SHUFFLE after the JUMP

Coastwest Unrest are from Las Vegas.  I literally just downloaded their new Noisetrade Sampler last night, and this was my first real listen.  So far, so good. Great sound and I’m dying to hear more.


  • “Bloodsucker” by Moses and the Firstborn from Mozes and the Firstborn (2013)

Mozes and the Firstborn are from Antwerp. They have a wicked sense of humor and they pretty much rock.  Isn’t that enough?


  • “Falling” by Tipi Valley from Rock ‘n Roll Lives On (2013)





Really, really digging this new music from our friend Tipi Valley from the UK. Here’s a link to the video of the title track-  http://vimeo.com/66842870

Well all sorts of bad things happened yesterday.  Sending love and prayers and thoughts to the people of Oklahoma.  

Also, remembering Ray Manzarek of The Doors who passed away yesterday. A true creative genius who shaped many generations of music.

We got some songs – as we are reminded again that Music Heals….

Today…. Pre-Shuffle-wise.

“More of the Same” by Britain. (feat. Clark Beckham) – this is the first released track from a forthcoming EP. Been digging on this track for a little while. Production by my good friend Hayden Coleman.  Representing the 615 – but this is different.

“Run Like Hell” by Drive He Said

“Sugar” by Paper Route

Wakin On a Pretty Day” by Kurt Vile – this nine plus minute song transitions us into the Shuffle of the day.


 

  •  “Wakin On a Pretty Day” by Kurt Vile from Waking On a Pretty Daze (2013)



This first release from the long anticipated follow up to 2011s Smoke Ring for My Halo is a long lovely song.

  • “Two Strangers” by Sea Wolf a b-side outtake from Old World Romance (2012)

This L.A. Indie band released an EP on Noisetrade which includes two tracks from their latest album plus three previously unreleased tracks from the same sessions.  We have another unreleased track later in the Shuffle.

  • “Saint Anthony” by Jeanette Lynne from You’ve Got Me (2013)

This beautiful song may well be my favorite from this album (which I like a whole lot).  Jeanette Lynne is from Philly, she had a great and unique voice and an amazing songwriting ability.  Please, please, please check out her album. 

  • “Sons and Daughters” by Sea Wolf an outtake from Old World Romance (2012)

Our second listen to Sea Wolf today. I think this may be my favorite of the two tracks.
