Smith Westerns
Prior to their Live on King Street performance last friday, the Chicago-based Smith Westerns came through to record a Live from Studio M session. Needless to say, our staff here were more than impressed with the band's melodic tunes and overall mellow vibe. Take a listen to a cut off of their new album:

Artist: Smith Westerns
Hail From: Chicago, IL
Song: 3 A.M. Spiritual
Album: Soft Will
Sounds Like: Deerhunter, Girls

Lone Bellow

This week's Gabby's Pick is a song called Bleeding Out from a band out of Brooklyn called Lone Bellow.

Formed by old friends in the south, the band began as a songwriting project when Zach William's wife was injured in an accident. He began putting his thoughts together in rhyme, then set them to music. He and his friends vowed that if his wife recovered, they  would move to NY and start their career.

We're very happy she recovered, as the result is very emotionally passionalte songs.
Their self-titled debut album is available now.

"Thank God I'm a Country Boy" John Denver: World's Worst iPod

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"
A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984.  A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:The Human League "(Keep Feeling) Fascination
It was almost a clean-sweep this morning for the synthesizer heavy "(Keep Feeling) Fascination") by the Human League.  Everybody was in the mood for a little 80s fun! It made it up to #8 on the charts in 1983, a couple of years after...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the...

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...
