Mandolin Orange – The Songs I’d Love to be able to Write . . .
I’ve been having so much fun playing and writing music – and I’m really digging the NPR “Tiny Desk Concerts” – man, every damned one of them seems pretty superb.
Mandolin Orange is a new favorite – but watch out – there are so many superb bands I’ve never heard of before that are just awesome – just checking out all the Tiny Desk Concerts might get you through your lock down!
Big Thief – very interesting:
And a favorite of mine since her days in 10,000 Maniacs – Natalie Merchant:
And Nickel Creek – if you know where Newton, NJ is – you’d understand how I have some true hick / hillbilly in me. Hard to image all these years later:
And the Pixies! – OK – this could go on forever . . . . .
Art is Life – especially during these Covid-19 Times. Do yourself a big favor – turn off that News Channel and switch to the art and music channel – you will thank me for the suggestion!
