I've had a look because you're always going on about them, I will have a proper listen some time soon. I try to keep an eye on what you're listening to, it's produced some results: I like Field Mice, to mention one, and at the moment I'm constantly trying to scat sing like Ella Fitzgerald (she was just unbelievably good at that).
At work writing an assignment on risk management, so this is a nice distraction!
I always considered myself to be quite well informed and perhaps 'widely listened' but a) there is so much stuff out there and b) now it's just not the case. I think the only new stuff I've got in to over the last two years is Laura Marling (who I'm not even sure I like) and Conor Oberst - give him a go. I much prefer his stuff with the Mystic Valley Band than I do anything previous (save say 3 or 4 stand out Bright Eyes tracks).
Anyway, I've never heard of this chap or the album, but I'm sure it is better than some other artists I was recommended as being the new Dylan (Fionn Regan and Dustin Kensrue).
I will track it down and give it a listen mate.
Do you only post here? I kind of came here because FT is blocked at work and I needed news and match reviews etc.
Have you ever listened to/got in to the music of Hefner. Might be totally not your thing, but early Hefner I think is fantastic from a songwriting point of view. When I first got in to them I thought they were somewhere between Pavement and Kings of Convenience, but actually, they are (were) far better than either.
What about Mountain Goats, Hidden Cameras, Wave Pictures etc? I'm probably listing off bands here that were popular about 5 years ago!
Profondo Rosso you are about 12 years old, i don't know why you believe your opinion is so valid. From what i have read in your posts you have shown nothing to feel you deserve abusing my opinion, go home to mummy you kid.
