Let's jump back into the Shuffles with an extended mix of music.
As usual, time is short - so no dilly-dallying. Which is a shame, really, because I am so good at dilly-dallying....
JUMP to the tunage!
"Just Poppin' Out To Fight a War" by Cropdusters (we grabbed this off the September edition of the Feel Bad for You monthly mixtape. Don't know much about this band - except they were British and were under-appreciated in their day.)
"Separations" by Diarrhea Planet (The red hot Nashville band with the attention grabbing name. My advice - get past the name and dig the music. - On Infinity Cat Records)
"Love Has No Pride" by Linda Ronstadt ('Cause seriously, seriously - what other blog will transition naturally and unironically from Diarrhea Planet to Linda Ronstadt? No offense to other music blogs, but when it comes to awkward and bizarre transitions - there aren't many who can (or who want to) touch E2TG)
"Everyone Knows" by Ghost Pal (Another from the Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen Section 4 compilation. Ghost Pal are from Brooklyn and they rock in the funkiest, coolest way possible)
"Mrs. Wurley" by Humming House (from a Noisetrade live album. Nashville neo-traditionalists offer up more of what they do better than most)
"I Shall Be Released" by The Box Tops (Alex Chilton and company cover Dylan. Need I say more?)
"Every Mile" by The Parson Red Heads (A Portland band from a Paste Magazine sampler)]
"Dropped the Pop" by Killing Kuddles (one of my favorites from his Odd Man Out EP. Come to think of it, I think I've said this about almost every song on the record. And I meant it, too!)
"Repo Man" by Those Darlins (To help celebrate the release of the landmark Blur the Lines album by the Nashville favorites - how 'bout we check out their cover of the Iggy Pop song from the Soundtrack to the 1984 Alex Cox film. Bonus points if you understand how the subtitle of this post and the movie are related)
"Real Estate" by Wild Child (the more I hear from this Austin band, the more I like)
"Every Time I See a Plane" by Casey Black (really dig this song by the Nashville singer/songwriter)
"Rhymin' and Stealin'" by Beastie Boys ('cause. Just 'cause.)
"Requiem for the Disconsolate" by James Crawford ('cause sometimes when the heavy metal kid from high school grows up and makes a record... I have a feeling this is going to be one of my favorite albums of the autumn. Official release is just a few weeks away)
"See See See" by Ani Difranco (a live version of a non-album cut. From a recent Noisetrade sampler)
"Ava" by prattle on, rick (from his brand new album Some Quiet Majesty. Another new favorite of mine)
