Shuffle after the jump:
1. Song: Gonna Be Alright Artist: L.A. Symphony Album: The End is Now (2003) - (Not the Los Angeles Symphonic Orchestra, but a hip-hop band. Nashville hip-hop producers rapper extraordinaire, Hayden Coleman, who is my go to guy for anything hip-hop related was telling me about this group who had recently reunited. Right after that, I went to Goodwill and was digging through the CD bin and came across this album. Seemed like fate or at least coincidence. I dig it)
3. Song: Trainwreck Artist: The Bluefields Album: Pure (2012) - (Even if The Bluefields was not made up of members of legendary bands like Georgia Satellites, Jason and the Scorchers and Royal Court of China, this would still be a hell of a record. Oh and Joe Blanton has one of the best voices in Rock.)
Warner looks like he's about kick my ass. Fortunately, I was standing next to his mother at the time.
4. Song: Sentimental Mood Artist: Yucca Rose Album: ? ReverbNation Download (2012?) - (Beautiful jazz-based music from the insanely talented Yukke Roswenda Rose aka Yucca Rose from Jakarta, Indonesia).
This is a slide show of some of her art. Did I say she was insanely talented?
5. Song: I Don't Like You Artist: The Como Brothers Band Album: The Speed of Sound EP (2012) - (Some nifty Blues-based Pop Rock from this Long Island band. We nabbed this from an Aquarium Weekly sampler)
6. Song:Cigarettes and Wine Artist: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit Album: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit (2009) - (I know I keep harping on this, but I freaking love Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit! This is a great song. Genres are stupid, but this is a better Country song than 90% of what is played on "Country" radio. Also, bassist Jimbo Hart almost always retweets when I tweet about the 400 Unit. Also, Jason rocks a Kenny Rogers tour jacket better than anyone I know.)
7. Song: Disco Ghetto Artist: Jesse Malin and the St. Marks Social Album: Love it To Life (2010) - (Great Rock artist from New York - former member of D Generation. Disco Ghetto is just a stone cold cool song)
8. Song: After the Storm Artist: Mumford and Sons Album: Sigh No More (2010) - (I still really like this band. Another awesome song from this smash hit album)
believe it or not I could not find a video for After the Storm - here's Little Lion Man
