Music Monday

I’m enjoying these recent new albums more than I expected to:

Cowboy Junkies – Renmin Park
Angus and Julia Stone – Down the Way
Damien Jurado – Saint Bartlett
The Bird and the Bee – Interpreting the Masters Volume 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates

The Cowboy Junkies album (MP3 version) is on special sale at the downloads store today. $3.99. It’s excellent. The Angus and Julia Stone album is surprisingly good. I wasn’t much of a fan, but once I got used to them, this album really grew on me. Same with The Bird and the Bee. At first I hated it. Now I rather love it.

I was hoping I was going to like the Damien Jurado album, as I’ve really liked most of what he’s done. And I liked it even more than I expected to.

You can check out (and download) selected tracks from all of these here at hype machine. Just put the band name in the search bar.

I don't have anything I can add to that, except to say my crush has only been since I was 20.

The new album is very good.
