Play Favorites with... Liberty Jones
Every Wednesday Click Track finds out what the city is listening to with Play favorites -- a weekly column where we ask a Washingtonian what's been in heavy rotation on their iPod. This week, we spoke with Liberty Jones, public relations manager at Nieman Marcus, whose daily commute on public transit wouldn't be the same without earbuds. Here's what she's been listening to:
Bat For Lashes, "Daniel"
She's awesome. She reminds me of Stevie Nicks if Stevie Nicks were raised by wolves.
Duke Ellington, "Satin Doll"
I'm working on a project with the Arena Stage which is going to re-open shortly. They're doing a performance of "Sophisticated Ladies" at the Lincoln Theater, the Duke Ellington musical. It sort of reinvigorated my love of Duke Ellington. There was a record that my mom had when I was younger and for some reason I was obsessed with the song "Satin Doll." It's an amazing melody.
(A "frat boy perv" and "kind of a weirdo," after the jump.)
St. Vincent, "Marry Me"
I've been listening to the new St. Vincent, but actually went back to her old album. That song "Marry Me" makes me want to cry. Or find a boyfriend. It's such a great song. She has such amazing songs on that album. I don't think this new album is even close.
Robert Earl Keene, "Not A Drop of Rain"
I think he's sort of a frat boy perv. But I understand. He has a cult following but I never got into him until I heard that song. I thought, "He didn't write this. He stole it obviously." But I researched it. He wrote it. And it's such a beautiful song.
Beirut, "A Night With a Prostitute in Marsailles"
I've seen them twice but the Sixth and I Synagogue performance, I thought, was just sick. So good. He's kind of a weirdo but I love his voice. It's very haunting.
