 It’s Friday and it’s also the last day of May!  

Let’s put this month to rest with some awesome tunes…

Pre-Shuffle:

“Moorie” by Great Divide
“Bridge by the River” by Nikki Sue and the Bad News
“Wish I Could Stand or Have” and “Chardonnay” by Game Theory
“Bloodhound” by Jeanette Lynne
“Tear You Up” and “Come In” by Decades
“Drenched” by Wanting
“Tickin’ Bomb” by Shovels and Rope

 Shuffle – after le jump… la jump????  The Jump!

  •  “Tables (Acoustic)” by Seth Philpott from a 2013 Noisetrade Sampler original version from Bad Hearts (2013) 

 Grabbed a sampler from Noisetrade and I’ve become a pretty big fan of this Nashville Singer/Songwriter.  Bad Hearts came out earlier this month.

  • “Don’t Force the Funk” by Wheelchair Sports Camp from Where We All Live (2012)

Kalyn the MC/Producer of Wheelchair Sports camp is 26 years old, 3 foot 6 inches tall and weighs 53 pounds. She has osteogenesis imperfecta a brittle bone condition. She also delivers some kick-ass lyrical explosions and with the rest of the band deliver some vicious beats.

  • “Disaster” by Kopecky Family Band from The Disaster(2010)

Nashville’s Kopecky Family Band have been making music together since 2007.  Their latest album (linked above) Kids Raising Kids is getting some serious National attention, but here in Nashville, we’ve been paying attention for a while now.  I absolutely love this sort of Title track from the band’s 2010 album.

  • “Autumn Leaves” by Great Divide from Great Divide (2013)


 

Really, really digging the soul vibe from this Great Divide record.


  • “Still Frightened” by Coastwest Unrest from High Times of Lowly Street (2013)


!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js”;fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,”script”,”twitter-wjs”);https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js

Coastwest Unrest are from Las Vegas.  I literally just downloaded their new Noisetrade Sampler last night, and this was my first real listen.  So far, so good. Great sound and I’m dying to hear more.


  • “Bloodsucker” by Moses and the Firstborn from Mozes and the Firstborn (2013)

Mozes and the Firstborn are from Antwerp. They have a wicked sense of humor and they pretty much rock.  Isn’t that enough?


  • “Falling” by Tipi Valley from Rock ‘n Roll Lives On (2013)





Really, really digging this new music from our friend Tipi Valley from the UK. Here’s a link to the video of the title track-  http://vimeo.com/66842870

Friday Morning Music Shuffle – Taking It Up a Notch Mix

Oh, hear this Robert Zimmerman
I wrote a song for you
About a strange young man called Dylan
With a voice like sand and glue
Some words of truthful vengeance
They could pin us to the floor
Brought a few more people on
And put the fear in a whole lot more”

David Bowie

 Happy 72nd Birthday Robert Zimmerman and also to that strange young man named Dylan…

Well, well, well…  I thought we had covered a lot of musical ground yesterday, but we may have just topped ourselves.  You be the judge.

Pre-shuffle:

We start things out with a performance of a Ukrainian folk song.

1.  “Ой Полечко, Поле (Oj Polechko, Pole” by Katarina Ljahovic, Mike Romaniak, Patrick Power and Stephen Kreuger (by the way, Patrick Power is better known to E2TG readers as 1/2 of Valued Customer, and he may well be a musical genius in my book)

2. “Old Friend” by Sea Wolf (another cool track from the L.A. based Indie Rock band who take their name from a Jack London novel)

3.  “This is a Notice” by Mic Harrison and the High Score (This is Knoxville Rock! Mic Harrison was a member of the V-Roys and Superdrag before teaming up with The High Score.  This song is pretty damn awesome raver.)

4.  “Psycho Killer” (B-Side featuring Arthur Russell) by Talking Heads (a recently released alternate take of the Talking Heads classic featuring a well utilized Cello)

5. “Only Sixteen” by Craig Douglas (1959 cover of a Sam Cooke song by a UK Pop singer)

6. “Boys Keep Me Up at Night” by Jeanette Lynne (another gem from the You’ve Got Me album)


SHUFFLE NEXT:

  •  “SUPERHORRORCASTLELAND” by Ghost and Goblin from SUPERHORRORCASTLELAND (2013) 

 The title track from this awesome New York band’s still new album.  Don’t be scared – check it out!

  • “Signal 30” by Public Service Broadcasting from Signal 30 EP (2013)

You know what we haven’t had yet in our Shuffle?  This. Public Service Broadcasting are from London and they take found sounds and make new music to surround them. 

  • “Think of You” by Bleached from Carter EP (2011)

https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js

Some cool L.A. Rock.

  • “Night Jogger” by Those Darlins from Night Jogger/Funstix Party Single (2011)

More awesomeness from Those Darlins – we grabbed this from a Noisetrade release, but it dates back to a Split 7″ with FUNSTIX – a Those Darlins side project.

  • “Kasper” by Sea Wolf from Old World Romance (2012)

 

We close things out with the only repeat performers in today’s mix.  Sea Wolf are back with the amazing Kasper.

 Come join me on a magical, musical journey covering over 60 years and crossing at least one ocean…..

Pre-Shuffle:

“How Time Goes By” by Howlin’ Brothers (Nashville’s own -from their new album Howl produced by Brendan Benson on Readymade Records)

“Intro” by Wheelchair Sports Camp (a brief beginning of our coverage of this hip-hop artist from Colorado.  Currently on tour with Flobots.)

“Jukebox Cannonball” by Bill Haley and the Comets (a variation of the country music standard, Wabash Cannonball made famous by the late Roy Acuff)

“Blood Beach” by Ghost and Goblin (another great track from this band’s SUPERHORRORCASTLELAND album.  Shares a title with a 1980 horror movie which I saw at a all-night horror movie marathon when I was young – I’ve included the trailer to the movie in the Playlist below)

“Rock n’ Roll Lives On” by Tipi Valley (our friend from Swansea, UK is back with a new EP.  This is the title track – an awesome straight-ahead rocker.)

“She’s Got a  Boyfriend” by Jack Carty (great song by this Indie/Folk artist from New South Wales)

“Suburban Trap Rap” (Prod. Ta-Ku” by Christian Robins (another great track from this ultra-fabulous KidGrownUp mixtape)

SHUFFLE UP NEXT – FIRST WE JUMP!

  • “Alpha Dogs” by Holy Ghost Tent Revival from Sweat Like the Old Days (2012)

Excellent stuff from the latest album by the Greensboro, NC band. 

  • “Imagination” by Savoir Adore from Our Nature (2013)

A first taste of the forthcoming album by this Brooklyn band.  They are touring with Sea Wolf – who we had in the mix the other day.  Coincidence or wily move on my part? You be the judge.

  • “Tennessee” by Great Divide from Great Divide (2013)
Another song from this Chicago Rock/Soul band I’m really digging on right now.  This ones about my home state. So there!

  • “Carry Me” by Morgan Page with Nadia Ali from In the Air (2012)

We close out the shuffle with a change of pace (actually, I think the whole shuffle has been all change of pace).  Morgan Page is an Electronica artist from L.A. via Vermont. Nadia Ali is from New York.  She was nominated for a Grammy for a track Morgan Page remixed.  To be honest, this is a genre I know very little about. Based upon Facebook likes a whole lot of people are into this. For me, it was a great change of pace and it’s always fun to step outside my comfort zone (which I hope is pretty large anyway).

Time moves on.  We walk unaided into the abyss. Sail our ships closer to the sun. Life become a series of movements, of stanzas. We stand alone and yet never truly alone…

We have some cool tunes to refresh, reinvigorate and renew your damaged innocence. Or something… we have cool tunes…

Pre-Shuffle:  

“A Little Bit Longer” by Grass Root Kids (a nifty song by this awesome new band from Nashville)

“Red Light Love” by Those Darlins (Awesome song and check out the cool video in the playlist below.  Nashville – Those Darlins will be playing at Eastside Hootenanny this Saturday and this will the first and only opportunity to hear some new songs from the next Those Darlins album which is due out in the Fall.)

“Nine Lives to Rigel Five” by Game Theory (More Game Theory with a Star Trek reference – I am a equal opportunity geek)

SHUFFLE _after_ JUMP

  •  “Big White Wall” by Drive He Said from Multitudes (2012)

The last song on the debut album by Maxim Ludwig’s new band.  I love this song.  Fits well in a mix that includes Red Light Love and Big Blue Wave.

Did I happen to mention Those Darlins are from Nashville?  Did I happen to mention, I love this band?  Did I happen to mention that I’m impressed?

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Break on Through Mix

Well all sorts of bad things happened yesterday.  Sending love and prayers and thoughts to the people of Oklahoma.  

Also, remembering Ray Manzarek of The Doors who passed away yesterday. A true creative genius who shaped many generations of music.

We got some songs – as we are reminded again that Music Heals….

Today…. Pre-Shuffle-wise.

“More of the Same” by Britain. (feat. Clark Beckham) – this is the first released track from a forthcoming EP. Been digging on this track for a little while. Production by my good friend Hayden Coleman.  Representing the 615 – but this is different.

“Run Like Hell” by Drive He Said

“Sugar” by Paper Route

Wakin On a Pretty Day” by Kurt Vile – this nine plus minute song transitions us into the Shuffle of the day.


 

  •  “Wakin On a Pretty Day” by Kurt Vile from Waking On a Pretty Daze (2013)



This first release from the long anticipated follow up to 2011s Smoke Ring for My Halo is a long lovely song.

  • “Two Strangers” by Sea Wolf a b-side outtake from Old World Romance (2012)

This L.A. Indie band released an EP on Noisetrade which includes two tracks from their latest album plus three previously unreleased tracks from the same sessions.  We have another unreleased track later in the Shuffle.

  • “Saint Anthony” by Jeanette Lynne from You’ve Got Me (2013)

This beautiful song may well be my favorite from this album (which I like a whole lot).  Jeanette Lynne is from Philly, she had a great and unique voice and an amazing songwriting ability.  Please, please, please check out her album. 

  • “Sons and Daughters” by Sea Wolf an outtake from Old World Romance (2012)

Our second listen to Sea Wolf today. I think this may be my favorite of the two tracks.
