The Greenhornes – Show Me Love

Similar lo-fi sound to yesterday’s song, but rock instead of folk. Sounds like a modern, more bluesy J. Geils band.

Gap Dream – Fantastic Sam

The Habibi song I just posted is followed by a Gap Dream song, which taught me that Gap Dream is on the same label. Who knew?! Probably a bunch of people. But that’s a great excuse to post this Gap Dream song I’ve been wanting to post for a while, and make up for yesterday’s […]

Habibi – I Got The Moves

What luck to find a new rock song that can follow Wreckless Eric. Even better that it’s an all woman band.

Speedy Ortiz – No Below

Today’s song comes courtesy of Luke O’Neil. It’s local, like yesterday’s song, it’s good, and it’s even better loud. Reminds me a little bit of Elliott Smith.

The Peach Kings – Lonely

A fittingly melancholy and beautiful song for what became a sad day for the cycling community when Amy Dombroski, a 26-year-old pro bike racer, died after being hit by a truck while training in Belgium. Read her story here, and be careful when you drive.

The Detroit Cobras – Midnight Blues

I love this band. The grungy blues song toes a line between Etta James, electric Muddy Waters, and the Misfits. Or at least that’s what I hear.

Thee Shams – Scream My Name

I could have gone in one of two directions after yesterday’s song, which has bits of Danzig-like metal and Black Keys-like blues in it, I think. I know blues better, so I give you some gritty garage rock blues from Thee Shams (spelled wrong in the link).
