Well May is winding down and I’m frantically trying to clear out my playlist so I can start pretty fresh for June 1. Of course, as always, I’m adding faster than I can clear out… but it keeps me going…



“Hill County Girl” by Will Kimbrough (achingly and stunningly beautiful song from Kimbrough’s 2007 EP)

“Change (JT Daly Remix)” by Churchill (from a Noisetrade Remix Collection)

“Love and War (Tangled)” by New Victorians (Two lovers during WWII London, a string section, and a band)

“Tracks” by Trapper Schoepp and the Shades (Milwaukee Rock!)

“Heart” by Mystery Twins (1/2 of Nashville band, The Clutters, from my Twitter to you in a matter of hours – you’re welcome!)

“Change (Acoustic)” by Churchill (a stripped down version of the second song on today’s pre-shuffle – digging it – They are from Denver)

“Bo Diddley” by Bo Diddley (Cause nobody does it better)

“Anymore” by Jonathan Warren and the Billy Goats (Progressive PsychoBilly Folk Grass from Boise)

  • “Cruel Movements” by JoDee Purkeypile from Messenger (2013)

Austin, Texas singer/songwriter from his most recent release. ““Cruel Movements” was composed on piano in the aftermath of a “strange” night out with old friends.”

  • “The Way We Move – Solo Acoustic” by Langhorne Slim from This is the Way We Move (Noisetrade sampler – original version on The Way We Move (2012)

A glorious stripped down version of one of my favorite songs of the past couple of years.

  • “Pass on My Love” by Magnolia Sons from Free (2011)

Another great Nashville band – doing the retro-soul thing.  This one had me dancing up the hill.

  • “Tangled Up in Blue” by Bob Dylan from Blood on the Tracks (1975)

A great way to end the morning mix… one of my absolute, all-time favorite songs.

A cold and misty rain here in Music City USA.  Reminder: Voting is heating up in our 2nd Annual Band of the Year poll. Right now, the Brooklyn band The Disappointment have jumped out into the lead. Sci-Romance, Skeletons in the Piano, The End Me, and Black Jake and the Carnies round out the top so far, but it’s early and anything can happen.

Shuffle after the Jump:

One of R.E.M.’s best records, Automatic for the People, turned 20 this year.  Today we have Find the River which was the last single released from the album.

Vajra is a progressive rock band with Eastern influences based in  New York City. The band is lead by exotic and talented vocalist/keyboard player Annemaria Pinna and backed by an experienced group of Alt-Rock veterans. The band’s debut record is called Pleroma and was released on the Summer Solstice. Now, just in time for the Winter Solstice, we bring you the lead track from the record called Inside the Flame
A beautiful seasonal favorite from Fleet Foxes self-titled Debut album called White Winter Hymnal.  
We close out today’s shuffle with the title track from Langhorne Slim and The Law’s latest album The Way We Move. If you are not up to speed on the fabulous Langhorne Slim – the time has come to rectify that situation.  Start here:
