Well, my day so far has consisted of being stopped by a train which proceeded to come to a complete stop, and then (after turning around and choosing an alternate route) getting mixed up in the CMA Festival set-up.
Our Band of the Month poll – over on the left sidebar – has less than 12 hours to go, and Sci-Fi Romance had taken the lead away from South of Ramona. Keep voting and most importantly, check out all of the listed bands.
Music: I added 39 songs to the playlist last night. My sources: Popatunes’ Rock Mix Volume 7, Stereogum, plus ReverbNation, Bandcamp, a direct submission, CDs purchased at Goodwill, Freegal, Noisetrade and Amazon.com.
I shuffled those 39 songs and here was the result:
1. We go deeper into the 2003 album, The End is Now, by Los Angeles hip-hop band, L.A. Symphony. Today’s song is called, 187 on the Dancefloor.
2. Sitting on Top of the World was one of the best known songs of the Mississippi Sheiks, who were a 1930s guitar and banjo country blues band. Today’s version is off of a 2009 Mississippi Sheiks tribute album called Things About Comin’ My Way, and performed by modern Old Time String Band, Carolina Chocolate Drops.

3. Patrick Watson is a Canadian Singer-Songwriter who is also the leader of a band that shares his name. Patrick Watson, the Band, has a relatively new album called Adventures in Your Own Backyard. This morning we got a taste of the new record via a partial track download of the song, Words in the Fire.
4. And finally, we offer up a song which released just today. It’s Boyfriend which is the A-side of a single from Brooklyn dreamy pop band, Slowdance (the B-side is called Airports). Near as I can tell, it is not a cover of the new Justin Bieber song.
