musical interlude

You have to have music for your summer and if you're looking for something good, allow me to make a few suggestions. Here's what's been in heavy rotation on the ipod lately:

Neko Case - "Middle Cyclone"
Noah and the Whale - "Peaceful the World Lays me Down"
Johnny Cash - all the American Recordings
Blitzen Trapper - "Furr"
Sequoyah Prep School - "Ghost Town"
Wilco - "Wilco the Album"

And if you'd like to hear the Avett Brothers perform 3 songs live for NPR, just follow this link:

Avett Brothers Live

That little concert is also available as a free video podcast on iTunes if you're into that sort of thing.

The 'less than three year old' enjoys his music too. He likes to sit at his mother's piano and bang out tunes while making up stream of consciousness lyrics about anything in his immediate visual environment. Apparently he also thought the black and white keyboard layout was a bit boring and decided to add some color when no one was looking.
