Karen Elson is famous as a supermodel and for being married to Jack White, but she is also a force to be reckoned with as a musical artist. Her debut record, The Ghost Who Walks, was released this week and is a beautifully haunting collection of love and betrayal. White's production is timeless and these songs are great for late night listening.

Heartstopper from Fisherman's Woman.
Has everyone had an opportunity to enjoy Pandora Internet Radio? I am a crazy addict to it, and listen to my channels continually. It's even an app on my cell phone, so I can listen when I'm out and about.
One of the best parts of Pandora is the suggesting of artists that you might not have heard before whom the programmers at Pandora think you might appreciate due to your taste in music. Emiliana Torrini is one such artist. Because she comes up fairly regularly on three of my programmed channels (Jason Mraz, Feist, and Madeleine Peyroux), I've become a new fan. It doesn't always happen, though. John Mayer shows up all the time on other channels. I've still not a fan.
It's been a while since we've done any lists, so I'm putting it out to you: pretend you're one of the whizzes at Pandora. Pick an artist as the basis for your favorite kind of music and then suggest to other LNMCers some other artists that may not heard of that fall into the same kind of category.
We are very excited today because we're fortunate enough to have the legendary rocker Peter Frampton joining us for a Special Live Chat so he can discuss his brand new single "Road To The Sun," from his album entitled Thank You Mr Churchill.
“This album is very autobiographical. It starts with my birth, in which I thank Mr. Churchill for bringing my father back from the Second World War,” says Frampton of his new set. “I woke up one morning and I wondered what would have happened if Winston Churchill hadn’t been at the helm and the British and the Allies had not won. Would my dad have not come back? Would I be here? Probably not.”
What makes this new single even more unique is that his son Julian co-wrote the song and accompanies his father with some fine vocals. And it's no surprise that Julian is musically gifted as well.
Mr Churchill also features Frampton’s first recorded collaboration with his son Julian. Frampton says, “Julian started off playing drums. Then one day he played me a song on guitar and he blew me away. He’s now 21 and over the past few years, he’s become a terrific writer. He’s an amazing lyricist, great singer, and a wonderful guitarist. He inspires me. “We’d always wanted to write something together that he could sing and we could put on an album. So we wrote two songs and it was one of the best experiences of my life. “Chris [Kimsey] heard the demo of ‘Road to the Sun’ with Julian singing and said, ‘Who’s that?’ I told him, ‘That’s my son, Julian.’ He said, ‘He’s gotta be on the album.’ Julian’s vocal is the live vocal, it’s take one.
Logan Murphy writes:
This past January, we did a post about Peter's battles with some rather unsavory folks on his Facebook page and many C&Lers came to his rescue. Since that time, the brave Mr. Frampton has been out on tour in support of his new album and I am thrilled that he is here giving us some of his precious time to chat. Thank you and welcome, Peter!
The video on today's post is entitled "Invisible Man" from Thank You Mr Churchill and features the incredible Funk Brothers. The video for "Road to the Sun" is premiering online very soon.
So without further ado, I'd like to welcome Peter and Julian to the Crooks & Liars and the pages of our Late Nite Music Club. Please join us for a special live chat.
Last night it was politicians in eyes, tonight it's police on backs. Before he scored a massive hit with "Electric Avenue', Eddie Grant founded The Equals. The Clash covered this song in the late 70's, but I really like the original version by this radical, racially mixed group. Rock it.
Are you familiar with Death? If not, you should be. This mid 70's band of three Detroit brothers remained largely undiscovered until 2009 when Drag City released the album ...For The Whole World To See. Their story is amazing and I highly recommend the New York Times article that I have linked below. Enjoy.
Carl Belew and W.S. Stevenson wrote this song about just being downright sick of the world and needing to escape. Many people-including Patsy Cline and Dwight Yoakam- have recorded it, but Waylon's treatment is my favorite. This version was released on the album Folk Country in 1966 and was one of the first chapters of the tenuous creative partnership between the outlaw and the countrypolitan Chet Atkins. Yee-Haw!
A couple of years ago I stumbled into a small record store in Frankfurt, Germany where I bought an album called Negro Prison Songs. Upon returning home, I was blown away by the sounds coming from my speakers. Recorded by Alan Lomax in 1947 at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman Farm, these songs are eerie reminders of the brutal experience that many suffered at the hands of the southern penal system.
"These songs belong to the musical tradition which Africans brought to the New World, but they are also as American as the Mississippi River. They were born out of the very rock and earth of this country, as black hands broke the soil, moved, reformed it, and rivers of stinging sweat poured upon the land under the blazing heat of Southern skies, and are mounted upon the passion that this struggle with nature brought forth. They tell us the story of the slave gang, the sharecropper system, the lawless work camp, the chain gang, the pen." --Alan Lomax
PS. Our sister site Newstalgia has for its Backstage Weekend offering, Moby, Live at Glastonbury, 1988.
Here is a week in the life of modern day butt-rockers The Darkness, according to this song off of their debut release Permission To Land:

So if you are to follow their lead, it's time to shake your booties. Ya'll enjoy the weekend. Any big plans?
I'm a big fan of Will Oldham/Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, and his 2005 collaboration with guitarist Matt Sweeney is one of my favorite records of the last decade. Sweeney's brilliant guitar playing compliments Oldham's broken voice perfectly throughout, and Superwolf is arguably the bearded one's strongest set of songs since 1998's I See A Darkness. Tonight, ya'll get two songs for the price of one.
It's way hot here in Nashville today and I spent the morning on a brutal 18.5 mile training run. During this run through hell, I was trying to think of songs with the word 'hot' in the title so I could post it here tonight. This song off of the Flying Burrito Brothers' album, The Gilded Palace Of Sin, ultimately won out even though the subject matter has nothing to do with actual heat. Oh well, it's just too good of a song to worry about being thematically correct. What's your favorite 'heat' song?
