“Close your eyes, breathe slow, and we’ll begin…”  – from “The Pan Within” written by Mike Scott and recorded by his band, The Waterboys from their album This is the Sea.

Last night I took the Blackstone Bus to Music City Roots at the Factory in Franklin.  I think the bus is one of this town’s best kept secrets.  Every Wednesday, the bus departs from The 5 Spot in East Nashville makes a stop at Soulshine Pizza in Midtown and then makes its way down I65 to Franklin. 

Reasons it is such a cool, awesome deal:  1. The ride is free.  You pay your (usually $10) Roots ticket, select the Blackstone Bus option. 2. They serve samples of different varieties of Blackstone Beer (the longest currently operating local brewery). 3 You get some free hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Monnells.  4. There is usually awesome live music on the bus and 5. You don’t have to drive.

About #4 – the scheduled music performer was under the weather, but because Nashville – it turned out that The Worry Dolls were on board.  The Worry Dolls are recent transplants from London. I had seen them at a showcase during Americana, and they graced us with some songs on the bus.  I nice treat to be sure.

This weeks Music City Roots was pretty eclectic.  Host Jim Lauderdale opened the show with a song from his new album – which I now really want to check out.  A bluegrass band from Italy played one song.  I really dug them a bunch – they are called La Terza Classe.  The Orphan Brigade played next, they are a really interesting group of experienced players with a pretty fascinating story. They completed their current album in Kentucky at what is called the Most Haunted House in America. I really liked their music which is kind of moody roots music – I guess.  LynnMarie was next with her polka band.  They won me over by opening their set with a cover of The Who’s “Squeezebox” and a song written about LynnMarie’s son who has Down’s Syndrome. The latter song really spoke to me.

Amy Black was up next – backed by some of the players who joined her when I saw her CD Release show at The Bluebird Café and supplemented by a horn section and noted Nashville bassist Hags Haggerty.  They sounded fantastic.

Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen played the final set of the night and did what they do best – bringing the authentically original take on psychedelic North Mississippi blues music. And for those who read yesterday’s post – no, the MCR stage could not contain Ted Drozdowski.  Drozdowski is a phenomenal guitar player and his band provide some amazing support. 

The closing Music City Jam featured a pretty awesome version of a song Muddy Waters recorded called “Rollin’ and Tumblin'”.  It was amazing to hear the different takes from everyone on stage.

On to the shuffle:

“The Pan Within” by The Waterboys

Celtic spirituality and soaring, “Big Music”… another track from This is the Sea – which was The Waterboys third album – released in 1985 (30 years ago). 

“Enough” by The Regrets

The first of three songs in the shuffle by bands associated with Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen.  A pretty “in your face” kind of punk song – hint: guys, you do not want to mess with this woman!  This is on the latest Mama Coco’s sampler.  I had to do some pretty heavy duty research, but I managed to find a video made by some of the members of The Regrets.

“Bullets and Arrows” by The Colored Parade

Andrew Atkins has performed in several different combination covering a pretty wide spectrum of styles and genres with one thing in common – well-written song with a hooky melodhy.

“Paper Planes” by Ilana J

 

Another from Free Falling from the Ground Up.  Illana J plays really infectious and original pop music.  She has a new single called “Angel” which is being sold to benefit research to find a cure for Angelman Syndrome.

“The Witches Song” by Longshot Nelson and the Disjoints

Off the latest Feel Bad for You mixtape – comes this seasonally appropriate song from a band who seems to have a bunch of songs which are appropriate for this time of year.  They play Scottish folk music, and this was my first listen, and I want to hear more.  

“Fuck Ben’s Party” by The Dregs

Another from the latest Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen sampler.  We’ve featured music by The Dregs before and probably will again.  The band includes bassist Sam Braverman who we first heard with his band Logan X.  

“Nevermind” by James Roquemore

Another listen to James Roquemore’s debut release, The First. You may recall that I saw James open Pat Kinsley’s album release show at the Basement. Great songs, great voice.

“Atlas” by Man Named Pearl

Another track from Quietus Make – the new album by Jesse Turits and his first under this new moniker also our third Mama Coco’s associated band in today’s shuffle. This album has rapidly become a current favorite of mine.

“Will Carry On” by Elephant Revival

We close out the day with an awesome song – another from Sands of Now – the new live CD/DVD by the Colorado experimental folk/Americana band.

Here we go… another week!

Kind of a low-key weekend.  Got to hang out with some of the folks from Nashville’s newest radio station: WXNA-LPFM on Saturday, and I picked up my t-shirt and tote bag.  Things seem to be rolling along. The studio will be in the former location of Thirty Tigers above Grimey’s and The Basement. 

Last night, I went to the Basement East where East Nashville Songwriters Club made their debut in the new location with sets by Allen Thompson, Jay Rutherford (of Los Colognes) and Elise Davis.  Cool night of music!

Speaking of cool… the temperatures were in the 30s this morning.  Which makes the first song of the shuffle appropriate even is weather isn’t exactly what the song is about.

“Cold Front” by Webb Wilder

Another toe-tapping rocker from Webb’s album Hybrid Vigor.

“The Locked Room” by Dan Martin

The strange and often random hand of fate… my friend Mary met Dan Martin at a David Olney show at The 5 Spot, and she told him that he should give me a CD, and he did.  I now count myself as a big fan of Dan Martin from Oklahoma.

“When the World’s Against Me” by The Colored Parade

A nice catchy number from …And the Walls of the City Will Shake…  by Andrew Adkins’ old band, The Colored Parade.  Andrew had a song featured in the trailer for the new documentary about Tower Records.

“Losing Sleep Tonight” by John Moreland

Another great song from one of the best albums of this year, High on Tulsa Heat by one of the best songwriters of our time.

“Pulling Your Sword Out of the Devil’s Back” by Brock Zeman

An unconventional song about songwriting that manages to be awesome without any of that fancy song stuff like Choruses and Bridges and ever a consistent melody.  Looking forward to Brock Zeman’s return to Nashville in early November. As I understand it, there will be a couple of chances to catch him while he is in town.  I will have details soon. This is the title track from his latest album.

“The Rain Song” by The Shakers

A mind-blowingly good Led Zep cover from Nashville’s groundbreaking Southern Gothic Psych-Folk band, The Shakers.  From their album, Songs From Beneath the Lake.

“What’s My Scene” by Hoodoo Gurus  

And we close out this Monday shuffle with a song that decades later still gets me pumped up every time I hear it.  From Blow Your Cool! window.amznpubstudioTag = “eartothegro00-20”;

Still reeling from Saturday night’s Raging Fire reunion at Exit/In.  So many memories stirred, the band sounded so good, and the songs were still as awesome as always.  My (perhaps) unique perspective.  I was a huge fan of the Nashville music scene in the mid to late 1980s, but just a fan and mostly at a distance.  I only made it to Nashville on the rare occasion I could round up people to go with me. I was lucky enough to see some of the great bands of  that era, but I didn’t know anybody.

That being said, the music was important to me, and WRVU and The Metro and later Fireplace Whiskey Journal were my lifelines.  So, it was a pretty cool experience to be at this show and to actually know some of the people involved.  And speaking of WRVU, when Adam Dread fist bumped me during the Raging Fire set… my eighteen/nineteen year old self suddenly felt very cool.

And to be redundant, Raging Fire absolutely killed it. Melora Zaner is still one of the best and sexiest rock vocalist around, Mark Medley kept the whole thing in perfect time, bassists John Reed, Les Shields (and the other one I didn’t know) were awesome.  The very large shoes of the late Michael Godsey were filled by not one but two of the scenes very best – Joe Blanton (The Enemy, Royal Court of China, The Bluefields) and Jeff Cease (Rumble Circus, Black Crowes). They were perfect for the role, having known Michael and having been present…

We jump into a Monday Morning shuffle….

“Photo Booth” by Tim Lee 3

Fresh on the news that Tim Lee 3 spinoff band, BARK, will be playing Nashville this month.  We have TL3 with a song from their latest album, 33 1/3.  Such a great band that I’ve gotten to know over the last few years, and they have some deep, deep roots in the music of my youth.

“Casino Road” by Kevin Gordon

Just before Kevin Gordon released his latest album Long Gone Time, he released a compilation EP via Noisetrade and serves as a good catching up point if you are just now discovering the talented Mr. Gordon.  This song goes back to O Come Look at the Burning which was released just over a decade ago.

“Cut Me Some Slack” by Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear

From the film/soundtrack Sound City… much was (rightfully) made of  the ex-Beatle leading the remaining members of Nirvana in this song which truly rocks.  The interesting side story for me… I recently watched the movie What We Do is Secret, which was a fictionalized telling of the history of the L.A. punk band The Germs. So what makes the story fascinating for me… when The Germs started, they decided to form a band, bought instruments, booked and played their first show (which was a ridiculous, chaotic mess), and only then learned to play the instruments. Pat Smear formed the band along with the late Darby Crash, and some thirty plus years later, he finds himself playing with Sir Paul himself.  I don’t know… that seems kind of remarkable to me.

“The Rise of the Black Messiah” by Indigo Girls

Indigo Girls released their 14th Studio album this past summer. The album is called One Lost Day, and the Rise of the Black Messiah is on that album.

“My Lord and I” by Elder Anderson Johnson

From the Music Maker Relief Foundation album. Elder Anderson Johnson was a street performer, an outsider artist, and he founded a church in Newport News, Virginia. He passed away in 1998.

“Drops of Ink” by Drew Kohl

Another track from Drew Kohl’s EP, Sweetheart, which I reviewed earlier this year.  “Drops of Ink” is a story of lost love. 

“Hysterically Speaking” by The Colored Parade

Another track from The Colored Parade’s album, And the Walls of the City Will Shake.  A great, catchy song… I look forward to continuing to follow Andrew Adkins and see where his music takes him.  

“I Feel Like My Time Ain’t Long” by Essie Mae Brooks

We close out the Monday shuffle with another Music Maker Relief Foundation artist. Essie Mae Brooks was born in Georgia in 1930 and began making music at a very early age. I kind of think maybe we featured this song before, but who really cares – it is a great song.

Tonight on a very special episode of Music City Roots… Really looking forward to tonight’s benefit show for Tommy Womack.  A rare Nashville area appearance of Jason and the Scorchers, Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks, Will Kimbrough, Dan Baird and more guests… If you can’t be there, you can watch the livestream.

After that it is Aaron Lee  Tasjan, Nellie Clay, John Calvin Abney, and Levi Parham at The 5 Spot- where conveniently, the Roots bus will drop me off.

“Me Oh My” by The Honeycutters

 

The title track of the latest album from the Asheville, North Carolina band who have been getting some great and well deserved press.  I dig this song.

 

“Wait a Minute” by David Schnaufer

A brief instrumental interlude from the late, great David Schnaufer.  Schnaufer was one of those rare musicians who having mastered his instrument (in his case the Mountain Dulcimer) found the ability to expand the sonic possibilities of that instrument. 

“I Got What I Wanted” by Randy Weeks

The first of three songs in the shuffle today from the brand new Ted Hawkins tribute album – Cold and Bitter Tears. Hawkins was a long time and well known street performer in Venice Beach. During his storied life, he mostly managed to elude mainstream or financial success, while earning respect from his fellow musicians and songwriters.  During the last year of his life, he did find some degree of financial success, and from what I have gathered, he lived it up.  Randy Weeks is a longtime Austin musician who was once a member of the Lonesome Strangers.  By the way, for all three of the Hawkins’ songs in the shuffle – the video playlist contains a song by the artist AND the original Ted Hawkins version of the listed song.

“Strange Conversation” by Jon Dee Graham

The shuffle brings up another song from the Cold and Bitter Tears album and another from a longtime Austin resident – the legendary Jon Dee Graham whose credits include a who’s who of the music I have loved for the last 30 something years. He was a member of both The Skunks and True Believers.  Coincidently, he is playing tonight at the Continental Club in Austin just before embarking on an extended tour that will take him all up and down the East Coast. 

“Old Love Letter” by Reckless Johnny Wales

Speaking of legends… Reckless Johnny Wales is a legend in and of himself – with a storied history which we have previous recounted. His latest album American Heart is one of my favorites of 2015.

“My Last Goodbye” by Ramsay Midwood

And a third track from Cold and Bitter tears.  This one is performed by yet another Texas musician.  By the way, Randy Weeks is listed a member of Ramsay Midwood’s band. I got to hear Midwood perform this song at the Cold and Bitter Tears launch party during Americana week.

“Throw Down Your Guns” by The Colored Parade

Another great song from Andrew Adkins – this time from his band The Colored Parade – off their album …And The Walls of the City Will Shake.  The Colored Parade called it quits back in August, but expect much more music from Adkins.

“Ghost Soul Traffic” by The Jackals

We have another great track from People – the latest album by Scottish band, The Jackals.

“Flagship” by Jason Isbell

And we close out today’s shuffle with a track from Jason Isbell off his most recent album Something More Than Free.

Welcome to Saturday, and a ultra rare Saturday shuffle – live blogging experiment.  Enjoy…

3:09p.m.   Hit Shuffle

“Vincent Black Lightning” (Richard Thompson cover) by Fendrick and Peck

My friends, Fendrick and Peck have a brand knew album called Lucky Penny.  This is the last song and only cover on the album. One of my all-time favorite songs, and I really dig this cover.

“Too Much Out of Line” by The Colored Parade

Next up, another friend – Andrew Adkins with his band, The Colored Parade with a song from their album …And the Walls of the City Will Shake

“Medicine Bow” by The Waterboys

This is the Sea is 30 years old this year.  I hope I still sound so good when I get to be 30…..  

“Gingerbread Boy” by Miles Davis

From the Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4… a Jimmy Heath composition (I think).  Nothing wrong with Miles Davis on a lazy Saturday afternoon at the end of Summer.  Or any other time for that matter…

“Eastwood Outlaw” by Crazy Aces

Crazy Aces are an instrumental rock band from Nashville.  I experienced them live for the first time last night, and I had to have this albun.  Awesome stuff!

“Champions of Red Wine” by The New Pornographers

A track from the latest album by The New Pornographers, Brill Bruisers, which was released about a year ago… a pretty cool song.  I like it.  I could listen to Neko Case sing all day long.

“Song About My Friends” by Atticus Floyd

From We’ll All Come Down… a cute little songs about friends who are monsters who died.

It is now 3:44p.m.  and we move on…

“Royal Wedding” by Kronos Quartet

From a Sampler of the Big Ears Music Festival which held in Knoxville, Tennessee earlier in the year.  Kronos Quartet class up the shuffle in the coolest way possible…

“Lost in a Crowd” by Fantastic Negrito

My first time hearing this song and my first exposure to the artist. Man, I dig this. I want to hear more! The album is listed as “Studio Paradiso 4/20/2015” on my device.  Will find out more right away.

“Only Love Can Break Your Heart” by Charlie Whitten

A nice Neil Young cover… This comes from a Charlie Whitten Sampler via Noisetrade.

And we will go out with this one:

“21 Years” by James Tomberlin

Our first listen to the new record from James Tomberlin.  One of my favorite writers. He recently left Nashville to pursue a law degree in Virginia, but before he left he recorded Still Life with Orange. Produced by Josh Morris and featuring Jon Latham, Cameron Carrus, and John Gentile.  I love this song!

4:05p.m.  Hope you enjoyed!

Welcome to the week… it looks like this is going to be a short week for me, so expect some inconsistent Morning Shuffles… check back periodically and I know I will be back as soon as possible.

First, I had a great time at The Tomato Art Fest in East Nashville on Saturday.  Saw some great music and got to hang out with a bunch of great friends.  Sorry to everyone I missed.

In the shuffle we have some cool tunes… so let us not delay…

“Strike You Down” by Indigenous Engines

We start out this week with a song from one of my favorite Nashville songwriters, Andrew Adkins with a track off of Witches – one of two EPs out from his new project called Indigenous Engines. I dig it.

“Susan Scorned” by Bill Lloyd

Bill Lloyd’s first solo album (I think) Feeling the Elephant remains one of my favorite albums of all time. I had it on vinyl and then picked up the CD when it was reissued early in the 90s.  It is an amazing slice of pure pop heaven.  Susan Scorned as always been among my favorite tracks on the album – though to be honest, I can’t think of  track from the album that is not a favorite.  “When  it rains, it comes in torrents…” 

“Broken Face” by Pixies

Just because every Monday needs some Pixies.  Off of the classic Surfer Rosa album.

“Odyssey” by Rival Consoles

Rival Consoles is from London and plays Electronic music. This track is the title number from an EP.  The song came to me via a Noisetrade Sampler from the Big Ears Music Festival which was held in Knoxville, Tennessee back in the early spring/late winter.

“Hey Mr. Grey” by Bob Mould

From his 2014 album Beauty and Ruin… Bob Mould shows that it is possible to keep rocking harder and harder no matter how many years go by.  My Mount Rushmore of American Rock gods would have Mr. Mould right in the middle…. who else?

“Ordinary Weekend” by John Wesley Harding

From Why the Fight? The artist formerly known as John Wesley Harding with one of my favorite songs of his.  “Sink or Swim”.

“One Tear at a Time” by The Sky Kings

Having two appearances by Bill Lloyd in the shuffle is never a bad thing.  This one is from the Supergroup that he was a part of.  This album was made in (and eventually named) 1992 but just saw the light of day at the end of 2014.  It was not only worth the wait, but like all great music, it was timeless and wonderful.  

“Please, Be Kind” by The Colored Parade

Completing our completely random frame of today’s shuffle, we close out the shuffle where we began with an track from an Andrew Adkin’s album.  This one is from his band, The Colored Parade – the album is called, And the Walls of the City Will Shake.  A pretty cool way to end the first and (maybe) the last shuffle of the week.

I find myself rushed again… so, let’s get to this:

1.  Jonquil Child by Tiffany Huggins Grant which we have been featuring songs off of for a few weeks has been released.  Check it out HERE. I recommend it highly.

2. There is a great FREE SHOW in downtown Nashville today on 5th between Demonbreun and Korean Veterans.  It is the CD Release show for the companion album to the Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  Lots of cool folks including some of the players from the original classic recordings.  Did I mention it is free?  Details: HERE. Gates at 5:00, Music starts at 6:00

3.  Later on tonight, Two Cow Garage are playing at the Hi Watt with Heathen Sons and Benchmarks.  Benchmarks is the new moniker for Todd Farrell and the Dirty Birds.  Should be a great show.

Shuffle: (It’s a good one)….

“Tangled in Your Web” by Richard Barone

From the classic Cool Blue Halo.  One of the best live albums ever.

“Flower Flower” by The Vespers

The Vespers were the first band to play the second day of the Safety Harbor Songfest earlier this year.  It was a relatively early set and people were arriving throughout, but they still managed to capture and hold the attention of everybody present.  It was a great set, and it solidified by appreciation of this Nashville band. This is a track from their 2012 album, The Fourth Wall.

“A Whole Within” by The Colored Parade

Another great Nashville band, The Colored Parade are a favorite of mind.  From the album, And the Walls of the City Will Shake…

“Triangle” by Bad Bad Not Good

BadBadNotGood are an innovative Jazz group from Toronto.  This is from one of those World Café Sessions that I have been featuring.  My first listen… I want to hear more…

“Somebody Loves You” by Austin Lucas

One of the highlights of last week for me was Austin Lucas’ triumphant return to Nashville at The 5 Spot.  He stood and delivered a breath-taking set that ended with the crowded gathered around the stage for an unplugged number.  This track is the title track from Lucas’ 2009 album, and it shows off the emotionally powerful nature of his songwriting.

“Olah” by Matt Phillips and the Philharmonic

Olah is a heartbreaking song about resisting a forbidden love, and it delivered in Matt Phillips signature peppy upbeat style… the juxtaposition might seem strange, but Phillips makes it work here.

“One on One” by Miles Davis

From Miles Davis’ 1972 album On the Corner… the jazz master experiments with rhythm and makes some truly innovative music.  It was widely panned at the time of its release, but it has found critical favor in later years and proven to be a highly influential album.  The album features Dave Liebman who I had the good fortune of seeing live earlier this year.  

“Bangkok” by Alex Chilton

A 1978 single from the the High Priest of alternative music.  If I’m not mistaken (quick research so I could be) Chris Stamey (Dbs) and Richard Lloyd (Television) were part of Chilton’s band at the time of this single.

“Smilin’ Jim is Down Again” by Black Vincent

We close the day, with another awesome song from the album Teardrop Deluxe by the Michigan band lead by Coley Kennedy (The Buddies, Welcome to Ashley). The album was recorded in Nashville by one of the cities hottest production teams.
