We’re back.  It’s been almost a week since the last shuffle.  Since that post, we saw an awesome if all too brief set from Black Jake and the Carnies and we scanned in some old Spin magazine clippings from the mid-80s. One post about the Minutemen has received over 120 “likes” since Saturday afternoon.

But, we are rested and rejuvenated and ready to bring you the constant variety of music.


Вийди, Вийди, Іванку (Vyjdy, Vyjdy, Ivanku)” by Katarina Ljahovic, Mike Romaniak, Patrick Power, Stephen Kreuger from Нема ні Шнурочка (Nema Ni Shnurochka) (2012)  – More great Ukrainian folk music featuring Patrick Power of Valued Customer and my Instagram friend Stephen Kreuger.

“Lady Luck Death Dance” by Coastwest Unrest from Old Weird America (2010) – there is a real Velvet Undergroundish feel to this song.  Love it.

“Nobody” by Cecile McLorin Salvant from WomanChild (2013)

“Nowhere” by Tipi Valley from Rock ‘n’ Roll Live On (2013)  – Nobody, Nowhere, Noway, Nohow! 😉

“Shut Up” by Savages from Silence Yourself (2013)

“Shout it Out” by Mikal Cronin from MCII (2013)

“The War Within” by Churchill from The War Within (2013)

“The Fire Pit” by Ben Shive from The Cymbal Crashing Clouds (2011)

“Humiliation” by The National from Trouble Will Find Me (2013)

Shuffle begins in 3… 2… 1… JUMP

  • “Capsized” by Richmond Fontaine from Thirteen Cities (2007)

An Alt-County band from Portland, Oregon who have been around since the mid-90s.  This song came from this month’s Feel Band for You compilation.

  • “Hold You in My Arms” by Great Divide from Great Divide (2013)
I think I’ve mentioned it, but it bears (get it – the album cover) repeating, I love this record. What a laid back chill way to start a Monday morning.

  • “The Lonesome Tale of Bacchus Lee (My Friend) by Coastwest Unrest from Old Weird America (2010)

Another great track from this Las Vegas band. We grabbed both songs in today’s mix on a Noisetrade compilation.

Well May is winding down and I’m frantically trying to clear out my playlist so I can start pretty fresh for June 1. Of course, as always, I’m adding faster than I can clear out… but it keeps me going…



“Hill County Girl” by Will Kimbrough (achingly and stunningly beautiful song from Kimbrough’s 2007 EP)

“Change (JT Daly Remix)” by Churchill (from a Noisetrade Remix Collection)

“Love and War (Tangled)” by New Victorians (Two lovers during WWII London, a string section, and a band)

“Tracks” by Trapper Schoepp and the Shades (Milwaukee Rock!)

“Heart” by Mystery Twins (1/2 of Nashville band, The Clutters, from my Twitter to you in a matter of hours – you’re welcome!)

“Change (Acoustic)” by Churchill (a stripped down version of the second song on today’s pre-shuffle – digging it – They are from Denver)

“Bo Diddley” by Bo Diddley (Cause nobody does it better)

“Anymore” by Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats (Progressive PsychoBilly Folk Grass from Boise)

  • “Cruel Movements” by JoDee Purkeypile from Messenger (2013)

Austin, Texas singer/songwriter from his most recent release. ““Cruel Movements” was composed on piano in the aftermath of a “strange” night out with old friends.”

  • “The Way We Move – Solo Acoustic” by Langhorne Slim from This is the Way We Move (Noisetrade sampler – original version on The Way We Move (2012)

A glorious stripped down version of one of my favorite songs of the past couple of years.

  • “Pass on My Love” by Magnolia Sons from Free (2011)

Another great Nashville band – doing the retro-soul thing.  This one had me dancing up the hill.

  • “Tangled Up in Blue” by Bob Dylan from Blood on the Tracks (1975)

A great way to end the morning mix… one of my absolute, all-time favorite songs.
