Thundercrack playlist #11. Size is 63mb. Enjoy. Download it from here
1. CSS - Rat Is Dead (Rage)
First off this week, a new song from CSS from their next album due out this summer. Took me a while to get into the last album, I like this track so looking forward to the album.
2. Filligar - All The Same
Young, highly prolific guys from Chicago, they've already released a few albums which are worth checking out. Still playing in around Chicago at the moment, these guys are good.
3. My Morning Jacket - Thank You Too (Live)
Not going to post the official track off the new album (it'll be out soon) so here's the band performing one of the songs at SXSW this year. Great song.
4. Blood Meridian - Let It Come Down (Live)
One of my favourite bands, this is a track off their album 'Kick Up The Dust'. They've got four great releases already, all available to order off their website.
5. Sonics Rendezvous Band - City Slang
Band from the 60s/70s led by Fred Sonic Smith, formerly of MC5 and Scott Morgan. Lot of controversy over the recent release of a 6-disc set of the band, check out the sites yourself and see if you can figure it out because I haven't got a clue. The music is fantastic though so who cares.
6. Venus Infers - In This City
These guys are going to be big. Very big. They've got some great songs which you can stream on their MySpace and they've got some cds available through their site and iTunes. Keep an eye on this band, I think you'll start to hear more about them soon.
7. Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers - 4th Of July
One of the hardest working bands around, these guys are building up a fan base in the best way: by playing concerts non-stop. Stephen's released a few solo albums as well as his excellent work with The Sixers. Great song.
8. Tegan and Sara - The Con (Live)
One of the best songs of last year, this is taken from their performance at Coachella just a few days ago.
9. Coldplay - Violet Hill
Made available by the band yesterday, Violet Hill is the first thing to be heard from their new album. Not sure if it's going to change people's minds about Coldplay if they don't like them, but I think it's a good song and I'll be very interested in hearing the album when it comes out.
10. No Kids - The Beaches Are Closed
Released an album 'Come Into My House' a couple of months back, all I've heard is this song which I think is good. I'm going to see them in a couple of weeks so will have more to say about them after that.
11. Micah P. Hinson - Patience
Saw him live this week (review here) so here's a song 'patience' by Micah. I've heard this is a killer live and listening to the studio version it's easy to hear why. Very talented, check out his records on his site.
12. Lo Fine - #37
Just released 'Not For Us Two' which #37 is on. One of my favourite songs this week, Kevin O'Rourke has a really great voice. Couple of others album dating back a few years available on the site too.
13. The Raconteurs - Many Shades Of Black (Live)
The first song to strike me off 'Consolers Of The Lonely' this is taken from their Coachella performance a few days ago. Great live band.
14. A House - I'll Always Be Grateful
A great Irish band of the 80s/90s they broke up in 1997 although singer Dave Couse continues to perform solo and with his band Dave Couse & The Impossible.
