Doesn't have to be a great revelation. Doesn't have to change the year in music. Could be old. Could be new. Just has to do it for this week. So what is doing it for you this week?

Ashgrove by Dave Alvin ... some gems here that I passed over while listening to it before with other stuff going on to divert my full attention ... "9 Volt Plastic Heart" (or whatever it's called) is fantastic.
Love Dave too but if you like that song, check out the guys who wrote it - the best roots band you never heard of: the Iguanas, from New Orleans! Their CD by the same name (9 Volt Plastic Heart) is almost all fantastic, and so is the newest one. Give them a listen: They are actually touring west this summer, rare for them - catch them if you can!
A big thumbs up on this! I'm a huge Iguanas fan, and see them whenever they come through our area. Highly recommended.
The song was written by Dave Alvin and Rod Hodges of the Iguanas. Both are credited on Ashgrove and the Iguanas 9-Volt Plastic Heart album. And both albums are excellent!
9 Volt Plastic Heart was a co-write, Dave and Hodges, no?

If you are in NOLA during Jazz Fest definitely try to catch them.  I just got home from French Quarter Fest and my faves of the day were  Seva Venet’s Jazz Band at Preservation Hall, Meschiya Lake and

the Little Big Horns and the Washboard Chaz Blues Trio.

I may have to give that one a spin myself. Just saw Dave Alvin and the guilty women put on a great free set out on the Santa Monica pier last night. I've seen him a few times and that was by far my favorite set.
9 Volt Plastic Heart is a cover from The Iguanas. Great song, indeed!
The song "Flame Out" is freaking great!!
Just saw Dave & The Guilty Women yesterday at Rhythm and Roots festival in Rhode Island. They totally killed it on "Ashgrove" and "4th of July." Highlight of the festival.
The title song rocks! and it is a history lesson depicting a great music scene that has disappeared.  And "the Man in the Bed Isn't Me" is a touching song about his father that I totally identify with from my own experience with my father when he was about to leave us......absolutely great songwriting, and, of course, stellar guitar!

Southeastern- Jason Isbell... can't wait to hear what's next!
