Good morning, well we are just a few days into our October Band of the Month voting, and so far, Black Jake and the Carnies have a commanding lead. From prior months voting, however, I can tell you that things can change quickly.  So go vote and vote some more:


Today, we shuffle up a playlist of songs by this month’s featured artists.

First up are the youthful Rockers from Connecticut, The Foresters.  In addition to voting for them for Band of the Month, be sure to help them earn a spot opening for Sum 41.  They have video cover of a Sum 41 song entered in a contest through the website TopBlip. Vote HERE.
While Ear to the Ground can’t offer opening spots for becoming Band of the Month, we can guarantee the winner a primo spot on the bill of the first annual Ear to the Ground Fest whenever and wherever that happens.. 🙂 Today, we have the band’s rocking tune, Rubber Band.

Here’s the Band’s Cover of Sum 41’s Underclass Hero

Next, we have the Brennen Leigh’s Just to Hear My Little Bluebird Sing from her 2010 album, The Box.

A year ago at this time Forest Mountain Hymnal released a spooky collections of songs, called Fitcher’s Bird and Other Tales of the Macabre. From that release comes, Lady Margaret (Child Ballad 74). 


Here is a video of another version of the Lady Margaret tale

And finally, we close out this music shuffle with a song from current Band of the Month front-runners, Black Jake and the Carnies.  Farmer Had Him Rats is just a raucous good time.  It’s off the Michigan band’s 2011 album Sundry Mayhems.  


 

The Band released an EPK today and here it is:
