Welcome to Earth: Podcast #123

from strange cargo

 

After a 5 3/4 months hiatus, The Shady Groove is happy to bring you an all new podcast. Chock-full of new classics and old timeless musical gems, this self-indulgent playlist that I call a radio show will be sure to please. So feel free to share with friends, listen to while your making dinner, or rock out to whilst driving. Hopefully you’ll like some of the music enough to buy the track or album or maybe even the vinyl for all you audiophiles out there. Maybe you’ll even look up the artist and check out some of their other stuff. Because that is what it’s all about. Music is about finding what moves you. And we should always and consistently be searching, listening to something you never thought you would…I encourage you to listen to the full album, listen to the b-sides and rarities. That’s where you find the gold;┬áthe realness..

The following is a list of the tastefully curated audio tracks that were played on this podcast:

Sturgill Simpson – Welcome to Earth (Pollywog) ++ Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings – We Get Along ++ St. Paul & The Broken Bones – All I Ever Wonder ++ Chuck Berry – Roll Over Beethoven ++ The Rolling Stones – Let It Bleed ++ The Flying Burrito Brothers – Christine’s Tune ++ The Sheepdogs – Plastic Man ++ Cake – Arco Arena ++ Vampire Weekend – Oxford Comma ++ Weezer – El Scorcho ++ Tedeschi Trucks Band – Anyhow ++ Wilco – Normal American Kids ++ Mark Knopfler – Skydiver ++ Quiet Life – Live Wire ++ Dawes – When the Tequila Runs Out ++ Jimmy Smith – Whiskey and Blood ++

Sunset at fest

 

It’s been two weeks since the last notes of Los Lobos filled the air up at The Old Poole Farm in Schwenksville, and I’m still thinking about it. The 55th anniversary of the Philadelphia Folk Fest, the longest continuously running folk fest in North America, has come and gone; but to the Fest faithful, it’s memories live on for years….Or until the next Fest hits in mid August 2017. This year brought some amazing musicians and collaborations together for a spectacular 3 days of audible pleasure. From Del and Dawg to The Sheepdogs to Anderson East and the Lone Bellow covering Mariah Carey’s ‘Baby’, it was a great time had by all involved. So for this weeks’ Shady Groove Podcast, I’ve put together a great set of music from Folk Fest artists past and present…and probably future. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

Mason Porter – Frankie and Johnny ++ Chris Kasper – Old Smoke ++ Spirit Family Reunion – I Am Following The Sound ++ Old Crow Medicine Show – Sweet Amarillo ++ Billy Bragg and Wilco – California Stars ++ The Sheepdogs – Take A Trip ++ Quiet Life – Lost in the Light ++ Sturgill Simpson – Sea Stories ++ Low Cut Connie – Danny’s Outta Money ++ Del & Dawg – East Virginia Blues (Live) ++ Bat – Brooklyn Song ++ David Myles – When It Comes My Turn ++ River Whyless – Miles of Skyline ++ Session Americana – Beer Town ++ Paul Simon – Graceland ++ Darlingside – Go Back ++ Anderson East – Satisfy Me ++ The Wood Brothers – Singin’ To Strangers ++ El Caribefunk – San Antonio ++ The Derek Trucks Band – Joyful Noise ++ Carolina Chocolate Drops – Hit ‘Em Up Style ++ Los Lobos – Chuco’s Cumbia
