Yelawolf‘s new record won’t be out till 2015…but his song “Till It’s Gone” showed up a couple weeks ago on Sons of Anarchy. Listening to the lyrics…it sure sounds like a song written to show up during a montage on SOA.


And I share my latest episode of Fact Checking The Morning Zone.

I appreciate you taking the time to check out my blog or hitting the songs on Hype Machine.

Matt Drenik is Battleme.  You might know some of the music from the FX TV show Sons of Anarchy.  Like this song, or this song, or maybe this most excellent Neil Young cover.

Battleme will put out a full length in 2014…until then, he’ll wet our whistles with the Weight on The Brain ep.  I do love his SOA songs, so I thought I better hit play on the psyche-rocker “Just Weight.”

It’s a far more aggressive jam compared to the mostly acoustic songs featured on TV.

I dig that.

Battleme is on tour in the States now and playing a couple shows with Metric.  Ain’t that a pip!

Man, my kid looks like a savage warrior.  And some nights before bed, or some mornings getting ready for preschool, she acts like one too!

On our way to some swimming last night, I spied this vintage looking Harley.  I wanted to take a pic, Mads wanted to be in it… so here we are.  Then off to the diving board.  She loves to swim in the deep end, which is wonderful and scary, considering she doesn’t know how to swim.  The good is that she is actually getting kinda competent and I can now see the day when I won’t have to keep her alive in the deep end.  AND I tread a lot of water, so our swimming trips are starting to be a bit of a cardio for fat dad too.  Nice.

Back at the Baker homestead we are almost through season 4 of Sons of Anarchy.  Well Coral is… I have only watched sporadic episodes, but I think I have the story down pretty good.

The other day i wrapped season 3 and I heard a great song by an artist called Battleme.  Battleme is Matt Drenik, lead singer of a band called Lions.  But when he is solo, its Battleme.  He does a cover of Neil Young‘s Hey Hey, My My… and its pretty awesome.

We have been watching lots of Sons of Anarchy lately.  Coral and her sister are obsessed.  Alyx has all the seasons and got Coral into it, now its on at our house all the time.

I have been enjoying the show.  There are some silly bits like how their club is called ANARCHY but they vote on everything.  Opie keeps telling his wife that everything he does is for the family then proceeds to murder people and spend time in jail…not really Dad of the year type stuff. But the show is entertaining and filled with drama.

Also, for a motorcycle show, show more motorcycles!

We’re all broke but Coral and Alyx keep talking about getting motorcycles.  They want little sport bikes… I like the older motorcycles.  I blogged a few years ago about wanting a Harley Nightster which looks like a vintage motorcycle.

But my tastes have changed and now I think I’d actually want something vintage.

My first car was a 1969 Triumph Spitfire… and Triumph made motorcycles.  (Well different parent company, same brand…its a long British Industry story)

I’ll have to do more research… but Wikipedia says the 1969 Triumph was one of their best years for bikes!  That has to mean something right?  The pictures on the internet of both restored and modified Triumphs look cool.  So I dig it.

ANYWAYS…who cares about motorcycles… music.

Sons of Anarchy, like any modern TV show worth its airtime has an interesting soundtrack using both familiar, undiscovered and cover songs to help tell the story.  We’re still in season one, but this song the other night was great.  Subtle, but great.

Lyle Workman & The Forest Rangers – “Fortunate Son” (CCR cover)

This song shows up in Season One, Episode 9; Hell Followed. The original of course… the classic 1969 Creedence Clearwater Revival jam off Willy and the Poor Boys. 1969?  Whoa….
