Saturday Shuffle 31


My goodness Saturday's seem to be coming around quicker and quicker these days. That's a months worth of Shuffles already.

We will start today with Billy Bragg the Bard of Barking with Help Save the Youth of America a song from the difficult third album 1985's Talking With the Taxman About Poetry. Sadly, it maybe already too late but locking up the orange man child would certainly help. That and banning guns obviously.

Caitlin Cary and Thad Cockrell are two great Americana artists in their own right. When they got together in 2005 to record the album Begonias they took things to a whole new level. An album I still need to acquire in a physical format. The song that the shuffle opened up today is Please Break My Heart.

Finally we have the Glasgow twins Rachael and Paul Swinton who are known collectively as Cloth. Today's offering Curiosity Door is taken from their self-titled debut album from 2019 released by Last Night From Glasgow. They subsequently joined Mogwai's Rock Action label and released a follow up Secret Measure earlier this year.

More random musical treats next Saturday.
