Let’s talk music…

The White Buffalo

Your editor needs a conversational distraction. There are other stories to tell… but the music chat is needed. There’s a lot of good stuff.

#TheWhiteBuffalo   I’m still getting up to speed on him.  He’s nominated for an Emmy this year for his tune from Sons Of Anarchy.  Melodic, melancholy, upbeat, a bit solo Vedder-ish.  Real like Sturgill Simpson.  This new album is a winner.  He has a very worthy PledgeMusic campaign worth getting in on… support!!

#Rush #R40 – live.  This band rules.  SO on their game at the Irvine show.  2nd to last show of the tour.  Precise, funny, musical, Lifeson is so underrated – the guy is a monster.  Peart is Peart… the professor.  Geddy – bass, keys, vocals… Top notch.  Fantastic set.  Looking forward to the live DVD and disc.

New albums that need more listening but I know are very good — Jason Isbell, Emmylou/Rodney, Indigo Girls, Wilco.

New #FaithNoMore is blistering.  Live in Santa Ana they pummeled.  Make no mistake, this band shoves everyone aside – the real deal.  Glad they’re back.  Exact can be said for #L7 (without the new album, yet…)  Live, the ladies were awesome.

#StevenWilson (of Porcupine Tree fame) has a new solo album from earlier this year.  If you like Rush or the precision of Tool (without as much blunt force), his new album is great.  Saw him live for the first time – stunning.  And quite witty.

#KaceyMusgraves stands tall.  Exceptional 2nd album.

#Garbage … very much looking forward to the live show of the 20th Anniv (?!?!) of their debut.  Live, they are mighty.

#SilversunPickups new tune continues their outward push.  Live show in Santa Ana in September.  They never disappoint.  If you’ve never seen ’em, get a ticket before it sells out.  You won’t regret it.

That’s it for now.  Oh, if you haven’t picked up the #RobertPlant album from last year, do yourself a favor and indulge.  One of his best.

Updates soon.  Onward and upward.  Make it so.
