Full-Ride Friday Music Shuffle – Covered in Dust Mix

I didn’t sleep particularly well last night, and so I knew I would need some cool tunes to make it through the morning commute. With that in mind, I decided to run my usual shuffle for the full ride into work, and thus was born a new feature* at Ear to the Ground called Full-Ride Friday (hashtag #frf – patent pending** – void where prohibited) **there is not patent pending…!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”);

* Bloggers Note: I sure hope no one notices that about 90% of the time I announce I new feature, it never appears again.  If they notice, they may realize that I’m just making this up as I go around and thus may figure out that I’m not a real music blogger.

Anyway, I hit shuffle and 21 songs later, I made to my desk to begin my day…   Go past the jump to experience the first (and maybe last) ever Full-Ride Friday Shuffle!

“19” by Meenk from Scamu Scau

Meenk contacted me by e-mail a while back, and I love this EP.  It’s taken the shuffle function a little while to get into the game, but I’m happy to feature two songs to close out today’s shuffle.

“I drank half a beer and I’m only nineteen
I’m sorry for putting you all in such danger”

“Up” by Meenk from Scamu Scau

“More people have been up on the moon than felt the way I feel”
