Joe Henry - Civilians
Supposedly more stripped down than his previous efforts this album I am hearing is an instant classic. Scott Register of Reg's Coffeehouse and the Coalitoin of Indepndent Music Stores says it is incredible and played great song off of it this morning on his show.
Oakley Hall - I Will Follow You
One of my favorite releases back in early 2006 was their album Second Guessing. This is their debut on Merge Records. It was produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol). Stream it on the Merge records site.
Mary Gauthier - Between Daylight and Dark
Gauthier just keeps getting better I am sure this one will not disappoint.
Jim Lauderdale - Bluegrass Diaries
Supposedly Lauderdale is going to release 3 albums in the next year. This is the first of the three. It was debuted on XM14 Bluegrass Junction to rave reviews. 2008 already looks like a good year.
