Three large posts, a truckload of music, little-to-no editorialising (or even editing). It's the A-Z of what's been catching Scruffy's ears, too much for one post. Part one was here.
Hold Steady did some shows with Deer Tick. Must have been amazing. Here's Deer Tick doing a Hold Steady tune.
Deer Tick - Constructive Summer (Hold Steady Cover)
And some Hold Steady.
I Hope This Whole Thing Didn't Frighten You

The Mariachi Ghost mix tradition with ambition, classic sounds with some unexpected twists, somehow managing to make the band's aural effects as arresting as the visuals. Would you have guessed The Mariachi Ghost hail from Winnipeg? Hit the link to listen to the album.
Milwaukee - Aimee Mann and Leo are The Both
Nai Harvest - Ain't That Enough, Free download of a Teenage Fanclub cover! One of my favourite bands at the moment, sleazy guitars and slippery vocals, lazy cool even when aggression rears its ugly head.
Old 97s - Most Messed Up
Doug Paisley is from TO, but that isn't necessarily evident from his music. To me, he fits in with Del Barber, Corb Lund, and Daniel Romano, well-crafted songs without pop, rock, or flash - Canadiana?
Doug Paisley - Radio Girl
Doug Paisley - Song My Love Can Sing
Doug Paisley - No One But you
Doug Paisley - If I Wanted To
Doug Paisley - Sad Sinner
Peter Buck - Monkey Mask
Pixies' Women of War is a free download from te band to you.
