Guest DJ: Lindsay from Rock and Roll Mama

First visit to Music Savvy Mom? Awesome! Go HERE quick to get caught up.
——————–
Ahhh, Lindsay. She’s the brains behind Rock and Roll Mama, and you may remember from my first Saturday Shout Out that she was also one of the first to jump into this crazy blog idea with both feet and welcome me with open arms.
Turns out she’s a kick ass shuffler, too.
But before we get to that, let me clue you one some new tidbits I’ve unearthed since last raving about her. Another professional writer, she’s got her fingers in LOTS of pies, my friends. A pulished journalist, fiction and non-fiction author, conference presenter, instructor in both writing AND yoga…not to mention mother of three and supportive wife to a touring musician. Holy multitasking, Batman!
When she first emailed me, she mentioned that we must be sisters separated at birth. When I read her “About” section, I saw exactly what she meant…and was shocked, because in it she lays out exactly what I felt I’d like this blog to be for Moms. I swear I had not seen her site before throwing this together, but I wish I had…because she brings to life the Rock and Roll/Music Savvy Mom essence with words much more eloquent than those I can muster. She’s the kind of writer who can evoke powerful emotions with a few carefully crafted lines. Y’know – kind of like a well written song lyric..?
So, if you like the idea and feeling of THIS blog, you REALLY, REALLY need to spend some time here, here, there, there, there and everywhere at Rock and Roll Mama. It’s the brighter, more insightful, more intuitive side of the same coin.

(And, Lindsay agrees with me. You need to buy the music if you love it.)


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

William Elliott Whitmore– Midnight
This Lee County Iowa farmboy rocks the banjo and stomps along as percussion, never missing a beat. His voice is timeless and unique-and he’s a kickass dude. If he plays anywhere near you, run, don’t walk. They only made one of these cats.
Clutch– 50,000 Unstoppable Watts (had to sub. damn you, playlist.com! *shakes fist* – Ri)
Anthrax, Ham radio, and Liquor- well, that pretty much says it all. This is the single from the new Clutch album, “Strange Cousins from the West” – now more blues influenced than DC hardcore, these 4 have been playing together so long it’s a psychic groove. 20 years, to be precise. It’s been a while since I first saw them play the high school talent show, when they were seniors and I was a freshman. But it never gets old. (Disclosure: You will so be buying me a latte if you buy this: TIA!)
White Rabbits– Percussion Gun
The juxtaposition of the harmonies and the fierce double drums in this song get me every time- just beautiful and haunting. This is the White Rabbit’s sophomore album, and I predict they’re the next Bon Iver.
Fleet Foxes– He Doesn’t Know Why
FF are the old Bon Iver- no, not really, they’re themselves. But another album with haunting harmonies that just leave me hitting replay.
Bob Dylan– Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright
Classic- to the college boyfriend I chased to Wyoming- Thanks for making me see the genius that is Bob Dylan- I can’t say you never gave me nothing. But when you played this song and said it reminded you of me, I knew we wouldn’t share our twilight years- or even our twenties.
In hindsight: Well done, you!
TV On the Radio– Wolf Like Me
Always makes me think of “Twilight”, for some reason. Love the tempo changes and the trippy vibe of this song- you feel like a wolf running through the woods.
Kings of Leon– Be Somebody
I love old KOL, as well, but I felt like with “only by the Night” they upped their stadium rock sound to a level that’s really satisfying sonically, and yet keeps the intimacy of Caleb’s voice. I love the soaring guitars with the tight bassline- I think this is my fave song on a top 6 album. (Yes, I have weird numbered lists in my head- I’m a little rain girl about music, OK?)
Fugazi– Waiting Room
I spent more freaking hours as a fourteen year old in the DC burbs, in my room, rewinding the “13 songs” tape a friend had dubbed for me from our hometown heroes. – everytime this song started, I would throw myself into a headstand against the wall- violently, suddenly, wanting to upend my placid nannified existence, get out of the “Waiting Room” and turn 18 so I could go to Fort Reno and see Fugazi live like the big kids.
Simon and Garfunkel– Mother and Child Reunion (can you believe I had to sub this, too???)
Love the wistfulness of this song, paired with the happy happy joy of the instrumentation- I craved it as an adolescent, when I was struggling with being adopted and really identified with it. Now I’ve had the mother and child reunion. And it was not false hope.:)

Garrison Starr– 5 Minutes I saw Garrison open for Mary Chapin Carpenter about 8 years ago, and she opened with this song. I was flummoxed- her voice is so pure, but strong- she reminded me of Shawn Colvin in some ways. One of my favorite female singer songwriters working today.

Thanks for indulging me, Ri! It’s nice to have a Sister in Sound.:)
(Or a number of them, cause you gots the mad awesome shufflers, yo.)
