Lots of almost news to almost report… Expect to have more information about my and Sue Havlish’s WXNA show – Double Shot with Joe and Sue very soon.  If you have not done so, now would be a good time to follow our show on Facebook.

Also, expect more details about the forthcoming E2TG Five Year Anniversary Party (5/18 at The 5 Spot).  Just trying to lock down the final details.

Maybe, probably less soon, expect some information about the future of E2TG (it’s so bright, I have to wear shades – how is that for a relatively obscure – nearly 30 year old reference).

In the meantime, it is Tuesday when we take a look at what is “Trending” on E2TG….

“Pinprick Eyes” by Ask for Joy

Ask for Joy is a Dream Pop/Shoegaze project of Aaron Rossetto of Austin, Texas. This song comes from the recently released New Private Window EP filled with forbidden pleasures. 

“Receiver” by Waco Brothers

The Waco Brothers new album Going Down in History is receiving widespread acclaim. Waco Brothers are fronted by Jon Langford from the legendary band, The Mekons. This is the first single from that album. If you want, you can check out this and some other Waco Brothers’ music on Noisetrade before you buy Going Down in History.  Really sorry I missed this band when they played Nashville late last year, but I am glad I saw Langford at The 5 Spot more recently.  Hope Waco Brothers come back here soon.

“Listening to Antique Pony Too Much” by Youngstrr Joey

As you can probably tell – if you stick around her long enough – I have a soft spot for the more experimental side of things sometimes. Youngstrr Joey from Glascow fits that bill pretty nicely.  It is experimental without being outrageously off-putting (at least for me).  Antique Pony is a Scottish band.  (I had to look that up, and now I have to check them out).

“The Fall” by The Hidden Agendas

Williamsport, PA is the hometown of Little League baseball, and the home base of The Hidden Agendas.  Glad to have them back in the shuffle.  When I’m not getting all experimental and weird, sometimes I just like some pretty straight ahead rock and roll – especially when it is done well. The band is hard at work on their new album.  Can’t wait to hear it.

“Seed” by Jonas Howden Sjøvaag’s Navyelectre

It seems like we have been featuring songs from Large Ensemble for a while, and we still have a couple more after this one.  I really dig this wonderful, original music from Norway.  Jonas Sjøvaag is a composer who has quite a bit of music out there. 

“Melissa” by Amelia White

Next up, a very beautiful love song from the  album Home Sweet Hotel, which is among my favorites of 2016 so far. 

“This Life… With You” by Hayes Carll and Supersuckers

Long running country/punk/rock band Supersuckers team with Texas singer-songwriter on this track from the Supersuckers’ most recent album, Holdin’ the Bag.  Yeah!  And yes, I freaking missed this at The Basement East Sunday… *shakes my head*

“Flood of Red” by Drew Worthley

Drew Worthley is a singer-songwriter the UK.  His new album is called Crucible.  This is a track from that album.  I really like this.

“Double Trouble” by Leapfrogtown

We have another track from Dreaming in Public the current album by this London based band.

Well, back to reality and back to our daily shuffle.  More recaps of AMA 2015 will be forthcoming. 

Suffice it to say, I had the time of my life – hearing tons of great music, seeing and meeting people, and sharing some once in a lifetime moments.

It is Monday and that means, I am back to work and we have a nifty shuffle to kick off the post-AMA hangover week…

“Yuma” by Justin Townes Earle

We start of this week with the devastating title track from JTE’s debut EP (2007).

“Missing” by Manilow

I didn’t realize we still have some Manilow in the shuffle.  This is some badass UK punk rock.

“Fighter” by Tiffany Huggins Grant

Another great song from Tiffany’s Jonquil Child album – one of my favorites of the year.

“Don’t Bang the Drum” by The Waterboys

A swelling, expansive track from This is the Sea.

“Railroad Bill” by Etta Baker

Some Piedmont Blues via The Music Maker Relief Foundation.  If I am not mistaken, Taj Mahal plays on this song.

“I’m Poor” by Supersuckers

My Americana experience this year began with a fund raiser for Supersucker Eddie Spaghetti at The Basement East – last Tuesday.  Today, we have a track from a compilation called Their Sympathetic Majesty’s Request. 

“When Tomorrow Never Comes” by Pony Boy

We have another track from Pony Boy’s brand new record, Blue Gold.

“Slow Motion” (Sylvan Esso Remix) by PHOX

We close out the day with a remix of a song from the Self-Titled album by the indie band based out of Wisconsin.
