Perhaps my favorite bluegrass-style tune they do, here’s a live rendition of “Wichita” by Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings.
Gillian is easily one of the greatest songwriters of her generation.
"It’s so nice that we can all enjoy TV time together. No one is ever left to resentfully clean up after everyone in the kitchen."
Brand new album from The Morning After! High energy party band jams good for any occasion. Check it out!
Listen/purchase: Wonder & Fury by The Morning After
Another one of these debut Three Lobed collabs from earlier this month (you got the Little Black Egg Big Band jam, didn’t you?), kindly shared by the mighty NYC Taper. This one kicked off the show and it smoked. Bachman has an excellent new album out on Bathetic, of course, and Bowles has a totally killer LP on Paradise of Bachelors coming out later this year. They’re joined by Zeke Graves here for an all-too-brief set featuring some Appalachian droniness, a raw Jeffrey Cain cover and then a blazing version of Link Wray’s “Waterboy.” Hmm, this band should make a record. Maybe Three Lobed would put it out? [photo: PJ Sykes]
Alt-Americana? Experimental folk? Appalachian drone? Whatever the hell you call it, it’s out there and unlike anything you’ve ever heard. (Well, except maybe for early Megafaun.)
This is the best portrait I have ever seen of him. Completely encapsulates his attitude / persona these days.
