March Feel Bad For You

Since March is almost over, I probably should post the Feel Bad For You comp. D'oh! This month it slipped my mind...

1. The Bailey Hounds - Resurrection Man
Along the Gallows (2011)
Submitted By: popa2unes
Comments: Philly’s The Bailey Hounds, describe their music as Cemetery Blues. They are participating in Couch by Couchwest this year.

2. Public Enemy - Fight the Power
Fear of a Black Planet (1990)
Submitted By: Gorrck

3. McDougall - A Few Towns More.mp3
Buy A Few Towns More (2012)
Submitted By: Autopsy IV
Comments: This album doesn’t come out until April and it is already a favorite in the camps. When it gets released, people are gonna flip their shit for it, or at least those that care about good music are going to.

4. Punch Brothers - Who’s Feeling Young Now
Who’s Feeling Young Now? (2012)
Submitted By: @philnorman
Comments: The Punch Brothers are playing chess, the rest of the music world is playing checkers.

5. Jessie Mae Hemphil - You Can Talk About Me
Deep Blues soundtrack (1992)
Submitted By: Brad Kelly
Comments: I was lucky enough to see the late Jessie Mae at a blues festival in Clarksdale, MS, in the early 90s. From a famous Mississippi blues family, she was the real thing, playing in the North Mississippi blues style made popular by Mississippi Fred McDowell, and more recently by Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside. Powerful.

6. Army Navy - The Long Goodbye
The Last Place (2011)
Submitted By: Ryan (Verbow @
Comments: Sweet jangle/power pop number I stumbled upon thanks to 88.1 KDHX (St. Louis). Not groundbreaking, but it will get stuck in your head.

7. Bohannons - Working The Door
Daytrotter Session (2012)
Submitted By: Corey Flegel (This Is American Music)
Comments: this song was the closer to the Bo’s uncharacteristically lo-fi Daytrotter session.

8. Hanni El Khatib - You Rascal You.mp3
Buy: Will the Guns Come Out (2011)
Submitted By: Beldo/TheSecondSingle
Comments: Somehow this ISN’T a Black Keys song, but I suspect a conspiracy is afoot. I love it anyway.

9. Lone Justice - Dixie Storms
Shelter (1986)
Submitted By: toomuchcountry
Comments: March 2012 in the south and midwest and April 2011 in Joplin MO, Tuscaloosa AL, Ringgold, GA. So much destruction, fear, recovery, randomness, amazement, deaths, and miracle of survival. Yet all of it comes with living in the land of Dixie.

10. The District Attorneys - Slowburner.mp3
Free Download: Waiting On the Calm Down (2011)
Submitted By: TheOtherBrit
Comments: These dudes rule. Go check em out at SXSW if you’re there!

11. The Steeldrivers - If It Hadn’t Been for Love
The Steeldrivers (2008)
Submitted By: Simon
Comments: Adele, Adele, Adele, Adele, Adele, Adele, Adele, radio, TV, magazines, web, she’s everywhere right now – but ‘her’ best song was borrowed from The Steeldrivers.

12. Cab Calloway and his Orchestra - A Chicken Ain’t Nothin’ but a Bird
28863 OKeh -5847 single (1940)
Submitted By: April @ Now This Sound is Brave
Comments: Because Cab, that’s why.

13. The Kinks - Got My Feet On The Ground
Kinda Kinks (1965)
Submitted By: Erschen

14. Songs: Ohia - Farewell Transmission
Magnolia Electric Co. (2003)
Submitted By: Rockstar Aimz
Comments: Despite the fact that it’s been a fairly mild winter, we here up in the north are still fighting the winter blues. Jason Molina and seasonal disorder go together like peas and carrots.

15. Queen - Stone Cold Crazy
Sheer Heart Attack (1974)
Submitted By: BoogieStudio22
Comments: Ahhh… my teen years.

16. Roger Miller - Do Wacka Do
The Return of Roger Miller (1964)
Submitted by: Adam Sheets
Comments: Roger Miller > Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan

17. The White Buffalo - Good Ol’ Day to Die.mp3
Buy: Once Upon a Time in the West (2012)
Submitted By: Trailer

18. Old Sledge - Danville Girl
Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down (2011)
Submitted By: Truersound
Comments: I was first turned on to Old Sledge via Ben from The Foxhunt (who played on this album), and now, a year later I am not so sure this band even exists anymore. Former member Anna Roberts-Gevalt now comprises one half of my latest musical obsession Anna and Elizabeth (with Elizabeth LaPrelle), and she’s a pretty good dance caller to boot.

19. The Mountain Goats - This Year.mp3
Buy: The Sunset Tree (2005)
Submitted By: @mikeorren
Comments: My pal Josh Jones (GM of KHYI) turned me onto this band and this tune specifically a couple weeks ago. If you’ve got more on your back than you can carry, I highly recommend turning this one up and screaming along. Guarantee you’ll feel better, or at least a wee bit more courageous.

20. Good Saints - Texas Moan
Driftwood On The Fire EP (2011)
Submitted By: Slowcoustic
Comments: Just some hazy laid back country music from Kentucky. Nuff said.

21. Billie Holiday - Gloomy Sunday
The Great Billie Holiday (disc 1) (2007)
Submitted By: annieTUFF
Comments: This song never fails to make me stop whatever I’m doing and just listen.
