Good morning! Remember, keep voting in our current Band of the Month Poll
. Voting is going strong. In the past twenty-four hours, Loners Society has increased their lead, but as we have seen in the past, it can all change in no time flat.
Be sure to come back here around 5:00pm Central Time (6:00 Eastern) (Tuesday August 21, 2012) – The rest of you are on your own – as we will present an interview with Cosmonauts and a chance to preview their brand new song, Cold Harbor.
Let’s get into the music shuffle for the day:
First up, we have a New York band who came to our attention via The Dead Exs. The Great American Novel will be playing a show with The Dead Exs and others next Monday at the Mercury Lounge. If you’re in that area, be sure to check it out.
The Great American Novel are a fun band, and I’m looking forward to hearing more from them. Today, we have American Weekend (which seems a bit like a taunt since it only Tuesday) from their recent release, Kissing.
(Couldn’t find a video for American Weekend, so here is another track from Kissing)
Keeping it in New York area, we have a band called The Dukes of Brooklyn with a track called White Lightnin’ which you can check out here. It’s some awesome Blues-based stuff which I really dig.
Next, we have a second track from Scissor Sisters Ta-Dah album – I Can’t Decide. We recently picked up this CD at our local Goodwill, and it’s a great record. Danceable music that doesn’t suck. By the way, not that we’re keeping track, but Scissor Sisters are a NY-based band as well.
And finally, we leave off from New York and drive south to Charleston, SC for a fantastic singer-songwriter named Joal Rush. Another Lover Song was released in 2010 on his Wares album.
