We have a bunch of cool songs by some silly boys and one not so silly, but very talented woman. Let's go!
"Falling" by Pork Chop Willie from Love is the Devil
Another great track from the album which came out earlier this year. You need to hear this.
"Silly Boys" by Holy Modal Rounders from Last Round
How about this? New York psychedelic folk duo - who have collaborated with Sam Shepard among others. This song is from their 1978 album.
"Head" by The Orwells from Other Voices EP
Think Rock and Roll is dead? Have you not heard The Orwells?
"Medicine Springs" (Stanley Brother Cover) by Sturgill Simpson from 2014-05-13 - Grimey's Records - Nashville, TN
Think Country music sucks? Have you not heard Sturgill Simpson?
"Who Woulda Thunk It?" (Greg Brown Cover) by Grant Peeples and the Peeples Republik from Punishing the Myth
One of my highlights of AMA week was being introduced to the music of and meeting Grant Peeples. This is the only cover on his incredible album - of which you will be hearing lots more - and it's a good one. I never complain about a cover song when it is a Greg Brown song being covered.
"А где мне взять такую песню" by Orera from 1970
Ya'll I seriously love this music - more from this amazing Georgian folk/jazz group who recorded back in the 1970s or so.
"White Gardenias" by Justin Townes Earle from NoiseTrade Eastside Manor Session/Single Mothers
Okay it got cropped out of the picture, but it is the time, I shared the front page of No Depression with Justin Townes Earle. This is a song from his brand new album recorded in a special session for NoiseTrade at Eastside Manor. Trivia: The photo of the cover of his new album was taken at a Nashville park commonly known as Dragon Park. This park was also featured in the album art of one of R.E.M.'s albums.
"Blue Light of the Fire" by Heather Powell from Believe it to Life
Heather Powell has an amazing voice, and it is always good to have her in the shuffle.
"Don't Think About Her When You're Trying to Drive" by Little Village from Little Village
Good advice from the Little Village
"Following the Plan" by bellwire from Following the Plan
This seems to be the latest song from New Hampshire based bellwire. It's a cool powerpop song. If you aren't hip to these guys - definitely check them out.
