More clouds over Nashville. Much on my mind today, but nothing to share right now. We have a nice selection of music so… shall we?
After the JUMP
In the Pre-Shuffle…
“Cigareets and Whuskey and Wild Wild Women” by Black Jake and the Carnies (Our friends from Ypsilanti, Michigan are up first today with a track from their latest release, Watching, Waiting – the video comes from their performance at Scenic City Roots in Chattanooga which took place the day after I saw them at the sister even Music City Roots in Nashville)
“OK Corral” by T. Hardy Morris (A nifty song from the Audition Tapes album by Dead Confederate Hardy Morris. This album was produced by Cosmic Thug (Adam Landry and Justin Collins) who have previously worked with Deer Tick and Middle Brother.)
“AnnaRexia” by Marla Mase (yesterday, we had the Bill Laswell Dubmix of this song, today, we have the album version of the song, which is a power and stirring indictment of body image and insane societal expectations.)
“I’ll Start Again” by prattle on, rick (prattle on, rick is primarily Patrick Rickelton from Nashville by way of North Carolina. This is some groovy soulful music. Today’s track comes from a Noisetrade sampler – a new album from prattle on, rick is due out in the fall)

–> “Goodnight Chicago” by The Dirty Guv’nahs (We close out the Pre-Shuffle with another sweet track from Knoxville’s The Dirty Guv’nahs)
In the Shuffle…
“Freedom Jazz Dance (The Evolution of the Groove)” by Miles Davis from Miles Smiles (1967)
The band: Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams
In my book, you can’t go wrong with Miles.
“Human Heart” by Courrier from Cathedrals of Color (2013)
Courrier is from Austin, Texas, but they have a definite British-Alternative-Arena-Rock sound. It is stirring and expansive, and sounds great.
“Exit Me” by The Imperial Rooster from Cluckaphony (2013)
How fitting that we close out today’s mix of music with The Imperial Rooster’s song Exit Me. Cluckaphony is another favorite of mine from 2013. Way back in the Spring or something, we did an ever so clever dual/duel review of this album and Watching, Waiting by Black Jake and the Carnies (who started off today’s mix). The Imperial Rooster are from Espanola, New Mexico and I can’t wait to see them live.
