Monthly Listening Post - February/March 2009

Or whatever month it is. I really can't keep track anymore. Here's what I'm listening to:

Mark Olson & Gary Louris - Ready For the Flood (the long lost almost Jayhawks album I've been waiting for)
Phosphorescent - To Willie
Neko Case - Middle Cyclone
Miranda Lee Richards - Light of X
Ben Kweller - Changing Horses
M. Ward - Hold Time

Also some individual tracks worth seeking out: 'Aeon' - Antony & the Johnsons
'Take My Love With You' - Eli "Paperboy" Reed & the True Loves
'Are You Ready' - Catfish Haven
'So Far Around the Bend' - The National

A surprisingly busy and interestingly concert front is on the way for spring here in Upstate NY/NE PA, at least every place but Binghamton apparently. Ithaca has Josh Ritter & Gomez on April 1, Rhett Miller on April 11, and Neko Case April 20. Then there's The Dead reunion show in Wilkes-Barre on April. That will followed by the Snob's annual drinking and gambling binge in Las Vegas, just in time for the Kentucky Derby. Add in March Madness, Hunter Mountain's Summer Jam at the end of May and Bonnaroo, and the next couple months are full of enough diversions to keep my mind off my crappy job and the general destruction of our nation. Happy listening.
