Hey ho!  It’s Trendy  Trending Tuesday at E2TG.  This will have to be a quick one.  Lots of music and not much time.

“Black Butterflies” by Angeline

French-born, London based singer-songwriter with a beautiful track from her EP Back to Pike Place.

“Like Thelma and Louise” by Lori Kelley

One of my favorite songs from the More album by Nashville songwriter-singer Lori Kelley.

“Unwanted Man” by Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen

One more from Love and Life – trippy blues that seems to drip with honeysuckle and humidity.

“Napoleon” by Angela Burns

Angela Burns is from Austin – she has some impressive film credentials.   This is her debut musical release – a mixtape called So That You Can Feel Better.  A very unique style.  I like this quite a bit.

“Game Over” by Jeremy Nash

Another track from Getaway Driver, the recent album by Nashville/New York singer-songwriter Jeremy Nash.

“Shadows Past” by Elephant Revival

From the live project, Sands of Now – Colorado Americana/Indie Folk band Elephant Revival.

“Let’s Stick Together” by Luella

Another from Luella – here dueting with Tim Carroll on a cover of a Bryan Ferry song that was a cover of a Wilbert Harrison song.  Luella and Tim make it all their own.

“What They Gonna Say” by Nellie Clay

Another great song from Never Did What I Should Have Done. Nellie came to Nashville from Oklahoma after a several year stop over in Alaska.  Great music from a really cool person.

“Ride the Dragon” by Iced Ink

Ride the Dragon is nine seconds long.  Sounds like a pretty good rodeo ride… From Willie Nelson Prince.

“On Its Way” by Outta the Furnace

Our second listen to these hard/blues rocking Virginians.

“Rainbow Over The East-Side” by Amelia White

A gorgeous song from Home Sweet Hotel.  The video is from last summer at Music City Roots. A bunch of familiar faces in the band.

“The Great Space Fight” by Discount Ravioli

Once again, since Discount Ravioli seems to eschew videos, I found a 7 year video of the Nork kids.  This one an interview at a corn maze.  🙂

Heritage Blues Orchestra with Special Guest Keb Mo
 
 
Took in a great show last night at the historic Franklin Theatre in Downtown Franklin, TN.  The show marked the first ever Nashville area appearance of the Heritage Blues Orchestra from New York City. Their music incorporated traditional Blues tunes with some jazz-inspired arrangements to create a very diverse and fun night of music.  The guitar work of Junior Mack was outstanding, the vocals were out of this world.  Special Guest Keb Mo was incredible.
 
 
To close out the week, we have pretty cool Featured Friday shuffle that is a good mix that includes songs sent to me by some of the most consistently awesome publicists from whom I get music along with some awesome songs from of the immensely talented friends I’ve made on this journey of music and life.

“Kohly” by Angeline

Angeline (with an accent mark, I am too lazy to figure out how to type) is a French born singer-songwriter now living in London.  Her new EP is called, Back to Pike, and this is actually the short instrumental prelude included as the first track.  I personally love having introductions and instrumental preludes etc. included in the shuffle… makes for some fun transitions.  Looking forward to featuring the rest of the EP soon. 

“Master Drone” by The Unravelling

Speaking of interesting transitions.  The previously mentioned prelude served as a precursor to this Heavy Rocking track from Calgary based The Unravelling. The song is loud and pounding and crunching… a great way to get me geared up for my Friday work day… 

“Wired for Fun” by Bark

What do you do when you are a badass bass player? You take up the drums! At least that is what Susan Bauer Lee did last year, and out of that her and husband Tim Lee formed a side project to their band, Tim Lee 3 – called Bark.  Bark released their debut EP earlier this year, and Wired for Fun is on that record.  I dig it.

“Two Heads” by The Jackals

We have another track from Scottish band, The Jackals from their new record, People.  Awesome Cosmic Rock and Roll from across the pond.

“The River” by Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen

Remember when I reviewed Love and Life?  In case you missed it, or need a refresher… here it is.  It is very refreshing to hear artists like Scissormen and the Heritage Blues Orchestra upholding traditional roots music while simultaneously pushing into forward and keeping the music not just remembered but alive.

“Better Walk Right” by James Tomberlin

Still Life with Orange is both a great record (produced by E2TG fave/friend Josh Morris) and a consolation to the fact that James no longer lives in Nashville.  He is off preparing to set the world ablaze with his legal brilliance. I met James a little over a year ago, when Darrin Bradbury introduced him as a great songwriter. Darrin was neither lying or overstating.  James voice and guitar playing create a rich and unique soundscape for his brilliant songs.

“For What That’s Worth” by Patrick Kinsley and a Fistful of Dollars

Remember when I reviewed For a Thousand Miles?  Here is where to find that review. Patrick Kinsley is another of those brilliant songwriters that I have met in Nashville over the past year or so. He is well read, insightful, has a unique voice, and is backed by a great sounding band.
