Episode 48: aired 12.014.2011

WHO'S IN THE MOOD FOR SOME QUICKIES?

I thought I’d bang out a couple of pieces that have been floating around in my Google Docs account in various forms of incompletion and combine them into one post instead of just deleting them. Sometimes it’s hard to find something to say about every. single. cd you like, but I’ll usually at least give it a shot. These are those shots:

The Crooks – Lonesome, Rowdy and Restless
The Crooks are from Austin and Lonesome, Rowdy and Restless is an EP that’s intended to act as a precursor for an upcoming full-length. They have a classic country/western high lonesome sound that’s been run through a modernizing filter. The EP is well worth picking up for 3 dollars and I am looking forward to hearing this full-length.

The Crooks – Downtown

Justin Otto – The $7 EP
Justin Otto is a one man band out of Pensacola, Florida. The Seven Dollar EP is his debut release and you can get it from him for the surprising cost of 7 dollars. The EP is strongest when Justin is playing his original music (there are some odd cover choices on it) and tracks like “Where I Lead Me” and “Sun” leave me excited to see what he does on his debut full-legth scheduled for release sometime later this year.

Justin Otto – Sun

Farmer Not so John
Man, I’d never heard of Farmer Not So John before last month when my friend Beverly played them while guest hosting ninebullets radio. They put out two albums, Farmer Not so John (1997) and Receiver (1998), and they both prove that good music is timeless.

Farmer Not So John – Paper Thin

The Smithereens – 2011
At first. I was just gonna ignore this album. Then, after hearing NPR’s gushing review of the album I was gonna do a “What Not To Buy” post about it. In the end, I was able to muster up about as much passion and effort to review this album as it feels the band did to write it. I’d “try before you buy” this one if I were you.

The Smithereens – One Look At You

Cahalen Morrison & Eli West – The Holy Coming Of The Storm
Cahalen Morrison & Eli West come out of Seattle. The Holy coming Of The Storm really is a fantastic album full of that bluegrass/folk sound you normally hear at the county fair. Unfortunately, every time I sit down to write about the album I just can’t seem to come up with more than those two sentences. So, stream the album below and if you like it, buy it.


Jeremy Joyce – The By And By
This EP came to me via Reviewshine but you can download it for free from Jeremy’s website. Sometimes the EP is straight forward country rock and at others it’s kinda like a 50’s rock record with a little twang. I find it most interesting when it’s doing the latter.

Jeremy Joyce – 18 Wheels
