Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Reverse Course & Full Stop Mix

The edge of town to the middle of the road… Night fell and somewhere a band was playing, “There Goes My Baby”, and the singer wasn’t very good, but he was perfect for the moment.  You and I stared out into the distance and dreamed about a better day which secretly we never believed would come our way.  But, there is a time for everything and season change and the world moves on.  On a night, no unlike the other, I found myself down at the edge of town in the middle of the road, and somewhere a band was playing…

In the U.S., it’s tax day – pushed back due to the 15th falling on a Sunday and yesterday being an obscure holiday in Washington D.C. So I could have subtitled this post, Tax Day Blues Mix or something… but I didn’t.

We open up today’s shuffle with a random discovery from the Noisetrade site. Joey English is a singer-songwriter from Knoxville, Tennessee. Today’s track is called You Are On My Mind. Go to Noisetrade or use the link above to view his album on Amazon.

 
Here is a video of another Joey English song, Got to Go
Next up, we have a cover song.  Sad Baby Wolf are from Albuquerque, New Mexico which includes a couple of ex-Shins.  Here they do a cool cover of Neutral Milk Hotel’s Everything Is the title track from the 1994 EP (link below).
 
Below is an other track New Survival Guide from Sad Baby Wolf
 
Song number three is from band, I’ve just been asked to given a listen to, so you get to go along for the ride with me.  DRUNKSOULS are a Reggae-influenced Indie Rock band from Marselle, France. The have a relatively new album called Revolution and today we listen to Drifter Song the lead track from the album.  
 
Here they are playing Drifter Song at Grand Auditorium du Palais des Festivals de Cannes at a benefit for African Reggae star TIKEN JAH FAKOLI.
 Finally, we end up with our old friends The Dead Exs with another track from their Resurrection album.  This one is called Angel from New Orleans.  The Dead Exs are going to be part of the top secret project I am working to complete for Record Store Day.  Stay tuned for more information about that.
 
Below is a The Dead Exs’ contribution to this year’s Couch by Couchwest.
