Friday Morning Music Shuffle – 24 Carat Gold Tears of a Rapper Mix

Ah… Record Store Day is nigh. Get thee to a Record Store near you and show some brick and mortar love.  If you are in or around Nashville, I’ll be hanging out around Grimey’s most of the day, so come down and join me.

I have tons to do today, so I will jump right into the morning shuffle:

If all I knew about Skeletons in the Piano is that they’ve been playing some shows with our good friends, The End Men, well, that in and of itself would denote the awesomeness of this band from Upstate New York. Fortunately, I have had that assessment confirmed with the ample evidence which is their music. They have a new video which is a cover of Eleanor Rigby Which I know you can find with my help, but oh what the hell…

Today’s song is from the Band’s Stranger On a Damned Staircase album. The song is The Old Hound Dog.

  
We move on now… to the always Chan Marshall who records as Cat Power.  Today’s song is the title track from her 2006 album (a collaboration with several Memphis R&B musicians). The Greatest is a subtle, tender song that showcases Cat Power’s unique voice.

 
Song number three is the hilarious Hurt Feelings by New Zealand Comedy duo Flight of the Conchords. It’s off of their 2009 second album, I Told You I Was Freaky.
 
And finally, we close out today’s shuffle with Danish punk rockers, Iceage with the title track from their debut album from last year called New Brigade. I love the old school punk rock being infused with fresh, new energy.

Legendary filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai directs Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz, and Norah Jones in his first English-language feature film — a romantic road movie detailing the cross-country journey of a woman who sets off across the United States in hopes of mending her broken heart. Elizabeth (Jones) has just been through a particularly nasty breakup, and now she’s ready to leave her friends and memories behind as she chases her dreams across the country. In order to support herself on her journey, Elizabeth picks up a series of waitress jobs along the way. As Elizabeth crosses paths with a series of lost souls whose yearnings are even greater than her own — including a troubled cop (David Strathairn), his estranged wife (Rachel Weisz), and an embittered gambler (Natalie Portman) — their emotional turmoil ultimately helps her gain a greater understanding of her own problems. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie – a.k.a. Flight of the Conchords – may be “New Zealand’s 4th Most Popular Folk Parody Duo,” but in the USA, finding someone who knows their act is about as easy as finding a kiwi nest in Central Park. To rectify this oversight, Jemaine and Bret have moved to New York’s East Village to conquer America, one fan (literally) at a time.
