WOW Wednesday Music Shuffle - Jackals and Devils Mix

The idea behind WOW Wednesday is to open up the entire music collection housed on my phone and see what comes up on random shuffle.  As you probably know on most days, I shuffle a "current" playlist of around 200-300 songs - heavily loaded with new or recent music - supplemented with whatever has crossed my mind or my ear of late.

Today's WOW shuffle offers a pretty darn random sampling of some the music I've gathered....

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle - Chill Out Mix

Today's shuffle takes us from the Mississippi Delta via one of Nashville's hottest bands, up to New York with a singer-songwriter who's lead instrument is the bass.  To the North Mississippi Hill Country with a legendary blues player, to New York City where a cover of a Howlin' Wolf classic gets a dub remix, and ends up with some Connecticut teens taking on a lo-fi classic from the Pacific Northwest.  Not a bad ride for a Tuesday...

Full-Ride Friday Music Shuffle - Covered in Dust Mix

I didn't sleep particularly well last night, and so I knew I would need some cool tunes to make it through the morning commute. With that in mind, I decided to run my usual shuffle for the full ride into work, and thus was born a new feature* at Ear to the Ground called Full-Ride Friday (hashtag #frf - patent pending** - void where prohibited) **there is not patent pending...

* Bloggers Note: I sure hope no one notices that about 90% of the time I announce I new feature, it never appears again.  If they notice, they may realize that I'm just making this up as I go around and thus may figure out that I'm not a real music blogger.

Anyway, I hit shuffle and 21 songs later, I made to my desk to begin my day...   Go past the jump to experience the first (and maybe last) ever Full-Ride Friday Shuffle!

Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle - Shifting Sands Mix

Some days, the shuffle brings up wildly diverse musical styles and eras which coexist in an uneasy alchemy of unforeseen beauty.  Other days, like today, it’s all about amazing songs with simple but powerful words and music.

Shuffle it up…
