Gram Rabbit have a new CD out, 'Cultivation,', sequel to 'Music To Start A Cult To', and they did a show on KCRW's MBE. What a mixture - people have used 'Old West' and mentioned Jefferson Airplain, I'm reminded of the B-52's and there's sampling wizardery going on... You'll have to listen for yourself.
There's a chinees ho-down song at the end of the show!
Listen to the MBE show

T-Bone Burnett is an all-round musician, producer, band member in Bob Dylan's band it's real fun to see and hear him on this KCRW show singing material from his new Album 'The True False Identity'. I love the way he shows up at the KCRW studio with a sweater and tie... Palestine, Texas, is track #2 on the new Album.
Get 'T-Bone Burnett' for $3.94

The Boss pays his union dues
NPR's All Things Considered is streaming a track from Bruce Springsteen's 'We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions'.
If you go to the Amazon page, you'll see a video clip of the same song...
It's a much more energetic take then the Seeger original, with a zydeco accordion added to the party.
Listen to 'John Henry'

I like this quote from the Cincinati City Beat: "Although she is often compared to Joni Mitchell, Doiron's moody minor key whispers make Mitchell seem almost giddy"
Got this from 3hive!

She has a Neil Young Roadie!
I don't usually like the allusions to one artists when you are looking to describe another (although I have done so myself, here for example). But when I listened to the show Lucinda Williams recorded for NPR' All Songs Considered, I kept thinking - it's beautiful in so many ways - like a Neil Young show might be. The country/blues/rock/gospel and country again mixture, with great melodies, great voice. This show has been playing on my PC in a loop in the past several weeks.
And then I heard her saying one of her roadies works with 'Neil'...
Strangely, the CD 'Live @ the Fillmore' is not that great. I don't like her presentation - too coarse. 'World Without Tears' is better, with some of the great tunes she plays on the show like 'Ventura' and 'Three Days'.

BTW, I've udated my original Jolie Holland post so it is linked to some 'Catalpa' tracks, instead of the now dead link to the whole album...
