this week listening to...

Fountains of Wayne-Sky Full of Holes

Welding Burns is a truly excellent album. Picott is one of those artists who, in a more fair world, would be far better known.
I've also been enjoying this week new albums by two other unjustly unrecognized artists: Ana Egge's Bad Blood, and Brigitte Demeyer's Rose of Jericho.And, although he's somewhat better known, I'm enjoying John Doe's new album, Keeper.
Rockpile - Live at Montreux
Robert Earl Keen - Ready for Confetti
Steve Cropper - Dedicated
The Bottle Rockets - Not So Loud
Dab Baird & Homemade Sin - Fresh Out of Georgia Live Like a Satellite
The record that's been spinning round and round on the player (and whatever goes on inside an ipod) is
Jolie Holland's Pint Of Blood.
Saw her play at Bush Hall W London this week. Jolie + electric guitar. Seeing songs performed live always adds to the record.
And thanks to the vagaries of iPod shuffle,
Joe Ely's Satisfied At Last
bubbled up and grabbed the attention several times with a WTF was that?
Joe Ely..havent heard 'Satisfied at Last' but reminded how much I loved 'Live Shots', 'Musta Notta Gotta Lotta' ,'Honky Tonk Masquerade' in the late '70's and early '80's
This week (end) it's :-
PJ Harvey - Let England Shake....well deserved 2nd Mercury album of the year for PJ
Richmond Fontaine - The High Country...being looking forward to this and on first impressions won't be dissapointed!
St.Vincent - Actor
