Come join me on a magical, musical journey covering over 60 years and crossing at least one ocean.....
"How Time Goes By" by Howlin' Brothers (Nashville's own -from their new album Howl produced by Brendan Benson on Readymade Records)
"Intro" by Wheelchair Sports Camp (a brief beginning of our coverage of this hip-hop artist from Colorado. Currently on tour with Flobots.)
"Jukebox Cannonball" by Bill Haley and the Comets (a variation of the country music standard, Wabash Cannonball made famous by the late Roy Acuff)
"Blood Beach" by Ghost and Goblin (another great track from this band's SUPERHORRORCASTLELAND album. Shares a title with a 1980 horror movie which I saw at a all-night horror movie marathon when I was young - I've included the trailer to the movie in the Playlist below)
"Rock n' Roll Lives On" by Tipi Valley (our friend from Swansea, UK is back with a new EP. This is the title track - an awesome straight-ahead rocker.)
"She's Got a Boyfriend" by Jack Carty (great song by this Indie/Folk artist from New South Wales)
"Suburban Trap Rap" (Prod. Ta-Ku" by Christian Robins (another great track from this ultra-fabulous KidGrownUp mixtape)
SHUFFLE UP NEXT - FIRST WE JUMP!
- "Alpha Dogs" by Holy Ghost Tent Revival from Sweat Like the Old Days (2012)
Excellent stuff from the latest album by the Greensboro, NC band.
- "Imagination" by Savoir Adore from Our Nature (2013)
A first taste of the forthcoming album by this Brooklyn band. They are touring with Sea Wolf - who we had in the mix the other day. Coincidence or wily move on my part? You be the judge.
- "Tennessee" by Great Divide from Great Divide (2013)
Another song from this Chicago Rock/Soul band I'm really digging on right now. This ones about my home state. So there!
- "Carry Me" by Morgan Page with Nadia Ali from In the Air (2012)
We close out the shuffle with a change of pace (actually, I think the whole shuffle has been all change of pace). Morgan Page is an Electronica artist from L.A. via Vermont. Nadia Ali is from New York. She was nominated for a Grammy for a track Morgan Page remixed. To be honest, this is a genre I know very little about. Based upon Facebook likes a whole lot of people are into this. For me, it was a great change of pace and it's always fun to step outside my comfort zone (which I hope is pretty large anyway).
