Man you guys, I think I need an intern or something. I mean if Kramer could have an intern, I could – right? So much goodness going on – Our good friends, The Dead Exs dropped their sophomore album, Relovolution, while we were AMAing, and we are going to have a lot to say about this one. Cosmonauts are just a week away from unveiling the video to the song they recently debuted and which we had in the shuffle yesterday, Cold Harbor. The Disappointment have a new video, we just heard a killer new song from Dogs of Oz. There is new music out or coming soon from The Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, Band of Horses, John Hiatt and just about everybody else. We made some good contacts at the Americana to-do, and some big things are coming for little ole us. So of course, by nbl (non-blogging life) is also exploding and time become a precious commodity, but it’s all good.
Our shuffle today features two artists we saw live last week plus a song from the early 2000s and a relatively new song that sounds like an old song… Let’s jump into the shuffle:
Up next, we have a retro-sounding fuzzy guitar-driven, Garage Rock song called Driven by Love from the band 45 Spider which comes from Supercharged Sounds (the 8th Volume of the Best of GaragePunk Hideout) which came out in July.
Next, we have the debut single by California ska-punk band OPM from way back around the turn of the century. Heaven is Halfpipe promises skating after death. The debut album was called Menace to Sobriety (see what they did there?)
