Well, it seems like out little annual slowdown leading into the holiday period has arrived somewhat.  While we’re getting a bit more than usual, I can sense the slowing.  And sense I have little to give you on this day, how about a simple question?  What are we  (meaning YOU) listening to these days with more than passing interest.  For me, it is Adam Green and Binki Shapiro‘s debut release on Rounder Records, and the new Lily & Madeleine album.  It’s actually quite difficult to get either one of those out of the player, whether in my home or in the car.

I recently ran across The Paper Kites, which I have yet to get their new album (soon to be rectified).  On the Rock side, I’m still playing a lot of the new album from The Black Angels (Indigo Meadow, which I’m looking for on vinyl LP).

So, what’re you listening to that seems to not want to leave your player?

  1. I have that Black Angel disc as well but that’s been out for several months. The only new, relatively unknown, disc/band that I’ve been listening to is the new album from the band Earthless, “From The Ages”. The album has four tracks (only one tracks under 10 minutes).
    This band has no vocals but, if you like hearing Hendrix/Iommi/Page sytled extended riff-based jams this might be worth checking out. If there is such a thing as ambient hard rock/stoner rock, this would qualify.

    1. Every Earthless album is very good. I’ve got them all. Try Dead Meadow, it’s in the same vain but with a little more vocals.

      1. If you are even a mild Tull fan and like surround music, I think you’ll like Benefit. Steven Wilson has done another great surround mix!

    1. You should try their EP released earlier this year. However, I’m giving the step up this year to Adam Green/Binki Shapiro’s debut Rounder release.

  2. Kingbathmat – Overcoming the Monster
    Anna Calvi – One Breath
    David Bowie – The Next Day Extra
    Jethro Tull – Benefit (just getting started)
    America – America (AF)

  3. For 2013 I have not really found any new artists that got my attention but I have spent considerable time with:

    Ghost Brothers of Darkland County – John Mellencamp, T-Bone Burnett and Stephen King
    Let Us In Americana, The Music of Paul McCartney – Various
    Bang Bang Boom Boom – Beth Hart
    Seesaw – Beth Hart , Joe Bonamassa

  4. Frightened Rabbit “Pedestrian Verse”. Released in February and still listening. Hands down my favorite record of the year.

  5. I finally picked up a copy of the Season Two soundtrack to Twin Peaks at Amoeba today. I expect it will be in heavy rotation for the immediate future.
