  1. Yo can watch the whole show here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CMLyJuRFdZi/ I really enjoyed the performance, besides the obvious elation of (half) the band being reunited. They trio of them should go on tour. Tri-co?
  2. Did you dream about killing again me last night? Did it feel alright to you?
  3. Nice! That is very cool. I am holding out for CD or digital release.
  4. Yeah, oddly, the digital release was a few months ago but the physical release was this week. That seems to be the direction the music industry is moving in. I echo all the above sentiments. Additionally, even when Cooley's writing contributions are minimal, the songs he submits are out-of-the-park great. DBT are pretty much the only band I listen to that are putting out topical songs of the times right now.
  5. Ben Kweller's first album since 2012 comes out on New Year's Day (technically it is out already but physical copy is due on NYD). I'm expecting a quiet year otherwise, most all my favorite bands released albums in 2020. Since all those bands couldn't tour behind their new albums, I wonder if they'll wait 'til touring resumes to release any follow-ups.
  6. I'm still waiting on Joe Dimaggio Done It Again!
  7. More or less in favorite order! 1. Soul Asylum - Hurry Up and Wait 2. Drive-By Truckers - The Unraveling 3. Taylor Swift - Folklore 4. Alex Dezen - IV (So Far) 5. Pearl Jam - Gigaton 6. Phish - Sigma Oasis 7. Old 97s - Twelfth 8. Ohhme - Fantasize Your Ghost 9. Kathleen Edwards - Total Freedom 10. Richard Thompson - Bloody Noses (EP) 11. Jeff Tweedy - Love Is The King 12. Letter To You - Bruce Springsteen 13. Drive-By Truckers - The New OK
  8. Via Chicago California Stars Lost Love Not For the Seasons (2001 solo tour/IATTBYH film version) Be Not So Fearful (IATTBYH film version) Born Alone I'm Always In Love Jesus Etc One Wing Magazine Called Sunset I 'm really tempted to include Sometimes It Happens on here, but didn't want to go too heavy on cover songs. The Wilco recording is beautiful. One Sunday Morning is another contender my for top-10. Secret of the Sea also almost made the list.
  9. Part of the comedy of the show is Susie interacting with commenters and responding to the comments, which could usually provoke an interesting/funny comment or conversation by/with Jeff. That's going to disappear, unless they do the two-phone thing, I didn't care for the comments at first either, but have grown to appreciate them. I pay attention to them during the between-song banter, and minimize them during the songs. In the old format you could still see 2 or 3 or 4 comments when minimized but now you really have to pick one or the other, which is really annoying. Jeff is really good at grasping what is going on on the screen just by Susie's descriptions. I would have a hard time keeping up with someone describing what's happening on a screen that I can't see, I would have to keep asking to see the phone. I don't think the video is larger, as some people were saying, I think IG just rounded the borders. But it did look sharper?
  10. Thanks particularly for your Mazzy Star link! I had not seen that video before, and it may be the best, clearest, up-close video of them out there. I wish there was a whole show like that. if it hasn't been said yet, Taylor Swift's new record is very good. Mirrorball in particular is fantastic.
  11. You're very welcome, Donna! Glad you enjoyed some of my selections =)
  12. Heather Robb (The Spring Standards) Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig (Lucius) Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star) Neko Case Kathleen Edwards Joan Shelley Macie Stewart and Sima Cunningham (OHMME) Erika Wennerstrom On the obscure end of the spectrum, I've been haunted by Rosa Agostino aka Red Ghost, a guest singer on the Soulsavers' 2009 album "Broken." She performs the lead vocal on "By My Side" and "Rolling Sky" and she performed her own set as the opening act on the "Broken" tour. Seems she never got signed and only has a few pieces of her own music out there. I can still listen to those two songs over and over and be mesmerized. (Links are all to artists'/labels' official YT pages)
  13. Save It For Later is burned into my consciousness as a Pete Townshend song. I didn't hear the original version until many, many years later.
