"STSisGOLD" by Sugar Tongue Slim
Another track from the World Café Sessions mega-download. I don't know much about Sugar Tongue Slim, but I dig this, and I am impressed by the diversity of music that World Café puts out into the world.... almost as diverse at #E2TG...
"Carousel" by Circus Propaganda
Speaking of diversity... Carousel was the very first song by Circus Propaganda. As I understand it, Circus Propaganda are no longer active as a group, but I believe all of the members are making music in various other combinations - most of which we have or will feature on Ear to the Ground. From Botany.
"Kissing in the Dark" by Eight O'Five Jive
Nashville's favorite swingers... wait... let me rephrase. Nashville's favorite Swing/Jump Blues/etc. band - Eight O'Five Jive are up next with a public service announcement in the form of a cover of a Memphis Minnie classic. From Too Many Men.
"Lonely Town, Lonely Street" by Bill Withers
Sometimes... sometimes... you just got to hear some Bill Withers... The lead track from Withers' second album, Still Bill - which was the album that included "Lean on Me".
"Play a Train Song" by Todd Snider
From the classic album, East Nashville Skyline (which was co-produced by Will Kimbrough by the way) comes this song, which I got to hear Todd Snider sing last week at The 5 Spot. I tend to thing Todd Snider is a very big part of why East Nashville music is what it is...
"Anna" by Will Butler
This is the second track and one of two singles from Policy the solo debut album by Will Butler who is in some band called Arcade Fire.
"Her Love" by Black Vincent
Another awesome song from the Black Vincent album, Teardrop Deluxe which was recorded here in Nashville with the production team behind Diamond Rugs, T. Hardy Morris and Deer Tick (Justin Collins and Adam Landry).
"Tell Her You Belong To Me" by Beth Hart
From Better Than Home - the latest album by L.A. Based songwriter and powerhouse vocalist Beth Hart.
