Hey ho! It’s the final day of May. Remember tomorrow we will introduce a new feature on Ear to the Ground which will take the place of the ever popular Band of the Week, and hopefully move us forward in our mission to introduce you to the many talented artists putting out music around the world. In the meantime, stay tuned today, I’m going to be posting our Band of the Month poll for May, and I also have a free MP3 of a brand new song.
Back to a real live music shuffle – the air felt good this morning, but there was definitely quite a bit of humidity in the air. Storms are forecast for this afternoon, and as per usual, I am sans umbrella (did I ever mention that I hate umbrellas?) so I’m looking forward to the possibility of walking through a downpour this afternoon!
On to our shuffle:
I presented this song a couple of weeks ago in my post about The Bluefields. Bluefield, Joe Blanton, before he was in Royal Court of China, was part of a local Nashville Thrash band called, The Enemy. Today’s song is by The Enemy and according to the tag information on the download I got from Nashville 80s Rock – dot – net , it is from a Cassette release called Tijuana Go! which was also the title of a song on Royal Court of China’s second album, Geared and Primed. Anyway, the song is Jesus Rides a UFO and I must say hearing this song always brings me back to the mid-80s.
Next you we offer you another track from the fabulous Jo Wymer, a bluesy, rockin’ lady from New Jersey. That Kiss is on Jo’s 2011 album Living with Scars.
