things i like

Monday, May 4, 2009

So I FINALLY got my copy of Bob Dylan's new album in the mail on Friday (woohoo!). I'm not a huge fan of all the songs but I would say the majority of the album lives up to the hype. His voice sounds pretty rough throughout the album, but he seems to know the limits of it and kind of speak sings his way through the songs, and it works. I'm drawn to the more bluesy tracks on the album, but I think that's just the kind of mood I've been in lately. All in all, I think this album definitely is worth buying...just give it a few listens and you'll be hooked!
It's All Good
Forgetful Heart

In other news, I've been turned on to the band Deer Tick. A friend listens to them and thought I'd enjoy their sound. Long story short; they're awesome. They rocked out at SXSW this year and have a new album dropping June 23rd, but their album "War Elephant" is out now and I highly recommend buying it if you enjoy the kind of Alt/Indie/Country sound. They will also be touring with some of my other fav groups Jenny Lewis and the Heartless Bastards. I'm sure that would be a GREAT concert.
