Episode 45: aired 11.10.2011


Come home from work. Let the dogs out and check the mail. Come in, make a whiskey and ginger, open up the packages and check out what cds I got that day.

That routine happens more often than not, week in and week out here at the ninebullets compound. Sometimes cd’s I’ve been waiting (or hoping) for are in the mailbox, while most times it’s bands I’ve not ever heard of. But there are the rare occasions where I get a cd I did not even know existed but, had I known, I would have been counting the days ’til it came. Such was the case when I took a pull from my Beam and opened an innocent enough looking envelope. As I pulled the cd out, I immediately saw the words “Eilen” and “Jewell” and none of the other packages mattered anymore. Did you know Eilen was releasing a tribute to Loretta Lynn? ‘Cause, before that moment I sure didn’t, but even before listening to a single note I knew it was gonna be awesome.

Butch Holler is the name of the Kentucky town in which Loretta Lynn was raised, so it only seems appropriate for it to also serve as the title of this tribute. Now, I’ll be honest. Like you, I wondered if Eilen could actually pull off such a tribute to Loretta. I wonder if Eilen didn’t know that would be the main question when, with the same kind of brash attitude that helped Loretta dominate the 60’s and 70’s country charts, Eilen selected one of Ms. Lynn’s more take-no-bullshit tracks, “Fist City”, to open the album. “Fist City” manages to maintain the essence of Loretta’s original performance, as well as the fun and flirty nature of Eilen’s music. It’s a marriage that plays itself out effortlessly through 12 tracks of Loretta staples, as well as a few the casual bystander may not know.

In the end, cover album or not, this cd is most definitely essential listening and almost a lock for my end of the year Top 10. Check it out!

Todd’s eighth studio effort, The Excitement Plan, contains Todd’s signature whimsical, half-drunk vocal deliveries along with pared down instrumentals and another host of misfits and outsiders. It was recorded over 2 1/2 days by Todd and producer Don Was with little rehearsal beforehand. The lack of rehearsal (I assume) helps lend to Todd’s slightly ramshackle sound.

There are plenty of people out there much better educated on the back story and discography of Todd Snider than I so I’ll leave it to them to be told, as I only discovered Todd with The Devil You Know. That said, I do think The Excitement Plan, possibly moreso than any previous album, really manages to showcase and display all of his gifts. You have the biographical tale of a 70’s-era Pittsburgh Pirate pitcher, Doc Ellis, who managed to pitch a no-hitter while on LSD, “America’s Favorite Pastime,” as well as the confessional of “Money, Compliments and Publicity”. There is even a duet with Loretta Lynn (who also shared in co-writing duties) “Don’t Tempt Me”, where Todd and Loretta are romantic combatants.

My favorite thing about The Excitement Plan is that it manages to be political without feeling preachy, which is a complete turn-off even if I agree with the politics.

Check out the album, it’s a blast to listen to.
