Gather Your Shovels & Rope: Music Roundup


As I like to do from time to time, here’s a round-up of the music lately that’s tickling the ivories of my mind, no particular order:

1. “Evil” – Shovels & Rope

Try to listen to this one without tapping your foot. Just a kick-ass tune with some timely, folksy lyrics.

2. “After the Storm” – Shovels & Rope

Gorgeous, spell-binding duet that sucks me in.

3. “I Don’t Want To Change You” – Damien Rice

You knew my boy, Rice, was making it on here after releasing his first song in eight years. And it’s a nice blend of melancholy and soaring, yet somber (almost resigned) lyrics. It’s terrific.

4. “My Home is in the Delta” – Muddy Waters

This is the kinda music that gets me curling my lip and gets down under your skin. Good, old fashion soulful bluesy music.

5. “The Funeral” – Band of Horses

Kinda have a Coldplay flavor to me.


6. “Transatlanticism” – Death Cab for Cutie

Bonus 2.0:

7. “The Things That Don’t Move In the Night” – Edward Turner

Chorus in this one is addictive.
