Tuneful Tuesday MP3some...

Sorry #MusicMonday, but football season is here:
“Next Girl,” The Black Keys
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that guys who LOOK like these guys can produce a wall of electric blues like they do. Here’s an exemplary performance from “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Warning: Includes about 30 seconds of comedy from the manky Scotsman.
“The Direction of the Wind,” Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses
Last year’s Oscar winning alt country sensation channels Dylan (cowfolk, anyone?) on the first single from his new album. There’s a pretty decent boot of the song here.
“Fresh Blood,” Eels
When you name a song “Fresh Blood” and an album “Hombre Lobo” (Wolfman), you know you’re going to end up playing over the end credits of a “True Blood” episode – and that’s how you sell records these days, even if you're a venerable act like Eels.
