Gigolo A Go Go - Episode 5
Welcome to Episode 5, featuring some Alt Country, Americana type songs (I'm never really quite sure what to call them) that I've been digging and writing about over the past few years. This mix has a different vibe from the first four episodes, but damn, these songs are beautiful and the groove holds up.
I really enjoyed kicking the mix off with a twelve minute Lucinda Williams tune. The extended length gives the song time to breath, like a good wine (or bourbon).
This mix also includes one of my favorite songs of the decade (Cigarettes & Truckstops), the best cover of the decade (The Promise), and a song that brings back a memory so beautiful that I can actually listen to it without getting sad.
Anyhow, here is the playlist:
