Only Two and a Half Days Until Monday

Only Two and a Half Days Until Monday

I figured I’d share a little with you today. I don’t have any great words of wisdom, hell I’m barely treading water at this point, but I’ve been mulling over a playlist for a while and I put it together when I was supposed to be working this morning. So here’s a little something to […]

There Ain’t No Shame In Just Giving Up, And Walking Away

There Ain’t No Shame In Just Giving Up, And Walking Away

This has been coming for a while. My life, this year, has been a ride that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I’m not going to bother with details here because those aren’t really important. Every single time something else has piled on I’ve told myself that I’ll be alright and that I’ll make time for […]

Lydia Loveless – Real

Lydia Loveless – Real

My crossings with Lydia have been short. I once got a ticket to see Coheed and Cambria years ago before remembering Lydia and gang were in town on the same night (I took some stick for that one) and last years Holiday Hangout. But she’s always been on my stereo with her scratchy bar-country stylings. […]

Malcolm Holcombe at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – July 12, 2016

Malcolm Holcombe at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – July 12, 2016

For over 2 decades and 10-plus albums, Malcolm Holcombe has treaded right on the cusp of notoriety and infamy. One of my favorite quotes on Holcombe has always come from Steve Earle, who said he was “the best songwriter I ever threw out of my studio.” That follows the intensity and controlled chaos that is a […]

Bill Eberle- Matter & Time

Bill Eberle- Matter & Time

A couple of weeks ago I had never heard of Bill Eberle or his music.  Then I clicked a link on someone’s Facebook post and within 30 seconds I was a complete convert.  Over the past two weeks I spent time in Maine devouring this album at the beach, trips to the packy(That’s Boston speak […]

The Jayhawks – Paging Mr. Proust

The Jayhawks  – Paging Mr. Proust

Being a Jayhawks fan can feel a little bit like being stuck in the movie Groudhog Day. They’ve had more break-ups and make-ups than anything this side of a highschool relationship. I’m really glad they do. In a lot of ways the Jayhawks were the first alt.country band I got into. As a fan of […]

McDougall – Reaching for Some Light

McDougall – Reaching for Some Light

McDougall is one of those guys who I’ve always liked and who’s hung out on the periphery of my regular rotation due to some reason or another. He’s one of those artists that I’ve really and truly enjoyed in smaller doses but never really inspired a binge of listening to an album over and over […]
