Hey ho! It’s a brand new month.  Let’s kick it off right!

Pre-Shuffle: (I had some post Shuffle technical difficulties so I’m having to reconstruct the order of the songs from memory)

“Goin’ to a Party” by Alabama Shakes
“From a Window Seat” by Dawes
“Freak Show” by SkyBurnsRed
“I Found You” by Aaron and Andrew
“Give Me Back my Wig” by Hound Dog Taylor and The Houserockers
 “Last Stop” by Black Jake and the Carnies (Nashville Show Alert!!!!  Black Jake and the Carnies will be playing at this Wednesday’s edition of Music City Roots Live from the Loveless Barn.  If you can’t make it to the Loveless, you can catch the broadcast on Lightning 100 or at  the Music City Roots website)
“Buried” and “On My Own” by Year of October
“Tina Says” by Those Darlins

And a song from Nashville’s Ben Shive serves as a transition to the Shuffle which begins right after the JUMP!

  • “Your Secret Smile” by Ben Shive from The Cymbal Crashing Clouds (2011)

 

Ben Shive is a Nashville singer-songwriter and not at all what you’d expect given that description.  That’s a good thing.

  • “Traveling” by Mystery Twins from Love is Strange EP (2012)

 

More unexpected goodness from a Nashville duo.  In case you haven’t figured it out, a lot of the music being made in Nashville is not at all what you might expect.  Lose those expectations!

  • “Been There Before” by Human Face from The Waiting Game (Part One) (2012)

Human Face are a recent discovery via a Twitter Follow.  They play Indie Rock and are from London.  I really dig what I’ve heard so far.

  • “Poetry in Motion” by Johnny Tillotson (1961 Hit Single)

Johnny Tillotson is from Florida. Poetry in Motion is his biggest hit and was recorded in Nashville with session players that included Boots Randolph and Floyd Cramer.

  • “720 Times Happier Than The Unjust” by The Loud Family from Attractive Nuisance (2000)

Following the demise of Game Theory, the late Scott Miller formed The Loud Family – named after a 1973 PBS series An American Family.  Today’s song comes from that band’s 5th Studio Album.

  • “Rust Golem” by Ghost and Goblin from SUPERHORRORCASTLELAND (2013)
We close out a pretty random but totally awesome mix of songs with another track from the totally cool new album from New York band Ghost and Goblin who came to our attention thanks to a recommendation by The End Men.
