Title: Got anything new I can listen to?
Post by: Greg on June 22, 2019, 09:37:09 AM
I just bought Amy Ray's Holler.  I think it should be nominated for a Grammy for Best Folk Album.
Im totally over-the-top biased, but still...great album.
Total folk album.

I also bought Angel Olsen's Burn Your Fire For No Reason.  I like it but don't love it.


You got anything you bought or came across lately?

Boy, that Amy Ray sure is good....

A while back, I stumbled over this band....Hiss Golden Messenger. Seems to have a Dylan/Petty influence. Weird name, but delivered honestly.

Father John Misty.....a bit heavier subject matter, impeccably delivered.

A bit further out there, The Mountain Goats:

A concept album of sorts. A bit of an album for DnD nerds, but I found it captivating anyway... :-)

Well I dont know what to say.  I wasnt expecting to hear three groups I had never heard/heard of before that I absolutely loved hearing.


Those are great.  Quickly...Hiss Messenger has a great great drum sound btw, Father John tune is great. My favorite group of those three has to be that Mountain Goats group.
Just listened to about 5 songs by them. 


I guess that John Darnielle is like Anton from the Jonestown Massacre.  He basically is the group.  I might order a Mountain Goats album this week.
The problem Im going to have is I'll bet there will a half dozen of their releases that I want.  Well, I guess part of only playing records is that you can't have everything.  Im going to have to choose.


Man that guy is good.

I did actually buy that particular Mountain Goats release.....it's good all the way through. I haven't explored further, though.

So glad I hit you with three you hadn't heard! :-)

I am something of a latecomer to this group....

Yes.  Great group. 


btw I think that James Mercer and Danger Mouse made one of the best albums of the last 19 years.  Broken Bells/Broken Bells.


Secondly...this is the status of the Mountain Goats album I ordered a week ago.  Thx for the tip on that group.



Your package will arrive later than expected, but is still on its way. It is currently in transit to the next facility.
Status In-Transit July 3, 2019. In Transit, Arriving Late.

So glad you enjoyed that....I ended up getting a second album by them, "Goths". If I were to compare this one to "Dragons", I'd say it is not as 'gentle'....

Update.


The album came with a 45.


Every Wednesday I am at a local brewery handing out record cases of 45s for people to pick out a record for us to play.


A pic of what this looks like.  We bring a couple turntables and use the house speakers.

The Mtn Goat 45 will be going into one of these boxes.  It would be cool if someone knows the band and says, "I can't believe you have a 45 of theirs!  Play it!"

LOVE the record cases! That's an awesome idea....
