Today's shuffle is after the jump
- "Suit and Tie" by Justin Timberlake (feat. Jay Z) from the forthcoming The 20/20 Experience (2013)
Okay ya'll JT is a Tennessee boy and he is probably one of the most multi-talented chaps around. His work on SNL, his "History of Rap" numbers with Jimmy Fallon and yes his new music is really cool. This is mainstream pop/soul/rhythm and blues/hip-hop of the sort you don't usually read about on Ear to the Ground, but when I had the chance to grab the MP3 I didn't hesitate.
- "Mind Eraser" and "Little Black Submarines" by The Black Keys from El Camino (2012)
The shuffle brings us a double shot from The Black Keys seventh studio album. The album is called El Camino which is also the name of a car which infused my pop culture consciousness for much of my young adult life. The cover image is purposefully not a Chevy El Camino. Anyway, this is a really good album and Dan and Patrick are transplanted Nashvillians.
- "Mama Don't You Tell Me" by The Howlin' Brothers from Readymade Records Sampler 2013 (2013)
From the brand spanking new album Howl by The Howlin' Brothers who officially make this an all-Tennessee shuffle and bring us some good new, old-fashioned music. We grabbed this from a Noisetrade Sampler by the good folks at Readymade Records. Get your Readymade fix below
The official E2TG Tall Order, Short Change Playlist brought to you by You Tube featuring some of the songs from today's pre-shuffle and shuffle. Where the exact song was not available we found a cool video from the same artist.
