William Elliot Whitmore – Mutiny

Hailing from a horse farm along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, William Elliott Whitmore has developed an intense love and spiritual understanding of the land, which he flawlessly conveys through all of his records. (Listen and then picture this… he’s a WHITE GUY!)

The Decemberists – The Hazards of Love 1 (The Prettiest Whistles Won’t Wrestle the Thistles Undone)

You know em, you love em, and today they’re officially back. This is the opening track after the intro. My favorite? It’s a decent album, confused because of it’s original stage play intentions.

Cryptacize – Tail & Mane

Great track from this very distint trio under Asthmatic Kitty‘s wing.

The BPA – He’s Frank (slight retrun) feat. Iggy Pop

I passed on these guys a long time ago and, well, now I just feel silly. This song is off their latest, 2009’s I Think We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat.
