Weekly Roundup for April Seventeenth / run to the holler by the old trash pile

On this week’s roundup . . .

. . . a couple great songs from Louisiana, some folk, some angsty lo-fi indie rock, and some heartache.  Ohhh, the heartache.

Happy Monday.


The Deslondes – Muddy Water

Great news to start your week: these guys will have a new album due out 6/23.

Heartfelt, languid americana doesn’t get any better than this.


Hurray for the Riff Raff – Rican Beach

The Navigator is decidedly less country and folk-oriented than HFtRR’s previous stuff, but front to back, this is a very good record.


Elliott Brood – The Fall

Because we all need more Canadian alt-country in our lives.


Gaffa Tape Sandy – Water Bottle / Smart Dressed Guy

If the phrase “hardly art, hardly starving” means anything to you, then you’re in for a treat.

RIYL: Neutral Milk Hotel, The Thermals, good music, despondency


Adult Mom – Tenderness

And now, here’s something lovely and peaceful.


Justin Townes Earle – Faded Valentine

Mr. Earle’s whole catalog is worth checking out, but hard-luck JTE is still the best JTE.


Until next week, cheers.
