Here we go…..

Music:

Pre-Shuffle:

“Girl With A Guitar” by Game Theory (co-written by Scott Miller, originally recorded by The Three O’Clock)

“Two Hearts” by Paper Route

“Participant Unwilling” by Valued Customer

“I Was Afraid” by SetinStone

“Glass Heart Hymn” by Paper Route

On to the Shuffle – after the JUMP

  • “Room for One More, Honey” by Game Theory from Tinkers to Evers to Change (1990)/Two Steps from the Middle Ages (1988)

The title comes from a line of dialogue from an episode of the Twilight Zone.  From Scott Miller’s Liner Notes to Tinker…, “I was interested in multiple vocal parts along the lines of ’66 Beach Boys. I think I also wanted to do something poppy but with a symphonic feel, kind of like Peter Schickele’s score for Silent Running.”

  • “Oh, Tonight” by Josh Abbott Band feat. Kacey Musgraves from She’s Like Texas (2010)
 

Lubbock Texas’ Josh Abbott Band team with Kacey Musgraves for this pure country song. I’m not a big fan of a lot of contemporary, mainstream country, but Kacey Musgraves has caught my attention.

  • “YOU FEEL DRAWN” by Valued Customer from Babylon Hill (2012)
Valued Customer is promising some awesome new music soon.  This is the mid-point of their album Babylon Hill.  I feel compelled to join in….

  • “You Can Have the Crown” by Sturgill Simpson from High Top Mountain (2013)

“They call me King Turd up here on Shit Mountain but if you want it you can have the crown” – from the forthcoming debut album by Nashville (by way of Kentucky) based Sturgill Simpson. Yeah, I’m kind of digging this song.

  • “Across the Universe” by The Beatles from Let It Be… Naked (1970/2003)

“Images of broken light, which
Dance before me like a million eyes,
They call me on and on across the universe.”

  • Something in Common” by Dawes from Stories Don’t End (2013)
 

California band pickup the California folk rock mantle originated and nurtured by The Eagles and Jackson Browne, and they do it in a thoroughly modern and original way.  No wonder they are one of the hottest band’s around.  Stories Don’t End has been out less than a month.  

  • “Strong” by EndAnd from Mechanic and Energetics of Stilt Running (2013)

  http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/v=2/album=3959258905/size=venti/bgcol=FFFFFF/linkcol=4285BB/

The Brooklyn punk band EndAnd who we first caught up with with  their EP The Adventures of Hi-Fi in Space have just dropped (yesterday) the first proper LP. 11 songs clocking in at just about 21 minutes.  Here’s the lowdown, in the words of Vocalist/Guitarist Daniel Fern  “This album is immensely personal and angry. Maybe even schizophrenic, I don’t know. It’s 11 songs and only 21:30 minutes. It’s themes are focused mainly around immigration and being trapped mentally and physically in a situation one does not have control over (I was an illegal immigrant for nearly half my stay in America since I arrived at the age of 12. I’m now 27). Diseases such as chronic muscle tensions, stomach disorders. and cancer. Relationships, loss and mistrust. The loss of my father and grandfather. These are the themes. I’d rather not put one under a microscope.”
  • “God and Me” by Kopecky Family Band from The Disaster (2010)

Like Dawes and EndAnd, Nashville’s own, Kopecky Family Band released a new album in April 2013. Kids Raising Kids is getting some well deserved buzz. Today, though, we look back to the band’s 2010 7 song release called The Disaster (thanks to the poor judgment of some erstwhile Goodwill donator. 

  • “Here It Is Tomorrow” by Game Theory from The Big Shot Chronicles (1986)

We promised to keep some Game Theory in the mix as we headed into this new month, and we didn’t disappoint – This final song of the 20 song Morning Playlist is the 7th by Game Theory in the mix.  It’s a nice piece of pure power pop heaven.
