DJ Rock The Monkey (aka Sir Chadwick and Lady Tracy) stepped in to fill the void this week, as the usual occupants of this slot were chasing wild turkeys across the rolling Iowa plains. A swell job they did too — feed your ears!
I feel like these headaches are going to bring me into the doctor one day and they will find a solidified rubrics cube in the center of my brain that is clogging everything up. I haven’t been able to put together a sentence normally in weeks.
so tonight was all about forgetting my skin
Patrick and I took a look at roots/Americana releases for 2009 this morning, with some great input from you! We only had time for 32 songs, though. Some key releases were not aired, but need to mentioned as greats from this year: Levon Helm’s Electric Dirt, Jason Isbell the 400 Unit (one of the best according to the Americana Music Association), Joe Pernice, the Wailin’ Jennys live album. Check the playlist to see which ones we did get to.
