Wye Oak, esp. "Please Concrete."

Megafaun, esp. "The Fade" or "Find Your Mark." (and I can't believe how much the vocals on "Worried Mind" sound like yours)

I'm enjoying the Sian Alice Group.

Sonic Youth - first song off of The Eternal

Junior Murvin - Working in the Cornfield

Chuck Brodsky - Doc Ellis (aka LSD no-hitter)

John Prine - Sabu visits the Twin Cities Alone

The Steeldrivers - Good Corn Liquor

The video clip makes me very hopeful.
my cd player is pretty much the same as Dave's

Boyda:
The pedal-steel solo on 'The Fade' is really, really nice. Thanks for that.

I'm listening to that Wye Oak song right now. Hmmm.

I'm working on tracking down those Megafaun songs. No luck so far, but...

20 minutes later-

re: 'Worried Mind.' Is that what my voice sounds like? I enjoyed that track.

re: Wye Oak song. I'll be revisiting that one.

i didn't know any of that music, so thanks for the new stuff.

Dave:

1)
I like that Sonic Youth song too. But the lyrics are SO horrible -as usual.

"Anti-War is anti-orgasm..."

"Liberation
--Not your sex slave!
Domination
--Will you behave?"

boo.

I've been enjoying Sonic Youth's 1982 self-titled EP a lot. Richard Edson from 'Stranger Than Paradise' was their drummer on it, and the drums are wicked.

2) Strangely, I'd never listened to Junior Murvin before. I don't think I'm ready to go there yet.

3) I can't find that Doc Ellis song.

4) Sabu. Ha.

5) Can't find it.

Thanks.

Forrest:
re: video clip. Yes. Hopeful. Very.

"Those who [listen to music together] stay together." Right?

Boyda said...

Thanks Matt. I had all that music with my UK Spotify software, but now my 14 day travel allowance is over, and I'm feeling totally bereft of music. Might have to pay the $20/month to keep the subscription in Canada.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the Wye Oak and Megafaun. I am just starting into them.
