I absolutely love the Kevin Drew album. Definitely a favourite of this year. I just picked up the new Iron & Wine which is very good too. I need to get the new Stars and Beirut. It really is hard to keep up with all this new music.


I'm a little down on the Iron & Wine album, but I don't know that I've ever been a big fan of his music, outside of his collaboration with Calexico. On the other hand, I agree that the Kevin Drew album is excellent. Just loaded with catchy hooks throughout.


ok a few erorrs. no ok a few erorrs. no reracks during the turn, you didnt mention balls back after both made it. learn to play ten cup. and you didnt say anything about bounces being two!


Let me try this again. J's album is good. Really good. It's a love album about all the agnst and punishment we enurde. He has a broken voice like Neil's that evokes nuanced feelings otherwise not conveyed by lyrics or instruments. Unlike Neil, he's is a guitar player. He can pick a rythm and lead simultaneously that draws you to the mirror. Where you stand in silence wondering what you're looking at. This album has polish and depth. It carries an ebb and flow. It tells a story of love lost, fought, found and held. I listen to a lot of crap waiting for brilliance. This album percolates with sparkle and grain. I think he's onto something both personal and universal. This album reaches across the gap between the reclusive artist J's always been, to the audience he never cared to find.
