GILLIAN WELCH / DAVID WAX MUSEUM / THE HEAD & THE HEART

Good afternoon and thank you for reading.  You have many choices to make for your web reading and I’m thankful that you chose to spend these next few minutes with me.  Blah, blah, blah…

I’m as big a fan of three guitar and a life of crime or the old sad songs as anyone around nine bullets but sometimes I need something a little different. Maybe it’s a Sunday morning where I just don’t want to get out of bed or a Tuesday evening when work has been too much and I’m exhausted and want nothing more than to sit on the couch and sink in.  These three records are for those kinds of times.

There are common threads between these albums,  male/female harmonies, unique instrumentation, literary quality lyrics, and most importantly Essential Listening status.  Enjoy.

There’s a damn good chance you’ve heard Gillian Welch before.  There’s also a chance you’ve heard her latest album The Harrow & The Harvest, it’s been out for several months.  But if you haven’t here’s your chance to correct your wrong.  There isn’t anything groundbreaking on TH&TH, it sounds like Gillian Welch, which means it’s comfortable, calming, and awesome.  When I heard Gillian and David interviewed on NPR I heard them call it 10 different kinds of sad.  The only complaint I have is that they could have made it 12 or 13 kinds of sad.  It’s Essential Listening, silly.

Gillian Welch – Dark Turn Of Mind

The David Wax Museum is a three piece band.  Two years ago they turned a bunch of heads at the Newport Folk Festival and went from small time in the New England scene to big time across the US and Europe.  I’m talking big time by folk band standards. Everything is Saved is filled with enthusiasm and infectious attitude, two things you wouldn’t normally say about a folk band. There are also moments that can only be described as gorgeous.  Listen and don’t be afraid to dance a little.  Listen to “Born With A Broken Heart” and” The Least That I Can Do” and tell me it’s not Essential Listening.

The self titled album by The Head & The Heart is my favorite debut of 2011. I don’t generally listen to pop music and calling what The Head & The Heart do pop music is almost unfair but I don’t know what else to call it.  It’s not like the pop of Katy Perry or the indie pop of whoever sings that song about pumped up kicks.  Their album has an earnestness and depth that most musicians their age are shying away from.  Every song is catchy as hell and when I first found this album I was guilty of playing it twice back to back.  It might not be everyone on Nine Bullets cup of tea but to me it is Essential Listening.

AROUND THE WEB IN 5 LINKS OR LESS:

It’s Friday and you probably don’t want to work which is totally understandable so we’ve brought distractions:

  • All the fellas in Lucero talk tattoos at Tattoo Artist Magazine.  Would you allow Ben to jam a needle in your arm after a show?  I’m pretty damn sure I wouldn’t.
  • The music Gillian Welch makes is as comfortable as your favorite hoodie.  Here’s an article about the making of The Harrow & The Harvest.  Read it.
  • NPR is more than just the radio.  They have a shit ton of killer content on the web.  The Tiny Desk Concerts are one of the best.  Here’s one from one of my favorite new bands The David Wax Museum.  And yes, that’s some animals’ jaw bone she’s playing.
  • Music In The Hall is one of the cooler things that happen in Oxford MS.  Local bands and folks coming through town sit down and play stripped down.  It’s like MTV Unplugged but better.  Here’s Patterson Hood & Jay Gonzalez playing a few numbers.
  • Are you familiar with this Lucero song?  I’m not but I want to here it again and again.

Alright, now get back to work.  It ain’t five o’clock yet.

NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 22

It’s time for a new ninebullets podcast. Immediately you might notice that I’ve stopped naming these by the month they were released and going with the more common numbering of the episodes. I am doing this cause I’ve not been so swell at getting these out monthly so I thought going to the numbering system would work better. This will also enable me to do more than one in a month should the opportunity to do that arise.

With that said, let’s talk about the new show. Following in the footsteps of the radio show 2 weeks ago I decided to do a “some of the best of the first ½ of 2011” show that would feature some of the songs that I didn’t get to on Ninebullets Radio. The show features a track from Shane Sweeny’s upcoming solo album, The Finding Time as well as tracks from two heavily anticipated albums from the likes of Gillian Welch and William Elliott Whitmore. The show is rounded out with awesome songs from 9B faves such as Austin Lucas, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Grayson Capps, Frank Turner, Jason Isbell as well as new found fave Damion Suomi.

As always, if you like what you’re hearing on these podcasts, tell your friends about it. Post about it on your Facebook wall. Tweet about it. These bands are all pretty small so every new ear their music find counts, and you can directly assist them in that effort by telling people about this podcast and others like it. Now….on to the tunes:

01. Jami Lynn – SweetThing
02. Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside – Poison Milk

DAVID RAWLINGS MACHINE: A FRIEND OF A FRIEND


The title of David Rawlings’ debut “solo” album, A Friend of a Friend, may be the most appropriate album title since Raw Power. A perennial sideman, Rawlings has most notably backed Gillian Welch though, if you’ve ever seen the two perform, you’re aware of just how colossal a misnomer it is to describe Rawlings’ role as “backing” anyone. More aptly, Rawlings has performed alongside Welch, contributing aching, lonesome harmonies and devastatingly beautiful guitar to every one of Welch’s releases to date. You’ll also find Rawlings behind (or beside) Ryan Adams, Allison Krause, Emmylou Harris, the Wallflowers, Norah Jones, and a host of other artists found on a Starbucks Americana Sampler near you. I suppose one could describe Rawlings’ career as being “under the radar,” but anyone who picked up the O Brother Where Art Thou Soundtrack should be well acquainted with David Rawlings.

A Friend of a Friend may not propel Rawlings to AAA radio stardom or expand his audience too far beyond those who already shout themselves horse every time he steps up to perform Conor Oberst’s “Method Acting” – which morphs into “Cortez the Killer” on A Friend of a Friend, much the way it does in most of Rawlings’ performances – during Welch’s sets, but something tells me Rawlings didn’t make this record to take the “next step” in his career. A Friend of a Friend doesn’t play at all like some calculated career move, but rather a collection of songs Rawlings felt a connection with, and wanted to record, so he did. My best guess – and this is only a guess – is that’s exactly what it is. It doesn’t take much in the way of imagination to envision Rawlings picking and singing these tunes backstage before a gig, or in his living room some Sunday afternoon. There is not a single contrived or inauthentic moment on A Friend of a Friend and, in a sad commentary on the state of the music industry, that’s quite a feat.

Sonically and structurally speaking, the album is essentially another Gillian Welch/David Rawlings album, with Rawlings handling lead vocal duties this time out. Welch is all over the record, as are a number of Rawlings friends (and friends of friends, one assumes). And while A Friend of a Friend meanders at times, the high points – “Ruby,” “It’s Too Easy,” and “Bells of Harlem” among them – are more than engaging enough to compensate for any momentary lulls.

A Friend of a Friend is going to end up on my year-end Top Ten list and I would not be the least bit shocked to see it on a number of others, as well. If nothing else, I sincerely hope this album inspires Rawlings to stand front and center a little more often.
