Song of the Day – 6/23/09

Published by at 1:00 am under Song of the Day


I’m on my way out the door, but I just heard a song I’d love to share with you. A short song by Philadelphia’s Grubstake. From what I understand, these guys are just about to release their fifth album and have a serious local following. Grubstake are huge proponents of dirty, folky blues. I can hear Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Woodie Guthrie, Lou Reed and the White Stripes all at once, just from their MySpace. They are certainly unattended on the edges, but no song has made me want to drive a truck so badly. No bullshit.

MP3: Grubstake – “Recession Blues 2001”

Alright, here are a few more, at random.

MP3: Grubstake – “Whispering Blues”

MP3: Grubstake – “Musicians”

Let me know what you think, or if you know anything about these guys that I don’t. PEACE.

    Awesome! It could easily be my song of the week, especially because it so (too) short!
    I love the idea that “no song has made me want to drive a truck so badly”, I know a few that make me feel like that as well. Please continue to share!

    Well done Akhil, now this song is stuck forever in my head! It’s a pretty addictive one!
    (sorry for the double comments, I don’t intend to spam your blog, I just wanted to let you know…)
