Mike’s Monday Muse – Trace Mountains

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.

Last fall I read a recommendation from rock star John Moreland about House Of Confusion, the new album by Lame-O Records recording artists, Trace Mountains. John was right-on of course. Months later I think we all need to own their previous record, Lost In The Country, too. File Trace Mountains under early morning coffee/late night driving jams.

Week Starter – Crackdaniels

Week Starter is our new Monday column where we give you a new song to kick the working week in the ass & help you power on through.

Not all motivational songs are going to be obvious blow the doors off high octane bangers. It’s the second full week of the coldest month of the year in this, the third year of our Lord Covid and so we felt a more fitting jam to get you going today is the dark, swirling, hypnotic “AntHills” by Crackdaniels. Landing somewhere between Aesop Rock and Earl Sweatshirt this track is a lone figure staring down a gray on gray horizon that lets you know sometimes a dope beat and a solid flow are better for you than hot cocoa and a sun lamp.
