Did you miss me? I'm back after a two day absence with another shuffle of songs across a broad musical spectrum. Meanwhile, it is Friday! So let's celebrate!
"Baby I'm Doin' It" by Eight O'Five Jive
Nashville's Jump/Jive/Swing band, Eight O'Five Jive are back with another song from their fantastic recent album, Too Many Men.
"Stuck on Repeat" by Hudson K
Hudson K are an electronic synth rock duo from Knoxville, TN. This song is from their 2013 Ouroboros and the Black Dove. We grabbed it off a Noisetrade Bonnaroo mixtape which I take to mean they will be performing in Manchester next month, so check them out if you are down on the farm...
"Cherry Licorice" by The Felice Brothers
Dig this track from The Felice Brothers' 2014 album, Favorite Waitress.
"Red Rover" by Paper Aeroplanes
UK Dream Folk band, Paper Aeroplanes are up next with a track that first appeared on the EP Time to Be in 2012, and then was included on their 2013 album Little Letters.
"Dig It Up" by Tim Lee 3
A live version of a tune from the classic 2010 double album, Raucous Americanus by E2TG favorites Tim Lee 3 from Knoxville. Check out all of their music including their latest album 33 1/3 at the usual places or visit their website.
"Surprise, Surprise" by The Rolling Stones
This was the final track on the Stones' third American album, The Rolling Stones, Now! which was released in 1965.
"Games People Play" (Joe South cover) by The Georgia Satellites
From In the Land of Salvation and Sin... this song is a cover of a 1968 song by the late Singer-Songwriter, Joe South, who also wrote the song, "Rose Garden" made famous by Lynn Anderson.
"Men w/ Tears" by Rich Robbins (prod. by Nate France)
Some awesome Hip Hop music emanating from the suburbs of Chicago via the city of Philadelphia and currently settled on the campus of University of Wisconsin - Madison. Informed, honest, and innovative.
"Challenge of the Love Warriors" by Tom Tom Club
In celebration of the birthday of Chris Frantz founding member of both Tom Tom Club and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, Talking Heads, we have this track written by Frantz from Tom Tom Club's 1988 album, Boom Boom Chi Boom Boom. The track is breathy and sexy and (like all of Tom Tom Club's music) incredibly fun.
"The Immortals" by The Ghoul Goes West
We close out the day and the week with another really cool song, from one of the newest Ear to the Ground favorites. The Ghoul Goes West are from Northwest Arkansas. This song is from the awesome album, Ghosts and Bones and Blood and Things.
