Ric Ocasek is back in the producer’s chair for Weezer’s latest, and it sounds absolutely great. This tune is a mission statement if there ever was one.

Yes, I’m inflicting another Bob Schneider video on you, because it totally rocks, and his explanation of the inspiration for the song is really funny too.

NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert: Jackson Browne

A debt that I owe, on a bet that I lost
Music • Views: 17,141

Jackson Browne’s early albums were the soundtrack to my teenage years, and this NPR Tiny Desk Concert shows him still evoking the themes that touched my heart all those years ago, with an excellent band as always.

My admiration for Jackson Browne began with his first album in 1971. I was wowed by the fact that the singer-songwriter had worked with Nico of Velvet Underground fame — his girlfriend at the time — on her first album, Chelsea Girl. He wrote one of my favorite songs on that record, “These Days.”

More than 40 years on, my appreciation continues to grow. Browne still writes songs with conviction and craftsmanship and careful attention to detail. At the same time, there’s a perceptible loosening of attitude: His Tiny Desk Concert performance isn’t perfect, his heart showing through every crack in his voice.

Browne can be seen out and about in other informal settings besides this one. At the Newport Folk Festival a few years ago, you could hear him play formally and informally with Tom Morello, Conor Oberst, Dawes and more. Back home on the West Coast, he might just sit in when Sara and Sean Watkins put on theirWatkins Family Hour variety show at Largo.

This week, Jackson Browne turns 66 and releases his 14th album, Standing In The Breach. It’s a record that fully captures his rare ability to mix activism with poetry: His stature allows him freedom — he’s largely free of obligations — with the ability to play comfortably with musicians of his own choosing. Yet he continues to stretch, working alongside much younger players with different talents and interests, sharing his talents and finding inspiration. It’s that passion for playing and exploring that brings Browne to things like the Tiny Desk Concert, an awkwardly intimate setting for such a popular performer. — BOB BOILEN

Sunday Night Jam: Bob Schneider on Austin City Limits, “Bullets”

With a massively funky horn section, here’s a good quality video of Bob Schneider on Austin City Limits more years ago than I like to admit, tearing it up with a live version of “Bullets.”

This episode of Austin City Limits was the first time I heard Bob doin’ his thang, and it turned me into a life-long fan.

Creepy Thursday Night Jam: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, “Red Right Hand”

One microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan
Music • Views: 27,135

YouTube

This is a classic from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, a disturbing little ditty about a tall handsome man with a red right hand. I didn’t even know there was a video for this one until today, but it’s as unsettling as the song.

Take a little walk to the edge of town
Go across the tracks where the viaduct looms
Like a bird of doom as it shifts and cracks
Where secrets lie in the border fires, in the humming wires
Hey man, you know you’re never coming back
Past the square, past the bridge, past the mills, past the stacks
On a gathering storm, comes a tall handsome man
In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

He’ll wrap you in his arms
Tell you that you’ve been a good boy
He’ll rekindle all the dreams it took you a lifetime to destroy
He’ll reach deep into the hole heal your shrinking soul
Hey buddy, you know you’re never ever coming back
He’s a god, he’s a man, he’s a ghost, he’s a guru
They’re whispering his name through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat is a red right hand

You don’t own no money? He’ll get you some
You don’t have no car? He’ll get you one
You don’t have no self-respect
You feel like an insect
Well don’t you worry buddy ‘cause here he comes
Through the ghettos and the barrio and the bowery and the slum
A shadow is cast wherever he stands
Stacks of green paper in his red right hand

You’ll see him in your nightmares
You’ll see him in your dreams
He’ll appear out of nowhere but he ain’t what he seems
You’ll see him in your head, on a TV screen
And hey buddy, I’m warning you to turn it off
He’s a ghost, he’s a god, he’s a man, he’s a guru
You’re one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by his red right hand

If there's ever an obscene noise to be made on an instrument, it's gonna come out of a guitar! On a sax you can play sleaze, on a bass you can play balls. But on a guitar you can be truly obscene! Lets be realistic about this, the guitar can be the single most blasphemous device on earth! The guitar makes a stink noise. That's why I like it!!
