No “Shuffle” because I got a ride from the car dealership to my office, but we did have a “Pre-Shuffle” which I guess makes the “Pre-Shuffle” just a “Shuffle”… or maybe I’m over-thinking… again.

 Legendary Los Angeles band X announced this morning that they are going on tour with legendary New York band Blondie.  The tour includes a stop at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville…   I wonder if my Facebook “friendship” with DJ Bonebrake will help me score tickets?  

Today’s Shuffle includes a delightful mix of Pop and Punk but no necessarily Pop-Punk plus some that may or may not be considered Pop or Punk, but I’ll leave that for you to decide.

The (Pre?) Shuffles commences in THREE, TWO, ONE… JUMP!

 Old World Romance is the name of the latest album from L.A. Indie Folk band Sea Wolf, however, our first song of today’s mix “Old World Romance” by Sea Wolf is not found on that album. Rather it is available on a sampler with Outtakes via Noisetrade.com.


This gorgeous melody was a great start to the day, and the loveliness continued with the second song.

“To Dust” is from the Always This album by Joshua Worden.  We’ve been playing the hell out of this smooth soulful album.  “To Dust” highlights Worden sound nicely.


After a couple of beautiful smooth songs, I was ready for a change of pace. Fortunately, my good friend (the Shuffle mode) was ready with a track from the Ramone’s self-titled album. “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” is one of the slower songs on that record and a nifty slice of classic Rock ‘n’ Roll.


Toronto-based, Dublin-born Frank Ryan delivers some serious smack with the title track from his latest release, “Dirty Little Liar” – a very good funky rock track.
We head back into our Ramones collection but jump ahead about a decade with the title track from the band’s ninth studio album, “Animal Boy” which was released in 1986.  The song is 1:50 of hyped-up and harder edged punk. Time is funny because where as now-a-days ten years doesn’t seem so long ago, at the time, it seemed as if the Ramones had been around forever.


We first caught up with the Indie Pop band Canopy Climbers who are from three different cities in Tennessee and Arkansas (based upon my interpretation of their Facebook Page), when we downloaded the song, “Stuck” off of the Brite Revolution site. This past weekend, we downloaded a Noisetrade Sampler from the band’s then forthcoming album Miles.  The band caught up with me and was generous enough to offer up an advanced copy of the whole album.  Well, we can report a couple of things.  This is a strong album with some very good songs, and Miles is no longer forthcoming as of today.  We heard the title track which serves as a good way to introduce the brand, spanking new album to you.


The E2TG pendulum swings back in the Punk Rock direction with our next song, “Hooray for Me” is from the eighth studio album by LA punk rock band Bad Religion. Released in 1994, Stranger Than Fiction proved to be a break-through for the band.

 We close out this singular Shuffle of the day with some emotional Philly Country music. “Bittersweet” is on the recent album by Couch by Couchwest alum, Jeanette Lynne called You’ve Got Me.  A delightful change of pace and a great way to close out this shuffle.
