Nothing sounds quite as good on a rainy day as country music. After our little adventure this morning Owen and I listed to some music while I made lunch. Here are the albums of the day:
Lucinda Williams, Happy Women Blues
Alison Krauss and Union Station, New Favorite
Gillian Welsh, Time (The Revelator)
Ryan Adams, Heartbreaker
Chris Castle, Hollow Bones in Monotone
Freakwater, Old Paint
Chris Castle is from my hometown. Here is a video from his first album (Hollow Bones in Monotone). I’ve listened to this record a countless number of times, and it gets better and better with every listen. (Owen like it too).
The Bottle Let Me Down, Songs for Bumpy Wagon Rides. I downloaded this off of eMusic this morning. Leave it to Bloodshot Records to record an alt-country album for kids. Makes me smile.
