Lucero - Women & Work

Diamond Rugs - s/t

Jason Molina - Autumn Bird Songs

New Multitudes - s/t

Delta Spirit - s/t


Still listening to Lucero & Diamond Rugs on a regular basis. I was initially disappointed with the Delta Spirit album, but it's recently caught my ear a little better and I enjoy most of it very much. Molina's "album" really is just a demo session from before he entered rehab a few years ago, but it's brilliant at times.

1. Beach House - Bloom

2. Mark Lanegan - Blues Funeral

3. Band of Horses - Mirage Rock


Ok, I might have put the Shins at #3 but I had to represent for Band of Horses. I honestly don't understand the hate for the new album, which I am loving by the way. I say give it another listen. Or if you have been scared away by the negative talk, give it a first spin and see what you think. :dj

Aimee Mann, The Wallflowers, still waiting for the Peter Buck LP.


That's all for music released in 2012.


Of the new bands I heard some interesting songs by Murder by Death, they were quite good, but I still don't know whether I like the voice of the singer or not, at times he reminds me of Nick Cave.

can on troll if one is a longtime member of the board?


anyway, my favorite critique of Bon Iver is Jim Derogotis calling him Mush Mouth :-)

To be fair, I can't be sure anyone on here knows what trolling is given Wilco's demographic. However, I think a couple of the people that are mainstays of Someone Else's Song and Tongue Tied-Lightning have proven that they're up to date. Then again, this is the internet: supposedly, everyone trolls.
