Shearwater – Well, Benjamin

Lila Nelson – Deadlines (my favorite Monday song by my favorite local singer-songewriter)

Ed Harcourt – Open Book (I like this CD, like other songs better than this one)

Masha Qrella – No Matter (lovely stuff)

Damien Jurado – Big Decision (so far, I like his first CD better than the new one)

Ida – Late Blues (really pretty song)


(*for Mark) Flaming Lips – Do You Realize

Keren Ann – One Day Without

Yo La Tengo – Nothing But You or Me

Clem Snide – Fill Me With Your Light (a more upbeat moment, practically rockin’ compared to earlier selections, reminds me of Cracker somewhat, I like this whole CD a lot)


Emiliana Torrini – Nothing Brings Me Down (light and sweet)

Wilco – Jesus, etc. (such a beautiful song! I love this one)


* Neil Young – Cinnamon Girl

Brazilian Girls – Dance Till the Morning Sun (this was an abrupt transition from Neil Young! kinda disco-y)

Iberis – Not Our Story Anymore (more pretty, floaty, nice steel guitar sound)

Iron and Wine – Freedom Hangs Like Heaven (from the folk section, definitely foot-tapping with a touch of that cool haunted sound)

The Duhks – Death Came A Knockin’ (oooh, this band is SO good! in folk)


Inara George – No Poem (another pretty tune)

Andrew Bird – The Naming of Things (quirky folksy mellow popish)

Michael Franti – Feeling Free


M Ward – You Still Believe in Me (love love love)(“timeless, uniquely American stories”)

M Ward – Fuel for Fire

M Ward – Four Hours in Washington


Heavy Trash – Walking Bum (Heavy Trash is Jon Spencer of the Blue Explosion with Matt Verta Ray – way cool blues country rock sexy twangy if you know what I mean)

Neko Case – Train from Kansas City

Nathan – Lock Your Devils Up (way cool toe-tapping clever folk)

Neko Case – Wayfaring Stranger (cause it’s a great song)
