The B-Side: Yellow Shoots

Perfectly blending pop leaning indie electronica with legitimately freaky psych flourishes, “Sirens” by Yellow Shoots feels a bit like a Ween song given the superstar producer remix treatment, and if that isn’t enough to get you to check it out well then I’m not sure what will. It’s fun, it’s grooves and it’s weird enough to stand out on any mix you put it on.

Mike’s Monday Muse – Barbara Lynn

Mike’s Monday Muse is where friend of the blog, roots DJ, house show organizer, Bloomington Music Expo czar and all around nice guy Mike McAfee picks one song a week to share with the people.

Before crushing it left-handed, she tells a great story about Mick Jagger calling her to get permission to cover this song on their Rolling Stones, Now! record. Barbara Lynn, Empress of Gulf Coast Soul, has written, sang and played lead guitar on most of her songs during her incredible 60-year career. She’s so damn good and cool she toured with Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, etc. and has been sampled by Moby and Lil’ Wayne.
