Wednesday Morning Music Shuffle – Girl in Me Mix

ICYMI – be sure to read my review of Deena’s album Rock River.   

Today’s shuffle could have been subtitled “My Ever Changing Shuffle”… just saying

“Moontana” by Darrin Bradbury from A Car Becomes a House

Expect a real deal new album from Darrin Bradbury in 2015.  In the meantime, he recently released a new collection of demos including this place-name dropping song.  The collection also includes the crowd-pleasing hit song, “Junkie Love”.

“Whatever Happened to the Girl in Me” by Ike Reilly from Am I Still the One for You?/Sparkle in the Finish

From the 2004 album by The Ike Reilly Assassination…  another great song. 

“Zombies in Disneyland” (Original Album Version) by Doctor and the Crippens from Raphanadosis

A cheerful 80s British Punk Rock number that apparently has flown under the radar of the lawyers for Walt and Co…. I hope this exposure doesn’t change that… (*read last statement with a note of sarcasm – okay?).  Anyway, this song pre-dates the current Zombie phenomenon by about a quarter of a century.

“That’s No Way” by Sidestreet Reny and Lil’ bell from Holler

Holler is a great tribute to North Mississippi Blues.  This is a cover of a Robert Wilkins song.  Wilkins was from Hernando, Mississippi and was a contemporary of Son House and Memphis Minnie in the 1920s in Memphis.

“Whiskey Man” by Heather Powell from Believe it To Life

“Now that’s some damn drinking music right there…”  A sultry number that takes me back to some smoky bar from the 1930s or 40s as recreated on the holodeck in Star Trek: The Next Generation…  okay, so I’m a nerd and my cultural references are a bit skewed… I love this song… I love what I’ve heard of her new album, too.

“Whatever Gets You By” by The Features from Old Familiar Melodies – 2008-2013/Some Kind of Salvation

A brief but catchy song…

The Complete Studio Album Collection from Leonard Cohen recently became available on Freegal… I have been filling in my collection ever since.

“My Ever Changing Moods” by The Style Council from The Singular Adventures of the Style Council/Café Bleu (aka My Ever Changing Moods)

For some reason, this song always makes me happy then sad then angry then mellow then…. okay bad joke, but I do love this song.

“City of Refuge” by Abigail Washburn from City of Refuge

The awesome title track from Abigail Washburn’s 2011 album which I picked up at the thrift store and have been featuring ever since. 

“Hesitate” by Judah and the Lion from Sweet Tennessee

A great Nashville band that has been getting a lot of attention.  I recently found out that Judah is the son of two people who were a year behind me at my high school. To my knowledge, I have no connection to the Lion.  The band will be supporting Mat Kearney on his Spring 2015 tour which includes a stop at the historic Ryman in Nashville, Tennessee.

Wednesday Morning Music Shuffle – The Trial Mix

Reasoning beyond all reason, to every purpose there is a season
Meaning over meaning, layers upon layers 
Days to weeks, looks turn to stares
Following my muse, following my bliss
Every single dream and vision ends up like this.

Welcome to my space on the internet.  Music. ‘Kay. Walking in – nice day, sunshine and not too cool. To the list:
We featured Kafka a few days ago, but he is back with another track off the fabulously diverse and wonderful Mysterious Skin set.   We got you hooked up at Amazon using the album cover link below.  Check out out the previous post about Kafka to see about getting hooked up with some free Kafka!

I continue to be blown away by how great the new Leonard Cohen album, Old Ideas, really is. Today with have Crazy to Love You.  Check out Old Ideas at Amazon below.

Gaz Coombs was the lead singer and vocalist of the British band, Supergrass. He has a debut solo album due out in May.  Today we listened to the song Subdivider .

(Pre-order Here Come the Bombs by Gaz Coombes at Amazon)
Frozen treats and sweet beats… Recurring Ear to the Ground artist Hayden Coleman asks and answers the musical question Is It Real?  If “It” refers to the the Mr. Coleman’s legit beats, then by all means, the answer is a resounding, “Yes!”

Malcolm Holcombe makes rich folk blues delivered in a joyous and lively baritone.  Malcolm Holcombe has had a storied and tumultuous life, and is currently enjoying the peace and serenity that comes with long-term sobriety.  Where I Don’t Belong off of last year’s To Drink the Rain, is a tender yet deep song of yearning and loss and being found.

Britpop rockers Supergrass collects 17 of their videos as well as the 80-minute documentary A Home Movie on this DVD from EMI and Parlophone. With hits from the band’s first four albums represented on the disc, the videos cover their early rocket-rise to stardom with such cuts as Alright and go all the way through their contagious 2002 hit Grace. The documentary contains interviews with the band and features home movies from various tours and recording sessions dating back even before the band had properly formed. Filled with the kind of off-the-wall humor and style that has surrounded their work for the first ten years, the DVD is a must for Supergrass fans and collectors alike. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
