So here we go it’s Monday, and we have some good stuff going down this week. Tomorrow, Cosmonauts are unveiling a brand new song, and we have an interview with the band to help kick that off. Meanwhile, voting for Band of the Month is going hot and heavy. Right now, Loners Society hold a lead over Rooftop Runners followed by The Imperial Rooster. But, we are still in the early stages of voting which will run until right at Midnight on the 31st of August.
This morning, our shuffle takes us into our Revolving Random playlist and offers up some tasty tunes. So, let’s get to it.
First up, we have an alternate take of a classic song from the late, great Warren Zevon. Desperados Under the Eaves has the dual distinction of being one of the coolest songs of all time, and utilizing two words which I wished showed up in my daily life more often (Desperados and Eaves). The version today is from the Preludes collection of rare and unreleased songs.
Next, we have a sweet dose of Southern mysticism backed by now legendary jangly guitars. We have the sounds of a band hitting their stride. We have Maps and Legends by R.E.M. from the Fables of the Reconstruction album (1985).
Up next, we have Seattle-based singer-songwriter Damien Jurado with a track from his 2010 album, St. Bartlett. Arkansas contains the characteristic murky goodness we’ve come to expect from Mr. Jurado.
And finally, we have a track from one of our Bands of the Week from last year. The track is on the album Dead Letters by Sealight which was the first album we reviewed here at ear to the ground. La Nieve Del Tiempo literally translates as Snow Time, and it is chill-inducing, beautiful music.
