Shinjak’s Listening Lounge

Once again, it’s time to clean out my backlog of songs that I liked but don’t really have time to do a full post about.  These songs have absolutely nothing to do with summertime, so those looking for ”the” soundtrack for summer 2008 need look elsewhere.  Those looking to curb their appetite for a hip-hopping, honky tonking good time, please see below.  For everyone else, enjoy!

Oh yeah, alot of these songs came from payplay.fm whose “fresh tracks” rss feed has apparently went the way of the dodo.  So now I’m having to listen to other music blogs (gasp!) to hear some new tunes.

The Dirty Guv’nahs – Get Together

Mello Mahem – Possible

This one keeps creeping to the top of my playlist.

Heybale – Honky Tonk Mood

Charlie & The Welfare – Cross The Line

Dry Land Fish – Carla

A really catchy tune that will have you reminiscing about that girlfriend.

Dylan Kight – Arcadia

Lots of good stuff out there from this talented guy.

Emily White – River of Forgetfulness

Enemies Of The Secret Hideout – Dating For Dummies

L.L. Cooper – Harvey Keitel

Marsupial – The Chameleon

Up and coming NC jamband whose new album is worth a closer listen.

Mat. D – Midway Babylon

Matt Mackey – End Of July (Studio Cut)

Mohawk Lodge – The Heart Of Lovers

Caught Up – Inside Out

Micah Hinson And The Red Empire Orchestra – When We Embraced

This guy has been a music blog darling as of late, and he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

Aesop Rock – None Shall Pass (remix)

What? This guys been kickin ass for years?  Apparently I’ve been living under a rock somewhere.

    This mix looks awesome, but none of the links appear to work. Do you still have the zip or anything?
