Monday Morning Music Shuffle - Ugly Moon Mix

Greetings.  After an extended Holiday weekend, Ear to the Ground is back with another slam, bang mix of music. During the recess, I've been busy adding songs to our rotating playlist from which the Morning Pre-Shuffle and Shuffle are drawn.

Today, we have a pretty decent mixture of old and new music which covers a variety of musical styles and genres.  Hope you enjoy it.  The Pre-shuffle kicks off right after the JUMP

"I'm Wide Awake" by Jeffrey James (Nashville based soulful singer - was on Season 3 of The Voice)

"Vulture in My Sky" by The Jake Levinson Band (from Austin - music video directed by our good friend Raindogg!)

"Lonesome Street" by The Blind Owl Band (Our second peak into the forthcoming album from this awesome New York band. The Train I Ride is Made of Wood and Steel is due out in two days. If you live anywhere in NY and NJ, be sure to catch The Blind Owl Band on their album release tour.  Saturday's show in Saratoga Springs features our friends The Lucky Jukebox Brigade!)

"Raymond Carver" by The Great American Novel (We continue to mentally prepare ourselves for the highly anticipated new album by this New York band)

"My Iron Lung" (live) by Radiohead (more 1995 goodness via Paste Magazine and Noisetrade)

"Turn Me On Dead Man" by Bill Lloyd (Lloyd has been a fixture on the Nashville music scene for a long, long time.  I first became familiar with him when he was rocking out with his band The December Boys.  Since then, he has released a string of albums which are as close to pure pop heaven and one can hope to reach, he was 1/2 of the Country music duo Foster and Lloyd, and more recently he curates a rotating band called The Long Players who recreate classic albums.  His Facebook posts provide an excellent history of great music. This song is from his 1999 album Standing on the Shoulders of Giants.  His latest album is Boy King of Tokyo)


"Silence" by Beijing from Night (2013)
 Our new friend's from Connecticut Beijing jump back into the Shuffle with another track from their rocking new album Night.  

"American Music" by Violent Femmes from Why Do Birds Sing? (1991)
From the Fifth Studio album. American Music may be the band's second best known song.  Violent Femmes have reunited in 2013 and played Coachella and Milwaukee's Summerfest. 

"Long Days of Longing" by James the Giant from James the Giant (2013)
This powerful debut by the San Francisco singer/songwriter who goes by the moniker James the Giant is still about two weeks from its official release.  The first single, Two Weeks on the Ocean (which we featured within the last week or so) is out and had a premier at USA Today!

"Creep" (live) by Radiohead from PASTE.COM Presents: Radiohead Live at Tramps June 1, 1995 (2013)

"Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special"
