Monday Morning Music Shuffle – Waiting For My Man Mix

Time, Time, Time, see what’s become of me…

Last week, I managed to move the overall current stuff playlist to down below 400. I’m planning to add more tunes tonight, so let’s make another dent today.


“You’re Cordially Invited to My Backyard Passout Fest” by Darrin Bradbury     “After the Fight” by Jars of Clay    “Are You Listening” by Kopecky Family Band (from their excellent 2013album, Kids Raising Kids)    “She Still Loves Me” by SOJA (featuring Collie Buddz)      “Victory” by Junior Murvin  (who sadly past away last week. He co-wrote the song “Police and Theives” which was covered by The Clash on their self-titled album)    “Gypsy Django” by Humming House    “Bars” by The Westies    “‘A’ Bomb in Waldour Street” by the Jam    “I Like Beer” by Tom T. Hall  

TRANSITIONALLY SPEAKING (the track to move us from the Extra to the main shuffle):

“Headed To The Promised Land” by James Crawford (from James Crawford.  A definite stand-out track from one of my favorite albums of the year.)


“I’m Waiting for My Man” (live) by Lou Reed (from 1974-05-14 Stockholm. “First thing you learn is you always gotta wait.”)

“Age of Immature Mistakes” by Jars of Clay (from Noisetrade Eastside Manor Session. originally released on Inland. Haven’t we all been that age? Wait when does that age end?)

“Tower Park” by Humming House (from Humming House. “Western swing and reception drinks
A two-step smile and a foxtrot wink  As the bandstand plays, the wedding march.” A gem from the self-titled debut by this fast-rising Nashville band.)

“Swamp Song” by Nava Hotel (from Never Loved You. Oh yeah! Some nasty delta blues riffs delivered by this hard rocking band from Nashville.)

BLOGGERS NOTE:  Just noticed… from this Nashville-based music blogger who rarely blogged about bands from Nashville (or semi-rarely at most)… 10 of today’s 14 songs are by Nashville based artists or at least that have a strong connection to Nashville. Just saying…

 Great to hear Allison – first thing this morning on the radio – thanks Mary Brace and Lightning 100 for that. Here we go… 

Vulture Kult have recently released their second album which is called, Don’t Let Rock n’ Roll Ruin Your Life. Vultures from Above is a real treat, a neo-classical sounding hard rock track with strong vocals and real, live screaming guitars.  Vulture Kult, as I mentioned the last time I wrote about them, have a Psychedelic groove to their music that I like a whole lot.

Stream the album here, purchase it here.

Buddy Miller is a significant force in the Americana movement.  A singer, songwriter, producer and collaborator.  Here we have a track from his 1995 HighTone Records debut, Love and Other Lies.  That’s How I Got to Memphis is a cover of a song Tom T. Hall wrote for Bobby Bare, Sr.

Earlier this year, Rodney Crowell put out an album called KIN: Songs by Mary Karr and Rodney Crowell. Mary Karr is a poet, essayist and memoirist. Karr wrote the lyrics for the songs on the album and Crowell put the lyrics to music.  An All-Star that includes Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Vince Gill and Lucinda Williams, performs the songs.  I’m a Mess is done by Crowell himself. 
Seattle-based Hip-Hop duo, THEESatisfaction have put out an EP length mixtape called THEESatisfaction Loves Anita Baker.  Today, we have the track, Black Fact.  Check it out:
Here’s another THEESatisfaction track
Here’s Anita Baker herself….
