Welcome back.  Well, this should be the last late post of the week.  Plus, my new bluetooth earphones came in today. So the shuffle will be continue onward unabated.

So some of you have asked about the integrity of the E2TG “Earie” Awards.  The ballots are stored in a secret and remote location watched over by a team of trained seals. Unlike some of the fancy awards, we could not afford a Certified Accountant to monitor our processes, so we went with a certifiable accountant.  Did I ever mention that I am an accountant.  Seriously though, the whole process takes place inside my head, and that is as remote and secret as it gets.

Today’s award:  I’m calling it the “Mott the Hoople” Award aka the “All the Young Dudes” Award.

The premise:  No premise really, just an award to some of the young dudes who made cool music in 2015.  (keep in mind, I’m getting up there in age so “young” is a term that is more broadly defined everyday, but these dudes qualify by my standards…

The Award goes to:

1.  Josh Morris – When (former E2TG Featured Artist) And the Giraffe parted ways, Josh Morris turned his attention to his solo work.  Green Fields was released early in the year,  Morris has new music in the works that promises a change in direction from Green Fields.  In addition, Morris is quickly making a name for himself as a go-to producer.

2.  James Tomberlin – When James Tomberlin left town to return to school, he left a unique but significant hole in the Nashville songwriting community.  Fortunately, before he left town, he recorded a album, Still Life With Orange which by the way was produced by Josh Morris.  I, for one, though, miss his arcane and sophisticated sense of humor.

3.  Patrick Kinsley – For a Thousand Miles is flat out one of my favorite albums of 2015.  It is an excellent showcase for the mass of contradictions that is Patrick Kinsley.  Earnest heartland flavored rock and roll music with simple but intelligent lyrics and a deep emotional resonance.  The album is a journey.

4.  Zachariah Red –  The new Zach Red album is due out just after the first of the year, and I can’t wait.  But, his single, “40 Miles” was released just in time for the totally fictional “Earie” deadline.  Bringing the wisdom and work ethic of a Wisconsin carpenter, the energy of a former punk rocker, and songwriting chops, Zachariah Red plays real country music effortlessly.

(There a couple of other people who might qualify for this award, but I may have something else in mind for them)….

To the shuffle:

“Introduction of Band” by Darrin Bradbury

2014 Artist of the Year and 2015 “Earie” award winner, Darrin Bradbury introduces his band on the live album, Tur-Lyfe: A Live Recording of Unfortunate Events.  At the time was called Los Angels.

“The Grand Optimist” by City and Colour

From that mega-download of World Cafe Sessions comes City and Colour  with a song from their 2011 album, Little Hell.

“Sing Along” by Robert Ellis

I first saw Robert Ellis at American Fest a few years ago.  Later, he opened for Richard Thompson at City Winery, and then I saw him as part of Traveler at their Basement East show earlier this year.  This is one of my favorite songs of his.

“Watch Dog” by Amy Black

From her Muscle Shoals Sessions albun, Amy Black – covering a song which Etta James recorded on her 1968 album Tell Mama which was recorded by FAME Studios.

“Boss Board” by Burt Rocket

Some hot, surf music from Norway!

“Houses on the Hill” by Ryan Adams

From Life After Deaf the live Ryan Adams boxset, we have a moving version of a song that originally appeared on the second Whiskeytown album.

“All This Wandering Around” by Ivan and Alyosha

From their album, It’s All Just Pretend.  More great music from the Seattle band.

“Peter Gunn” by Roy Buchanan

Blues guitarist Pat Buchanan with his take on the Henry Mancini penned theme from “Peter Gunn”.

“Hearts Too Heavy” by John Moreland

High on Tulsa Heat is one of the best albums of 2015 and John Moreland just may be one of this generations greatest songwriters.

Mid-week, and some rain to hopefully break the heat a little… On tap tonight, week 3 of Kevn Kinney’s month-long residency at The 5 Spot in East Nashville – tonight featuring the one and only Lydia Lunch!

On to the shuffle…

“Blood on Your Bootheels” by Caroline Rose

The always amazing Popa’s Tunes alerted me a while back that the NPR program World Café was opening up their archives and offering a 100-song download of performances from the show. For me it has been a goldmine in terms of hearing awesome performances of some long-time favorites, but most especially for turning me on to some artists I have never heard before – like Caroline Rose.  “Blood on Your Bootheels” is the lead track from her album I Will Not Be Afraid which was released about a year ago.

“Traveler’s Prayer” by Jesse and Noah

We have another track from Jesse and Noah in the shuffle today.  This one is from their 2012 album Driven Back.  Jesse and Noah has some of the best harmonies around today.

“Be Your Man” by Ivan and Alyosha

From Jesse and Noah to Ivan and Alyosha. One are the sons/nephews of The Bellamy Brothers and the other is a band from the Pacific Northwest named for characters in a Dostoyevsky. I will leave it to you to figure out which is which.  In any event, Ivan and Alyosha have found success with their catchy brand of indie folk/pop.

“Glow in the Dark” by KATO

KATO makes some dreamy hip-hop music out of L.A.  This song came to me from a submission made by the director of the video that accompanies this track – Owen Schwartzbard.  Since, the video is on Vimeo and not You Tube, I decided to add it here.

Produced by Mike Derenzeo (@mderenzo)

KATO is ijhmanwycoff@gmail.com

“Jack Hammer” by The Odds

My familiarity with The Odds goes back to their debut album Neopolitan, and subsequently seeing them open for and back up Warren Zevon when I saw him back in the early 90s.  This song is the lead track from their sophomore effort which I missed out on due to life that was happening at the time.

“Georgia Rae” by John Hiatt

Another one from Slow Turning. This one is named for and about one of his daughters.

“Repeat” by Denny Zeitlin

And we close out the shuffle today with this track which was the lead track of the 1964 debut album by jazz pianist and composer Denny Zeitlin.  A pretty sweet way to ease into my work day…

Did you know that Ear to the Ground contributes over $500,000 to the economy every month?  And that we employee over 500 full-time and an additional 500 part time employees?   Okay… none of  that is true, but it does keep me busy and thus (mostly) out of trouble – which is in and of itself a good public service. 

Apologies for the untruths… but they were just little white lies which not coincidently leads us directly into the first song from our shuffle…

“White Lies” by Jason and the Scorchers

Although no video exists, I often pretended to be Warner Hodges while playing air-guitar to songs like this one back in my young days.  If you really want to visualize that, just remember I was significantly skinnier back then…   From Lost and Found.

“Rich” by Royal Teeth

Royal Teeth return to the shuffle.  This time with a song that did not appear on the band’s debut album Glow (I hope I got that right).  The recording (and video in the playlist below) are from a World Café Session and was recorded in the band’s hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana (which coincidently is where my parents lived when they were first married).  They play a pretty infectious brand of Indie, Dance, Pop. 

“Drop” by Elephant Revival

Elephant Revival – besides being about the 3rd or 4th band we’ve featured on #E2TG with Elephant as part of their name – are a high-energy folk/Americana band from Colorado.   The song was first released on the band’s 2010 album Break in the Clouds… the recording in the shuffle is taken from the forthcoming live CD/DVD called Sands of Now which are scheduled for release a week from today.

“On My Way” by Ivan and Alyosha

The Seattle Folk-Pop band are up next with one of their catchiest songs – from their 2013 album All the Times We Had.

“Crooked Mountains” by Tom Schreck

Nashville singer-songwriter Tom Schreck has a birthday today!  How does my random shuffle know these things?  He is one my favorite local writers, and this song is from his album Save Your Glory. Happy Birthday Tom!

“Rocky Island” by The Barefoot Movement

When you meet a band for the first time randomly at the Cash Cabin, and walk away charmed by their personality and with a couple of CDs of their music, you have a good feeling.  Fortunately, the music backs all that up.  This song is a traditional song from the band’s EP The High Road which features six traditional songs.

“I Don’t Want Nobody” by Rich Robbins (feat. Dantrell Cotton) (prod. Since ’93)

Rich Robbins, who I have been following now for a couple of years (we first met him when he was billed as Christian Robins), speaks his truth and does so brilliantly and beautifully. His debut album Nimbus features some pretty heady stuff, and is definitely worth a listen.   We dug deeper for the video – pulling up “Suburban Trap Rat” which was on a mixtape which first introduced us to this young man. 

“You Are Who You Are” by A Boy Named Banjo

We close out the day and the week with a young Nashville band who recently performed at Bonnaroo.  I got to see them a couple of months back at City Winery as part of a Ben Bullington tribute put on by their bassist Abe Scott’s father, Darrell Scott.

Last night, I took in a fine show at 3rd and Lindsley with East Nashville songwriter Aaron Lee Tasjan opening for the legendary Ray Wylie Hubbard.  And, yes this was as badass awesome as it sounds like it would be… but don’t take my word for it… okay, take my word for it… read my review at No Depression

Tonight I am seeing some up and comer named Bob Dylan. Heard some good things about him…

Shuffle-wise, we start off the week with some good stuff.

“Been Lookin’ For” by Whiskey Shivers

I’ve noticed that some #E2TG favorites like Francie Moon  and Black Jake and the Carnies have been opening up for Whiskey Shivers on their current tour.  I knew I liked Whiskey Shivers for some reason… or something like that.  Cool stuff…

“Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv” by Batkhi Dahn

Proving I’m not that hip, I had to Google the title of this song from Batkhi Dahn’s awesome new record, Plays 15.  The title refers to an internet legend about a mysterious You Tube video and a curse of some kind.  If you are curious you can Google it to.  In the meantime, check out Batkhi Dahn which is the side project of The Foresters’ bassist Hayden Nork.  The music is pretty out there and pretty rad and worth a listen for the not-so-faint-of-heart.

“Because You’re Gone Song” by Little Annie and Paul Wallfisch

A gorgeous song from the Noisetrade sampler from the Big Ears Festival held earlier this month in Knoxville.  I don’t know how I was not aware of Little Annie before now, but I am completely captivated now. 

“Gray Duck” by Doomtree

From another Noisetrade sampler – this one for SXSW.  Doomtree are a Hip-Hop group from Minneapolis. I dig this song, and I am always glad to bring a multitude of genres/styles into the shuffle. Don’t know much about Doomtree, but as I said, I like this song.

“Dunford’s Fancy” by The Waterboys

A Steve Wickham instrumental composition from the album Fisherman’s Blues. I like  being the blog that transitions from Little Annie’s Chamber Torch music, to Hip-Hop, to traditional sounding Celtic music.  It keeps me on my toes.   

“Fathers Be Kind” by Ivan and Alyosha

The title track of an EP, this song also appeared on All the Times We Had.   Ivan and Alyosha are from Seattle.

“The Peak” by American Scarecrows

What is it about Minneapolis?  I “discovered” American Scarecrows due to Noisetrade, and the more I hear, the more I like.

“Greenwood Girls” by Kevin Gordon

Kevin Gordon is from Louisiana but has been a Nashville resident for over 20 years. Around this parts he is legend.  If he’s not, he should be a legend everywhere.  If you aren’t up to speed on Kevin Gordon, you have a good chance to get caught up quickly.  Tangle the Blue Sky is a sampler of songs from his last three albums, and it includes a duet with the incomparable Lucinda Williams.  It is available on Noisetrade now.

“Graceland” by Paul Simon

Whether you are fan of Paul Simon (the man or the music), Graceland – the album is an undeniable masterpiece and one of the best records of the last several decades. Graceland the song is infectious and near perfect – I think.

“I Love Girls” by The Satisfactors

The thing I love about The Satisfactors is that they don’t mince words or beat around the bush. This is just no-frills straight ahead Rock and Roll, and although I like all kinds of music (even sometimes music with frills), there will always be a place in my earhole this kind of music. I can’t help it.

Made it to mid-week.  I am seriously thinking about finally producing Volume 2 of Ear to the Ground Presents… details coming soon…

Shuffle!

“East of West” by The End Men

The End Men from Brooklyn were the 2013 Ear to the Ground Band of the Year, and they remain the most mentioned artist in the history of the blog.  The just released their latest album, Terms and Conditions, and unfathomably they have managed to top themselves again.  Augmented the sax work of Matthew Elia, the band digs deeper into the rough hewn, dirty blues which first caught my attention, while also expanding their sound into exciting and interesting new directions.  I got to listen to the whole album last night, and I was blown away.  Meanwhile, this song from that album showed up first on the shuffle this morning.  Visit their website for all the fine print.

“Song for Buck Owens” by David Dondero

You don’t know how glad I am that Darrin Bradbury turned me on to the music of David Dondero.  How exactly had I not known about this before now?  How did you? Now, you know.  Go check it out.  I love this song for the one and only Buck Owens.

“Running for Cover” by Ivan and Alyosha

At the risk of ruining my reputation of being well read, when I first heard about Ivan and Alyosha, I thought they were a male (Ivan) and female (Alyosha) duo. (The name comes from The Brothers Karamazov – Ivan and Alyosha are the two youngest brothers) which I owned but never worked up the courage to read.   The band is from Seattle and they make music that is far less intimidating than a Russian novel, but pretty awesome nonetheless.

“Ride” by Cletus Kennelly and Lori Kelley

In another happy shuffle coincidence, today is Lori Kelley’s birthday, so Happy Birthday Lori!   Lori is a bright light in the Nashville songwriting scene, and I am happy to be able to hear some of the music she made before she moved here.

“Just One of the Guys” by Jenny Lewis

Man I dig this song from her 2014 album, The Voyager which was primarily produced by Ryan Adams..  If you don’t know, Jenny was in the Indie band Rilo Kiley.

“Another Day” by Artur U and the New City Limits

The album is Holiday From Eternity and it was released about a month ago.  This is the lead track from that album.  Artur U and the New City Limits are from Finland, and I dig their music a bunch.  I almost made a passing comment about the abundance of great music from Scandinavia, but then I went on Wikipedia and discovered a way too complicated discussion of what countries do and do not comprise Scandinavia. So, I will suffice it to say that their is a bunch of great music coming from the European continent.

“Lesson Number One” by Marshall Crenshaw

The final track from Crenshaw’s 1985 album Downtown.  If I ran the world, Marshall Crenshaw would be one of the best selling and most famous musicians of all time.  Of course, I would likely make a bunch of stupid decisions as well.

“Expositor” by The Vigilance Committee

Another great song from this Long Island Indie band. Exit a Hero is their new album which is scheduled to drop in three days.  Check it out!

“Chains off Me” by The Delta Routine

This is the lead track from this Milwaukee Rock band’s albym You and Your Lion which was released back in February.

We close out the shuffle with a straight ahead Rock and Roll song from this Jersey Shore supergroup which includes among its members, bassist Kenny Aaronson who has played with just about every one. Their new album is eponymously titled and is out now!

Okay… here we go… life is kicking my butt today, but music always helps…   we have a pretty fun and diverse set of songs to smooth out the rough patches…

“Mr. Bojangles” by John Hamilton

Awhile back, I watched a 1973 film called Come On Children. The premise was that the director took a group of suburban youth from Toronto to a farm in the middle of nowhere with just a camera crew.  It was like reality television except it was a film, and it was more authentic than reality t.v.  One of the kids was Alex Lifeson of the band Rush, but for me the star of the film was a kid named John Hamilton.  At the beginning of the movie, he said theme song of sorts to introduce all of the “characters”, and the later when inexplicably the kids’ families were brought in, Hamilton sang this song (written by Jerry Jeff Walker by the way). 

“History Lesson” by Minutemen

A succinct history of everything.  History Lesson Part II from Double Nickels on the Dime is about Mike Watt and D. Boon seeing their first punk show.  This one is from The Punch Line.

“Coffee” by Matt Phillips and the Philharmonic

From the album, Move. I am really digging on Matt Phillips’ brand of upbeat folk-jazz.

“All the Times We Had” by Ivan and Alyosha

The title track from the band’s 2013 album.  I’ve been enjoying spinning this album lately.

“Midnight Crisis” by Michael Sackler-Berner

Likewise, I have been thoroughly enjoying discovering the music of Michael Sackler-Berner. This song was the b-side of “She Loves Love” released in October 2014, and it was the lead track from his EP Fragile Magic which was released in March of this year.

“When Will Runs Out” by Jeremy Gluck/Robert Coyne

Seriously, though, I really do use the shuffle function, and what’s more I currently have over 700 songs in my active playlist.  So, the shuffle function must really love Memory Deluxe as much as I do.  Seriously you guys, check out this album.

“Venice” by The Lighthouse and The Whaler

I grabbed this song which was originally on the Ohio band’s 2012 album This is An Adventure from a SXSW Noisetrade sampler.  It was my first exposure to the band, and I want to check out more.

“Images and Noise” by Mothers

This was the song that first introduced me to Mothers when I got it on the Mama Coco’s sampler.  It is on their album Panamanian Times.  The song lyrically name drops Elton John, The Rolling Stones, and Pink Floyd on top of an persistent and insistent riff.

“If She’s Gone, Let Her Go” by David Schnaufer

I was fortunate enough too see the late mountain dulcimer master David Schnaufer play around Nashville in the late 80s to early 90s.  I rescued the album Dulcimer Sessions from the CD bins at Goodwill and I am happy to bring it to you. Check out his music.

“Sonic Boom” by Gear Daddies

From Billy’s Live Bait.  This song for me captures so well the restless boredom of the  suburban life of a teenager.

“Wonderful” by Taco Land

Putting things in perspective and lifting me up, comes this song from #E2TG favorite Taco Land.  Joseph “Taco” Russell wrote this song after watching his young daughter play after her first round of chemo.  The last report I got is that her cancer was in remission, and sending love and good vibes that news is still current.

“Bomb Disneyland” by The Fat White Family

Wow Shuffle! Really? Following up such a sweet and uplifting song as Wonderful with this?  Bomb Disneyland is a raucous and totally inappropriate song from the band’s album Champagne Holocaust.  You know, though, sometimes when you are down, just need a little raucous inappropriateness…

Thursday Morning Music Shuffle – Losing Luster Mix

The week is rolling on…

A few notes: 

1. Sad to report yet another incident of touring band having their gear stolen… this time it hit Two Cow Garage.  They are an awesome band.  If you want to help them out.  A GoFundMe account has been set up.

2.  I will be heading out around midday tomorrow for sunny Florida for the Safety Harbor Song Festival. Expect a bare bones shuffle tomorrow morning if everything goes as planned.  And keep an eye out for my reports from the front lines… 

3.  Found out my good friends, Young America have their new EP featured on the front page of Noisetrade in the New and Notable section. Well deserved, and if you haven’t, grab that EP and show some love.

Let’s jump into the shuffle….

“God or Man” by Ivan and Alyosha

Another cool song from All the Times we Had….

“You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” by Bob Dylan and the Band

Two things: 1. I think it is awesome that The Basement Tapes are getting such renewed attention. An incredible period of musical history…  2. Come down to Fran’s Eastside on a Wednesday night, and you might hear Darrin Bradbury cover this song… you can even ask nicely if he is in the right mood…

“I’m So Happy I Found You” by Lucinda Williams

An unfinished Hank Williams song recorded by the amazing Lucinda Williams… yep!

“One Voice/I Wanna Drive the Zamboni” by Gear Daddies

The closing track from the album Billy’s Live Bait, plus this track includes in the hidden bonus track that helped make this great band immortal, at least with hockey fans…

“If It Feels Good” by Michael Sackler-Berner

From the EP, Fragile Magic and available as Double EP on Noisetrade.  Some great modern Rock music from the Big Apple.

“Future 40’s (String of Pearls)” by Syd Straw with Michael Stipe

Syd Straw and Michael Stipe worked together when Syd was a member of Golden Palominos.  One of the many stand out tracks from Syd’s album Surprise.

“Where is My Mind?” by Pixies

Originally from the album Surfer Rosa. The song was prominently featured in the film adaptation of the Chuck Palahniuk novel Fight Club, but we aren’t allowed to talk about that… there is a rule apparently.

“Open Your Soul” by [debut]

Another song from their new album, Postcards from Berlin which is out now.  There is a great electronic rock sound here that harkens back to the heyday of bands like Depeche Mode, but the music does not sound dated or derivation but rather sounds fresh and modern.

“Feels No Pain” by Tim Carroll

Tim Carroll is one of East Nashville’s greatest assets and hardest working musicians. His long-running Friday Rock and Roll Happy Hour at The 5 Spot has become an institution.  He was featured on the cover of East Nashvillian’s Guitar Town issue.  Ear to the Ground calls him, “A consummate professional with a great clock.” (or at least we just did…  His new album, Pure as Coal, which includes this song, is out now and you should definitely check it out.
