Trailer Trad Tunes: Lookin' Forward to Spring Botanical Indie Play List

Sick of the cold weather yet? I've made a playlist that features songs/artists with fruit/plants, etc. in their names to remind us of warmer days ahead!

Local greats The Rosebuds' 'Get Up, Get Out' has to be on the list. "Spring is sneakin' into our bones."

'Cherry Berry' by the Commissioners. Believe or not, this song is named after the Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry. Her office inspects every state government elevator and her picture is displayed in every one. This obscure local song is hilarious and really good!


-Had to throw in an oldie!

Thanks for the succinct review of my play list. I think.

Do you have a lot of Beatnik readers of Trailer Trad?

T. Rex said...

Of course, I have many Beatnik readers. As a matter of fact, I just wore a black turtleneck out the other night--no beret though. And I also bang a mean bongo.

T. Rex,

I would love to showcase your band The Strange Brown Things. I can include you in my next 'animal' (?) playlist. Other bands may include:
Grizzly Bear, Tame Impala, Frightened Rabbit, Fleet Foxes, and P.O. Palustris and The Saabs.

Either T. Rex is a big fan of e.e. cummings or his shift and punctuation keys are broken.

I accidentally deleted your comment (really) but I agree that NC state employees more are attractive and diligent than those of any other state. Thanks!
