So for Christians, this is the season of Lent, and I’m hearing a lot of people talking about what they are giving up. So here at Ear to the Ground, we’ve made a decision. From now until Easter we will not post any music by Justin Bieber. It’s going to be difficult, but I guess the idea is that such sacrifice will bring us closer to God. So here we go with the first of many Bieber-free music shuffles.
First we have Streetwalker by Delta Spirit. The song comes from the band’s first EP – I Think I’ve Found It. A newer version of the sound was included on the full-length debut album Ode to Sunshine which we have linked below. We got the EP version off a no longer available Noisetrade download.
Next up, we have the brand new Jack White solo track Love Interruption from his forthcoming album Blunderbuss – which was also the title of a Will & the Bushmen album. Coincidence?
After Jack White, we got a fine rollicking country-flavored track which we got via Popa’s Tunes Popakazooza 2012 volume 2. Nikki Sue & the Bad News are yet another great New Jersey band. Here’s a link to the band’s website.
Our current Band of the Week are back with In the Woods from their Led into the Wood – seven song EP.
And finally we have The Signal by E L E M I N T. The original version is on the Poet Tree EP.
We listened to the Broadcast remix of the song by our Soundcloud friend Galen Wade which you can hear here: https://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F35502001 Elemint – The Signal [ Broadcast Remix by Galen Wade ] by Galen Wade
