Set list from Royal Court of China Reunion Show 6/21/2013
So a longer than usual morning commute in three parts instead of the usual two, and tons of great music. As usual, the Video Playlist at the end attempts to represent the songs in the mix - actual song when possible, alternate song or video if not possible. Only one artist/song is not in the Playlist but more on that later.
"The Turning Quiet" by Joshua Worden (Soulful Pop)
"Two Weeks on the Ocean" by James the Giant (not represented on playlist 'cause I couldn't find any videos - debut self-titled EP and this song is the first "single" - Album due out next month - a song about his brother who was killed in Afghanistan. This one gave me goosebumps)
"Get Lucky" by Daft Punk feat. Pharell (Yeah!)
"Justice'nt Right" by Wheelchair Sports Camp (Yes! Very yes!)
"Stuck" by Canopy Climbers (from their latest - Miles)
"Forget It" by Royal Court of China (they did this one in the show Saturday night. A favorite from the self-titled record)
"The Ballad of Billy Polk" by The End Men (Hell yeah - The End Men back in the shuffle with a favorite from their latest, Play With Your Toys (ah who am I kidding their all favorites)
"Alex Chilton" by The Replacements (if this was all The Replacements had done, it would be enough to immortalize them... "I never go far, without a little Big Star")
"The Walking Dead" by Bella's Bartok (Um... Oh, yeah!)
End of Pre-Pre-Shuffle
"Coming On a Black Day" by Stomacher (One of our favorites from the early days of this blog. This song - hell this whole album and their subsequent release are brilliant. This may still be my favorite Stomacher song)
"You've Got Yr. Cherry Bomb" Mr. Kind and Picture Atlantic (collab. featuring our friend Brian Bergeron's band Mr. Kind joining forces with San Jose band Picture Atlantic, to take on a Spoon song)
"Psycho Therapy" by Ramones (First you try Psycho Therapy - from 1983s Subterranean Jungle)End of Pre-Shuffle
"On My Way" by Ivan and Alyosha from All the Times We Had (2013)
They are from Seatlle, their name comes from characters from The Brothers Karanazov. Great songs.
"Lost Connection" by Colt Cleveland from Colt Cleveland EP (2013)
Some awesome new Pop. My friend Hayden Coleman does some beats on Colt Cleveland's new songs - maybe this one???
"Teenage Lobotomy" and "Rockaway Beach" by the Ramones from Rocket to Russia (1977)
If Psycho Therapy doesn't work... ah let's just hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach....
"Here Comes a Regular" by The Replacements from Tim (1985)
"First the lights, and the collar goes up,and the wind begins to blow
You turn our back on a pay-you-back last call
First the plants, the leaves, the grass and here comes the snow
There ain't much to rake here anyway in the fall"
