This Week’s New River Music

Title: Cringe
Artist: Matt Maeson  
Album: Cringe – Single
Released: 2018
You may think this song seems familiar, and that’s because it its! We played the stripped (acoustic) version of this song this past winter. Since then, the label has re-worked the song to a slightly different, more River-friendly version (non-stripped), and that’s what we’re now playing! We hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Title: Mansion Door
Artist: Shakey Graves
Album: Can’t Wake Up
Released: 2018
Shakey Graves eal name: Alejandro Rose-Garcia. From his spring 2018 album Can’t Wake Up, this is a single he describes as his “love song to mid-late 90s indie music”. He’ll be at the House of Blues September 19th – tickets are still on sale!

Title: Shame
Artist: Elle King
Album: Shame – Single
Released: 2018
She talked about her inspiration for the title of the single with Billboard: “I hung out with people when I moved to L.A. that were an older version of, I don’t know, my bad side. If I imagined the devil on my shoulder, grown up, I was hanging out with a bunch of them. It’s undeniable fun — you just have to know when to know when to go home and go to bed. “Shame” was kind of a fun way to spin some of last year: You see the bad kids and you kind of want to party with them”. She hopes it’s a dance song; “I do like seeing people dance at shows. I don’t know what’s going to happen with this song, but I have high hopes. I think it’s a fun way to be like, “Hey, I’m back, and I can make you dance, and I can make you move.”

Title: Unwanted Number
Artist: Elvis Costello & The Imposters
Album: Unwanted Number – Single
Released: 2018
Elvis was diagnosed with a small but aggressive cancer in early summer. He had  surgery and is optimistic, but he’s had to cancel his summer European tour dates. He still plans to release the album in October and at this point still plans to make his fall tour dates, including the Wang on November 10th.  Fingers crossed. This is from the album Look Now due in October.  Elvis wrote the song a few decades ago and For Real covered it for the “Grace Of My Heart’ soundtrack.  This recording -and the whole album – is Elvis with The Imposters. A couple of the  songs on the new album were co-written by his sometimes-collaborator Burt Bacharach (who also guests appears, though not on this song).
