bognor - don't go there

pleasant bedroom pop out of portland in the form of 'don't go there' by bognor. this thrumming track is part of the soundtrack to a graphic novel called 'picket line'. the track art is a scene from the graphic novel.
 

this track is a $1 download, but you can grab two other albums worth of free downloads at bognor's bandcamp. also, check out the visual output of the man behind bognor at selfishsteam.  the modern folk music of america.

the cinnamon band - what a lack of love has done (nick lowe cover)

here is the next installment in the cinnamon band's series of monthly covers. a classy choice of tune by one of my favorite musician/producers, nick lowe.



this has been a pretty cool idea they have, and i applaud the effort it takes to get a song out a month, especially for perfectionists like these guys. i think for the first three years of their existence they only had like five songs, now they are pumping out one a month. nice work dudes. the modern folk music of america.

dr. muskrat and his mississippi mudsteppers - i got mine (video)

here is video featuring some hot jug band music in a cold location - an ice shanty, as this song is being performed on a frozen lake. only in the northern midwest! traditional style stuff in the vein of the mississippi shieksthe memphis jug band or something you would hear on the ruckus juice and chitlins compilation...courtesy of kalamity cat, who is a member of the band and has been featured on this blog before and was in fact one of my first contributors.



apparently, they were the second runner up at the 30th annual battle of the jug bands in minneapolis. sorry for all those educational links up there. the modern folk music of america.
