Thursday Morning Music Shuffle – No Crabs Mix

Some days you just push through….  and cool tunes help!

“I Think Hank Woulda Done it This Way” by Tim Carroll from Opening Up/If I Could

I had the opportunity to see and meet Tim Carroll at his weekly residence with Darrin Bradbury at Fran’s Eastside in East Nashville.  It was amazing to see him just play song after song for almost two hours????  It  was like he could have just kept going.  This track comes from a live album he put out a couple of years ago, and somewhere Hank Williams is grooving on this song.

“Party Poetry” by No Shoes from Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen: Section 4/Single

This ones been in the hopper for a while waiting for the shuffle monster to unleash it.  From the Section 4 compilation from Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen – the very awesome No Shoes with Party Poetry.

“Friar Fight” by Ishmael from Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen: Section 5/Lotic

Jumping ahead to the most recent Mama Coco’s Comp – we have the band called Ishmael with a nifty song called Friar Fight.

“Van Rock” by Darrin Bradbury from The Almost Great Crepes

Did you notice that Darrin Bradbury was conspicuously absent from yesterday’s shuffle.  He is on a bit of a vacation, so the shuffle gods thought they’d give him a break.  Break’s over.  When I searched for Van Rock on You Tube, I got a bunch of videos of Dave Van Ronk which is pretty cool.

“Turnstile Intervention” by aCR from ghost note manifest

An instrumental track from the new project by Liquid Casing’s aCr.  Some cool prog, alt-metal (or whatever) – it’s cool.

“Muddy Boots” by The Yugos from The Yugos

Covington, Kentucky Indie Band The Yugos reenter the shuffle at number 6. 

“Will I See You Again” by Christian Lopez from Will I See You Again

I recently grabbed this Christian Lopez release off of Noisetrade.  He is from West Virginia and seems to have carved a pretty nice space for himself in the crowded Americana landscape.  Worth checking out.

“Ain’t Nobody” by Pork Chop Willie from Love is the Devil

Any band that mixes authentic North Hill Country Blues with some Big City gusto – is okay in my book.  Love is the Devil is one of the best albums of 2014, and it is definitely worthy of your attention.

“Put Your Hand Inside the Puppet Head” by They Might Be Giants from First Album Live

I dare you to listen to this song and not be happier at least for the time it is playing. I dare you!

“Cool” by Taco Land from Home Sweet Home
