Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Need to Know

How much longer can this really go down? 
I'm hearing you fight from dusk 'til dawn, 
Just wanting it all to move on 
and im scared all over again. 

If I try to fix it, 
it wouldn't really work, 
i'd only makes things worse and then 
i'm scared all over again. 

i need to know (repeat) 
how far can this go? (repeat) 

i need to know 
how far can this go? 

When what I want to say 
won't come out the right way. 
it comes out and goes back in 
and i'm scared all over again

Jessica Lea Mayfield on World Cafe, Wednesday @ 8pm on WCBE

Lead in text: 
Akron native discusses her new release "Make My Head Sing."
Jessica Lea Mayfield was such an eye-opening discovery when we first heard her first album With Blasphemy So Heartfelt in 2008. Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) produced it and the follow-up Tell Me. She was almost an Akron, Ohio neighbor when Auerbach discovered her through the EP she had released the year before at the age of 15 under the name Chittlin.

Lead in text: 
It's conversation and a performance from the World Café studios.
Seattle based singer songwriter Noah Gundersen is with us today. Noah grew up in a strict Christian household with limited access to secular music. Happily his parents are now supportive of his work. Once he started writing he put out a record at the age of 13 on his own and played with his sister in the band The Courage.

The breakup songs that offer instant gratification, to songwriter and listener alike, are often the ones that either strike while the anger is hot or skip right to the part where a busted old love is replaced by a new one. Those are the fast-paced action scenes of romantic dissolution. Who would want to dwell on the quietly agonizing, drawn-out times between; the times when a person can feel like a broken record of heartache?

When the spirit of Nirvana surfaces in a song, the artist paying tribute almost always shares style points with that treasured band. The hair is shaggy, the clothes a little ragged; the lineage unfolds, relatively neatly, from punk to the present.

First Aid Kit's new album, Stay Gold, comes out June 10.

Originally published on Tue June 17, 2014 12:35 pm

Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg first made their names with feather-light chamber-folk confections that echoed the soaring sweetness of Fleet Foxes. A cover of that band's "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" even helped launch the then-teenagers to YouTube fame back in 2008. But in 2014, styles have changed and so have the Söderbergs: First Aid Kit's major-label debut, Stay Gold, moves well beyond the portentous prettiness of the pair's 2012 breakthrough, The Lion's Roar.

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Rampage

You don't know me and I don't know you 
You look at me and I'm looking through you 
But as you can see there is nothing you can do 
Because I am me and you are who? 

I'm trying to make it to the top 
So stop trying to make me feel bad 
for the things you couldn't do 
I'm trying to make this flow 
So when the time comes I can make the dough

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Lost Thoughts

 La-la-la-Lost, lost, lost, lost 
All of these Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts, thoughts 

In a dream, 
In the wild-wide open country 
My only friend 
The sun was shining 

(Ba-bum-ba-bum-bum) 
Bumble-jumble 
All of these thoughts, thoughts, thoughts, thoughts 

Help them out, 
write it down- 
but first, 
I'll put them to good use... 

La-la-la-Lost, lost, lost, lost 
All of these Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts, thoughts
