Had a great time last night on my first visit to the (relatively) new City Winery Nashville. The first ever Nashville Nights featured Darrin Bradbury and Tim Easton with Megan Palmer with special guest Amy Speace. It's a gorgeous building and the music sounded great.
A bit short on time. As I do every year on this date, I begin the Video Playlist with a song (not part of the shuffle) by Cracker from their self-titled debut.
"Kumbayah" by Guadalcanal Diary
Let's sit around the campfire and hold hands!
"Paradise Found" by Gretchen Peters
So happy that Gretchen Peters' awesome 2012 album Hello Cruel World is available on Noisetrade.com.
"Control Issue" by Manilow
Fun fact, it is next to impossible to find this band on YouTube without seeing hundreds of Barry Manilow videos... Also, wouldn't it be funny if this was actually a secret project by Barry Manilow. It's not, but it would be epic. This is some great sounding punk inspired music.
"Wild Horses" by The Rolling Stones
One of my favorite Stones' songs. Old and in the Way (Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Peter Rowan and Vassar Clemons) do an awesome cover of this song.
"Fire from Heaven" by Guadalcanal Diary
Hearing this got me reflecting on how great a band Guadalcanal Diary were.
"Nomadic" by Nicke Borg Homeland
It's been a good week for cool music from Sweden. This is another random find on Freegal that I like quite a bit.
"Okay is All She Said..." by Batkhi Dahn
Another from the amazing Batkhi Dahn (aka Hayden Nork of The Foresters). Cool stuff!
"High Fidelity" by Elvis Costello and the Attractions
Keeping it going in High Fidelity!
"You Dream Too Much" by Richard Thompson
Can you dream too much? Apparently so... Rumor and Sigh is the bomb!
"Camille" by Gretchen Peters
Closing things out with another from Hello Cruel World which made me think about seeing the Greta Garbo film Camille in high school drama class...
