Thursday Morning Music Shuffle – Are you Sure? Mix

Greetings from Thursday! The month is almost half over. Look for a Band of the Month poll to roll out within the next day or so.  In the meantime, I know I’ve been slacking off on the Featured Artist posts – so I hope to have one this afternoon.

This morning, we have an eclectic mix of music. And here we go…

Slowcore band Codeine broke up in 1994 after three releases.  The New York band recently announced a reunion gig at the I’ll Be Your Mirror festival in London, and the band’s catalog is getting the reissue treatment with some bonus material.  A download of one of those bonus tracks is out. The song, Median is from a Peel Session, and according to the information I’ve seen, it will appear on the reissue of the band’s first EP Barely Real. Stereogum can hook you up with a download of Median.

When you are named after the late and great Townes Van Zandt and are the son of the great Steve Earle and decide to get into music, you have some pretty big shoes to fill and some huge expectations to fulfill. Fortunately, Justin Townes Earle rises to the occasion and in the process makes you forget everything but his music. 
Maria is a track on Justin’s most recent album, Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now.
Black on Blues is a forthcoming (July 17) Black Keys tribute album.  The album will feature everyone from Cajun artist Doug Kershaw, Tab Benoit, Albert Lee, and Pat Travers.  First up though and out for your preview is a pretty straight-on cover of the first Single from the Black Key’s latest album, El Camino.  Lonely Boy is covered here by head Stooge, Iggy Pop and ex-Cream and Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker.
And next, we have track from the new album by Nashville Rock Supergroup – The Bluefields which is on the band’s first album – Pure. Our track today is called Nobody Loves You.
