Good picking, singing, and songwriting by this Californian folk duo who have toured with Josh Ritter, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Over the Rhine. Can't think of a better album on a cool, fall day.

Three Days is one of the sexiest songs I've ever heard. His voice is so soulful.
I like Andrew Bird, but to be honest, I've been a bit ambivalent to his most recent albums. They're good but they don't have distinctness from one to another. This EP thankfully shook me out of this rut with its infusion of country sounds both original and adaptations, trading his...
I have a crush on Alela Diane. Hailing from Portland, OR, she’s a stunning storyteller, her songs painting gentle landscapes of love and nature. Her voice is lilting, both slick and scuffed, and is layered amidst steel strings and mandolin melodies. It's difficult to label her musical style, but...
In a year full of band with a lot of rah-rah wannabe folkiness ala Lumineers & Of Monsters and Men, Lord Huron takes a more (and appreciated) laid back approach. The songs are upbeat but quiet with a Graceland quality to them. A solidly pleasing debut.
This guy is not only talented but he is also hysterical! I'm not talking funny in like an Adam Sandler not taking it serious sorta way, I'm talkin' witty, wry and biting. His lyrics will surprise you, I have listened to a song many times and not caught the joke until the ninth or tenth listen....
There have been others, but Tracy Chapman's self titled album released in 1988 is still my favorite. The song "Baby Can I Hold You" was subsequently covered by several musicians and Chapman even did an unlikely duet with Luciano Pavarotti several years later. Other...
A beautiful album by legendary British folk artist Billy Bragg and the great alt-country band Wilco, with guest vocalist Natalie Merchant and previously unrecorded lyrics by Woody Guthrie. What else can I say?
With their jangly folk music, Page France has been one of my favorite underground discoveries in the past few years. Full of their characteristic ethereal writing and catchy melodies, this album may stand as their swan song as they have recently disbanded.
Very enjoyable blend of folk and blues, and help from Neko Case doesn't hurt.
