Nuggets 225 – Morning Voices 10

Nuggets 225 - Morning Voices It’s a grey Anzac day and I am spinning some quiet tunes. I have neglected to post my recent mixes. My iPod tells me that I am approaching my 260th mix but you wouldn’t know this from reading my blog. So, Nuggets 225 Morning Voices.

, , , , , , , and have featured on past posts, leaving 10 new artists in this mix; Bosque Brown, Brandi Carlile, Dark Dark Dark, Dee Dee Warwick, Dirty Gold, Emma Pollock, Ex Vivian, Laura K, Samantha Crain and The Be Good Tanyas. All good.

Have a listen. Nearly all the tracks are up and the playable version of this playlist follows hosted by my friends at Grooveshark. I am a bit worried about Grooveshark, the company isn’t thriving and the lawyers are circling. It would be a bugger to recreate my playlists using another service.

Bosque Brown features the breathy vocals of  Mara Lee Miller. You can almost hear the tumble weeks blowing past as she sings. Bliss

 

Bosque Brown - Baby 

Brandi Carlile is country and there’s no denying that. Like Dolly in a good way… According to her bio she was brought up on Patsy Cline and Elton John. Strangely, so was I.

Brandi Carlile - Full Performance (Live on KEXP)

Brandi Carlile - Bear creek

Dark Dark Dark is an American folk band. This is a live track from a Daytrotter session.

#277 Dark Dark Dark - Daydreaming (Acoustic Session)

Dark Dark Dark - Wild Go 

 

Dee Dee Warwick had the misfortune to be Dionne’s little sister. She didn’t get the love or the hits, but her grungy (original) version of "You’re No Good” is a winner.

Dirty Gold is a band formed by some friends from High School. Sunny afro pop from San Diego. This track is from an EP with TV Girl where each band covers the other’s songs. Cute.

The Be Good Tanyas is Canadian folk band. I like their lyrics. Their compilation disk, A Collection, is worth chasing down. They do a mean rendition of Townes Van Zandt’s Waiting Around to Die

Light enough to travel


Promise me we won’t go into the nightclub
I feel so fucked up when I’m in there
Can’t tell the bouncers from the customers
And I don’t know which ones I prefer

Promise me we won’t go into the nightclub
I really think that it’s obscene
What kind of people go to meet people
Someplace they can’t be heard or seen

Laura K – Aussie by way of London with a Real Estate cover. Lots of her music on Bandcamp.

What I am watching tonight…

Back in the USA its last night, and the Smith Westerns are about to play the Coachella music festival in Indio California. At the moment New Order are on stage playing Atmosphere as an encore. Live on Youtube of course.

Gigging without leaving your lounge, it is more enjoyable than you might think.

All apropos because I am thinking of going to a gig on Thursday. Some of the Christchurch band, T54, have morphed into

It’s a groovy jangly sound and someone from the band (Joe??) even messaged me on Facebook to invite me along. Russell Brown and I have both sent them some hard earned cash. I am keen to make the effort on a school night but for one thing, they are playing the Whammy Bar for christsakes. This is a subterranean dive on K road. Terrible acoustics, average beer and the bands tend to play late. There are three bands on the bill. Can I be arsed?
