FRIDAY FUN: SEAN'S 2012 FUTURE AS PREDICTED IN SONG

I did a little playlist shuffle on January 1st to get a prediction of how 2012 is gonna be. A musical version of Tarot cards, if you will.

1. Athenaeum – Flat Tire

2. Bare, Jr. – You Blew Me Off

3. Cross Canadian Ragweed – Burn Like the Sun

(Hmmm, seems like its going to be a rough start in the romance area)

4. REM – Every Day is Yours to Win

5. Big Star – You Get What You Deserve

(Well, there are a couple of rays of hope…although Big Star could go either way. I think I’ll take the positive interpretation.)

6. The Byrds – Glory, Glory
(Maybe I should take this as a sign I need to be going to church. The world is going to end, after all)

7. Drive-By Truckers – Why Henry Drinks
(A warning against even thinking about getting back with ex? Don’t worry…ain’t happening)

8. Hellbound Glory – In the Gutter Again
(Another warning against getting back with the ex, ’cause in the gutter is where I’ll end up)

9. The Smithereens – House We Used to Live In
(All right, I get it. STAY AWAY FROM THE EX! Point made. Can we please move on.)

10. The Flaming Lips – She Don’t Use Jelly
(Much like the song, I don’t know what this is supposed to mean)
(AIV Note: Me neither but it sounds uncomfortable. Like sex in the back of a Volkswagen)

11. Justin Townes Earle – Halfway to Jackson
(Great. More woman trouble.)

12. Material Issue – This Letter
(I’m gonna get all creepy/stalkery on someone? I’m embarrassed to say, it would be history repeating itself.)

13. Georgia Satellites – Six Years Gone
(Are we back on the ex again? Although, it was more like sixTEEN years gone. I guess I have to take what the music spirits have to work with.)

14. Paul Thorn – Tequila is Good for the Heart
(Why, yes…yes it is! Especially with all the woman trouble I’m gonna have.)

15. Drivin’ & Cryin’ – Preapproved, Predenied
(I guess I better not expect any pay raises. A nice warning for an election year.)

Overall, I guess same as last year. Romance is gonna be shaky, stay away from the ex, and don’t even think about getting rich. Could be worse, I guess.

SEAN'S LUCKY 13 OF 2011

Why 13, you ask? Well, it’s my favorite number and, conveniently, it is also the number of albums that grabbed my attention this year. Plus, I like the title of “Lucky 13” for my list.

13. Ryan Adams – Ashes & Fire. This is the album I’ve turned to all year whenever I’ve been in the mood to chill. Perfect for sitting back with a bottle of scotch. (Sound pretentious enough?)  On a side note, Ryan did a couple excellent covers of my music idol, Bob Mould, this year: Black Sheets of Rain (Live on Letterman) and Heartbreak a Stranger (Bob Mould Tribute Concert)

Ryan Adams – Chains Of Love

12. Foster and Lloyd – Its Already Tomorrow. This album out jangles The Byrds. The title track and “Lucky Number” are the best power-pop songs I’ve heard in years.

Foster and Lloyd – Lucky Number

11. R.E.M – Collapse Into Now. I doubt if R.E.M could have left after a better album, short of retiring after Automatic For The People (a valid argument). “Discoverer” may be their best opening track since “Begin the Begin” off Life’s Rich Pageant. “Uberlin” may simply the best song they’ve recorded in the past 10 years.

R.E.M. – Uberlin

10. Hayes Carll – KMAG YOYO (& Other American Stories). Hayes gets the most attention for his romps and stomps, but his songwriting really shines on the slower songs.  “Another Like You” is a cleaver give and take with Cary Ann Hearst.

Hayes Carll – Stomp and Holler

9. Drive by Truckers – Go-Go Boots. One of the things about doing these lists is you go back to revisit albums from earlier in the year that you got burned out on. Sometimes you realize they weren’t as good as you thought. Other times they sound even better on the second “first” listen. This is the latter.

Drive-By Truckers – The Weakest Man

8. Have Gun, Will Travel – Mergers and Acquisitions. Pretty much everything Autopsy said.

Have Gun Will Travel – Freightliner

7. Dave Alvin – Eleven Eleven. No better CountryRockBlues album released this year. Like his songwriting, Dave’s baritone is as strong as ever. How did I overlook reviewing this? Gonna have to rectify that after the first of the year.

Dave Alvin – Johnny Ace Is Dead

6. The Decemberists – The King is Dead. I’m one of those who never got into The Decemberists before this album. But, being a REM-head since the mid-80s, it is in my DNA to adore this one. “Down By The Water” another of my songs of the year.

The Decemberists – Calamity Song

5. Jason Boland and The Stragglers – Rancho Alto. A true country album in every sense of the word. If anyone is carrying the “traditionalist banner”, it’s Jason. This album is proof. “Farmer’s Luck” ranks with Mellencamp’s “Rain on the Scarecrow” as one the great songs describing the troubles of the American farmer. “False Accuser’s Lament” is a prime example of Jason’s vivid storytelling.

Jason Boland & The Stragglers – False Accuser’s Lament

4. The Damn Quails – Down the Hatch. See review

The Damn Quails – Me and The Whiskey

3. Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit – Here We Rest. Top notch songwriting, great band, great album. “Codeine” is one of my songs of the year, although “Go It Alone” might be the song that got the most play as it has helped me get through my separation and pending divorce.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit – Go It Alone

2. Hellbound Glory – Damaged Goods. Anyone from Nashville that calls themselves “Outlaw Country” needs to listen to this and then hang their heads in shame. Review is upcoming next week.

Hellbound Glory – You Better Hope You Die Young

1. John Moreland and the Dust Bowl Souls – Everything the Hard Way. See review

John Moreland and the Dust Bowl Souls – Christian Rock

Bonus: Jody Booth – Nashville. Perfectly describes the corporate music machine in 2011.
