At press time, No Depression is featuring my latest live review on the front page of their site. Check it out.
Meanwhile, we kick off the week with a morning shuffle that does not feature any dancing sharks...
"Big Lizard" by The Dead Milkmen
The almost title track from Big Lizard in My Backyard.
"When Will We Be Married?" by The Waterboys
A modern arrangement of a traditional tune from Fisherman's Blues.
"Ordinary World" by Heather Powell
Heather Powell's next album "A Haze of Grays and Blues" is due out at the end of this month, and what I've heard of it is stunning. The song featured today is a stand out track from her 2012 album Believe it to Life.
"Voodoo Doll" by Stacy Mitchhart
From his album Live My Life which was recorded at Fry Pharmacy an all analog studio here in Nashville, Voodoo Doll is the kind of no holds barred Blues that you will hear on the latest album from this Nashville legend.
"Follow Me Down" by Science!
Science! are from Seattle! and they play Music! Why am I so excited? Give a listen and find out. Alcoves and Alleyways is out now. If you want, you can check out a sampler from the album via Noisetrade and then once convinced, pick up the whole thing at the usual spots. They've been on Couch by Couchwest which makes them good eggs in my book....
"I Really Don't Want to Know" by Jason and the Scorchers
More classic Jason and the Scorchers - this one is from Lost and Found.
"Opportunity" by Elvis Costello and the Attractions
Elvis Costello was and is a songwriting genius. Opportunity has always been a favorite of mine off of Get Happy!!
"Don't Get Loud With Me Bitch" by Neighborhood Texture Jam
A song about Far East foreign policy in the latter part of the 1980s served up by this unique and awesome band from Memphis. From their album, Funeral Mountain.
"The New American Dream" by Grant Peeples and the Peeples Republik
Our last taste of the fantastic Grant Peeples' album Punishing the Myth. I got this CD when I met Grant after he played the Wild Ponies party during Americana week - at The Building in East Nashville.
