As a Curator here at Musicto, we not only get to chat and brainstorm with the rest of our team, whom are dotted around the globe but were lucky enough to meet and cross paths with some brilliant musicians.
This week Jeff Przech and I actually bumped into each other on Twitter and I got a chance to shoot him a few questions about his work.
Calling long time Waits fans, first time callers and hitchhikers.
Apologies in advance for those of you expecting "Going Out West"....sorry but I'm a b side sort of guy!
So here's another ditty from the Eagles of Death Metal.
Just what the doctor ordered to get you singing along on the road to nowhere.
I found myself seeking out this track yesterday with the passing of a friend. I honestly don't know what to say or feel this week, I'm just numb..."
I haven't purely been a meat eater (roots listener) for ever but in recent times I've been easily lead into the realm of sampling, beats and loops.
So stoked to bring you another Aussie gem, back to back with last weeks "Cruel Sea".
Paul Kelly would have to be one of the most respected Singer/Songwriters in Australia. Every couple of years he'll pop up in an intimate Theatre or home town show, whether he's solo or with his band you can be guaranteed the night of your life.
This week I've pulled an oldie from the Australian archives for you. It's a track that's a must have item in the Burn a Million Miles travel bag and furthermore, I'm sure if you did a Google search it would also be written somewhere into a Travelers Almanac.. 'Don't leave home without it'
After a long winded following of the likes of Husker Du, Black Flag and the Underbelly Punk scene, Steve Earle was the man that introduced me to Folk, Bluegrass and all things Americana in the mid 90s...
Firstly, trying to select A Wayne The Train track for a playlist called "Burn a Million Miles" is a damn hard thing to decide on, least of all, an Intro.
Here's another gem from the Boozoo Guys. I can just picture myself turning some miles out in the Desert on dusk or heading for a surf at the crack of sparrows. Again and again, these guys assemble some uber cool shit.
If you don't know Junior Brown, well here's your introduction. Armed with his Git Steel Junior does it for me with his cool blend of Country / Surf Guitar .
It's not only the music and Grace's sexy southern drawl that made me add this track but her tale of wanting to skip town.
We all love Iggy Pop, well I do.
This track takes me back to some amazing road trips that I had with a close mate, who tragically passed a few years ago.
We recently saw Nick Cave at the University in Brisbane, Australia. He plays a big part of my music diet and just had to share this one in particular.
Being a Big Americana and Rockabilly fan I had to throw a fun track like this into the playlist.
It makes me want to grab my Gal and Crew, load up the Cadillac, fill it full of booze and hit the open roads.
I've been getting into these guys over the last few years, Howl would have to be a favorite of mine and this track is one of the standouts for me.
I'm a big Tony Joe fan andhappened to stumble across this track. I have recently got a taste for Dub and Loops and I fell in love with this from the first time I heard it.
Although this track wasn't on the 1984 Repo Man soundtrack staring Harry Dean Stanton, and Emilio Estevez, the opening guitar takes me back to the late night raids and cruising the streets in search of the highly sort after Chevy Malibu.
I just dig this track big time. I know old school fans of EODM didn't rate the album highly compared to their previous albums but it just kicks arse for me.
To start our road trip, I have this cool track by Jonah. Such a chilled out track to blow your digs and leave the city limits and head on the road to nowhere.
