I really really like BeauSoleil. I first caught them some 8 years ago at the New Orleans Jazz Fest and have listened to them since, including some of Michael Doucet's side projects.

No random 10 for me today; I have been listening to a 2-disk Django Reinhardt collection (called Djangology) on my iPod most of the morning.

And thanks for those tapes you made for Marty when he was moving across country - they cam in handy on our way to DC last weekend.

BTW - you've been tagged.

Giant Sand, "Temptation of Egg" Chore of Enchantment
Nick Cave, "Sweetheart Come" No More Shall We Part
Tindersticks, "Tied" Tindersticks
Friends of Dean Martinez, "Ripcord" Random Harvest
Vic Chesnutt, "Old Hotel" The Salesman and Bernadette
Taj Mahal, "Little Red Hen Blues" Beyond Nashville
Palace Music, "Old Jerusalem" Viva Last Blues
Neko Case, "Favorite" The Tigers Have Spoken
Pavement, "Jackals, False Grails: The Lonesome Era" Slanted & Enchanted
Kristin Hersh, "Clay Feet" Sky Motel

Bonus: The Magnetic Fields, "Papa Was a Rodeo" 69 Love Songs, Vol. 2

I was disappointed with Garden Ruin (from your list, George) overall. It'll be interesting to see where they go with the next one. I'm hoping for a retreat back to their more lyrical style.

Lots of good stuff for me this week. The Vic Chesnutt song is outstanding. Some of his stuff rubs me the wrong way, but then I really like a lot of the rest of it.

I'm with you on Garden Ruin--but the songs they played off it live were really good, so maybe it's just a vibe thing.

True. Saw them last fall at the 9:30 Club in DC for the first time ever. Joey Burns is incredibly talented. I had no idea just how good he is. Huge, shimmering guitar riffs. Unbelievably talented guy.
