In addition to the Nashville RSD festivities, I know our friends Tim Lee 3 are playing at Lost and Found Records in Knoxville, Tennessee.
If anyone else has Record Store Day events to promote, please let me know, and I will try to get it mentioned in the next couple of days. Bottom line people, support your local record store(s) not just Saturday but all through the year.
Pre-Shuffle: In the pre-shuffle today, we heard a couple more tracks from the KidGrownUp mixtape by Christian Robins. If you haven't - check it out here.
We heard music from a couple of totally unrelated but equally awesome Nashville artists. Leroy Powell and the Messengers released their latest album, Life and Death, at the end of February - this is some real deal Country/Rock. Grass Root Kids have been getting a lot of buzz in the past several months since I first found out about them. Among their members is the daughter of a good friend. They have a 3 song sampler from their Debut Ep Loose Change out on Noisetrade.
Rounding out the Pre-shuffle is a raucous and totally cool cover of the Hank Williams song, Lost Highway, by The Replacements from their brand new benefit CD, Songs for Slim. The record is to support Slim Dunlap who took Bob Stinson's place in The Replacements, and who suffered a devastating stroke.
Shuffle after the jump.
- "Built for BBQ" by The Slaughterhouse Chorus from The Appetizer (2013)/The Slaughterhouse Chorus (2012)
We had the good fortune of seeing The Slaughterhouse Chorus live on their No Tour for Old Men with The End Men just a few weeks back. They play an awesome mix of Americanaish Punk, and it's even better than that description implies.
- "Waiting Around to Die" by The Be Good Tanyas from Introducing Townes Van Zandt via The Great Unknown (2009)
A Shuffle that includes a Townes Van Zandt song cannot be over-appreciated, and this gorgeous cover by the Vancouver Alt-Folk group The Be Good Tanyas was very much appreciated.
- "Indian Ate a Woodchuck" by April Verch from That's How We Run (2011)
A traditional old time fiddle song done up right by another Canadian musician. For the video we have another April Verch song and another artist doing Indian Ate a Woodchuck since we couldn't find a video of April's version.
- "Power Failure" by Minuteflag from Minuteflag (1985-86)
Why not close out a shuffle that included a bunch of folksy, countryish music with a straight up avant garde jam featuring members of Minutemen and Black Flag. "Yes, This is the way I want to..."
