Friday Mix Tape: We’re Coming To Americana

Looks like lala – thanks to Ryan’s help – has potentially saved Friday Mix Tape from the HT Column Graveyard. Being the resident roots/Americana enthusiast around these parts, I’m offering up a batch of  boozy laments and rockin’, country-infused romps from the last few years for your listening pleasure. Head over to lala and sign up (they use Facebook Connect so it’s rather pain free) so you can listen to these six tasty tunes.


We kick things off with La La La, the lead track from Deer Tick’s More Fuel For The Fire – EP. Earlier this week, the band announced that they will be releasing their third full-length album entitled The Black Dirt Session on June 8. From there, we’ve got Phosphorescent with I’ve Got To Get Drunk from the album I’ve easily listened to at least twice or three times a week the last couple of months, their collection of Willie Nelson covers To Willie. Then, we’ve got HT faves The Felice Brothers with arguably my new favorite by them White Limo, from their Mix Tape album – which is a collection of tracks recorded during the Yonder Is The Clock sessions.

Next up is the gospel and sun-baked harmonies of the Seattle-based act The Moondoggies with Black Shoe from their fantastic 2008 release Don’t Be A Stranger. We seem to be giving Jackie Greene a lot of love lately, so let’s continue with that trend. Here’s Phil Lesh’s other man-crush with Shaken from Giving Up the Ghost. Finally, we close things out with Iron & Wine’s sublime cover of The Flaming Lips Waiting For Superman from his B-Sides and rarities record Around The Well.
