 times. Something about the horn lines and Ezra’s wailing voice in the chorus that just hits in the right place. It takes the old 50’s retro sound and makes it sound completely new.
Shine on Me – Dan Auerbach
Great song for driving with the window’s down on a summer day. Dan is one of my favourite songwriters and this song gives me a very George Harrison vibe, so you can’t really go wrong. Also the opening line makes me laugh.
Own Alone – Bahamas
First release off of an album with my favourite name of all albums, Sad Hunk. Very smooth but still upbeat which Bahamas does in such an effortless way. Also has one of the most unique guitar solos I’ve heard in awhile.
