Hell, I don't care if you've taken a break from listening a bit or not, this is a solid record from any band. Being a Son Volt album makes it a lot cooler. To me, this is the first album I've heard from Farrar that seems to meld all phases of his output together. You have some garage rock that sound...

Damn, this one is a good one. I'm really digging it. Of course, Promise the World pulled me right in. But it really doesn't relent on the goodness. I'm on my 4th listen.

Man, the Austin tickets didn't last long. I finally decided to throw down for the trip about a week after being announced and they were gone. Houston continues to suck as a music city, so no show here. :( It's hard to believe it has been 20 years since Trace came out. It changed my whole musical lan...

I'm 3 months late, but it's cool to see this place. I've been running all about, so my internet wandering has dwindled. That said, hey everybody!

I guess what's weird is that even after being called weird, and I think grumpy as well, for expressing my opinion I'll still continue to purchase the products SV/Jay produces in the future and adding them to my collection, just like I have in the past. I don't think you're weird. I grew up with my ...

CXCW 2013...

Alright, for all you guys who can't make it out to SXSW in Austin, Couch By Couchwest is going on again this year. Just wanted to give you all a heads up. Videos from Two Cow Garage, Eric Ambel, Glossary and more have been posted. And, of course, shameless self-promotion...My folk-duo, The Wayward S...

Man, this song has gotten me ready for some new Son Volt! I haven't given this much of a damn about a new SV album since Okemah. Sounds great.

Press copies are out. I know a few blogs who have them and one of the guys on the site I still kinda run have one. I haven't been willing to drive to his house to pick it up since it'd be a 90 minute round trip and he's computer illiterate. However, all early word I've heard said the album is really...

I love me some Slobberbone and have recently started checking out Glossary, so I dig that they broke that cover out. My oddball thing is that I like bands that say they are heavily influenced by The Replacements, but every time I put on one of my Replacement records, I get bored quickly. It's just w...

Also, really happy to see Romney lose this thing. I wasn't looking forward to paying more taxes for less benefits to the nation, only more money for the rich.

I'm sorry, but this whole electoral college shit is archaic. As long as we're the United States of America and not just America, the electoral college makes sense. Each state gets a weighted say. People forget about the division we have state to state here. That laws differ from border to border. I...

Yeah, man...I was stoked to see Glossary do it. The guys at Ninebullets.net have been hitting everyone up. I've been watching every video to this point...a lot of cool stuff is coming up on there. I've been enjoying it. Definitely something I'll be doing in the future. If any of you guys are interes...

Yeah, the tour for Songs in a Northern Key was Centromatic opening and then backing Anders for the Varnaline set. I got to see them here in Houston, it was EXCELLENT. It got me into Centromatic, big time.
