Time marches on… btw, as is often the case, the subtitle of the post has nothing to do with the music. This time, it is just a random phrase that jumped into my brain.
This morning, we had a pre-shuffle that included the likes of:
Dog Without Warning – a bay area band we discovered at Couch by Couchwest this year. Check out their CXCW set in the Playlist at the bottom of the post.
Son House – the song we heard is included in the playlist below.
Tim Lee 3 who have been featured either pre-shuffle or shuffle every day this week – as they should be! The heartbreakingly beautiful Halo Days is in the Playlist below.
Calicocat – The more we hear from this Nashville band’s final album, the more we mourn the demise of the band, but we do wish the members well in their future musical pursuits. The Video included in the playlist below is about the only one we could find on YouTube. (Although we found lots of videos of actual calico cats).
Next, we segued into our Official Shuffle (patent pending) with a song from…. (after the pic and the jump)
- “Into the Mines” by The End Men from Play With Your Toys (2013)
That’s right suckas, it’s time for your daily The End Men mention at Ear to the Ground. Now that I’ve had the chance to meet them in person, I’m even more in love this band. Into the Mine is a disturbing fable of possible abduction far below the surface of the earth. Yeah!
- “The Highway” by The Lucky Jukebox Brigade from Pretty Well Damned (2012)
After yesterday’s post, I heard from all four bands in the shuffle either by Like, Comment, Retweet or Favorite. Which is pretty cool. Deanna from The Lucky Jukebox Brigade wrote and pointed out that their album is available for free download on Bandcamp so I’ve included that link above. Another great track from that album.
- “Kanye Spaghetti Western” by NOSE! from 12in12x12 (2013)
NOSE! are also back for a second straight day. This song is a brief, instrumental that somehow transitioned so well between The Lucky Jukebox Brigade and the next song in our shuffle that I had to go back and give it another listen. The playlist down below includes the now infamous 2012 Couch by Couchwest footage that ultimately culminated in a massive police action which sadly was not shown in the available footage. Did I mention that they are from my hometown? I don’t get to say that very often…
- “State Hospital” by Frightened Rabbit from Pedestrian Verse (2013)
Glasgow alternative-rockers released their latest album in February. State Hospital which was also the title track from the EP that preceded the release of the album.
- “4th Floor” by JENNY from Heavy (2010)
JENNY is a Canadian band which includes Spencer Kathrens who was a member of the now defunct Inner City Elegance who were one of our earliest Featured bands. See the Bandcamp widget above to grab Heavy which I’m digging so far.
Check out the YouTube playlist below and we’ll catch you later….
