Sylvan Esso is Amelia Meath of Mountain Man (who I think I saw with the Decemberists on The King is Dead tour?) and Nick Sanborn of Megafaun, a band I love dearly.

I guessed that Mountain Man were part of the Jagjaguwar family, descended from DeYarmond Edison, but a little Googling debunked that theory. Turns out Nick’s a Polyvinyl alum. Huh!

Anyhoo, I don’t know how these guys came together, but I like it.

"Give Me Back My Hometown" by Eric Church

If you haven’t listened to this album, give it a spin. (Sorry these tracks aren’t on Soundcloud.)

"…most of us live in our own hometown, with a bit of sex, a bit of drink, a bit of drugs, a bit of fun amidst the boredom and the drudgery, and what we’re all looking for is something to believe in.

And right now, the leading male exponent of believability is Eric Church.”

- Lefsetz

It’s well documented that I love this song, and I’ll say for the record that I love Miley Cyrus


Miley Cyrus - Jolene (Dolly Parton)

Miley would be a good candidate for a Rick Rubin produced album.

New track from Mark Kozelek’s forthcoming album. The title cites his friendship with Ben Gibbard, which he hilariously and heartbreakingly references in this song.

Great review of Benji on Grantland

Theme by Little Town
