Well... let's just jump into today's shuffle!
From the album Exit a Hero - some most excellent, proggy sounding, Indie Rock out of Long Island, NY.
"Watching the Sun Go Down" by Kevin Gordon
We've started listening to Kevin Gordon's forthcoming album, but this one goes way back to his 2005 album called, O Come Look At the Burning. We got it off a Noisetrade Sampler that this still available at that site.
"Trap Door" by Stars
Stars are from Canada. Their Facebook Page lists their genre as Melodramatic Popular Songs, Amazon lists it as Alternative Rock. E2TG doesn't care too much for genres. Pretty upbeat fun sounding music.
"SGS" by Grumsling
Another track from our new friends from Oakland, California. Grumsling are one of my favorite "discoveries" of the year so far. This song is from their 7 song release from 2014 called Full Coverage
"Noise" by Jesse Terry
Connecticut based singer-songwriter Jesse Terry with a track from his latest EP called, The Calm and The Storm. This is one of those gorgeous songs that seems like it should have always existed. From some reason, it struck me that this song would not be out of place on Billy Joel's classic Cold Spring Harbor - and I mean that as high praise.
"Pictionary" by APE MEN
"Edgy indietronica formed on the post Iron Curtain fringe of the European Union." From their debut EP Zero which was released earlier this year. Pretty cool sounds... and a fun reminder of when me and my sister ruled at Pictionary the game.
"Destroy Me" by The Naddiks
The Naddiks are a high energy Alternative band from Canberra. This is the opening track from their EP called 21cb.
"Mama's Don't Let Your Cowboys Grow Up to be Babies" by Dale Watson
So far, the shuffle has moved between singer-song writers and alt/prog/indie bands from all over the world. Let's bring this whole mess together as only E2TG can... with Dale Watson covering Tony Joe White's answer to the Ed and Patsy Bruce song made famous by Waylon and Willie. This song is on Dale's latest album Call Me Insane.
