Jonathan Wilson (Momofuku) with a nice story about EC - video

Jonathan Wilson played a solo acoustic show last night in NYC. He intros this song with a good story about how Elvis encouraged his early work:

His new album, Rare Birds, is really good.

Re: EC praises John Sebastian

Summer in the City was a decent song too (said sarcastically). Nice article about that song, and the band in general, with fantastic photos here:

His analysis is really insightful. I like the description of Lipstick Vogue:

...before a spooky breakdown gives way to a twelve-bar Thomas solo that sounds like a punk drummer interpreting “Sing, Sing, Sing.”

That 2 minute instrumental ending of Photographs Can Lie is a thing of beauty. Kitten and Briana's vocal work is sublime.
