Off we go getting good and ground up in the week…. and we added 17 songs (some new, some old – all new to our playlist) – and it’s a fine collection of music…
In case you haven’t heard the Legendary Leonard Cohen has a brand new album called Old Ideas by all accounts it is an amazing piece of work. We have the lead track from the album today, Going Home would sound good along side any of Mr. Cohen’s classic tracks.
Whenever I load in a new song that blows me away, and I cannot remember where I obtained it, a good bet is our friend Popa’s Tunes. Case in point, today’s song from Black Jake and the Carnies. It’s from their album Sundry Mayhem and it’s an amazing rave-up/hoe-down at once dark and fun. I grabbed a download from the Popakazooza 2012 compilation.
Next, we have a live track from reigning Band of the Week, The Gypsy West. The song Time was recorded live at the Electric Cathedral. And, this gives up a chance to post a more recent video than the ones we posted with the BOTW post. Thanks to the band for the heads up to these videos. We’ll have more later, I am sure. Here is a January 2012 performance by the band of today’s song, Time recorded at the Bowery Electric.

Finally, we have another live performance. This one is by the Civil Wars doing a track from the hit Barton Hollow album, My Father’s Father was recorded live at Eddie’s Attic and was only their second performance together ever.
