GoodSongs: A Fine Alt. Country Mix

gslogo

As a part of my online simplification and consolidation project (more on this later), I am moving our music recommendation blog, GoodSongs.Com, to the Music category here at Newsome.Org.  We’ll post a GoodSongs music recommendation list no more than once a week, where we’ll feature a wide variety of off-the-beaten path music.

Here’s the first installment of our hand-picked music recommendations.

Purchase links are at Amazon unless otherwise noted.

Steve Pride – Big Time.  Steve Pride and His Blood Kin do the excellent Welcome to the Big Time off of the also excellent Pride on Pride.

Star Room Boys – Angel Flying too Close to the Ground.  Maybe the best country band ever doing a live one (via the highly recommended music blog, Southern Shelter).

South Filthy – Sandra Lynn’s Blues.  One of my favorite songs, from You Can Name It Yo’ Mammy If You Wanna.

image

Gosdin Brothers – There Must Be Someone I Can Turn To.  The excellent Gosdin Brothers, from the best country rock record you’ve probably never heard.  With the great Clarence White on guitar.

image

Four Year Bender – New Orleans LamentFour Year Bender does an excellent song about the Crescent City.

image

Sixty Acres – Saint Rose.  Great song from their excellent record, Good Ethel.

image

Okra All-Stars – She’s Taken All My Toys Away.  From from their excellent self-titled 1999 album.

image

The Buckets – Postmarked Virginia.  My buddy Ray’s band.  Buy their records at CD Baby

image

Mount Pilot – 3 Years in October.  Off of the great but hard to find Help Wanted Love Needed Caretaker album.

image

The Figments – Feel the Fields, off of All the Gone Days.  Available at CD Baby.  This is as good as a song can get.

These are great records, by some fantastic bands.  Go buy these records and support people who make this great music.

Artist Notice: I am a musician and songwriter.  I do these posts to draw attention to great music in the hopes that our readers will buy these records and allow these artists to continue making great music.  If you don’t want us to feature your music, let us know and we’ll take the song file down immediately.  On the other hand, if you are an artist who does the sort of music we feature, let us know.  We’re always looking for new artists to feature.
