New Digs.....

This past weekend i got to let off some steam and relax whilst floating the Guadalupe River with some friends. For those not familiar with how you float a river - well.... you sit in an inner-tube connected to a chocked-full ice chest and let the river do the grunt work.
While down there, i stocked this new computer up with a stash of new tunes - some ripped off from friends, and some i bought.

i've mentioned how i buy a lot of my music from before. The store's home base is in the quaint hill country town of Gruene, TX. If you're ever in that neck of the woods, go in -----> cool people and free beer (and sometimes cd's).......

While i sort out all this new music (and, if i can get to it... my life), here's a sampling of some the best so far:


mp3: The Replacements - Can't Hardly Wait

mp3: Bob Dylan - Who Killed Davey Moore?

mp3: Travis Linville - Hard Knocks
buy See You Around (2008)

mp3: Hayes Carll - Wild As A Turkey
buy Trouble In Mind (2008)
for jojo.

i had always seen The Jayhawks mentioned with the likes of Uncle Tupelo and Whiskeytown as being big players at the start of the alt-country scene, and picked up a track or two, but never really listened to 'em. At the lonestarmusic store, i picked up their last album, Rainy Day Music, and was immediately blown away.
i still can't find a song to skip, but try these on......

mp3: The Jayhawks - All The Right Reasons
mp3: The Jayhawks - One Man's Problem


  1. aw, you made my day, paytonbaby! thanks for the HC, and jayhawks to boot! aye, my ipod is happy. =) very cool photo of the record shop!

    i used to live in tulsa, how i miss the southwest.

  2. Don't stop there with the Jayhawks. All their albums are brilliant and very unique, each album experimenting and moving forward from the last. 'Hollywood Town Hall' is one of the greatest albums ever made and just listen to 'Sound Of Lies' to see where Wilco got their inspiration for 'Summerteeth'. But you really can't go wrong with any of their stuff.
