Weekly Roundup for August Fourteenth / a makeshift dream of follies, lies, and broken things

On this week’s roundup . . .


The Hill Country Devil – Glory / New Kind of Lonely

Hayden Karchmer is a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas.  He performs under the name The Hill Country Devil, and he writes pensive, lonesome, acoustic songs like the one below.

You can check out his old record here, and then join me in hoping for something new real real soon.

RIYL: AA Bondy, The Felice Brothers, good music, whiskey, heartache


The Tallest Man on Earth – In Little Fires

A cool little project, and a great little song.


Ryan Adams – Dear Anne

Yeah, Ryan Adams has random songs like this just laying around in his attic.

Google “48 Hours” or “The Suicide Handbook” if you want to understand why people make a big deal out of Mr. Adams’ unreleased back catalog.  (Hint: it’s because it’s astounding.)


Matthew Logan Vasquez – Tall Man

Just a quick reminder, this is still one of the great albums of the year.


Shakey Graves – And the Horse He Rode in On

Combine two EPs — Nobody’s Fool and Donor Blues — do a limited release vinyl pressing, and release.

It all makes for one unexpected musical treat called And the Horse He Rode in On.


Noah Gundersen – Bad Desire

4 minutes of sad bluesy goodness with a big chorus right here.

White Noise is due out 9/22.


Until next week, cheers.
