Well, it’s Monday.  This morning we have eight songs that cross over genre lines, decades and degrees of popularity/obscurity/awesomeness. Taken individually, the songs featured are sure to evoke feelings of nostalgia, joy, revulsion and confusion. Put together as a single shuffle, they are sure to amaze and amuse in equal measure.  Oh heck, here’s the shuffle dig on it if you will….  Jump first!

  • “I.O.U.” by The Replacements from Pleased to Meet Me (1987)

“You see I want it in writing, I owe you nothing”  As documented in Tommy Womack’s song about the band, seeing The Replacements live was a hit or miss proposition.  They could either be the greatest rock and roll bands ever (which in fact they were) or the show could be a complete shambles. When the band rolled into the National Guard Armory in Nashville, TN on the Pleased to Meet Me tour, Rex Silo, Boyd and I drove up from Cookeville and witnessed one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.  By this time, Slim Dunlap had replaced Bob Stinson. I remember it being incredibly hot in the building, and I still remember the exhilaration of heading out of the show and beginning our drive home.

  •  “I Should Have Known” by Foo Fighters from Wasting Light (2011)

“Damn my heart gone deaf” What to say, this is big-time rock music from the former Nirvana drummer.  Dave Grohl is now also a documentary filmmaker whose directorial debut is the 2013 film Sound City.

  • “Adult Living” by Slug Guts from Playin’ in Time With the Deadbeat (2012)

“Every time I need you I just stay up gone” Noise rock from Brisbane, Australia. This was from Slug Guts third album which was released last July.

“She puts the sweetness in and stirs it with a spoon” The 1969 classic from the eponymously titled debut album by the British progressive rock band as performed by a couple of modern iconic singer-songwriters part of their cover albums collaboration.
  •   “Built to Rock” by Red Hot Rebellion from Red Hot Rebellion (2012)

She don’t care about the latest trends She don’t care about your stupid friends” Real honest to goodness ROCK music from this Dayton, Ohio trio.  Yeah!

  •  “Rockin’ the Suburbs” by Ben Folds from Rockin’ the Suburbs (2001)

    “shake your booty while the band complains” I don’t really know why I like this song so much, but I do.  Ya’ll don’t know what it’s like…

    • “When I’m Stoned” by Tipi Valley from Beautiful Sunrise (2012)

    We love Tipi Valley.  This is from one of two EPs he put out in 2012.  Some awesome shoegazey rock from Swansea, Wales UK.  The video above is for a different Tipi Valley song.

    •   “Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again” (Bob Dylan cover) by Cat Power from I’m Not There (Music from the Motion Picture) (2007)

    “When Ruthie says come see her/In her honky-tonk lagoon/Where I can watch her waltz for free/’Neath her Panamanian moon” A great cover of a great song from a great soundtrack to a great film. What else can I say.  Cat Power rules!


    Friday Morning Music Shuffle – 24 Carat Gold Tears of a Rapper Mix

    Ah… Record Store Day is nigh. Get thee to a Record Store near you and show some brick and mortar love.  If you are in or around Nashville, I’ll be hanging out around Grimey’s most of the day, so come down and join me.

    I have tons to do today, so I will jump right into the morning shuffle:

    If all I knew about Skeletons in the Piano is that they’ve been playing some shows with our good friends, The End Men, well, that in and of itself would denote the awesomeness of this band from Upstate New York. Fortunately, I have had that assessment confirmed with the ample evidence which is their music. They have a new video which is a cover of Eleanor Rigby Which I know you can find with my help, but oh what the hell…

    Today’s song is from the Band’s Stranger On a Damned Staircase album. The song is The Old Hound Dog.

    We move on now… to the always Chan Marshall who records as Cat Power.  Today’s song is the title track from her 2006 album (a collaboration with several Memphis R&B musicians). The Greatest is a subtle, tender song that showcases Cat Power’s unique voice.

    Song number three is the hilarious Hurt Feelings by New Zealand Comedy duo Flight of the Conchords. It’s off of their 2009 second album, I Told You I Was Freaky.
    And finally, we close out today’s shuffle with Danish punk rockers, Iceage with the title track from their debut album from last year called New Brigade. I love the old school punk rock being infused with fresh, new energy.

    Legendary filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai directs Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz, and Norah Jones in his first English-language feature film — a romantic road movie detailing the cross-country journey of a woman who sets off across the United States in hopes of mending her broken heart. Elizabeth (Jones) has just been through a particularly nasty breakup, and now she’s ready to leave her friends and memories behind as she chases her dreams across the country. In order to support herself on her journey, Elizabeth picks up a series of waitress jobs along the way. As Elizabeth crosses paths with a series of lost souls whose yearnings are even greater than her own — including a troubled cop (David Strathairn), his estranged wife (Rachel Weisz), and an embittered gambler (Natalie Portman) — their emotional turmoil ultimately helps her gain a greater understanding of her own problems. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie – a.k.a. Flight of the Conchords – may be “New Zealand’s 4th Most Popular Folk Parody Duo,” but in the USA, finding someone who knows their act is about as easy as finding a kiwi nest in Central Park. To rectify this oversight, Jemaine and Bret have moved to New York’s East Village to conquer America, one fan (literally) at a time.
