Old memories are hard to escape. On their new track "Ever Loved Once," Blitzen Trapper look back on a past relationship and failed starts to figure out if old love ever dies. The alt folk/country crew packs in plenty of airy pedal steel guitar touches, yearning harmonica and rambling banjo plucks as they contemplate small-town romance.

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

"Ever Loved Once" will be on Blitzen Trapper's next album, VII, out October 1st.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
