3 Songs: On Repeat as chosen and written by Shaun Miley

For this special edition of my 3 Songs: On Repeat feature, I’ve asked my friend and fellow music fanatic Shaun Miley to curate and write about his 3 favorite songs of the moment.  Enjoy! 

Horse Jumper Of Love – “Airport” (Horse Jumper of Love play poignant, hypnotic slow-core, which is summed up perfectly by frontman Dimitri Giannopoulos’ line, “I’ll move at my own pace…” from the single, “Airport”.  The Boston, Massachusetts three-piece drags the listener to the track’s crescendo to leave them spinning slowly amongst the heavy, distorted riffs.  So Divine is out now via Run For Cover Records.)  
Charley Crockett – “5 More Miles” (Charley Crockett is the essence of cool.  His soul/classic country/blues sound was formed in hopped train cars, abandoned warehouses, and the streets where he busked.  In just over two minutes, on “5 More Miles”, Crockett lays out this meandering lifestyle with chugging acoustic guitar and a pounding bass run leading everywhere except to some much needed rest.  The Valley is Crockett’s sixth album in the past five years and is available now from Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers.)   
Neal Francis – “This Time” (A warm greeting from the organ and bass give way to a rush of horns and in the pocket drumming on Neal Francis’ single “This Time”, which takes the listener on a musical journey to New Orleans circa 1973 to hang with Dr. John and The Meters without missing one funky beat.  The lyrics touch on Francis’ struggle with sobriety, but give hope that this time is different.  The debut album, Changes, is out now on Karma Chief Records, a division of Colemine Records.)
