3:09p.m. Hit Shuffle
"Vincent Black Lightning" (Richard Thompson cover) by Fendrick and Peck
My friends, Fendrick and Peck have a brand knew album called Lucky Penny. This is the last song and only cover on the album. One of my all-time favorite songs, and I really dig this cover.
"Too Much Out of Line" by The Colored Parade
Next up, another friend - Andrew Adkins with his band, The Colored Parade with a song from their album ...And the Walls of the City Will Shake"Medicine Bow" by The Waterboys
This is the Sea is 30 years old this year. I hope I still sound so good when I get to be 30....."Gingerbread Boy" by Miles Davis
From the Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4... a Jimmy Heath composition (I think). Nothing wrong with Miles Davis on a lazy Saturday afternoon at the end of Summer. Or any other time for that matter..."Eastwood Outlaw" by Crazy Aces
Crazy Aces are an instrumental rock band from Nashville. I experienced them live for the first time last night, and I had to have this albun. Awesome stuff!
"Champions of Red Wine" by The New Pornographers
A track from the latest album by The New Pornographers, Brill Bruisers, which was released about a year ago... a pretty cool song. I like it. I could listen to Neko Case sing all day long.
"Song About My Friends" by Atticus Floyd
From We'll All Come Down... a cute little songs about friends who are monsters who died.
It is now 3:44p.m. and we move on...
"Royal Wedding" by Kronos Quartet
From a Sampler of the Big Ears Music Festival which held in Knoxville, Tennessee earlier in the year. Kronos Quartet class up the shuffle in the coolest way possible...
"Lost in a Crowd" by Fantastic Negrito
My first time hearing this song and my first exposure to the artist. Man, I dig this. I want to hear more! The album is listed as "Studio Paradiso 4/20/2015" on my device. Will find out more right away.
"Only Love Can Break Your Heart" by Charlie Whitten
A nice Neil Young cover... This comes from a Charlie Whitten Sampler via Noisetrade.
And we will go out with this one:
"21 Years" by James Tomberlin
Our first listen to the new record from James Tomberlin. One of my favorite writers. He recently left Nashville to pursue a law degree in Virginia, but before he left he recorded Still Life with Orange. Produced by Josh Morris and featuring Jon Latham, Cameron Carrus, and John Gentile. I love this song!
4:05p.m. Hope you enjoyed!
