Chuck Ragan's 'Covering Ground'
Stewboss 'Pilgrims & Runaways'
THE REVEREND PEYTON’S BIG DAMN BAND - the last 3 albums are Americana blues at their best!
Today I cleaned up the piles of burnt cds I'm sorrounded by. Among others I found a fantastic Louris/Olson show from Chicago march 12, 2005 I'm listening to right now. Most of the songs are attended by a nice fiddle. Awesome.
Been hooked on Lucero's "Women and Work" for a few weeks now.
Just bought Justin Townes Earle's "Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now" last night. Loving it so far.
I've been really diggin on 'Velocity' by the Villains. Their first record was pretty good, but this one is out of the park. Some rock ,some country, even some bluegrass.
This week, I've really grokked:
Ray Wylie Hubbard: The Grifter's Hymnal. Different than, but just as gritty and wise as his last album, A)Enlightenment ...
Todd Snider: Agnostic Hymns and Stoner Fables: Not quite as catchy as his previous albums of new material, but still funny. Very solid.
Andrew Bird: Break It Yourself. A gorgeous, heartfelt album.
Been enjoying M Ward's "A Wasteland Companion". A firm favourite right now for album of 2012. I'm just about to check out his back catalogue...what a talent!
I am so enjoying Simone Felice's new album this week after really unexpectedly finding it in a local record shop down under.
