Left Me Dead - Middle Mountain
I was listening to the July Playlist (linked below for both Apple Music and Spotify), and then took a look through my notes and noticed that it has been a long time since I have posted a laid-back rock song...so I am going to remedy that today with Middle Mountain's "Left Me Dead" off of their latest EP The Perfect Kind of Crazy.
Check out the video for "Left Me Dead" below:
I really enjoy that "Left Me Dead" has a retro feel to it; this is the sort of track that feels like I could be hearing it 40 years ago in a park somewhere. Middle Mountain have fused folk and a laid-back rock sound very well, and this has been one of those songs that has wormed its' way into my head and stayed there for dead. The harmonies/lyrics are catchy, and the laid back (but very well played) backing just works that well together.
Plus, who doesn't like a clever use of classic cartoons.
Here's the July 2017 DSD Playlist! We're missing a few tracks this month, which is sad for the Apple Music folks, but you've still got a really solid list this month (if I do say so myself, which I do...*cough*)
We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the July '17 Spotify List (which features 1 more track than the Apple Music list) OR, here's the whole playlist for July right here:
Not to mention the fact that we totally also have a June '17 Spotify List
If you're looking for me to add these lists somewhere beyond Apple Music and Spotify (or you want some of the old lists on Spotify), you're going to have to convince me (hard) by chatting with me here, or on Twitter
If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the Apple Music playlists for:
There are other (earlier) playlists available for you if you check older "Tuesday Tunes" articles, or search on Apple Music itself.
See you again next week!
