The fine folks over at the 9513 drew my attention to some good stuff this AM. LaundroMatinee has several videos from a Joe Pug live performance, including the unreleased songs “Not So Sure” and “Bury Me Far From My Uniform,” and there’s a video for “Old Enough,” a new bluegrass-inspired single by the The Raconteurs featuring Ricky Skaggs, Ashley Monroe and Twang Nation friend Mark Watrous on fiddle.
As an early Christmas present Dar Williams is giving away some cuts from her Ann Arbor show at The Ark on September 17, 2008 (Hank Williams Sr’s birthday!) – “It’s Alright” “Buzzer” “Easy Way.”
The Grammys nominees will be unveiled tonight, and No Depression has a few words on some of the nominees. I typically tune in to check out the music to avoid.
Last but not least, RIP to legendary singer Odetta.
“the deVillebillies” have released their long awaited debut cd. 8 tracks of pure American Country Music , or as they prefer to call it, Turbo Twang! No sugar coated crap here. Jim Brandmeier of 180 Music in L.A. says “the deVillebillies are the real deal!” Check it out at the devillebillies.com for links to downloads at Amazon, Lala, Tunecore, emusic, and AmieMusic. Real music played by real people.
YOU WON’T BE SORRY – fun stuff!!
