Thursday Morning Music Shuffle – Gold Rush Mix

So much going on, and yet I find myself constantly pressed for time.  So here is a quick and dirty, non-complete run down of some things which have crossed my mind, my desk or my social media filters….

1. RIP Patty Andrews – the last surviving member of the Andrews Sisters.

2.  The Great American Novel have released a new single…

3. Couch by Couchwest is about a month and a half away.  Bands: Submit your videos to Couch by Couchwest – “Where the beer is cheaper and the only hipster is you.”


After the jump; a shuffle:

 Today all 10 songs in the shuffle are available via the Clip Widget from Amazon right above this sentence.  Check it out.
1.  Day That Marvin Gaye Died
     The Avett Brothers
      Mignonette (2004)
That would be April 1, 1984

2. Let the Natives Loose
    The Dead Exs
     Relovolution (2012)
Another great track from the incredible latest release from one of our favorite bands.  The Relovolution will not be televised, but it will be streaming via You Tube.

here’s DP of The Dead Exs from last year’s CXCW

3.  Cali Hills
     Guilty Simpson + Madlib
     OJ Simpson (album) 2010
I know  admittedly little about rap/hip hop, but I’ll take a stab and say this is West Coast… oh and I kind of like this.

4.   Queen of California
      John Mayer
      Born and Raised (2012)
The latest AAA hit single from the singer/songwriter/internet personality.  This one name drops Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. I kind of like this.

5.   Should’ve Known
       Popular Genius
      How to Be Popular (2003)
Great early 21st Century indie rock from Nashville. 

Video of the recording of the album

6. Back from Somewhere
    Husker Du
     Warehouse: Songs and Stories (1987)
 
Seems like this album has come up quite often recently.  No complaints here.

7.  For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield cover)
     The Staple Singers 
     Freedom Highway (1967)
I think this song has come up at least two previous times on Morning Shuffles, but to be honest, I never get tired of hearing it.

8.   On and Off Again
      Sondre Lerche
      Faces Down (2001)
Great song from the Norwegian singer/songwriter’s debut album

9.   Cajun Twisters
      Adam Ant
      Friend or Foe (1982)
I have no idea what this has to do with Cajun culture or Cajun Music, but it’s good old early 80s wacky new wave fun.

10.  As You Choke
       The Hunting Accident
       Trees and Parks (2012)
Another nice track from this California indie band…
