Back at the shuffle game after an extended weekend.... Let's do this thing!
"Rat" by Tigerman WOAH!
Tigerman WOAH! are a Massachusetts/Georgia band. They describe their music as: "Appalachian mountain folk/bluegrass influenced punk rock with the occasional hip-hop freak-out." I can't say that I disagree and yes it is as good as it sounds. This song is on the album Up South Vol. II & I.
"Gluten Farm" by Circus Propaganda
Circus Propaganda are from Bethany, Connecticut. The band includes Evan and Hayden of The Foresters. This song is on the album Botany. Look for a new album Parabola soon maybe...
"In My Own Time" by The Three O'clock
What about a bit of Paisley Underground, and a cover of a 1967 song from the Bee Gees. This cover was on the 1983 album Sixteen Tambourines. The original song was only 16 years old when this cover was recorded, and now the cover is over 30 years old, and it sounds fantastic.
"All Around the World Or The Myth of Fingerprints" by Paul Simon
From Simon's album, Graceland and featuring the East L.A. band Los Lobos. "I've seen them all and man they're all the same..."
"Our Love" by The Bros Landreth
The Winnipeg band with a song from their latest album, Let it Lie.
"I Woke Up" by Mouth Reader
The Murfreesboro band with a song from their album, Hands. The album is available packaged as a pop-up book that was released on Record Store Day.
"Misery Loves Company" by Eight O' Five Jive
Another swinging song from the album, Too Many Men, but Nashville's jumpingest, jiviest combo.
"Down the Dip" by Aztec Camera
The final song on the original release of Aztec Camera's 1983 album High Land, Hard Rain. Our second 1983 song in the shuffle today. I was 17 in 1983, it was a pretty good year.
"Lady in the Radiator" by Black Iron Prison
Black Iron Prison are a long running Metal band from Up-State (up state? Upstate? up-state?) New York. The current line-up includes Elijah Hargrave who was a member of the 2013 E2TG Band of the Year Skeletons in the Piano. So that makes this band family... the black iron sheep of the family?
"Know Your Animals" by Atticus Floyd
Atticus Floyd is from Connecticut. They are part of Circus Propaganda who we heard earlier in the shuffle. Part of the amazing creative output from the youth of that northeastern state. This song or a version of this song or a song with the same title is also on the Circus Propaganda album. Anyway, it's a cool song, and since I couldn't find a video for Atticus Floyd - I posted one for a song from the Pink Floyd album Animals which share 2 out of 5 words with this song and band. If you want to hear the Atticus Floyd song, I'm attaching a widget below.
"Country Delight" by Country Mike (Beastie Boys)
From the Mike D album, Country Mike's Greatest Hits.
