Let’s jump to the shuffle – 

 Monday’s are a beast….

Shuffle after the jump….

1. Song: His Arm Has Grown Long  Artist: Alexander Tucker  Album: Dorwytch (2011)

Alexander Tucker is from Kent, England.  This is sometimes beautiful, challenging, darkly complex music that seems to emanate from some ancient place and channel through the mindset of modern experimental post everything music.

2. Song: Turn Away  Artist: Forgetters  Album: Forgetters (2012)

Brooklyn Alt-Rock – featuring former members of Jawbreaker and Jets To Brazil, Againt Me! and Bitchin’.  Nabbed this song from the latest Feel Bad for You compilation.

3. Song: Here, In Heaven  Artist: Elite Gymnastics Album: Ruin 1 (2011) 
Vancouver-based electronicky pop music stuff…

 4. Song: Dance With You  Artist: Willie Ames Album: Night Owl (2011)

Not the guy from Eight is Enough and Charles in Charge (do go there!) ( Btw, that Willie has two As in Aames), but a talented singer-songwriter-musician from California.  Night Owl is a beautiful record and Dance With You is a beautiful song. 
video for the title track

 5. Song: Where am I Growing Up To?  Artist: Diana Lawrence Album: To: Aging Children (2012) 

A featured Artist from last summer. An incredibly talented songwriter/vocalist. I met Diana Lawrence at the Americana fest, and I’m glad I did.  Here she is singing with Phoebe Hunt, who I also met at Americana.

6. Song: David Foster Wallace (acoustic) Artist: The Ugly Club  Album: Songs from a 10th Street Apartment (2012)

Another E2TG featured artist from last year. The song, which first appeared on the band’s You Belong to the Minutes album – as did all of the songs on the acoustic Songs from a 10th Street Apartment record, is about the legendary novelist.  I first came upon The Ugly Club and this song shortly after I finished reading Wallace’s 1989 short story collection, Girl with the Curious Hair. A different The Ugly Club song.

 7. Song: Jefferson Combine  Artist: Slow Mover Album: Slow Mover (2012) 

 Some hard, stoner rock from the Boston area.  Nabbed with from the epic, Bong Hits From the Astral Basement collection.

8.  Song: Define a Transparent Dream Artist: The Olvia Tremor Control Album: Music From the Unrealized Film Script, Dusk at Cubist Castle (1996) 

Awesomeness from the debut of one of the original Elephant 6 bands

9.  Song: Channels and Winds Composer: Phillip Glass Album: Passages (1990)
Originally part of a collaboration between Glass and the late Ravi Shankar. The version we heard today came from a Phillip Glass sampler called The Orange Mountain 

10.  Song: Evidence  Artist: The Soft Moon and John Foxx Album: ????
Okay, John Foxx was the original singer of Ultravox (before Midge Ure) and The Soft Moon are a San Francisco neo-post punk band.  The song Evidence was recently released by Foxx and his latest band The Maths.  Other than that, I don’t know much about this version of the song (including how it made it’s way into my collection), but it is good stuff.

11.  Song: Cupid  Artist: Sam Cooke Single (1961) 
We close things up today with the inimitable Sam Cooke and the classic Cupid.
