I'm listening to an air conditioning machine in a very quiet room.

It seems like a Bruce Cockburn kinda night

Sometimes with interpretive dance!

Pancho and Lefty:

Nothin:

@Hoiditthroughthegrapevine Well, those were delightful! Let's keep this twang train a-rollin'!

 

"There's just gotta be a place up ahead where men ain't low-down and poker's played fair. If there weren't, what are all the songs about? I'll see y'all there. And we can sing together and shake our heads over all the meanness in the used-to-be."

Chugga Chugga, Twang Twang!! 

Townes wrote it, Merle and Willie made it famous but Hoyt Axton sang it the best (and yes, I am listening to this song an unhealthy amount) 

And a couple more that were written by the man with the golden voice, Mr. Hoyt Axton.

I mean, it is a great song! And now I got a couple new to me artists to check out! 

Let's take this Twang Train up north in search of gold...Gord's Gold!

Gordon Lightfoot also did some good covers, like this one of a Janis Joplin song, followed by one of Lightfoot's lesser known songs.

I'd never heard Gillian Welch before, Time (the revelator) is one of the best songs I've heard this year! 

I love Gordon Lightfoot, I once killed a party when I was in college by showing up with my gord's Gold volume 2 tape and putting on the Wreck of Edmund Fitzgerald. Not a party song I guess. 

Let's take the Twang train down south again to Austin Texas, to get a trio of songs from one of the best singer/songwriters alive today, Sam Baker. 

This first song is an autobiographical number about how he was nearly killed by a bomb planted by the Shining path guerrillas that exploded on a commuter train he was riding on in Peru. 

This one Circles back to Townes Van Zandt, with a different take on Waiting Round to Die. 

And one of the most powerful songs I've ever heard, about Baker's fingers that were broken in the train explosion and which he's never been able to use since the accident.

I recently discovered Bardcore and I have to say, I'm really enjoying this

Bardcore is the best! I think my favorite cover is Orinoco Flow, though.

Discovered this. Maaya Sakamoto's songs have some strange chord progressions and they work incredibly well.

I prefer bardcore songs without vocals, but this one is pretty good.

When I heard the Wellerman tiktok and its remix earllier this year I thought Shantycore might take it's place, but it's kind of died down.

The Wellerman (Sea Shanty) - From TikTok to Epic Remix - YouTube

There's also Morricore/Spaghetti Western remixes, but I've only seen one or two youtubers doing it (AC/DC - T.N.T. [Spaghetti Western version / Morricore] - YouTube)

 

Also, I keep finding my way back to this one

The Kiffness - Ievan Polkka ft. Bilal Göregen (Club Remix) [Official Video] - YouTube
