Pre-Shuffle: We started things off with another track from the fantastic self-titled EP by The Foresters - a track called "Alone". Next, we had a fun little triad of songs which featured two more songs from The Lucky Jukebox Brigade's album Pretty Well Damned. In between, "Taffy" and "Carnivultures", we had Sinatra's version of Gershwin's classic Someone to Watch Over Me. It was really cool how well those three songs worked together. We closed out the pre-shuffle with a track from Odd Man Out, the Killing Kuddles' album we reviewed on Wednesday.
Coming up after the JUMP, we have a shuffle which includes two cover songs and an Arrested Development reference...
- "There's Always Money in the Banana Stand" by Bridge Under Fire from Why Wait? (2012)/The Appetizer Built4BBQ sampler (2013)
We have a second song from the Syracuse punk band Bridge Under Fire from The Appetizer sampler put out by the good folks at Built4BBQ. The song named after a memorable quote from the cult (and soon to be revived) television series Arrested Development, is the last song on the band's 2012 album, Why Wait?
- "Unwed Fathers" by Deer Tick feat. Liz Isenberg from Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine (2010)
A great cover by some cool folks from Rhode Island off of an absolute "must-have" tribute album which came out a few years ago. In our playlist below, we have a live version of Deer Tick perfoming the song plus as a bonus, we have Prine himself with the awesome Carrie Rodriquez performing the song.
- "Knocking on Heaven's Door" by You and Me from You and Me (CD 2013)
We close out with our friends Val and James of You and Me with a soulful take on the classic Dylan tune.
