Music notes for those of us not lucky enough to be at MerleFest on KGSR's dime:
- Today's KEXP song-of-the-day is "Exodus Damage" by John Vanderslice. It's a great song, first recommended on Texas in Africa by my attorney a couple of weeks ago. You can download it for FREE on itunes. Definitely download it - it's a great track.
- I really, really like the new Centro-Matic album, Fort Recovery. Especially the opening track. And "I See Through You" may be one of my favorite songs of the year so far. How to describe? Brilliant songwriting and execution. Ryan Adams without the drug problem. Pretty please can they play at ACL?
