Busy, busy... A few things before we jump into the shuffle...
First, a reminder that next week we begin our very #E2TG approach to The Best of 2013. Stay tuned for that.
A couple of live videos hit our inbox this week and wanted to share... The Mad Doctors are from Brooklyn and they kick some major butt. Check out this performance from 11/30/2013.
This next video is from our Nashville friends Year of October. We are looking forward to a new album (fingers crossed) for 2014. Meanwhile, this past weekend, they did a mini-tour which included a stop in Louisville which is where this next video was filmed. Check it out!
On to today's mixture of mixed musical melodies....
EXTRA BITS: "The Remainder" by Andrew Ferris "Freaks" by The Hawk in Paris "Jealousy" by Chamberlin (note: read the band's Facebook Page Biography) "Sunday Morning" by The Velvet Underground (and Nico) "Hold Tight" by Fats Waller "Cold Chicago" by Humming House "Refuse to Hide" by Jenny Leigh "Viet Nam" by Minutemen "R*A*M*O*N*E*S" by Motorhead "Sweet Head" by David Bowie "The Wheels of Love" by Terminal Gods
Our twofer Thursday Tracks (okay I made that up and I know twofer should be on Tuesday but whatever):
"Nothing Indeed" and "Take 5, D." by the Minutemen (from Double Nickels on the Dime.)
"Sex" by The 1975 (from The 1975. A band and album that made some year end lists. I like what I've heard so far.)
"Cold Blooded" by American Babies (from Knives and Teeth. A Philadelphia band. Another band that I'm just getting acquainted with, and I like what I hear)
"Fox" by Cloud Gavin (from Posture.
"Whatevering" by The Great American Novel (from :( . A stand-out track and a great introduction to the musical and humorous style of this New York band.)
"Fallen" by The Westies (from West Side Stories. This album is rapidly becoming a favorite of mine. Just pure honest songwriting, well played and sung. Really... that's all it takes.)
