Continuing to send the love and to hope everyone along the East Coast is safe and sound.  We have a jam packed shuffle that ebbs and flows and cross borders and back and forth and builds and lifts and rises…. Higher….

I happened to catch Frank Ocean on SNL this past weekend (I had missed it the first time he was on), and I was stuck by the stunningly beautiful song Thinkin’ Bout You from Channel Orange. The song of unrequited first love and loss and regret is so emotionally raw and honest. It’s a good reminder of how far the hip-hop genre has come.


 
We can’t stop listening to The Dead Exs raucous newish album Relovolution.  Another song from that album made an appearance in today’s shuffle. White Collar Crime is more hard blues-rock goodness from the New York band.
Here are The Dead Exs from their Texas run of shows

Ain’t had a enough blues? We continue the raw two-man blues band sound with Husky Burnette from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Coming from the musical lineage of Johhny Burnette and Dorsey Burnette and with experience playing with the likes of Roger Alan Wade and Hank Williams III, Husky Burnette as set out on his own and recruited drummer Tony Jones to join him.  Today we have Mile Marker 68 which comes from Burnette’s 2011 album Face Down in the Dirt.  Check it out.


 
Coming full circle, we close out today’s shuffle with some more contemporary West Coast hip-hop with a new non-album track from rapper Kendrick Lamar called The Heart Pt. 3 which features Jay-Rock and Ab-Soul.  Lamar’s new album good kid, m.A.A.d. city dropped last week.
