    Some roving on YouTube often leads to good music.

    I've started a formula-based music playlist endeavor I call The 925.

    It's the area code in the Bay Area where I grew up, it also has the double-meaning of Nine-to-Five, the work-week grind.

    Nine songs from up-and-coming or just emerging acts.
    Two specialty songs (covers, acoustic, live, etc)
    Five songs that are well known or from well-known acts.

    Each playlist has a central theme and is constructed so it flows well from song to song.

    First playlist was synth-heavy.
    Second playlist had lots of good jammers.
    Third playlist that just came out today was very singer-songwriter heavy.

    Here's the Spotify URL for the most recent one if that's easiest. On the actual blog it is hosted on I include a few sentences about each song.

    http://open.spotify.com/user/markeorteg ... YEIGQ5voml

    Check it out if you're interested.

    Wasn't sure if this had been posted anywhere else (it's been a long week) but Wilco is offering a free download of their new album for a limited time at http://wilcoworld.net/. I haven't listened yet, I just downloaded it myself.

    Wasn't sure which thread to put this in . . . but, I saw this posted online the other day. Damn, I wish I had been at this show. Right before my 6th birthday. Would've been a great present, Mom! Thanks for the bullshit socks and cowboy hat.

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I think I've literally watched every video he's put out. I binged watched them within 3 days of finding his channel.

    I especially like his longer "travel vlogs" as well... like this one:

    I saw the Milk Carton Kids a couple weeks ago. They were great, and killed the encore song, which was a cover of "Wish You Were Here." But, this dude I never heard of, Logan Ledger, opened for them. He came out alone, just him and his guitar. Killed. Make a note of that dude's name, because he is about to be huge. His voice is incredible, and he writes / sings these heavy, Hank Williams-esque tunes. I've seen several nobody's in dive bars come out and play some typical cover crap, and they'll throw in an old Hank song, or even a slow Chris Stapleton ballad, and they suck. Nobody wants to hear you butcher those songs, because you don't have the talent. Ledger does. Good stuff. It seems there's not a lot on YouTube right now that I can link, because they're pulling it - I think he just signed with Rounder or somebody.

    Also, so Tyler Boone this past weekend. He was pretty good - kind of a different mash-up of Americana and bluesy rock. Might keep an eye on him, too.

    ETA: That's Kristina Murray in the video with Logan Ledger. She sounds a lot like early Sara Evans. She's been around for a few years. I am assuming the only reason she hasn't made it huge, is because she's refused to sell out and make radio crap country. He stuff is much grittier and folksy, but she could easily be a big star.

    I've got a Spotify Playlist that I'm trying to expand. It's songs that are fairly well-known and have great opening chords / riff / drum beat, so that when you hear it, you're like, "oh, great song." They can be recent or classics, but I don't want ones that just you know, or a band you're trying to introduce everybody to, but trying to think of ones where just about everybody in the room / van would know it right away. Trying to stay away from stadium anthems or super, super popular like Seven Nation Army, Satisfaction, Money For Nothing, Smoke On The Water, Sweet Child o Mine, etc. I also tried avoid ones that have great intros, but then, you tire of listening to the rest of the song - like Clocks (Coldplay), Bittersweet Symphony (Verve) or Should I Stay Or Should I Go (Clash). I need some more recent ones.
    This is what I have so far:

    For Those About To Rock
    Dr. Feelgood
    When The Levee Breaks
    Interstate Love Song
    Barracuda
    When Doves Cry
    Hot For Teacher
    Enter Sandman
    Bullet The Blue Sky
    Crosstown Traffic
    Kid Gloves
    La Villa Strangiato
    Papa Was A Rolling Stone
    Breaking The Law
    Lose Yourself
    So. Central Rain
    Finest Worksong
    Been Caught Stealing
    Little Wing
    Even Flow
    I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor
    Whipping Post
    Guerrilla Radio
    Like A Stone
    Baby Got Back
    Blue on Black
    Pressure and Time
    Empire State of Mind
    Monkey Wrench
    Everlong
    Hard To Handle
    Down With The Sickness
    Toxicity
    Under Pressure

    Suggestions?
