Well here we are... late, but I did listen to this shuffle this morning. Been on the road most of the day, so I'm just posting it now. I got to keep it brief, but check out the great music.
"Notes" by Mothers
Another track from Panamanian Times. Just flat out cool punkish rock from New York City. From the Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen collective.
"Fire and Flood" by Joe Sundell
This song has been lingering around my playlist for a long while. From Joe Sundell's awesome album, The Hat Thief. Dig this song.
"Are You Gonna Be My Friend?" by Drew Kohl
Our first shuffle listen to Sweetheart EP by Drew Kohl. We first heard Drew's original voice as part of Young America. Drew tackles the subject of love in some interesting ways, and Sweetheart is a really good record. But don't take my word for it, read what I had to say....
"Turn Me On" by Tipi Valley
Ed Toff (a.k.a. Tipi Valley) has been a favorite of Ear to the Ground for several years. His latest release is called Dust. Tipi Valley is from Swansea in the UK, and he doesn't use You Tube. So, you will need to listen to Turn Me On using the widget below
"American Flags in Black and White" by John Moreland
Hands down one of the best shows I've seen this year was John Moreland at The 5 Spot (just a couple of hours after seeing him at Music City Roots). He managed to silence both crowds with his gritty, gut-wrenching take on Americana/Roots/Folk music. Hands down one of the best records of 2015 is Moreland's High on Tulsa Heat. Here is a track from that album.
"H.S.K.T." by Sylvan Esso
Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes. Sylvan Esso is Amelia Meath of Mountain Man and Nick Sanborn who does electronic producing under the name Made of Oak. This song is simple yet brilliant, infectious without being obnoxious.
"Lone Star Song" by Grant Lee Buffalo
Might Joe Moon was a Goodwill CD bin find, and I have really enjoyed discovering this album. Lone Star Song may be my favorite song on the album, but I'm not sure. It is a favorite, though...
"Jim Along Josie" by The Barefoot Movement
I can count on one finger the number of young, tradition folk bands that I have met in a chance encounter at the Cash Cabin Studio. The Barefoot Movement would be that one finger. Off of their EP The High Road. Jim Along Josie is a foot-stomping traditional folk song.
"Ground" by Terrible
Terrible are Nashville band who are anything but... "Ground" is a song from their album Oakwood which was released earlier this month.
