Here we are the last Friday in June, and the voting has picked up. Skeletons in the Piano have made a huge push and taken over second place. They are within possible striking distance of Killing Kuddles who has lead since the beginning of the polling period. The next 38 hours or so will decide the whole thing. Remember even if you have voted, you can vote again - here.
For our last shuffle of the month, I have loaded roughly an equal amount of songs for each of the top three (poll results as of this morning) Band of the Month nominees. Strangely enough, the shuffle came up in order from 3rd place to 1st*
*Okay I shuffled three or four times to get it to come out this way.
To the shuffle:
The more I hear of the Living with Scars album, the more impressed I am by Jo Wymer and he band. On Come on Baby, Jo shows off her vocal chops with a passionate pleading blues number that stands alongside some of the best female blues vocalists of all time.
Upstate New Yorkers, Skeletons in the Piano are up next with the lead off track from their Stranger On A Damned Staircase album. That Old Hound Dog came up earlier in the month, but it's worth repeating here. A damned fine blues based bit of indie rock from a highly original band.
And finally, we have another stand-out track from Killing Kuddles - the folksy, grungy, punk troubadour from Atlanta, Georgia. Today's song is a nifty, rocking tune called Runaway Queen.
couldn't locate a video for Runaway Queen, so here's Too Crazy.
