Well - we made it through another week of shuffles. Let's blow it out and go out and live our weekends... shall we?
Shuffle comes next:
"The beating on the window can't compare with the beating that I'm taking"
"Big Blue Hole" by David Olney from When the Deal Goes Down
We complete three days in a row with songs from the latest album by David Olney. In the video mix is Mr. Olney reciting "Kubla Khan" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge - which as I mentioned yesterday that he performed at the beginning of one of his recent Happy Hour shows at The Five Spot in East Nashville. If you dig it, which I think you will, there are more videos of David Olney reciting poetry available on YouTube. Check them all out!
"I Hope That I Get Old Before I Die" by They Might Be Giants from First Album Live
My sentiments exactly. I think this is the penultimate track from our survey of this live recreation of the first TMBG album. It's been fun, and I like using penultimate correctly because it makes me feel smart.
"Julie" by Darrin Bradbury from unreleased demos
I've knew a girl named Julie. Actually, I've known and know a lot of girls and women named Julie in my life. None of them have anything to do with this song, so I'm not sure why I'm mentioning it. I do need to say, that Darrin's weekly Wednesday night gig at Fran's Eastside Tavern keeps getting better and better.
"Bummer 1 Hit Single" by Darrin Bradbury from unreleased demos
"If it's all right with you, I'd like to start this one off with a joke. Why'd the folk singer quit? I don't know. I guess he was broke."
"This songs a bummer, let's talk about summer..."
"Breakfast Burrito" by Shabbadoo from Pajama
What's better for a morning shuffle than a Breakfast Burrito? I still find it amazing that so many amazingly talented people have been a part of my earthly experience.
"Pipes" by Vinyl Thief from Deer Head Music Presents: Indie Mixtape Nashville
Vinyl Thief were our Band of the Month way back in July 2012 when we still had Bands of the Month. Fun facts: Vinyl Thief are from Nashville, way back in 2012 we featured them in a post that also included Darrin Bradbury's old band Big Wilson River, and they once played the summer kick off party for my friend Hayden Coleman's food truck - Moovers and Shakers. All that and "Pipes" is cool song and is featured on the recent Deer Head Music Indie Mixtape which we have been spinning of late.
"When I Was a Boy" by Dar Williams from The Honesty Room
I know I say this quite often, but truly this is one of my all time favorite, favorite songs. The first time I heard this song, I literally cried.
"Land of 1000 Girls" by Scruffy the Cat from Time Never Forgets - The Anthology ('86-'88)/High Octane Revival
Switching gears rapidly and harshly, we have some delicious 80s music from this legendary Boston band.
"Heart of Texas" by Taco Land from Heart of Texas
This was the song that first introduced me to Taco Land (this and their amazing over of the Bowie song "Five Years"). It was good to hear it again when I got it as a Free Download for buying an "Audrey Strong" bracelet (proceeds benefit St. Judes). Sending out positive thoughts to Joseph, Audrey, and the whole Russell and extended Taco Land family.
