Greetings and Welcome to Ear to the Ground, where we listen to music and tell you about it. Then we let you listen, too.

We have a rather interesting mix of music today – so let’s jump to it….

JUMP

Pre-Shuffle:

“Thief in My Mouth” by The Weeks (acclaimed Nashville band from their latest Dear Bo Jackson)

“The Blood Beyond” by Skeletons in the Piano (Our 2012 Band of the Year – from their latest album, Please Don’t Die)

“Leave it All” by Telepathic Teddy Bear (from his latest – Reactions)

Next up was another track from Chris Schlarb’s Psychic Temple album.  Coming in at 9 minutes plus – we let this song transition us into the Shuffle proper….
Shuffle:

“Dream State > Police State” by Chris Schlarb from Psychic Temple (2010)

 
 
Psychic Temple features a stunning array of players: (via the Noisetrade page): It would not be an exaggeration to boast that Psychic Temple contains performances from some of today’s finest musicians including Mick Rossi of the Philip Glass Ensemble, legendary Minutemen bassist Mike Watt, vocalists Julianna Barwick, DM Stith, Joel St. Julien (of ELLUL), Aaron Roche, trumpeter Kris Tiner, Brian Blade Fellowship pedal steel guitarist Dave Easley, Weird Weeds percussionist Nick Hennies, guitarist Danny Miller and drummer Tabor Allen (of Rare Grooves and The Widow Babies), bassists Steuart Liebig, C.J. Boyd and Anthony Shadduck, and Danny T. Levin and David Moyer on horns.
 
And they had me at Mike Watt…
 
“Shock the Monkey” (Peter Gabriel cover) by Don Ho from When Pigs Fly: Songs You Never Thought You’d Hear (2002)
 
 
 
 
I’m not much I can say about legendary Hawaiian singer, the late Don Ho – covering Peter Gabriel’s 1982 hit song from his fourth album. Except, I will say, I kind of liked it.
 
“East Virginia” by Damian Jurado from Gathered in Song (2006/2007)
 
 
 
I make no secret of the fact that I am a big Damien Jurado fan.  I actually first came across his music by accident – in a way. This song is gorgeous and subtle and well… just great.
 
 
“Cryin’ Like A Fool” by Jerry McCain from Rock ‘n’ Roll Ball (1997)
 

We close out with a track from early rock/blue legend Jerry McCain – he’s cryin’ like a fool… no really!
