New Digs: Daytrotter's My Record Store

Haven't picked up anything new recently. Okkervil River's new one came out today, but i never left my house, so.... for now enjoy a few splendid, new Daytrotter sessions.

To this day, i haven't found anything from these guys that i don't think is amazing. This session is no exception.

Speaking of.... i'm gonna get to catch the brothers (along with Deer Tick) in about a month in the crescent city - if it makes through the storm season.....

Check out the venue:
Looks like it'll be a regular ol' shin-dig down in 'Nawlins.

Justin Townes Earle
Although i didn't completely enjoy his debut The Good Life - a few good songs, but a little too much of a hoe-down, swing-country feel - i did like his EP Yuma, his HearYa Live Session, and this one. Highlight: cover of The Replacements' Can't Hardly Wait.

i've kinda been diggin' on Bon Iver and For Emma, Forever Ago. It's a vocally-driven album with sparse and interesting instrumentation - perfect for a rainy day. The sound on this session is even more meager, but i dig it none the less.

  1. We are still here. If you haven't been to Maple Leaf, its tiny, but man do you hear some great music.

    Let me know when you are heading this way and I will give you some places to eat and check out, if you need them.
