I always been a fan of Outlaw Country... Maybe I need to make another thread I don't think I have seen a thread on Classic and Outlaw Country, maybe I just need to search. It wasn't until Monday Night football in the 90's did I feel like he went to mainstream.

Thanks to you Those Poor Bastards is now one of my favorite bands. I'm now downloading Lonesome Wyatt & The Holy Spooks - Sabella.

I find that I can only take so much of Those Poor Bastards at any given time. Their newest album Satan Is Watching is the easiest on the ears, but not by a lot. If you liked the solo Lonesome Wyatt album then you should also check out A Bitter Harvest which he put out last year with Rachel Brooke. The differences in their voices create a really interesting contrast and it has some really somber songs that are perfect for creating a brooding atmosphere.

Really? Man I can't get enough of those Bastard's vocals, I love the insane, dark sounding music. I've tried but I can't find another band quite like them.

Had a listen to a couple of the YouTube pieces in here. Really like the O'Death, sound like a faster Jim White with maybe a bit of Thin White Rope in there, ie very good. Not so taken with the Elliott Brood, although from memory I heard a tune of his/theirs a few years back and had a similar lukewarm reaction. Not terrible, just a bit ordinary IMHO.

I wasn't even aware that Jeff Bridges put out a movie last year :/ Maybe I should start watching TV again.... but I will definitely give this soundtrack a spin.

Different strokes for different folks. If it wasn't for Elliott BROOD I wouldn't be into country at all.

Default Son Volt?

Anybody heard of a band called son volt? I found them on the same blog I found Kate Mann, it's got some Jim White for download too, as well as a Hellwood album. An americana jackpot. I still havent downloaded everything I want from that site yet. One inconvenience though, is that it uses Rapidshare. Which we all know( or at least, I do) sucks.

I found that same blog a while back and had fun going through the archives. It hasn't been too active in a while though. Another site that's also been somewhat inactive but has an interesting archive is Good Music Stuff. I always check out Daytrotter, HearYa, and Laundromatinee for DLs of new artists (and some not so new). One could spend years going through the live recordings on archive.org

Son Volt is part of that whole Whiskeytown/Uncle Tupelo/Jeff Tweedy/Jay Farrar/Ryan Adams circle that some consider to be at the forefront of the Americana/No Depression movement. Wikipedia them for the family trees.

I wasn't a fan of Rapidshare either until I recently ponied up for a 30 day subscription. It was an entirely different universe - no waiting, multiple simultaneous DLs, etc. One could get really spoiled. If I ran across another site with a lot of stuff in the archives that I wanted I think I'd just pay the $6.99 (I think it was) for another month.

Savannah: are you getting over to SXSW this year?

I found all of the sites except for Good Music Stuff. That's ok though. I'm not really sure why americana gets classified as indie, it's been around longer than pop, and rock. I guess it's just different.I don't like spending money on computer stuff, but I'll consider the subscription. I've heard Uncle Tupelo, they aren't that bad. Influenced by Nick Cave, obviously. I downloaded a Son Volt greatest hits type album, I have yet to listen to it though.
