Hard Travelin’ – Ramblin Jack Elliot & Woody Guthrie

I was working a little (against my will) this morning. I had my corporate-devil digital music player selected to play the last few albums I’ve downloaded when the Ramblin’ Jack Elliot album, Hard Travelin’: Songs By Woody Guthrie And Others chimed in. This is a GREAT collection of folk songs, even for people who don’t […]

Downloaded Music – January 2008

This is a new section I’m thinking about doing. Every month I get 90 downloads from emusic. Sometimes I just don’t know what to pick, so I fish around till I find something I might like. This month I downloaded some pretty cool stuff and I’d like to share… L’autre Bout Du Monde by Emily […]

Childish Music, A Collection of Songs

Childish Music is a compilation of songs loosely aimed at superhip, progressive people (aka babies) and maybe not even aimed at kids, as the title implies. Nontheless, it’s a hefty compilation with some really great tracks. I found it through a search on Devendra Banhart because [I’m obsessed and] he has a track on the […]

Devendra Banhart

My newest musical obsession: Devendra Banhart. The music is quiet, passionate, sincere and obscure, if not on occasion bizarre. It’s a really welcomed change to the norm, and I hope to get a chance to see him live in the coming years. Devendra, the persona, is interesting in its own right: a melody of Argentinian […]

Bird is the Word

It is Thursday, November 29, 2007 and I have just had an art-of-body experience. Justin & I made our way to Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence to see Andrew Bird, violinist extraordinaire, and his experimental band of gypsies perform. I’m writing about it here because I believe what I experienced tonight was less of a […]

You’re no rock n’ roll fun / like a party that’s over before it’s begun You’re no rock n’ roll fun / like a piece of art / that no one can touch And all the boys in the band / know how to get downfill our Christmas socks /with whiskey drinks and chocolate bars […]

We were all basically alone / Despite what all his studies had shown / What was mistaken for closeness was just a case for mitosis This is a great freakin’ album.
