Thundercrack Playlist #22

#22 this week. 11 songs totaling 52mb. Download it from here

1. For Against - Underestimate

This postpunk band have been around for a long time, with the recent album 'Shade Side Sunny Side' being their first studio offering since 2002. This track is taken from that album.

2. The Breakers -Don't Send Me No Flowers

Don't know anything about this band apart from they're from the 60s and that they play garage rock. This is a great song and one of their best known songs.

3. Kings Of Leon - Manhattan (Live)

New song from the Kings taken from a radio broadcast of their recent headlining slot at Glastonbury.

4. Southside Johnny & Little Steven - The Fever (Live)

This is taken from a radio show where these two as well as other musicians such as Soozie Tyrell and Bobby Bandiera played a whole bunch of covers (including 'Like A Virgin') and originals. Here's Southside singing the song with Springsteen.

5. Nils Lofgren - Long May You Run (Live)

Nils did a couple of songs on BBC Radio not too long ago and this is one of them. Apart from currently being on tour with Springsteen, Nils has a Neil Young covers album out at the moment which is well worth getting. Here's one of my favourite Nils songs

6. Mallory Graham - Queen Bee

I'll be honest, I know nothing about this song or the artist. I know it appeared on a Barbra Streisand album but that's about it. Great song though. Anybody with any info is welcome to let me know.

7. Albert Hammond Jr. - In My Room

New album from the Strokes guitarist is out now and this is off that album. Not going to win any awards for originality but he's excellent at what he does.

8. The Ettes - Marathon

From Los Angeles, they describe themselves as a punk/garage band. 'Marathon' is taken off their second full length release called 'Look At Life Again Soon'.

9. Sufjan Stevens - The One I Love (Live)

Cover of the classic REM song by Sufjan.

10. Ryan Auffenberg - Alright, Okay

Americana artist from San Francisco, this track is taken from his debut album 'Marigolds'.

11. Ben Kyle w/ Ryan Adams - The Dark (Live)

Featured Ben and his band Romantica last week and here's a live version of his song 'The Dark' from his support tour of Ryan Adams. Ryan guests on this track.
