“Through the years I’ve worked with great singers,” says Lauderdale, “such as China Forbes, Storm Large, Jimmy Scott, Rufus Wainwright, Rita Moreno, the von Trapps. Kathleen is at that caliber. Had she ever considered a career in music instead of political activism, I believe she would be known all around the world, she’s that good. Her phrasing is unlike anyone else’s. Like her political speeches, she means every word she sings. One can’t learn that. You either have it, or you don’t. Kathleen HAS it!”

If Kandace Springs’ new album Indigo sounds like something new, that’s because it is. Simple while funky. Classic but contemporary. Straightforward in the way it breaks down complex ideas and genres. And, at the end of the day, undeniably human. That said, it isn’t quite a rebirth for the Nashville-born artist, who after stints living in New York and Los Angeles has returned back home to Music City. She’s long had that lithe and smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano. For those paying attention, Kandace’s second album finds her unleashing what was there all along, all at once, for the first time.

With Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance, the men behind Bob Moses, touring relentlessly since the release of Days Gone By, no new music arrived for the better part of three years. The group’s first new track, titled “Heaven Only Knows,” came out in May 2018. Influential radio station KCRW featured the song, hailing its “classic songwriting with slinky guitar work and an EDM beat.” An announcement of the duo’s sophomore album, Battle Lines, arrived shortly thereafter, as did two other tracks, “Enough to Believe,” and lead single “Back Down.”

Arriving a year after 2017’s Out in the Storm — Waxahatchee’s most defiant album of her first four — the Great Thunder EP offers a drastic contrast to its predecessor’s crunchy, full-band indie rock. Presenting Katie Crutchfield’s sparest material since her 2012 Waxahatchee debut, the EP’s six tracks were selected from the handful of releases she wrote and performed as half of Great Thunder, her duo with onetime Swearin’ bassist and Waxahatchee touring drummer Keith Spencer. She reworks the songs here, stripping down arrangements to minimal piano or, in two cases, guitar, with occasional light touches of electronic keyboards, bass, and percussion. The opening track, “Singer’s No Star,” opts for simple piano chords and a few backing vocals as accompaniment. The song was taken from Great Thunder’s final release, The Great Thunder Radiator Hospital Wedding Album, which was home-recorded in 2014 with Radiator Hospital’s Sam Cook-Parrott. The original version, while still warm and wistful, was delivered via a full-band arrangement that included multiple guitar solos as well as lead vocals by Cook-Parrott. Crutchfield’s redo essentially moves the song from the garage of a group of Big Star disciples into the living room of a singer/songwriter with affection-infused grievances. It should be noted that these are not home recordings; rather, the EP was tracked at Justin Vernon’s April Base studios in Wisconsin with Megafaun’s Brad Cook. Nevertheless, imperfect, immediate performances, along with melodies that sometimes push Crutchfield into her upper range, intensify the raw intimacy of the EP and the vulnerability inherent in most of the songs. Over the course of Great Thunder, her voice seems to more naturally complement the guitar, and the guitar entries “Chapel of Pines” and “Slow You Down” are among the EP’s highlights, also offering its most fleshed-out arrangements. Lacking the intensity of her main catalog, Great Thunder plays out more like an addendum that an essential Waxahatchee recording, but the songs are still worth discovery.

These days, it’s hard to imagine Van Halen being described as an opening act or an unsigned band. But back in 1976, the heavy metal/hard rock combo was, in fact, the opening act when U.F.O. headlined the Golden West Ballroom in Norwalk, CA (a Los Angeles suburb). At that point, Van Halen had yet to sign with Warner Bros. or become internationally famous, although it was a hot local attraction in Southern California and could easily fill West Hollywood clubs like the Starwood and the Whiskey-a-Go-Go. Another term you often heard in connection with them in those days was “cover band”; Van Halen was writing a lot of original material in 1976, but many of its gigs required some covers. This was true of the headbangers’ opening set for U.F.O., which is the focus of this bootleg CD. With David Lee Roth singing lead, they deliver an inspired set that ranges from original gems (“On Fire,” “Somebody Get Me a Doctor,” and “I’m the One”) to covers of Led Zeppelin’s “The Rover,” Aerosmith’s “Last Child,” and ZZ Top’s “Tush.” Collectors will be thrilled to know that Golden West Ballroom: Live 1976 was taped from the venue’s soundboard and offers very good sound quality, and that several of the tunes are rare originals that never made it to any of Van Halen’s official studio albums (including “Let Me Swim in Your Ocean,” “Let’s Get Rockin’,” and “We Die Young”). Throughout the set, they come across as inspired and extremely promising, if undeveloped — in 1976, the Angelinos had yet to receive the guidance that Warner Bros.’ A&R department would provide. But despite its imperfections, this bootleg is fascinating if you’re a serious Van Halen collector.
