The week is rolling on...
A few notes:
1. Sad to report yet another incident of touring band having their gear stolen... this time it hit Two Cow Garage. They are an awesome band. If you want to help them out. A GoFundMe account has been set up.
2. I will be heading out around midday tomorrow for sunny Florida for the Safety Harbor Song Festival. Expect a bare bones shuffle tomorrow morning if everything goes as planned. And keep an eye out for my reports from the front lines...
3. Found out my good friends, Young America have their new EP featured on the front page of Noisetrade in the New and Notable section. Well deserved, and if you haven't, grab that EP and show some love.
Let's jump into the shuffle....
"God or Man" by Ivan and Alyosha
Another cool song from All the Times we Had....
"You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" by Bob Dylan and the Band
Two things: 1. I think it is awesome that The Basement Tapes are getting such renewed attention. An incredible period of musical history... 2. Come down to Fran's Eastside on a Wednesday night, and you might hear Darrin Bradbury cover this song... you can even ask nicely if he is in the right mood...
"I'm So Happy I Found You" by Lucinda Williams
An unfinished Hank Williams song recorded by the amazing Lucinda Williams... yep!
"One Voice/I Wanna Drive the Zamboni" by Gear Daddies
The closing track from the album Billy's Live Bait, plus this track includes in the hidden bonus track that helped make this great band immortal, at least with hockey fans...
"If It Feels Good" by Michael Sackler-Berner
From the EP, Fragile Magic and available as Double EP on Noisetrade. Some great modern Rock music from the Big Apple.
"Future 40's (String of Pearls)" by Syd Straw with Michael Stipe
Syd Straw and Michael Stipe worked together when Syd was a member of Golden Palominos. One of the many stand out tracks from Syd's album Surprise.
"Where is My Mind?" by Pixies
Originally from the album Surfer Rosa. The song was prominently featured in the film adaptation of the Chuck Palahniuk novel Fight Club, but we aren't allowed to talk about that... there is a rule apparently.
"Open Your Soul" by [debut]
Another song from their new album, Postcards from Berlin which is out now. There is a great electronic rock sound here that harkens back to the heyday of bands like Depeche Mode, but the music does not sound dated or derivation but rather sounds fresh and modern.
"Feels No Pain" by Tim Carroll
Tim Carroll is one of East Nashville's greatest assets and hardest working musicians. His long-running Friday Rock and Roll Happy Hour at The 5 Spot has become an institution. He was featured on the cover of East Nashvillian's Guitar Town issue. Ear to the Ground calls him, "A consummate professional with a great clock." (or at least we just did... His new album, Pure as Coal, which includes this song, is out now and you should definitely check it out.
