AWOPBAMBOOM Volume 78 – Select Songs for Fellow Travelers

***

From Suicide Commandos to Me And That Man, here’s what’s orbiting our musical universe this week.

***

Goon – “Cammie At Night”

Stow the flannel. This is grunge-like, but there’s more to it… like 60s surfers palled around with Guided By Voices and recorded their jam on modern machinery to keep things crisp and new.

***

Flagship – “Midnight”

New romance twirlings with Springsteen-Mellencamp flourishes. Run an 80s movie, watch the happy ending, cue this track. Then take that fist and emphatically pump it towards the sky.

XYLØ – “I Still Wait For You”

Monster tune by a brother sister duo.

***

Me And That Man – “Cross My Heart And Hope To Die”

When not spearheading the metal band Behemoth, Nergal Frontman is stringing up his six-string like a vengeful cowboy. Giddy-up, lovers of the moody and the acoustic!

***

The Suicide Commandos – “Boogie’s Coldest Acre”

Their debut album was 39 years ago. The follow-up album is coming out in May. That’s pretty punk! Here’s the first cut off the new LP. Enjoy!
