Song Of The Week

Anthony D’Amato – Rain On A Strange Roof

ANTHONYDAMATOProduced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit) and recorded with an Omaha all-star team of musicians including Conor Oberst and members of Bright Eyes, The Faint, and Cursive, ‘Cold Snap’ is Anthony D’Amato’s most ambitious, incisive, and sophisticated collection yet, with a larger-than-life sound propelled by dual drummers, explosive guitars, infectious hooks, and erudite lyrics. Written primarily during a touring hiatus forced by a broken finger, the songs explore the schisms between perception and reality, projection and truth, who we are and how we’re seen. The record follows D’Amato’s 2014 debut, ‘The Shipwreck From The Shore,’ which was inspired in part by his time studying with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon and earned raves on both sides of the pond, with NPR lauding that “he writes in the tradition of Bruce Springsteen or Josh Ritter” and Uncut proclaiming that his songwriting “echoes with early Bob Dylan.”

New Jersey pier, ruined by Sandy and fire, won’t be rebuilt

SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) — An historic Jersey shore pier that was pummeled by Superstorm Sandy, then destroyed in a spectacular fire might finally be done in by building regulations.

The owner of the former Funtown Pier says he won’t rebuild it if the town sticks to height restrictions it imposed this week on rides.

The pier was heavily damaged by Sandy in October 2012, then destroyed by a raging boardwalk fire in September 2013.

Owner William Major says he needs thrill rides up to 300 feet tall for a rebuilt pier to work financially.

But Seaside Park this week set a 100-foot limit on rides.

Major’s lawyer says barring an unexpected override of those limits by the Borough Council, the pier will not be rebuilt and some other use for it will be sought.
