Rock and Roll Tribe

A Global Army of Veteran Rockers

Once again, I've put together my annual Yuletide Mix of interesting artists and songs, most (but not all) with a psych pop or power pop vibe. The 2012 edition features new bands such as The Sufis (great new psych pop from Nashville, much like The Paperhead) and The UFO Club (Christian Bland of the Black Angels and Lee Blackwell of The Night Beats) along with several long-time favorites. The "flow" is crucial in my opinion, so here they are, in an order that hopefully makes for an enjoyable listening experience:

1. The Well Wishers “Free? No” (from Dreaming of the West Coast)
2. Paul Weller “Around The Lake” (from Sonik Kicks)
3. Guided by Voices “Tyson’s High School” (from Class Clown Spots a UFO)
4. Jack White “Missing Pieces” (from Blunderbuss)
5. La Sera “Please Be My Third Eye” (from Sees the Light)
6. JEFF The Brotherhood “Mystic Portal II” (from Hypnotic Nights)
7. Sleigh Bells “Crush” (from Reign of Terror)
8. Secret Colours “Blackbird (Only One)” (from a free Austin Psych Fest Bandcamp download)
9. Moon Duo “Circles” (from Circles)
10. The Men “Open Your Heart” (from Open Your Heart)
11. The Spyrals “Lonely Eyes” (from The Spyrals)
12. Neil Young & Crazy Horse “Psychedelic Pill” (from Psychedelic Pill)
13. Baby Woodrose “Bullshit Detector” (from Third Eye Surgery)
14. The UFO Club “July” (from The UFO Club)
15. Ty Segall “Thank God For Sinners” (from Twins)
16. The Sufis “Where Did She Go?” (from The Sufis)
17. Woods “Is It Honest?” (from Bend Beyond)
18. Beaulieu Porch “Laminations Are Loaded” (from Beaulieu Porch)
19. The Soundtrack Of Our Lives “Busy Land” (from Throw It To The Universe)
20. MMOSS “Okay” (from Only Children)
21. Robert Pollard “No Tools” (from Mouseman Cloud)
22. The Apricot “Too Far Behind” (from A Forestful of Threes, 2011, Norway - still hasn't made it here)
23. The Galileo 7 “Not Gonna Miss You” (from Staring At The Sound)
24. Kontiki Suite “See You In The Morning” (from On Sunset Lake)

Got my hard copy in the mail, thanks Stu!

My pleasure - looking forward to your list as well.

Currently listening to the 2012 self-titled Sic Alps album as I type and thinking I should've included one of their groovy psych tunes on the Mix, but you just can't do everything in 79 minutes...

Johnny Cash - The Sun Years -1954-1958

When the barriers that separated pop and country music began to crumble in the wake of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash was one the first young country artists to take a place in the pop charts. Ironically, as hillbilly music slicked itself up in search of a wider market. Johnny Cash, broke through with a sound that was so sparse and under -produced that it must have seemed anachronistic even to the more conservative elements of the Nashville establishments. Johnny Cash was born in the remote rural…See More
