Two songs I keep playing over and over again:
Local Natives - Who Knows, Who Cares (HD Quality) - YouTube
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - "Heart in Your Heartbreak" - YouTube
I'm usually completely bored by Snow Patrol, but I really like their new one, "Called Out in the Dark". The open sounds like something immediately familiar, and the chorus has a kind of jarring Moody Blues/ELO feel to it.
judas priest - nostradumas
kip winger's solo disc .
Interesting. Saw him at WaldenBooks back in the day at Charleston Town Center, reading a magazine article about himself. He was wearing a hand-painted jacket with his name on it, and making no effort to disguise who he was, but no one bothered him.
I've been pretty disappointed in this year's music with a few exceptions (Decemberists, Head & Heart, Civil Wars, Noah and the Whale) but some stuff I'm hearing now has me hopeful things are picking up. I like the new Ryan Adams song better than anything I've heard from him in years, and I'm also looking forward to the new Wilco release, and the songs I've heard from NeedtoBreathe sound interesting. The New Chili Peppers sounds good too, but that almost seems to be in the 'it is what it is' category.
I really like Jackson Browne's new stuff, some of the best I've heard from him since The Pretender, but why is he recording it under the name "Dawes"?
keith jarrett koln concert; neil young unplugged; paul mccartney unplugged; hugh laurie let them talk..
Anyone heard the new Wilco album?
2015 Rotation: Under Construction
Interesting. I've heard it called boring, but that was by a Son Volt partisan, so who knows?
Then again, I liked the last album, even if there wasn't a real flow to it. If I were a Red, I would want Bull Black Nova to be my at bat music. The nerve-racking keyboard part, specifically.
I like the new Wilco.
With exception of first 6 songs on first album Son Volt is pretty much painfully boring IMO and Jay Farrar solo live might be one of the most dour and uninspiring performers I'm ever seen.
What a wet blanket that dude is.
Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun
This is another good example of 2 talented song writers butting heads and letting there egos get the best of them .

"I can make all the stadiums rock."
Anyway, I'm listening to the new EP from the New Shouts and I cannot get enough. True, true pop with just enough Motown. It's derivative, but so full of joy that I don't really care. Great stuff. You can buy the EP here:
and there are a couple of songs for free download here:
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
