Fin De Semana! 8-1-14

Posted on

This is easily one of my favorite of Johnny Cash’s concept albums. His voice and Pete LaFarge’s songs were a perfect match. The tribute album looks great, except, hmm… couldn’t they have gotten at least one Native American artist on it? Were the 1491’s busy?

Dangerous Meta always has a bunch of cool/interesting links (including this blog sometimes)

Not quite culty or western, but this is the best takedown so far of this summers most inescapable bad song.

Bad culture comes from garbage music. Saving Country Music has been talking about this for a while, but this is probably the definitive piece on the degeneracy at the heart of mainstream country.

What I’m Listening To This Week

You should have been listening to Jason Isbell now for a while. Southeastern was hands down the best album out there last year, one that history is going to appreciate more than all the fancy, rigged awards shows did. Anyway, here’s Jason Isbell breaking up a fight and it’s better than the entire Keith Urban catalog. THIS is what you should look for in your entertainers, smarts, decency, and realness.

What I’m Drinking

Those fancy sodas from Starbucks. What? The ginger ale is good! Sue me.
