Summer singles: Woods, Dalai Lamas, Gary Stewart

Gary Stewart and John Wesley Coleman sophomore lounge

John Wesley Coleman III’s take on the 1988 song that was originally recorded by the late outlaw country singer Gary Stewart, is an infectious “Crimson and Clover” sounding power pop version of Stewart’s “Ramona.” What makes this limited edition 7-inch released by Sophomore Lounge even more interesting is that the A-side is Stewart’s actual song. This is one of the must have singles of the summer.

Gary Stewart, “Ramona”

The Dalai Lamas 7” on the HoZac Hookup Klub came out a few months back, but it just started getting play on my turntable because I’m a busy guy who needs to do things like work, sleep, and whatnot. But you know what? I honestly could forego those things a bit more and just listen to the two sides of this fucked up, dirgey sounding junk. It’s almost like that time when Lou Reed thought he could write dance songs (pre-Velvets) except way better, and on better drugs. This one is sold out, but that just means you’re going to have to keep your eyes wide open for any upcoming releases.

Woods have a new single coming out on Sacred Bones. If there is anything we've learned in the past, it's buy anything on Sacred Bones and buy anything by Woods.
