Carly Pearce: Hummingbird

Carly Pearce is really hitting me in the right spot these days with her latest record. Hummingbird is what country music should be in 2024. All the right words, the perfect vibe, and whole lot of heartache!

The Decemberists: As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again

Holy crap do I heart the new record by The Decemberists. As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again is simply gorgeous. The style variety is broad and merrily intriguing. I mean, this track, actually made me stand up and sway my hips...

Buffalo Tom: Jump Rope

Buffalo Tom are back with a whole bunch of great indie rock and alt country songs. Yea, baby! The Boston lads latest is called Jump Rope and it's their first full length record in six years. My mid-90s self is so so happy!

One of my faves...

Pokey LaFarge: Rhumba Country (Album of the Week)

Pokey LaFarge is the pure embodiment of Americana. His music digs deep into the manifest destiny that is the United States. It's as if a time warp opened up and LaFarge spilled out from the American Century. Of course, it all makes sense because his origin point is at the heart of the Midwest, St Louis, Missouri by way of Bloomington, Illinois!

His latest record is called Rhumba Country. The album opens with a mover and a shaker...

Later we hear this cooker...

Even later, it's time for that romantic partner...

I feel so patriotic listening to this record. You should listen to it too!!

Here is one of my faves...

Of Montreal: Lady On The Cusp

Athens, Georgia's own Of Montreal is back with Lady On The Cusp, a ten song collection of indie rock wonder. My favorite track is "Rude Girl On Rotation" because, even as a 57 year old man, I feel that way sometimes.

Lunchbox: Pop And Circumstance

I love music that is current yet makes me feel nostalgic for another time. That's how I feel when I listen to Pop and Circumstance by Lunchbox. The Oakland psych garage outfit gives me all those mid 1960's feels.
