The return of Sara Petite to the UK stage has had me upping the play count on her three albums - Tiger Mountain, Lead The Parade and Doghouse Rose. Hard not to smile when listening; impossible at a show.
I'm liking "Life Will Find A Way" by the Grascals
Paul Thorn's WHAT THE HELL IS GOIN' ON?
To assuage the post-Kilkenny festival blues listening to plenty of Rod Picott,Amanda Shires,Israel Nash Gripka and Hiss Golden Messenger,especially "Poor Moon"...and before the live Bruce onslaught over the next few weeks giving "Wrecking Ball" some time too.
Also enjoying Anais Mitchell-"Young Man In America"(cheers Declan for turning me on to this one!) and Danish pedal steel player Maggie Bjorklund's "Coming Home".Nice!
Rod Picott and Amanda Shires and both highly talented artists and deserve far greater recognition than they currently get. Rod has a string of fine releases under his belt, especially "Tiger Tom Dixon's Blues", "Stray Dogs" and "Welding Burns" while Amandas' "Carrying Lightning" is a superb effort.
"When Bitter Met Sweet", the new CD from the Honeycutters. Definitely doing it for me!
This video is of a song from their first CD...
Thanks for introducing me to The Honeycutters Pete, I am digging them now myself this week along with anything by Will Kimbrough and the new Jerry Jeff Walker tribute by Todd Snider.
Mate , i clicked on that out of boredom , got a day off , painted the fence already. I wasn't expecting much.
That is effing awesome. Thanks for posting it.
Stevie, I bought the new Honeycutters CD (which I love) after seeing Peter's post but for some reason I never watched this video until just a few minutes ago too. I immediately went to Bandcamp and bought their first album "Irene". Waiting right now for it to finish downloading so I can listen to it. Enjoy the day off!
Hello, I am a newbie to the site but a long time N D fan ( man I miss that rag big time still!)
Of the cd's I have picked up since Friday last, my favourite ( at the moment) is the latest offering from Counting Crows "Underwater Sunshine" ( or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation)
Loaded with wonderful covers and artfully done I might add
ANIMAL YEARS - josh ritter
Really digging...completely loving....totally buying into "Fear Fun" by Father John Misty...
