Thursday Morning Music Shuffle – Blue Line Mix



Some how the release of the new Those Mockingbirds single – “How to Rob a Bank” got past me.  The single is out and it rocks every bit as hard as one would expect from Those Mockingbirds. If you don’t know what to expect from Those Mockingbirds, expect THE ROCK.  Seriously. But, now that the song is out there is no need to take my word for it.  Unless you need the validation of a high profile taste-maker – in which case, you have come to the right place. 😉 
 
Give it a listen:
 
 
 
Here is a live performance captured on video
 
 
 
Now, we have a cool shuffle – so let’s get to it!
 
After the break

 
“My Blood Ain’t Runnin’ Right” by Black Joe Lewis  (from NoiseTrade Eastside Manor Sessions. A track from his album Electric Slave. Black Joe Lewis is the real deal.  Austin, Texas)
 
“Stockholm” by Jason Isbell (from Southeastern. Yes, yes, and yes. Nashville is proud to a share Mr. Isbell with Muscle Shoals, Alabama.)
 
“Blue Line” by Let’s Active (from Cypress.  A true classic from this underrated and under-appreciated band led by the awesome Mitch Easter. Look for a youthful, Tim Lee of Tim Lee Three in the accompanying video – in the playlist down below – which was taken from an episode of the old MTV show IRS Records Presents The Cutting Edge – a show which was highly influential to the impressionable youth who used to be me.  Winston-Salem, NC)
 
“Wasted and Rollin'” by Amanda Shires (from Down Fell the Doves. Mrs. Jason Isbell – or is it vice-versa?  Nashville is very proud to claim her.  Talk about a Nashville power couple! Whoseit and Whatsit on ABC’s Nashville have nothing on these two.  Nashville, TN)
 
“You Will Be Here, Mine” by Will Johnson (from Scorpion. Since finally catching on to the awesome band Centro-Matic which Will Johnson leads, I’ve had to take crash course in his impressive credentials and music. Scorpion was released in 2012.  Coming soon to a Living Room near you – included one in Nashville on November 4. Austin, Texas)
 
A cool mix of music – coincidentally all from the South – if Texas is considered the South)
