I will warn you the first song in today’s playlist is filled with NOT SAFE FOR WORK language. Play cautiously. That’s appropriate for today as yesterday came word that schools in Indianapolis will be required to go virtual again by the end of the month. More about that next week, though. On to the music…
“JU$T” – Run the Jewels with Zach De La Rocha and Pharrell Williams
LOOK AT ALL THESE SLAVE MASTERS POSIN’ ON YOUR DOLLARS
“Play (On My Mind)” – The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness
Man, how about this song? As the days get colder and darker this adds a nice touch of light and brightness. Their band name, from a song by The Feelies, is a little much, though.
“Faith Healer” – Julien Baker
This song has a very Frightened Rabbit feel to it, at least musically. I completely approve.
“The Modern Leper” – Julien Baker
There is a connection. From last year’s Tiny Changes cover album of FR’s The Midnight Organ Fight.
“Valley” Kevin Morby
My favorite song off of his Sundowner album.
“The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” – Gordon Lightfoot
Forty-five years ago this week.
“She Sells Sanctuary” – The Cult
We need more ass-kicking rock ‘n’ roll music like this in the world today.
