One of the greatest things that has come about the last couple of years is the single singer/guitar player sitting behind a mic. BB said it best...the new age of Indie has gone more into this folk-twisted music that is so sad and wistful. I have no idea what to call it. The vocals are superb, and the feeling the artists are able to convey is almost like the early 70's writers like Townes or Neil Young, but with better recording equipment and less psycho drugs.
OUTSTANDING submission from Hugh Honey. The Antlers follow up to Hospice was a bit hard for me to get into, but I really dig Putting the Dog to Sleep. Those guys are so weird and sad, in a dark demented way.
I need to listen to some of these. Keep 'em coming.
