clouds on the road by JWM 7/20/2013
It’s been busy here. An extended drive means more music. So, let’s get to it…
JUMP to MUSIC
“Dark Divider (Untitled)” by Stomacher (one of our first “discoveries” from the early days of Ear to the Ground and this is still a favorite. Stomacher come from the Bay area of California. This is moody, atmospheric music but surprisingly uplifting.)
“Straight Shooter” by He’s My Brother She’s My Sister (This is a cover of a Mama’s and Papa’s song)
“Wax Wings” by Beijing (Glad to have another Beijing song show up in our mix. I’m really digging this band and their recent album Night.)
“Roll on Buddy” by théan (South African born, Ottawa based musician – also performs as Veledrones. Roll on Buddy – the title track from the 2012 EP contains some awesome bits of ambient, folk, electronica. This is incredible music)
After the remainder of the théan track, the Pre-Shuffle continues on…
“Well Whiskey” by Bright Eyes (from the Lua album)
“Let it Live Free” (live at Audiotree) by He’s My Brother She’s My Sister (our second of the day from this band)
“Elysian Fields” by Heath McNease (Another from his Thrift Store Jesus album)
“The Execution of Some Sixty-Odd Drummers” by Centro-Matic (I honestly don’t know why it’s taken me so long to catch up with this great Texas band. Thanks to a tweet by Amanda Shires (Jason Isbell’s lovely bride), I can count myself a Centro-Matic fan.)
“Common Ones” by American Graveyard (Two Texas bands in a row. Digging this song)
“Mensdom” by théan (The other song from the Roll On Buddy EP)
“Spitfire” by Little Radar from Up in Arms
This Austin, Texas band jump starts our Shuffle with a track from their 2012 album Up in Arms. Check out the Noisetrade sampler above which includes a track from the forthcoming Souvenirs album.
“I Won’t Go Hollywood” by Bleu from Redhead (2003)
Another from this older album by Bleu which I picked up earlier this month on half priced Saturday at Goodwill. A great find!
“All of Nothing” by The Black Clouds from Better Days (2012)
More grungy goodness from New Jersey.
“Let Down” by Beijing from Night (2013)
Connecticut rocks! It seems like it’s been a few days since we featured a song from this brilliant album by Beijing. This is the second song from this album today. Enjoy!
“This Land is Your Land” by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings from Naturally (2005)
We close out the day with this incredible cover of the Woody Guthrie standard made even more awesome by the fabulous Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. This version of the song was featured in the motion picture Up in the Air
