a better reality than a concept
Donald Ray Pollock. The Devil All the Time
I'm not sure which turns a more harsh lens on Middle America.
Snoop Lion, "La La La"
Lee "Scratch" Perry, Cat "Scratch" Fever
Jonathon "Boogie" Long & the Blues Revolution, Jonathon "Boogie" Long & the Blues Revolution
Lee 'Scratch" Perry is the best soundtrack for getting a mango drink from the Smoker's Palace at 7 AM.
Franz Nicolay, Do the Struggle
One Night Stand in North Dakota, Dissatisfaction
Beirut, March of the Zapitec & Realpeople: Holland and The Flying Club Cup and The Gulag Orkestar
Elvis Presley, Dirty Dirty Feeling
I broke a mandolin string at Adult Music Club from rocking too hard. We played Fleetwood Mac and a reggae version of TLC's "No Scrubs" which is a better reality than a concept.
Swamp Dogg, The Excellent Sides of Swamp Dogg Vol. 1
Merry Clayton, Merry Clayton
This week is taking a toll on my blogging habit. I was wondering if a full teaching load (which hasn't even started yet) would bring an end to the arguably pointless detailing of every album to which I listen, but I'm soldiering forth. Look at all these jive-ass album covers! Where are you gonna see them arranged just so? Nowhere.
YOU ARE WELCOME!
