The Word July 2006 Now Hear This! CD

The shy and soft-spoken Neil Young is on the cover of the latest issue of The Word, which as usual includes a free CD...

The Word July 2006 Now Hear This! CD Track Listing:

1. Frank Black - Johnny Barleycorn
2. James Hunter - People Gonna Talk (available on People Gonna Talk). This swinging soul/R&B tune is from Hunter's third album, released earlier this year, but it sounds straight from the 60s.
3. Camille - La Jeune Fille Aux Cheveux Blancs (available on Le Fil). Former Nouvelle Vague singer Camille sings of a girl with white hair as backing vocals harmonize.
4. Quinn - Slowmotion Smile (available on Luss, out since June 5th in the UK, might be hard to find in the US). Nifty song highlighting the band's languid-voiced singer (guitarist/vocalist Louise Quinn) and incorporating turntable-scratching, a stop-start rhythm, a trumpet, and handclapping.
5. John Cale - Paris 1919
6. Unkle Bob - Too Many People
7. Stephen Yerkey - My Baby Love The Western Violence
8. Catherine Feeny - I Still Don't Believe You
9. Dave Alvin - Kern River
10. Ed Harcourt - Shadowboxing (available on The Beautiful Lie). Moody, deliberate.
11. Nerina Pallot - Idaho
12. Scott Matthews - Elusive
13. Camera Obscura - Tears For Affairs (available on Let's Get Out Of This Country). Sweetly stylized retro alt-pop.
14. Townes Van Zandt - Waitin' Round To Die
