Back at you with another shuffle after a day off. Made it to four different venues last night to see friends play music. Two downtown, two on the eastside. Heard a couple of great songwriter circles - one with Taylor Alexander of the band Young America and one with Lindsay Ellyn. Hustled to the East Nashville - Logue's Black Raven Speakeasy to catch the last part of Amelia White's set and a moving set from the incomparable Julie Christensen, and then drove a few block down Gallatin Pike to catch the tail end of a set from Darrin Bradbury and the Fran's Eastside Super-High Band (Tim Carroll, Cameron Carrus, and David Strayer). As Lindsay said, the hustle is real...
Today's shuffle is long on great music, but I am short on time... so check it out, google if you need to and enjoy our little video approximation.
Title track - a nice way to start another fine day...
"The Devil's Masquerade" by The Radicals from Halloween Rhymes and Children's Crimes
Nothing like some punk rock music to get the morning hopping...
"Walter" (Acoustic Noisetrade Exclusive) by Heath McNease from Fort Wayne (songs inspired by the film)
Any song that begins by referencing David Bowie is okay in my book. I really can relate to this song... Ground Control to Major Tom...
"Shake 'em On Down" by Sidestreet Reny and Lil' Bell from Holler
New music from a West Coast Blues duo I've become very fond of lately. With a great
R.L. BurnsideMississippi Fred McDowell cover (I haven't fact checked this - so if I'm wrong let me know and I will correct/retract).Thanks to Sturgis Nikides for the assist.
"Living the Dream" by Sturgill Simpson from 2014-05-13 - Grimey's Records - Nashville/Metamodern Sounds in Country Music
What can I say? The incredibly awesome Sturgill Simpson recorded live at the awesome Grimey's New and Pre-Loved Music.
"The Mayor of Simpleton" by XTC from Oranges and Lemons
If you don't like this song... I just don't understand you... One of my all-time favorites.
"Audeamus" by Clocks and Clouds from The Creation of Matter
Classic Rock just not in the way the term is usually used...
"I Was Raised in Babylon" by Yusuf/Cat Stevens from Yusuf
I remember when "Peace Train" was pulled from the 10,000 Maniacs In my Tribe album. I saw this new album pop up on Freegal - I listened to a few seconds of this opening track, and I had to download it...
"Ain't Nobody (Gonna Save My Soul)" by Pork Chop Willie from Love is the Devil
I actually think we've already featured this song - I think it got added to my playlist twice. I'm not complaining. Some great Hill Country Blues from North Mississippi by way of Brooklyn, New York.
