AWOPBAMBOOM Volume 84 – Select Songs for Fellow Travelers

***

From “Well Done” to “Cuts You Up,” here’s what’s orbiting our musical universe this week.

***

IDLES – “Well Done (Live)”

NewsWhistle’s Gator McKlusky is talking up this Bristol band who burned up SXSW!

***

Fallow Land – “Faux”

Some may call this sexy, humid song “indie.” Others may call it “experimental.” But we’d add “jazz fusion” to the mix. So here’s a sultry experimental-indie-jazz-fusion song for all to enjoy. Stanley Jordan would be proud!

Stanley Jordan – “Eleanor Rigby Live from NAMM 2015”

For those of you who asked, “Who’s Stanley Jordan?”

***

Joseph of Mercury – “Find You Inside”

Fun 80s sound – like a-ha (“Hunting High and Low”) meets Peter Murphy (“Cuts You Up”).

***

Peter Murphy – “Cuts You Up”

Talking about Peter Murphy… How good is this one from 1989?

***

Tancred – “Birthday Candles”

An airy bit of indie with the nice refrain of “Who’s gonna tuck you in tonight?”

***

STRFKR – “Open Your Eyes”

After listening to Tancred on Soundcloud, this song popped up. The intro reminded us of “Brilliant Mind” by Furniture… Thought you may want to take a listen.

Furniture – “Brilliant Mind”

Part of  the”Some Kind Of Wonderful” soundtrack. If you haven’t listened to the soundtrack or watched the film, please do so now!

***

Nada Surf – “Meow Meow Lullaby”

A rock n’ roll band writes a children’s tune. Meow Yes?

***

Cindy Wilson – “Ballistic”

If you’re in the southern part of America this June or July, try to catch a live show fronted by the B-52’s Cindy Wilson. In the meantime, a new track for you.

***

Goodbye June – “Daisy”

The video tries too hard, but give the song a listen and tell us you can’t hear it already playing at your summer BBQ. Enjoy!
