Vintage Thrift Shop

The Postmodern Jukebox Band does a ragtime take on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop."

Nice.

Scott Bradlee is the brains behind the operation.

North Mississippi Allstars – Shake ‘Em On Down

A co-worker mentioned how he digs the Allman Brothers, which reminded me of these guys. It’s been a while since I’d listened to the North Mississippi Allstars, and realized that such a thing is a horrible mistake to make. When I first heard their sound, all I could think was that they should be huge, and it bothered me that more people didn’t know about them. Great rocking blues, with some Allman Brothers styling, but sweatier, dirtier, and nastier. From their 2000 album Shake Hands With Shorty, this is the greatest song ever (at least for today), Shake ‘Em On Down.

San Cisco in my ears

Current earworm that I'm totally okay with: San Cisco's "Awkward." Their early-rock sensibilities bring along some interesting rhythms.

This young four-piece band has been making waves at music festivals across Australia, which got them signed to Fat Possum records, who'll be releasing their self-titled EP in a couple of weeks.

Django Django in my ears
