Comments from world on a string

This band rules. There's also a good recent episode of Sound Opinions that talks about the Monks for a bit. Worth listening to!

Here for the Rossen love fest. He is one of the finest rock guitarists we have going. The way he makes complicated jazz chords and odd progressions sound so melodic and accessible is a real talent. I also can't get over some of his covers (aside from Grateful Dead). His take on Townes Van Zandt's 'Kathleen' is chilling.

I agree. I think as a kid my realization of the power and dynamic control of David Bowie's voice came when hearing the first "your eyes can be so cruel, just as I can be so cruel" part of Within You.

Can I be excited for it, and still really, really want another Mountain Man album?

This seems like as good of a spot as any for this -- Did anyone pick up anything good this past Saturday for RSD? I was fortunate enough to snag the last copy of The War on Drugs single, and a copy of The Count Five's re-release of "Psychotic Reaction." Unfortunately couldn't find the Nathan Salsburg/Bonnie "Prince" Billy release, but overall I'm happy.

Can they make improvements to their desktop application first? It's the pits! Mobile app is thumbs up, IMO.

Seeing them close a college show back in 2009 with Bleeding Heart Show is one of my fondest concert memories. That song gets me each and every time.

Not sure when the official release date is, but my copy of the new Wooden Wand LP came and I'm really excited to listen. 'Mexican Coke' has been of my favorite tracks released this year.

Putting in a plug here for Ecstatic Vision. I highly, highly recommend checking them out if they roll through your town -- one of the better live shows I've seen recently!
