I don't really keep track of Willie's new stuff, honestly. It seems like he has a collab album out every, like, month, and I'm just rarely ever into them to an extent that would justify keeping up. I...

That sounds great. I had no idea Rawlings was involved; definitely boosts my interest.

I listened to it again last night after you recommended it. It really is tremendous. I'm still processing it, but it's some of his best writing to date.

Robert Christgau loves it, too....

I'll give those a go. Dawes have yet to really impress me, but I keep hoping they'll win me over.

A friend recommended that Stapleton album too. Been meaning to check it out...

I've heard it! I'm a big McMurtry fan. I've been plugging his stuff on here for years.

It's very good, but I just haven't spent enough time with it. His records always take some living with to...

Yeah, and I think "The Devil is My Running Mate" is one of the weaker tracks on Sirens, personally. Jason himself seemed surprised by that pick.

I was also sad that he didn't include "The...

The new Calexico record has been a favorite these last couple weeks. They're beyond surprise at this point but I could listen to Joey Burns sing just about anything--just a great, honest,...

Agreed.

But how is "Dress Blues" not on there?!

Doin' well, my friend. Thanks for asking. I've lurked sporadically; just haven't felt compelled to post in a while. How are you?

Just got around to picking this up last week. I like it alright so far, but I think I'm with jdr and surfwax on this one.

I dunno, I am in favor of this kind of creative growth but I can't escape...

Animals is my favorite.

But purely in terms of songwriting, I think The Final Cut is very possibly their strongest record. It's a lot more naked than most people expect from a Pink Floyd album,...

I'm no expert on the behind-the-scenes stuff, so forgive me if I'm wrong, but didn't Iha contribute quite a bit to their sound early on, if not to the songs themselves (which I know were primarily...

Disc one is more consistent, but disc two probably has more of my favorite songs.


I really like "Czarina" from that era.

"Glynis" is one of my favorite SP tracks.

Most of Pisces is awesome. My...

Hey, "Lily" is awesome--sometimes I pull out Mellon Collie just to play it and "We Only Come Out at Night." Probably the funniest song in the SP library, too--unless you count unintentional comedy,...

Had a wonderful time in Moline, IL last night.

I thought about doing an introductory Cave mix, actually. Certainly an overlooked guy around here.

George's mix:

I really like early, all-in-one-take rock and blues music. Almost all of it is imperfect--stumbling and swinging, you know, and that's a huge plus to my ears. The limitations of two...

Thanks for listening, man. "Sign on the Window" is probably my single favorite track from that era, so I'm really glad you're so into it.

Brad's mix:

I really liked this. It has a very laid-back, easy-going breeziness to it but is also pretty soulful and earnest. You kind of lost me in the middle, but the last three songs were killer,...

Thanks, man. For clarity, though, this isn't my version of a "greatest hits" of the period; this playlist is meant to reflect the title--easygoing, fun, maybe a little restless, but basically just...

Thanks for the thoughtful response, George.


That version is actually incredibly rare. It was a single that was only released on CD overseas on a comp called Masterpieces, which was remastered in...
