Monday Morning Music Shuffle – Island Life Mix

Whew! It’s been awhile hasn’t it?  Been around the world and back… or at least around Georgia and back.  Got back into Nashville in time to catch The End Men and The Slaughterhouse Chorus at fooBar last night. Word to the wise, if you get the chance to see either or both of these bands live, take it.  It was so amazingly awesome to finally meet Matthew and Liv from The End Men in person. They definitely rocked the house.  And yes this means I will have to tag The End Men… again… they are currently the second most tagged term on Ear to the Ground.

But, let’s get back to what we do best… or most… or something… Pre-shuffle featured: Secret County (which I couldn’t find represented on YouTube, NY Dolls, Jill Sobule and John Doe, Chad VanGaalen, Japandroids, The Grisly Hand, Phil Norman, Little and Ashley and Tim Lee 3.

Shuffle after jump:

  • “Howlin’ Down the Dark” by Ben de la Cour from Ghost Light (2012)

Louisiana based Ben de la Cour is one of our CXCW13 “discoveries”.  We have his performance of “Tank Full of Gas” from CXCW in the YouTube Playlist down below.

  • “Just Say No (Sometimes)” by Young Hines from Give Me My Change (2012)
 

Nashville based singer-songwriter came to our attention recently, and we are digging his music.  We grabbed this song and tons more on Readymade Records Sampler 2013.  Readymade is Nashville-based indie label that have our attention.

  • “My Special One” and “Woman You’re Doing Right” by You and Me from You and Me (2013)

Good and long-time friends of Ear to the Ground, Val and James (aka You and Me) recently released some of their great music on CD.  You can order or download all of it using the Bandcamp gadget above.  We close out our shuffle with a welcomed double shot of cool, folksy, bluesy Pop.

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.
