Another Sunday of starting this but not knowing when I'm going to finish. Going for a run in short order and then I have an in-service for swimming lessons at noon plus all the usual Sunday chores. Really, it would be a day not to bother but I feel like doing one. And so, on to today's ten...

Sunday Shuffle #367

I'm starting this shuffle just after 9:00 but I'm not sure when I'll finish, as I'm going to see Mad Max: Fury Road in a little bit. I was under the weather on Thursday and Friday but by last night I started feeling like myself again. I ran 3 miles this morning and felt pretty good even though I tired about halfway through. Anyway, none of that has to do with the actual music, so here's today's ten...

Sunday Steady (Sunday Shuffle #366)

The Hold Steady's second album, Separation Sunday, celebrated its 10th anniversary last weekend. It was the album that hooked me on the band...I'd probably heard a song on KEXP and decided to take a shot. I loved the mixture of storytelling and rock music and became a fan. So, today we're going to shuffle through their music. The play counts are lower because I haven't listened to them as much since I reconstructed iTunes 5 years ago, except for Heaven Is Whenever, which came out after that time. I've only recently put their 2014 album, Teeth Dreams, in iTunes but I've listened to it on Spotify many times. Anyway, let's get to the music...

1. Big Cig (2) - from Teeth Dreams
2. Same Kooks (8) - from Boys and Girls in America
3. Massive Nights (9) - from Boys and Girls in America
4. Rock Problems (17) - from Heaven Is Whenever
5. One For The Cutters (10) - from Stay Positive
6. Teenage Liberation (4) - outtake from Boys and Girls in America
7. You Gotta Dance…

Sunday Shuffle #365

As I start typing, I have just over 6 hours until I can finally see the new Avengers movie. I've been staying off of Twitter for days so I don't get inadvertently spoiled. I really hope it's good. So, today's shuffle is as much a distraction for me as anything else.
Oh, and with today's edition I've now done a year's worth of Sunday Shuffles. Wow.
