In a somewhat continuation of the Folk-y/Sting-y/Acoustic mood I have been in lately,  I have some more music I wanted to share.  I was pretty stoked with Old Crow Medicine Show’s Wagon Wheel, and am now equally stoked about Angel from Montgomery, which I learned was a John Prine cover from a recent tribute album.  (Rollo&Grady just put up “Lets Talk Dirty in Hawaiian” covered by Those Darlins.)  I guess recommending John Prine is like recommending Steve Goodman or Tom Waits (many people have heard of that person and probably know a song or two), but if you don’t know a lot of John Prine, a couple great jems include Dear Abby, Angel from Montgomery, and Spanish Pipedream.

While I was satisfied with this great cover of the Paul Simon song Graceland, it wasn’t till another post about the best songs of 2010 that I really investigated The Tallest Man On Earth.  Definitely check out King of Spain.

Too folky? Rollo Grady also has a link to a recent Black Keys appearance on KCRW.
