One Track Mind: Chicago featuring Les Deux Love Orchestra, “More Today Than Yesterday” (2013)

One Track Mind: Chicago featuring Les Deux Love Orchestra, “More Today Than Yesterday” (2013)

There are probably more than a few people who thought this No. 12 1969 hit by the Spiral Starecase was a Chicago song anyway. But it sure is a strange way to advance a long-awaited new album project.

One Track Mind: Serpent and Seraph, “Tears of Niviane” from Under Darkened Skies (2013)

I try my best not to judge an album by its cover or a band by its name. But every now and then one of those things catches my attention.

One Track Mind: The Beefeaters, “Don’t Hurt Me / Change My Mind” (1966)

Not to be confused with the Beefeaters who released a solitary single (“Please Let Me Love You/Don’t Be Long”) for the Elektra label in 1964 before switching their name to the Byrds and winging to the top of the charts

One Track Mind: Freddie Atlas, “Vain” from Dreams (2013)

Sounding a bit like Elton John if he’d gotten himself locked outside of an impressionistic art exhibit on a stormy night, “Vain” comes trickling in almost as if it’s atop a lazy stream

One Track Mind: The Nth Power, “Spirits” from the Basic Minimum Skills Test EP (2013)

Like The Endangered around this time last year, I came across a EP from a band just getting off the ground that stands out from the current crop of emerging acts

One Track Mind: Bernie Mora and Tangent, “Dandelion” from Dandelion (2013)

One of my favorite Rush songs is “The Trees.” I love that brief acoustic, Renaissance mannered intro with a full-bodied metal guitar suddenly bursting in

One Track Mind: The Romantics – “Little White Lies / I Can’t Tell You Anything” (1977)

Detroit, Michigan has forever been known for its great music, and the Romantics are just one of many special bands born in the city.

One Track Mind: Queen’s Brian May with Kerry Ellis, “The Kissing Me Song” (2013)

Brian May’s on-going collaboration with Kerry Ellis finds the Queen co-founder adding his iconic guitar sound to “The Kissing Me Song,” a cutesy mainstream pop song with a fan-generated video of people smooching to boot.

One Track Mind: Mike Dillon, “Carly Hates The Dubstep/Bullsnake [Live]” (2013)

Mike Dillon calls himself an “electronic vibraphonic go go funk punk rock jazz screaming being,” which is 100% accurate, and if that doesn’t get you interested in his music, then GTFO.

One Track Mind: Moody Blues, “Gemini Dream” from Live at Montreux (2013)

One Track Mind: Moody Blues, “Gemini Dream” from Live at Montreux (2013)

While much has rightly been made of the Moody Blues’ prog-defining successes around the turn of the 1970s, a newly released concert performance contextualizes later hits like this one — which in its own way broke new ground.
