It the Griffin album out yet? I completely forgot about that. Must go track that down.

What's your RIYL for Grouper?

It is out. And it's fantastic.

I just think Patty's underappreciated in general. I honestly think Living With Ghosts should by all rights be one of those canonical, universally recognized records that shows up on every "best of" list that includes the '90's. And the rest of her discography ranges from very good to excellent. She's one of the most consistent songwriters working.

I've never really given Will Hoge an honest listen, though I've seen you mention him a few times. What's a good starter record?

I co-sign Will Hoge. Draw the Curtains is pretty unreal. Though his best song, "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" is on The Wreckage.

How does Patty Griffin not even crack that bottom tier? Blasphemy.

He already told me yesterday he was downloading it. Haha.

I was talking about your list. Haha. But I'm just joshing. I've heard Dawes, Nick Cave, I&W, Emmylou/Crowell, Autre Ne Veut, Night Beds, and Caitlin Rose out of the ones you listed. Anything else there you think I might like?

And yeah, I'll try to grab those Will Hoge records.

Donovan Woods would probably be up your alley.

I could see you getting down with Neville. Soul legend with a band led by Keith Richards doing reinventions of doo-wop.

Alice Smith might be a bit more modern than you prefer your R&B, but I'd say she's worth a spin, maybe.

The rest is probably too poppy to be your jam.

Noted. Thanks, man. Have you listened to this yet, by the way? Thoughts?

Not yet. Last time I checked, it wasn't on spotify yet. Will check again.
