Blah… Morning Music shuffle is back after a brief interlude due to a bit of the mid-summer blahs.
And, it’s time for our Featured Friday edition – week 2 for August, as we delve into some music from our Featured Artists of the Month. We have a plethora of great music, so let’s get to it.
First up, we have a pleasant little serial killer? folksy-ballad from Loners Society. It’s called Jersey Devil, and I’m digging the sound of this one. Just give a listen, but if you are someone who needs a frame of reference, Blitzen Trapper is the band that first came to my mind when I heard this song. But, whatever, it’s a nifty song… Jersey Devil is the b-side to the Pinstripes 7″ which you can grab right here:
Next up, we shift gears and come up with a searing, soaring rock instrumental from the band, Traverse the Skies. Grey Knight has a larger than life feel to it, and it made a great accompaniment to a cloudy walk up the hill.
I hope you are buckled in, because our wild ride takes up down to New Mexico, and a song by our new friends The Imperial Rooster – DWI Marijuana Blues. Would it be totally inappropriate for me to say that this song could be dedicated to Randy Travis? If it is inappropriate, remember, I said it, not the Roosters! Anyway, the song is a rollicking, amped up foot-stomper of a song, and like everything I’ve heard from The Imperial Rooster, it’s a helluva good time. It’s another fine track from their Decent People album.
And finally, we close today’s Featured Friday shuffle with a song from Pony Boy. We presented Saints and Liars by Pony Boy before, but this gorgeous example of West Coast bluesy, Rock is worth hearing again.
