Here at Ear to the Ground, you never know what to expect. At least that is my hope. I build a playlist, and I let the Shuffle function do the rest. Sometimes, I want a particular artist to come up sooner, but it all seems to work out. Anyway, musically, stylistically, and emotionally – today’s songs cut a pretty wide path through the landscape of human interactions. From the breezy indie pop of Conway and an upbeat mega hit from Pharrell Williams to some harder edged music from Tomas Doncker and The Lies. Borderline creepy sweetness from Sam Davison to Deena oh so cheerful, let down song.

Mama Coco’s is heading into the final week of their huge and important Indiegogo campaign. Jump in and help them out if you are able. To stir that particular pot, we have 4 songs from Mama Coco’s related artists in today’s shuffle. (Gingerlys, Sam Davison, and The Jean Jackets)
We are never afraid of adding a big hit song to the mix, we are secure enough in our Indie creds to do so… so get Happy….
We have another song off the brilliant new album by E2TG favorite Taco Land and we have a couple more songs from Deena’s fabulous new album Rock River.
A great song from Wussy out of Cincinnati, Ohio. They have a recent album that Tim and Susan Lee of Tim Lee 3 have been talking up. This is an older song until we can get their new music added.
