Wednesday Morning Music Shuffle – Silly Boys Mix

We have a bunch of cool songs by some silly boys and one not so silly, but very talented woman.  Let’s go!

“Falling” by Pork Chop Willie from Love is the Devil

Another great track from the album which came out earlier this year.  You need to hear this.

“Silly Boys” by Holy Modal Rounders from Last Round

How about this?  New York psychedelic folk duo – who have collaborated with Sam Shepard among others.  This song is from their 1978 album.

“Head” by The Orwells from Other Voices EP

Think Rock and Roll is dead?  Have you not heard The Orwells?

“Medicine Springs” (Stanley Brother Cover) by Sturgill Simpson from 2014-05-13 – Grimey’s Records – Nashville, TN

Think Country music sucks? Have you not heard Sturgill Simpson?

“Who Woulda Thunk It?” (Greg Brown Cover) by Grant Peeples and the Peeples Republik from Punishing the Myth

One of my highlights of AMA week was being introduced to the music of and meeting Grant Peeples.  This is the only cover on his incredible album – of which you will be hearing lots more – and it’s a good one.  I never complain about a cover song when it is a Greg Brown song being covered.

“А где мне взять такую песню” by Orera from 1970

Ya’ll I seriously love this music – more from this amazing Georgian folk/jazz group who recorded back in the 1970s or so.

“White Gardenias” by Justin Townes Earle from NoiseTrade Eastside Manor Session/Single Mothers

 
 

Okay it got cropped out of the picture, but it is the time, I shared the front page of No Depression with Justin Townes Earle. This is a song from his brand new album recorded in a special session for NoiseTrade at Eastside Manor.  Trivia: The photo of the cover of his new album was taken at a Nashville park commonly known as Dragon Park.  This park was also featured in the album art of one of R.E.M.’s albums.

 


“Blue Light of the Fire” by Heather Powell from Believe it to Life

Heather Powell has an amazing voice, and it is always good to have her in the shuffle.

“Don’t Think About Her When You’re Trying to Drive” by Little Village from Little Village

Good advice from the Little Village

“Following the Plan” by bellwire from Following the Plan

This seems to be the latest song from New Hampshire based bellwire.  It’s a cool powerpop song. If you aren’t hip to these guys – definitely check them out.

Mouth by JWM 7/21/2013
Friday – we listened to our usual morning mix, even created a YouTube playlist and then the day got crazy and we never wrote a post. So, I’ve made an executive decision (as this blog is one of the few places I am allowed to make executive decisions.  All the songs from Friday are back in the mix (some even showed up today).

“True Blue” by Bright Eyes from Lua (2004)

“I am a blue blood I will admit that.
I dance in blue shoes and wear a blue hat.
Live in a blue house, on a blue street,
in a blue town by a blue creek.
I write my blue songs with my blue pen.
I sing the blue notes to my blue friends.
Now I don’t know that much about you,
but I like you because you’re true blue.”

“Howling At the Moon (Sha-La-La)” by Ramones from Too Tough to Die (1984)
