Outasight knows a good time, and on his fun-loving debut record Nights Like These, the Yonkers, New York, native has a blast mixing pop, rock and rap into a potent cocktail. Opener "Let's Go" takes its title literally, kicking in with hand claps and a serrated guitar riff as Outasight heats things up with motormouthed flow, while the uplifting "I'll Drink To That 1" builds with careful acoustic picking and cinematic spirit. "Ready Set Go" drives forward with a bright electro thump and more of Outasight's playful raps, and the smooth crooning and hypnotic, pulsating club beat of "Under Lock and Key" drips with emotion. It's a party record, and it's due November 27th.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
