Neil Young - Prairie Wind
Comes out September 27... begin the countdown! Get your pre-orders in on Amazon!
Devendra Banhart - Cripple Crow
I've been listening to this album on Rhapsody a lot since it came out last week. It is amazing. I'm not exactly sure why this music classifies as "freak-folk" (the term the critics are using these days), because there is nothing "freaky" about it. Banhart plays excellent acoustic-based folk with a few electric touches. A few of the songs are in Spanish, since Banhart is a native Venezuelan. He reminds me a lot of a less-depressed Nick Drake or a sweeter-voiced Leonard Cohen. Also, you've gotta love the cover. I think I'm going to have to buy it soon.
Also, the new Sufjan and the new Sigur Ros are on the way from Amazon, as is the Silversun Pickups' Pikul EP. And the Beck concert is tomorrow! And I'm getting Decemberists tickets SOON!Posted by smit2174 at September 18, 2005 12:00 PM | TrackBack
