Stranded In The Desert

Picture the scene: you’ve burnt a million miles on your journey to escape reality. You’re out in the boonies, as far from other humans as you can possibly be.

Featuring artists like: All Them Witches • Black Rebel Motorcycle Club • Eagles Of Death Metal • IDLES • The Kills • Band Of Skulls • Meat Puppets • Mastodon

Magdalena’s Song – First the Winter

I’ve noticed a disturbing trend on the Grieve to list of late where – for one reason or another – the tracks are becoming a little more optimistic – a little more hopeful. And while yes – there are times when that’s appropriate – it’s the sadness of a track that we’re drawn to – the pure melancholy of a love remembered or a life cut short – or – as with this week’s track – both!..

Show On The Road – Tom Freund

Are we doomed?

Is this how it’s going to be?

Forever?

Damn I hope not…

Experimental Mice – First the Winter

Do you have hope?

To Love – Jon Worthy & The Bends

I’ve been thinking a lot about Music to Grieve To and and about what kind of playlist I want it to be. The idea is solid – both for the audience – in that listening to sad music is good for you – and for artists because hell, if you can’t write a sad song – then – maybe this game isn’t for you!..

Chick Habit – The Hillbilly Moon Explosion

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.

Battle Mountain – Ben Flocks

I was listening to the amazing In A Silent Way from Miles Davis (which will be featured on this playlist soon) and was thinking about the whole instrumental horn, jazz, blues, thing and then Battle Mountain appeared in my Inbox.
