Routes and Branches Play List 07/03/10

All of the music I played this afternoon featured bands playing around town tonight, next week at the Oregon Country Fair, or the following weekend at the Northwest String Summit. I wouldn't normally play Moe on my show even though I like their music a lot, most of it doesn't fit, but they are one of the bands performing at the Northwest String Summit and so it sent me looking for a country flavoured tune and "Can't Seem To Find" had enough twang and some Neil Young style harmonica to it for me. Other artists performing at the Northwest String Summit include Darol Anger, Danny Barnes, Crooked Still, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Urban Monroes and of course The Yonder Mountain String Band. You can find all the details to this weekend of music at:

I had my new favorite band into the studio this afternoon. Shotgun Majors turn me onto I See Hawks In L.A. and I happened to catch their show at Sam Bond's Garage this week. They had me hooked with the first tune they performed "Raised By Hippies". Anyone who knows me and listens to this song will know why. Then when I found out that Dave Alvin said that they were "one of California's unique treasures" I was totally on board. Their most recent album Shoulda Been Gold is a mix of tracks from their previous albums with 5 new previously unreleased tracks. I find the whole album a joy to listen to and I will be bringing you more them on my show in the future.

The rest of the tunes on today's list are of performers appearing at next week's Oregon Country Fair. KRVM will be broadcasting Live from the Blue Moon Stage of the fair all 3 days next weekend. Appearing during my show will be Opal Creek and Casey Neil and friends. If you can't be at the fair be sure to tune in to KRVM to listen to the fair.

I'm so glad to hear you like "I See Hawks in L.A." I figured they'd be in your wheelhouse.

Also glad you went to their show. You'll have to tell me about it next time I see you.
