Donnie & Joe Emerson - Dreamin’ Wild
Here’s an album that hasn’t been far from the MOJO stereo of late. Recorded in their family-built studio in a remote part of Washington State, Dreamin’ Wild was privately pressed in 1979. If you haven’t heard these hypnotic country-soul dream-pop grooves, then check them out above. To read the full, amazing story, we highly recommend picking up the new reissue from Light It The Attic.
Paul Weller - That Dangerous Age
Here’s the first taste of Paul Weller’s new studio album, Sonik Kicks. The Kinks/Blur shoo-wopping of That Dangerous Age is due for release on March 11 - one week before the LP.
Discussing the song on his site, Weller said: “There was an inference that I was going through a mid-life crises. Which I found really amusing: the clichéd notion of it. And that was the impetus for (the song) even though it isn’t really about that. It’s a bit tongue in cheek, too. I guess it’s also about how society views people of a certain age. For me, does it really matter what age you are? It’s what up there in your soul that matters.”
Sonik Kicks follows 2010’s Wake Up The Nation and will be reviewed in the next issue of MOJO.
The Shins - September

MOJO Rising: Jodie Marie
Origin: Narberth, Pembrokeshire, UK
MOJO says: “Jodie began singing locally, developing her languid soulful style by sitting in with her father’s band. She inked a deal, aged 16, with manager Toby L at Transgressive and subsequently signed to Verve, honing her songwriting skills with Ed Harcourt and Bernard Butler. Her debut LP Mountain Echo is a languorous affair that places her in Carole King territory.”
Current Release: Single, I Got You, is out now. Debut album, Mountain Echo, is due for release on March 5.
