Okay - first off - I have sort of put the Ear to the Ground Events back up. It is a work in progress. I need to do some formatting and stuff. I will continue to work on it and hopefully improve it.
Let us jump directly into the shuffle... it's another good one....
"Monkey Suit" by Human Radio
Human Radio just completed a successful crowd funding campaign which means new music is on the horizon! Great news! This one goes back to their self-titled first and only studio album so far, and it is the perfect song for a commute to work....
"Chasing Vapor Trails (His Turn to Cry)" by Syd Straw
Syd Straw has one of the most amazing voices in music. Surprise remains on my list of favorite albums, and this song... this song!
"The Three Bells" by Alison Karuss
A gorgeous rendition of a song popularized by The Browns in 1959. The song lyrics cover three stages (birth, marriage, and death) in the life of Little Jimmy Brown. Coincidently, the late Jim Ed Brown was the male lead singer of The Browns and shares a name with the character in the song.
"You Better Move On" by Amy Black
One more from the Muscle Shoals Sessions. This is a cover of a song written and first recorded by Arthur Alexander. The song has previously been covered by artists ranging from the Rolling Stones to Johnny Paycheck and George Jones to Mink Deville. I really like Amy Black's version included here.
"After You've Gone" by Wes Montgomery
A song by the late great Jazz Guitarist - which I grabbed from Aquarium Drunkard.
"Under Their Laws" by Liberty's Exiles
Liberty's Exiles are a Progressive duo who formed in 2013. Our first listen comes from their forthcoming album which will be called The Price of Immortality and is due out September 4.
"Ebeneezer/Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss" by David Schnaufer
Our second instrumental in the shuffle - the late Dulcimer master David Schnaufer is back with more of his wonderful music.
"It's Our Time" by Blackfoot Gyspsies
We close out the day with an older song from one of my favorite Nashville bands. This goes back to their EP called Dandee Cheeseball (2011). They are now signed to Plowboy Records, and you can find their latest album, Handle It, everywhere. Go see them live!
