SIMPLE MINDED 8-TRACK MIX TAPE – 3rd Quarter 2017

 

Once again, here is the Simple Minded 8-Track Mix Tape.  So here's our top musical picks for the 3rd quarter of 2017 - July, August and September.

THIRD QUARTER 2017 – July, August & September

TRACK 1 – “The Last Letter” by The Deep Shadows from the album The Deep Shadows

PRODUCT OF:  El Paso

THIS SONG KICKS ASS BECAUSE:  It’s a funky trip with a psychedelic tinge that conjures up the spirit of “lovemakin” tunes of the ‘70s.  Come for the smooth grooves but stay for the exotic guitar solo that would make Bombino proud.

IF I CLOSE MY EYES I CAN SEE:  A room with shag carpeting on the floor, walls and roof with a giant sexy bed as tons of sexy ladies are seduced by the sexiness of The Deep Shadows.  Also, there would be black light posters.  Lots and lots of black light posters and black lights.  Please, someone make this video.

FIRST QUARTER 2017

TRACK 1 – “Weak” by AJR from the album The Click

PRODUCT OF:  New York City

THIS SONG KICKS ASS BECAUSE:  It has a fresh altnernopop sound that brings indie music sensibilities to a pop scene that can rapidly grow stale.

IF I CLOSE MY EYES I CAN SEE:  AJR dancing around a New York City Subway car fighting ghosts and/or reacting to heavy drug use.  The lack of hobos pissing on the subway makes this video very unrealistic.

WANT TO READ A FANTASTIC FACT RELATING TO THE SONG THAT WE PROBABLY JUST MADE UP?  DID YOU KNOW:  AJR’s name is not a tribute to PBR, the hipster beer, but a combination of the first names of the three brothers in the band – Adam, Jack and Ryan.
