So maybe 20 songs in one post was a little excessive…. so I’ll keep it down to 15 today.


“Shit That Matters” by JENNY (the band has a new album called Love and Politics out now)
“Sleeping Through Heaven” by Game Theory (for those keeping track this make 8 Game Theory songs in two days)
“Rest Your Weary Mind” by Elizabeth Cook with Bobby Bare Jr. (Two of Nashville‘s coolest poeple)
“I Still Want a Little More” by Milk Carton Kids (I’m digging on this band lately) 
“You Always Make Me Smile” Kyle Andrews  (Nashville Singer-songwriter, electronic musician)
“Linus and Lucy” by Game Theory (9 in two days – yes it’s the Vince Guaraldi song)
“No Reason” by Jeanette Lynne  (A CXCW alum – When Popatunes  says “Jump”, I say, ‘yeah, right!’. When Popatunes says “check out this music” – I say – ‘hell, yeah!’) 
“Sad Baby Wolf” by Sad Baby Wolf (I love this band and this song is one of my favorites)
“New Jerusalem” by Neighbour (Neighbour is Kacie Williams – Nashville again!)


  • “Dontcu Wanna” by The Joy of Painting from Tender Age EP (2013)

 The New record from The Joy of Painting is called Tender Age which you can Pre-Order using the widget above.  The first single, Dontcu Wanna is available as a Free Download by navigating the bandcamp page.  It’s a good one!

  •  “Falling Apart” by Billy Pilgrim from Bloom (2008)

  • “Complex” By Kyle Andrews from Best of 2006-2012 (2013 Noisetrade)

Nashville is home to a growing list of singer-songwriters who take the city’s propensity toward great songwriting and applies it a wide variety of musical styles. Kyle Andrews is a great example of this.

  • “Museum of Hopelessness” by Game Theory from Lolita Nation (1987)

Ten seconds of sweet sounds…

  • “Girlfriend” by Slim Dunlap from Times Like This (1996)

Minneapolis legend Slim Dunlap who suffered a devastating stroke last year has an incredible musical legacy.  Be sure to check out and support the Songs for Slim releases.

  • “Switzerland” by Bison (The Last Bison) from Quill (2011)/Inheritance (2013)

Okay I don’t have time to figure out the whole Bison/Last Bison thing.  But, whatever, this is a great song and a great way to close the shuffle.

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Hail, Hail Rock and Roll Mix

 Greetings from Sunny and chilly Nashville, Tennessee.  We are back with a real honest to goodness music shuffle, and we’ve loaded up our November playlist with a stellar selection of tunes from the distant past to the up-to-the-minute present.

Star and Micey are a Memphis based alternative/folk/rock/soul – oh hell, they just make damn good music. Today we have a live acoustic version of the song Number 1 which we got from a split Noisetrade sampler the band released with Carolina Story in support of their recently completed Soul Stormin’ Tour.

Here is the band’s recently released record, I Can’t Wait

Here’s Star and Micey from SXSW 2012

Coincidentally, our good friends Skeletons in the Piano posted a recommendation on Facebook to listen to Chuck Berry, and lo and behold, look who’s up in our Morning Shuffle from hours earlier…  We have School Days by the iconic Chuck Berry. It is the lead track from his debut album from 1957 called After School Session.

The always amazing Elizabeth Cook retells the biblical story of Samson and Delilah with the traditional song, If I Had My Way, I’d Tear This Building Down (which has also been recorded as Samson and Delilah most famously perhaps by The Grateful Dead).  Cook’s version of the song appears on her Gospel Plow extended play which was released earlier in 2012.

Current Featured Artist, Diana Lawrence is up next with another song from her To: Aging Children album – the stunningly beautiful Where Am I Growing Up To?

Here’s Diana with The Dishes

The always amazing Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros close out this morning’s shuffle with Give Me a Sign which came to us from the free Community Music Sampler – available via Amazon.

Amazon also has the latest Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros album Here for a mere $5.00


Green Day’s Dos is out and $5.00 at Amazon

Monday Morning Music Shuffle – Funky-Ass Car Mix

If you haven’t yet, and are eligible to, please vote tomorrow.

We have a whopping six songs in today’s shuffle – so let’s get to it!

If Rhode Island and Alt-Country don’t make much sense to you, then you need to familiarize yourself with Providence band Deer Tick, and it will all become clear.  I, myself, was late coming into the Deer Tick fold, but I’ve been hooked ever since that first listen.  Today we open up a jam packed music shuffle with the opening song from the band’s debut album – War Elephant.  The song is Ashamed

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit are like an unstoppable force. Their album Here We Rest was one of the best albums of 2011.  This time, we go back a couple of years to the predecessor – the self-titled album was the first to feature the  400 Unit.  Today, we have Soldiers Get Strange.

All Mod Cons by The Jam is consistently one of my favorite albums of all time. It was released thirty-four years ago this past Saturday, and man oh man does it hold up well.  Today we have the second song on the album To Be Someone (Didn’t We Have a Nice Time).

Elizabeth Cook was born in Wildwood, Florida.  Today, we have a song from Welder her critically acclaimed Don Was produced album which was released back in 2010. The subject of this song is the Chevy vehicle which helped me to get a letter to the editor published in the original print edition of Film Threat magazine.  In case you weren’t aware, the El Camino has appeared in an incredible number of motion pictures over the years. The list is too long to mention, but if you watch movies with an eye out for the car/truck thing, you will begin to notice a trend.  Anyway, Elizabeth Cook’s song is really good.

Detroit Rapper Danny Brown released a non-album single earlier this year.  Grown Up has a sweet, nostalgic bent to it.  It’s good stuff.

And we close out this long set of music with the opening track off The Plimsouls second album, Everywhere At Once.  Shaky City highlights the band’s signature brand of power-pop. 



The New Avett Brothers album, The Carpenter is $5.99 today only at Amazon:
