Drive-By Truckers, Q-Tip, & Jessica Lea Mayfield

Tomorrow I’ll be headed back to the Hoosier state for some quality time with the friends and family. I conveniently scheduled the trip back to coincide with some shows I desperately did not want to miss, including Drive-By Truckers’ stop with The Hold Stead as part of their Rock ‘N’ Roll Means Well Tour. Pretty psyched for a chance to see these guys again at my old stomping grounds. Head over to the print shop and check out the poster I printed for the show.

Perhaps one of the most innovative rhymesters of the nineties, former Tribe member Q-Tip delivers another phenomenal release with his latest, The Renaissance. It’s been a while, but good to see Q back in full form. Head over to the Q-Tip Myspace page for a sampling of the goods, as well as read Pitchfork’s review of the album here.

The latest artist to pop up on my radar is is the peculiar Jessica Lea Mayfield. Her mid-western drawl, coupled with melancholic guitar playing leaves one with the chills. Mayfield’s first release, With Blasphemy So Heartfelt, was produced by fellow Ohioan, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Coincidentally, Mayfield sang on The Black Keys’ latest, Attack & Release. While she certainly can stand on her own, Mayfield has found herself in good company appearing not only on Attack, but on tour with Avett Brothers. Blasphemy is a must have for 2008.

See for yourself.
