Monday Morning Music Shuffle – Walking Wogs Mix

Greetings from Nashville!  It’s Monday, and here at E2TG we are mixing things up a bit.  Typically, we shuffle up our “Rolling” playlist (meaning I add new songs and delete songs off the playlist as they come and go), this playlist is a working subset of all of the songs on my MP3 player. (Which in turn is a subset of all the songs in my music collection, but that is another story).  Anyway, today’s shuffle comes from all of the songs on my MP3 player.  We’ll get back to our playlist tomorrow, but I thought it might be interesting to occasionally open up our shuffle and see what happens.


So – let’s jump to it!

“This Song Will Make You Love Me” by The Great American Novel (This is the opening track of the new The Great American Novel album which is released into the world tomorrow.  The album is called 😦 (The Frown Album). The song is a glorious rave-up which is guaranteed to have your feet moving.  I for one am looking forward to :(. – no one is normal, just different types of weird if we could get our weirds together, we could get right outta here” )

“Last Stop” by Black Jake and the Carnies (From Watching, Waiting their most recent release.)

“Wogs Will Walk” by Cornershop (from Handcream for a Generation the 2002 4th album by Tjinder Singh and company.  The album featured Noel Gallagher on guitar.  I really dig this album which fuses, blends and forces together elements of Indie Rock, Eastern music, Reggae, and Hip-Hop into a rich and spicy soup of jamming good times.)

“I Gotta Get Shorty Out of Jail” by Andre Williams and The Sadies (Andre Williams is an Rhythm and Blues legend with a Punk spirit.  This album features Canadian Rock/Country band The Sadies who have also worked with the likes of John Doe and Neko Case )

“Up to Me” by Cosmonauts on Vacation (A Psychedelic/Spacy Rock and Roll band from Birmingham, Alabama)

“I’m Here” by Paul Jefferson (Paul Jefferson is  a country singer and songwriter from Nashville. This song is off his 1996 self-titled debut album)

“Watch Who You’re Calling Space Garbage Meteor Mouth” by Game Theory (a brief – :18 track off the 1987 album Lolita Nation)

“Sad, Like Hearts Can Be” by Evan Voytas (As far as I can tell in my brief “research” this song is not on any of the L.A. Pop artist’s albums)

“Been There Before” by Human Face (We recently got some new music from the UK band Human Face.  This track goes back to their 2012 album The Waiting Game)

“Rave On” by Julian Casablancas (A cover of a Sonny West penned Buddy Holly song.  This cover serves as the title track to the 2011 Tribute album which also featured Lou Reed, Kid Rock and just about everybody in between – and there is a lot of room in between Lou Reed and Kid Rock… just saying)

“My Life” by Dido (this song is off the British singer’s 1999 album No Angel)

Added tons of music to the lineup – so stayed tuned.  

Let’s get to the Shuffle – after the jump:

1.  Thule Fog by John Vanderslice from Green Grow the Rushes (2010)

From a 2010 EP released for free by the Florida-born singer/songwriter. (A different Vanderslice song is on the Amazon Widget above)

2.  Crows by Shelly Colvin from Up the Hickory Down the Pine (2012)
Another great song from a former featured artist on E2TG.  We were fortunate to be able to attend the album release party for this record.
Here’s Colvin with other at Music City Roots

 3.  Dialtone by BELL from DIAMONITE (2011)

Brooklyn based Olga Bell heads up this electro-pop band.  An extended single with a few remixes of this song was released in June 2012.

4.  The System by The Black Pacific from 2010 SideOneDummy Summer Sampler (2010)
From the California punk band’s self-titled debut album…

5.   Paint a Vulgar Picture (Demo) by The Smith from Unreleased Demos and Instrumentals (Bootleg Vinyl Rip) (2010)
 Final version of song appeared on The Smith’s final album, Strangeways, Here We Come.  
6.  East Nashville Skyline by Todd Snider from What the Folk (2005)
Not on his 2004 album of the same name.  Does appear on his 2007 Rarities compilation called Peace, Love and Anarchy.  Name drops some East Nashville haunts from days gone by – also Phoenix Radio.
7.  Ain’t Dumbo by Night Beats from Trouble in Mind’s Stax-O-Trax! (2012)
Originally released on the band’s 2011 eponymous release. Seattle based Garage, Psychedelic, Soul band.

8.  The Way It Never Was by Kim Richey from Glimmer (1999)
A recent Goodwill score.  Kim Richey is an amazingly talented singer-songwriter. Her last album was called Wreck Your Wheels and was released in 2010.  Word is we may see some new music in 2013, and I, for one, cannot wait.  This song is about guaranteed to get into her head and stay… you won’t complain.

9. Younger Us by Japandroids from Cruel Summer: Stereogum Summer Jams 2010 Vol. 1 (2010)

Originally released as a single in July 2010 b/w a cover of X’s Sex and Dying in High Society.  Later released on the band’s 2012 album Celebration Rock. This duo from Vancouver does the modern alternative rock thing pretty darn well.

  10. Heavy Soup (Outro) by Cornershop from Handcream for a Generation (2002)

Groove heavy instrumental from this English band’s fourth album.  This record has become one my favorites.

11. Saturday’s Child by Steve Almaas from Trailer Songs (2012)
ex-Suicide Commando and Beat Rodeo front man released this fresh sounding album last year. Fans of Beat Rodeo will recognize the bright pop vocals and the mildly countryish twang of the music.  I know I’ve had this song in my shuffle before, and hopefully more of the record will show up soon, but I don’t mind hearing it again.

So, here we go… after several months of waiting, I finally have a 32GB card in my phone and to celebrate I added a random 20GB (left room to grow) sampling of my entire digital library and then I randomly shuffled that 20GB and the resulting Morning Music Shuffle is after the jump:

Wilco + Nick Lowe from the stage of the Ryman in Nashville
5.  Wilderland by Anais Mitchell from Young Man in America (One of the best albums of 2012)

9.  The Revolution Will Not Be Televised by Gil Scott-Heron from Ghetto Style (Because it won’t!)
10.  Sounds Super Recordings by Cornershop from Handcream for a Generation (I love me some Cornershop)


Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Hot Tin Cat on a Roof Mix


 We’re short on time today so straight to it.  American Man is the title track from Brother Howe’s latest album.  You can get a free download of this song and the band’s cover of a Weezer song at the band’s website.

Ramona Falls is the band featuring former Menomena remember Brent Knopf.  The band’s new album Prophet is due out May 1, but you can grab a free download of the first track Sqworm using the widget above.

The Great American Canyon Band are a husband and wife team from Chicago.  They recorded their first songs were recorded in a gutted house in Chicago with no running water and just two old guitars.  Use the Soundcloud player to access their music.  Our song today was Burn.

I was late getting on the Cornershop bandwagon, but I love everything I’ve heard from them.  The Singh brothers and company have been making music for over 20 years. Today we have a track from the band’s 1997 albume When I Was Born for the Seventh Time.  Good Shit seem to be an apt description.

Cornershop and the Double-O Groove Of Cornershop and the Double-O Groove Of
Following up Judy Sucks a Lemon for Breakfast in exceedingly timely fashion — a mere two years compared to the seven that separated that 2009 effort from 2002’s Handcream for a Generation — Cornershop capitalize on their Indian tradition, bringing in Bubbley Kaur for a collection of pop with a Punjabi punch. The vocals and flourishes are strongly Punjabi — songs are often sung in the language, not English as they usually are on a Cornershop LP — but these are essentially trappings for a collection of multicultural dance-pop not too dissimilar from the group’s albums since 1997. As on Judy Sucks, this is a blessing and a curse: Cornershop’s blends are still rich and flavorful yet they have the whiff of old fashion, still tied heavily to the post-rave years of trip-hop and Brit-pop, trends they fought and embraced in equal measure. Kaur’s presence gives The Double-O Groove just enough of a different tone to make a difference — it doesn’t feel comfortably recycled as Judy sometimes did — yet it doesn’t quite open doors to new avenues either. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi Performers: Bubbley Kaur – Vocals

The Replacements: All Over But the Shouting: An Oral History The Replacements: All Over But the Shouting: An Oral History
Formed in a Minneapolis basement in 1979, the Replacements were a notorious rock ‘n’ roll circus, renowned for self-sabotage, cartoon shtick, stubborn contrarianism, stage-fright, Dionysian benders, heart-on-sleeve songwriting, and–ultimately–critical and popular acclaim. While rock then and now is lousy with superficial stars and glossy entertainment, the Replacements were as warts-and-all “real” as it got. In the first book to take on the jumble of facts, fictions, and contradictions behind the Replacements, veteran Minneapolis music journalist Jim Walsh distills hundreds of hours of interviews with band members, their friends, families, fellow musicians, and fans into an absorbing oral history worthy of the scruffy quartet that many have branded the most influential band to emerge from the ’80s. Former manager Peter Jesperson, Paul Stark and Dave Ayers of Twin/Tone Records, Bob Mould and Grant Hart of rivals Husker Du, the legendary Curtiss A, Soul Asylum’s Dan Murphy, Lori Barbero of Babes in Toyland, R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, power-pop hero Alex Chilton, Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, and replacement Replacements Slim Dunlap and Steve Foley: all have something to say about the scene that spawned the band. These and dozens of others offer insights into the Replacement’s workings–and the band’s continuing influence more than fifteen years after their breakup. Illustrated with both rarely seen and classic photos, this, finally, is the rollicking story behind the turbulent and celebrated band that came on fast and furious and finally flamed out, chronicled by one eyewitness who was always at the periphery of the storm, and often at its eye. ” T]his consistently engaging and poignant work . . . . is a] loving, appropriately ramshackle tribute to one of the most beloved rock-and-roll bands of the 1980s. . . . The band’s story is an archetype of the joys and pitfalls of underground success.”–“Publishers Weekly” “The Replacements were superheroes: They rescued a whole planet from ’80s music. Jim Walsh’s loving, engrossing oral history is the book they deserve.”–Nick Hornby, author of “High Fidelity”
