She Rocks, We Rock, Everybody Rocks – Deep Cuts August 2017 (Rock Edition)
By Damian Rodriguez
Deep Cuts – the best in new tunes to invigorate and inspire your runs.
I like my women like I like my whiskey – Strong
There is something about heavy bass riffs, throbbing guitars, and Dorothy Martin holding vocal court that makes me very, very happy. Los Angeles rockers, Dorothy, have me cranking up the volume, to a level which I assume will lead to permanent hearing damage, with their new single, “Down To The Bottom.”
A ‘take no prisoners” vocalist singing intransigent lyrics to head bang worthy riffs, “Down To The Bottom” delivers on all these fundamental rock requirements and more.“Down To The Bottom” is a no holds barred rock song that will fit nicely in your “chicks that rock” playlist right between Janis Joplin and Pat Benatar making your next run a awesome one! You can keep your bubble gum pop and back round singing, bringing the ladies to the front and give them a Fender!
Long haired freaky people are my friends
UK gypsy folk rockers Holy Moly and the Crackers have a psychedelic hit on their hands with their new single, “Cold Comfort Lane.” You’ll want to get out your go-go boots and put on your pencil dress because it’s time to dance! “Cold Comfort Lane” is a girl power anthem complete with thumping drums, twangy guitars, a really intriguing brass section instrumental break, oh and one really pissed off lead singer kicking ass and taking names.
This is a song for all the ladies and gents who run down suburban streets where Wednesday is trash day and mini-vans occupy the driveways, but mom used to play bass in a punk band in college and dad brews his own beer in the basement. There is something sneakily subversive about “Cold Comfort Lane” that gives it the edge you will crave as you do hill repeats in your own running endeavors; showing that you too are more than the some of your stereotypes and will not be defined by other people’s expectations, instead choosing to forge your own rebellious path of individuality.
A Throwback That Can’t be ignored
A throwback track from 2005 for all the chicks that like to rock, KT Tunstall’s “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree.” The lead single off of KT’s debut album Eye To The Telescope, “Black Horse and the Cherry” is clap/stomp voo-doo priestess declaration of female empowerment and independence.
The scottish singer/song writer went on to have a number of other hits throughout the earlier 2000s but few are as rip roaringly feel good, bar trashing, sunny came home and burned that fucking house down evocative as “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree.” If you are making a “Chicks that rock” playlist I recommend you fill it with some Janis, KT, K.D, Stevie, Pat, Joan, and some new editions – Dorothy, and Holy Moly and The Crackers; then send it over to me on the Runnerzedge Facebook page I would love to have a listen.
That’s a wrap!
