Anyway to close out a great year of Shuffles, we have another shuffle with some songs and stuff…

Friday Morning Music Shuffle – Hurrah Mix

A cool selection of songs and not much time… let’s go…

BONUS TRACKS:   “Balcony” by Jordan Klassen    “Steal a Ride” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club   “Old Friends” by The Coal Men    “December” by prattle on, rick.     “Into the River” by The Quick and The Dead     “West Germany” by Minutemen    “Sam Kelley” by Darrin Bradbury   “Something Changed” by Andrew Ferris   “John Doe”  by ??? (another of those “Unknown Artist” tags that I couldn’t identify in my quick internet search. Clue 1: The song does not appear to be about the member of X.  Clue 2: It’s a pretty nifty song  Side Note: There are a lot of songs called “John Doe”)    “Easy” by Son Lux

Transition Track (note: The Bonus tracks were listened to on my drive home last night.  The forthcoming shuffle songs were from my drive to work this morning.  I listened to the first half of this song on my way home and the second half on my work): “Baltimore Boats” by Humming House (from Humming House.)

Shuffle proper…

“I Know You’ll Be Mine” by Mark Robinson (from Quit Your Job – Play Guitar.  Nashville may be – as I read recently – over-hyped when it comes to it’s “hotness” has a music town, but we are very fortunate to have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to talented musicians from all genres of music.  Case in point – Mark Robinson, blues man extraordinaire)

“Permanent/Imperanent 1213” by Peck (from Peck Sounds (album in process). Peck is Chris Peck who #E2TG careful readers recognize as part of the featured artist alum – The Disappointment.  He is releasing his new album one song at a time.  It’s called Peck Sound… oh, I see what he did there…)

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” by Annie Sellick (from Let’s Make a Christmas Memory.)

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – FIGJAM Mix

H/T to Darby Cockroach for the subtitle to today’s post.

Thanks to this blog and the magic of the Internet and Social Media and Purple Faeries, I have had the good fortune to virtually or actually meet a number of amazingly talented people from all around the world.

Today’s Mix includes some great new music from some of those amazingly talented people….

To the Shuffle:



“Better Than”  by The Coal Men from Escalator (I actually didn’t meet Dave Coleman front man for The Coal Men on-line, but it was through some on-line connections that I was at the Five Spot on September 19th to see his solo set and get turned on to his band’s music. Escalator has it’s official CD release party this Wednesday night in East Nashville.  I am really digging this CD, and I urge you to check it out.)

“Reberto” by Shake Jack from Reberto (Shake Jack are  from Argentina. They make some awesome neuvo-60s rock sounds.  Reberto is the band’s latest EP. It’s in Spanish, but cool music is a universal language. )

“Vices” by The Quick and the Dead from Easy Getting By  (I met Joey Mansman when he was in a band called Cosmonauts. I had the good fortune to interview them back when I actually had time for such thing…. someday again… He’s now part of a hard rocking, Americanaish band called The Quick and the Dead. They just released their debut record. “Vices” is one of my favorite songs so far.)

“Born To” by Jesca Hoop from The House That Jack Built (Okay – I don’t know Jesca Hoop. However, if she wants to “Friend” me on Facebook or whatever….  This song is from her 2012 album The House That Jack Built.)

“Your Dreams Will Always Follow” by prattle on, rick from Some Quiet Majesty (prattle on, rick is a brilliant Nashville singer/songwriter.  I think I was introduced to his music either through Twitter follow or through Noisetrade or Brite Revolution or else a little bird told me to check him out.  Either way, I’m glad I discovered this music, and this song is just sooooo gorgeous.  Thank you, little bird!)

 Propane, Storm Clouds, and Custom Hitches by JWM 7/10/2013

 I have a ton of ground to cover and as per usual not as much time I was would like… so forsaking the pleasantries….

Today, we begin with three previews of upcoming releases.  

Let’s begin with Grow the long awaited solo effort by Spencer Livingston of The Alternates (who were one of our early Bands of the Week about two years ago).  Grow is due out next Tuesday July 16, 2013.  The album features guests like Butch Norton (Lucinda Williams, Eels) and Kenneth Pattengale (Milk Carton Kids).  One of the things that first caught my ear with The Alternates was Livingston’s super rich vocals, and he is in full voice on what I’ve had the chance to hear so far from the new record. American Songwriter premiered the first video from the album “Have a Little Faith”.   Spencer is heading East for a run of shows before returning to California for a couple of shows at the beginning of August.  You can grab all his tour dates here.

Easy Getting By is the Debut EP from Glen Falls, NY band The Quick and The Dead.  It will be released on July 26.  The Quick and The Dead features our old friend Joey Mansman (Today is his birthday by the way  – so have a good one Joey) who we met through his other band Cosmonauts (who are supposed to be wrapping up their epic final album soon – from what I read). You may remember our interview and video premier of the Cosmonauts song Cold Harbor.  The Quick and The Dead offers up a more roots/Americana vibe, and based on what I’ve heard so far, it is pretty awesome.  I can’t wait to hear the whole EP.  The first taste from Easy Getting By is called “Into the River”

Finally, we are very happy to present the first taste of Kalpa which is the new EP by Valued Customer.  The band is excited about this new music, and finally, we get our first hint at what all the excitement is about. We have to wait until July 17 for the full course of Kalpa, but the band have graced us with “Second Moon” as a Free Download over at Bandcamp (Name Your Own Price). The track is six minutes and 13 seconds of mind-blowing music and words. Valued Customer, as I have mentioned, are from Toronto. They are often weird, sometimes silly, but above all they are amazingly talented artists, and I mean that sincerely.  Here’s a sample of lyric:

ugggy gotta alotta luv in his heartbeat
but i seen it all before, Koyaanisqatsi 
I mean, hell, just the fact that they rhymed heartbeat and Koyaanisqatsi would be enough to sell me, but this isn’t even the best moment. Ah, heck just judge for yourself..

We still have a shuffle to do, and not a lot of time.  JUMP then SHUFFLE

Pre-Shuffle (in brief):

“American Weekend” and “Sleeping Alone” from The Great American Novel
“Black Star” (live) from Radiohead
“Sailor Song” from The Blind Owl Band (new album is out now!)
“Before Your Father Hears Us” and “Romeo” from The Family Crest
“One of These Days” from CeDell Davis
“Swing Low” from Bobby McFerrin with Esperanza Spalding
and
“The Recluse” from Amigo The Devil

Shuffle:

“Fray” by The Black Clouds from Better Days (2013)



“For a Memory Erased” by Liquid Casing from A Separate Divide (2013)
