Your Morning Rock/New Music Tuesday – March 4th, 2008 Tuesday, March 4, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, New Music Tuesday, Your Morning Rock.
It is most certainly a fine day in new music land. Wanna know why? It’s because the musical love of my life (alt-country edition) has a new one out today. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a new video for her on YouTube (except for an interview piece…which is after the jump) but I did find the lead single off of her Back To Me album. Ladies and gents…Kathleen Edwards….
All about the lovely Miss Edwards and more….after the jump
Kathleen Edwards – Asking For Flowers
Oh, how I’ve been waiting for this one. I first heard her debut album Failer on XM towards the end of my epic collegiate career. We saw her open for Guster in one of the worst examples of “opener that the headliner loves and 90% of the fans will hate” I’ve ever been witness too. If you haven’t heard Failer, you need to just go ahead and pick that one up. It’s an excellent, excellent album. Back To Me isn’t a shabby follow-up either, but Asking For Flowers is already getting the words “masterpiece” tossed around by magazines like Billboard. I’m excited enough to link you to an EPK for this one.
The Black Crowes – Warpaint
For their first new studio album in many, many moons it looks like the false review of this album for Maxim was probably the best publicity that the Crowes could have ever asked for. So let’s go ahead and give this one 2.5 stars so that we can be like the rest of the world.
Michael McDonald – Soul Speak
Whiskeytown – Stranger’s Almanac
The album that turned me onto Ryan Adams and crew while I was a wide-eyed high school senior in 1997. This time it’s getting a 24 track reissue with all kinds of out-takes and b-sides. If you don’t have this one already, it’s worth picking up.
That’s what I got for ya this week, as always, tell me what you’re picking up in the comments and lets discuss…
