Sunday Inspiration Bits

March 1, 2009


Not sure where this image came from… something I came across while browsing Image Spark. However, I felt it’s sentiments were quite appropriate for a lazy Sunday, so props to the owner, whoever you are.

The always charming Americana-rock goddess, Neko Case, appeared on Sound Opinions this past week in support of Middle Cyclone which hits shelves this Tuesday. Hear the interview at Sound Opinions.

Need some inspiration. Lovely Package has enough exquisite package design to keep you busy for a while. Especially love the alcohol and tobacco sections.

Jessica Lea Mayfield @ Kilby Court

February 25, 2009


Jessica Lea Mayfield is set to perform her bittersweet melodies this Friday, February 27 at Kilby Court in Salt Lake. For those of you who haven’t heard her, I’d highly suggest picking up her latest, With Blashphemy So Heartfelt. Since being discovered a short time ago, the 19 year old Ohio has opened up for such favorites as The Avett Brothers and The Black Keys. Doors open at 7… for more information head over to Kilby Court.

New Music Monday

February 23, 2009


2009 is turning out to be a stellar year for music. With new releases from standards like Dan Auerbach, Neko Case, M. Ward, Heartless Bastards, and Dead Confederate; as well as up-and-comers like Phosphorescent, Leopold & His Fiction, & Black Joe Lewis, there are plenty of good tunes out there to choose from.

Perhaps the record I am most looking forward to dropping the needle on in 2009 is Neko Case’s upcoming Middle Cyclone. Starting today you can stream the entire album over on NPR. Middle Cyclone officially hits shelves March 3rd.

Seeing as how The Black Keys are one of my favorite band’s going today, I was a bit skeptical when I heard Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach would be releasing a solo album. Luckily, Keep It Hid, which was released earlier this month, exceeds expectations, and stays true to the raw grittiness that is the Black Keys.

Released last Tuesday, Americana-esque, singer-songwriter M. Ward’s, Hold Time is being regarded as his best yet. With appearances from Zoey Deschanel, Lucinda Williams, and Jason Lytle, Hold Time’s a keeper.

Although Ohio rockers, The Heartless Bastards, have been doing their thing since 2005, they just recently showed up on my radar. Their third studio album, The Mountain, released on the highly esteemed Fat Possum label, takes the re-assembled Bastards to new heights.
– – – – –
Georgia based lo-fi rocker Phosphorescent’s, To Willie, is reminiscent of Willie Nelson’s own To Lefty From Willie. Although I haven’t had a chance to sink my teeth into this one, I am looking forward to kicking back and giving it a good listen to.
