Between the Grooves: Schuyler Fisk Wins the Prize

Singer/actress Schuyler Fisk retreated to the rural Virginia where she grew up to make her second album Blue Ribbon Winner.

The daughter of Oscar winner Sissy Spacek's displays a soothingly smooth voice, a keen ear for bouncy pop/Americana melodies and a mom and apple pie kind-of vibe.

Schuyler Fisk plays this week's Between the Grooves, Thursday at 2pm on WTMD.

Check out the Sam Jones-directed ("I am Trying to Break Your Heart") video for Schuyler's "What Good is Love" that came out of a recent Vanity Fair photo shoot.

CD of the Week: Black Joe Lewis Gets Scandalous!

After a 2009 debut that told us what their name was, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears take a fan mandate for more unpolished, garage soul, please, and make another gloriously hedonistic, brassy gem, Scandalous, WTMD's new CD of the Week.

What more can you say about a band that sounds like Ike Turner and the Stooges on a bad blind date?! Those two might have wound up at the "Mustang Ranch,"  the Nevada brothel to which Black Joe pays homage.

Funkify with floor shaker "Black Snake,"  get seduced by the slinky bass, groovy guitar lick and reverbed saxophone on the highlight title song, "She's So Scandalous" and tap into the Howlin' Wolf/early Stones acoustic blues vibe of "Messin," and with apologies to Scott Mullins, you've got one heck of a dirty soul party!

Jim Eno of Spoon produced his fellow Austinites for the second straight time. Check out tracks from Scandalous all week long on TMD!
