Boys and Girls in America
By The Hold Steady, 2006
Blender magazine said of The Hold Steady that they “sound like the best bar band in the world,” and I would have to agree.
When The Sun Goes Down
By Langhorne Slim, 2005
This rambunctious, foot-stomping album has been cannily described as “punk-grass.” Perfect for a bad-mood day and essential listening for fans of the Avett Brothers.
By Avett Brothers, 2007
This is my favorite album of 2007, hands down. It’s completely addictive.
Rabbit Fur Coat
By Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins, 2006
Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley shows off her gorgeous voice on some twangier tunes.
Asking For Flowers
By Kathleen Edwards, 2008
Kathleen Edwards’ lyrics tell stories of flawed characters with sympathy, and her voice brings to mind a gentler Lucinda Williams.
