We try to cover as much as we can in our all too brief time together... Today our shuffle begins with a Hall and Oates cover, heads to a Top Peoples Health Farm, a cover of a 80s New Wave song by an 80s Punk band, some of the minor lakes of Wisconsin, a prelude, some words of wisdom (and a barn with six red stripes), some Nashville-based ska-core music from Built for BBQ, a love story straight from a shitty motel room in New Orleans, a song about Tibetan sites for above ground putrefaction of human remains as a place of spiritual practice, some early period Style Council, and a song about Fast Cars by one of my new favorite Nashville songwriters.
Details to follow:
"Do What You Want, Be What You Are" (Hall and Oates cover) by Lael Summer from Burden to Bear
Another great True Groove artist with a sexy cover of Hall and Oates.
"Life at a Top Peoples Health Farm" by The Style Council from The Singular Adventures of The Style Council/Confessions of a Pop Group
Later period The Style Council.
"99 Red Balloons" (Nena Cover) by 7 Seconds from Walk Together, Rock Together
For a long time, I thought Luft meant red in German. It doesn't.
"The Almost Great Lakes" by Darrin Bradbury from The Almost Great Crepe's
It's a tall tale, a tall tale, a tale tell in short...
"Prelude" by Abigail Washburn from City of Refuge
A wonderful banjo prelude to the Minton Sparks song that follows...
"Words of Wisdom" by Minton Sparks from Middlin' Sisters
Minton Sparks paints a picture with her words just like the blood red stripes of paint on the side of the barn.
"Isolato" by Stuck Lucky from The Entrée (Built for BBQ Sampler)
From the recent Built for BBQ sampler - The Entrée. Built for BBQ is a collective of like-minded musicians. Mostly based in New York State, Stuck Lucky bring their unique Nashville Ska-Core to the party.
"Junkie Love" by Darrin Bradbury from currently unreleased demos
A new song, and one of my favorites from Darrin Bradbury. Nashville - come down to Fran's Eastside about 9:00 tonight to here this and many other cool tunes. In lieu of a video for this song, I have included a video for a love song, disguised as a protest song, disguised as a love song about the post-graduate student housing crisis we are facing in America today..
"Training in the Charnal Ground" by Grant Peeples and the Peeples Republik
This song and the song featured in our video playlist are two of my favorites from Grant Peeples' awesome set at The Building during Americana weekend.
"Speak Like a Child" by The Style Council from The Singular Adventures of The Style Council/Introducing The Style Council
Early period The Style Council...
"Fast Cars" by Zachariah Red from "This Town" E.P.
Due to an unfortunate incident involving keys and my van, I missed a lot of Zach's set Monday night at The Building, but I loved what I did hear, and I look forward to making up for my tardiness very soon. You can get the This Town EP - here
