Ryan Sollee is a guitar player and the lead vocalist in Portland Americana band The Builders and the Butchers. On Monday, Feb. 7, the band plays at Low Spirits with Murder By Death and Damion Suomi & the Minor Prophets. From the road, by way of a BlackBerry, Sollee gave us a randomly selected peek into his music library.

1) “Modern Times” • The Black Keys • Magic Potion

“Genius blues riffage, and the most soulful band on the radio right now.”

2) “Bag of Hammers” • Thao with The Get Down Stay Down • We Brave Bee Stings and All

“Thao is such a great performer, great voice and this song is full of great hooks.”

3) “Shepherd of the Stray Hearts” • Lovers • Dark Light

“Emotional dance music outta Portland. I’ve listened to this record more than any other over the past six months.”

4) “Modern Romance” • Yeah Yeah Yeahs • Fever to Tell

“Simple, captivating and building from the last good record that they put out.”

5) “Dog Door” • Tom Waits • Orphans

“Little ditty that sounds like it didn't quite make the cut for The Black Rider.”
