Default Crowquill 50.

Yes, i'm starting though organizing it took longer then I expected and i'm not too comfortable with the order so i'm only doing one now, and this one is a safe bet for 50.

50. Frank Turner "Campfire Punkrock"

Genre: Singer/Songwriter, Folk
Released: May 15th, 2006
Label: Xtra Mile Recordings
Tracklist:
1. Nashville Tennessee
2. Thatcher Fucked The Kids
3. This Town Ain't Big Enough For The One Of Me
4. Cassanova Lament
5. I Don't Care What You Did With Your Gap Year

This is the debut EP from ex-million dead frontman Frank Turner. I was (and still am) a huge Million Dead fan so I was looking forward to this, as it was being sent to me but didn't know what to expect, but I really didn't expect what i'd heard. The person who'd sent it to me said it was a folk album but it was weird going from him screaming and yelling and using weird and sometimes just plain bizarre metaphors and allegory to settled down singing, but it was a pleasant surprise because this was a very good EP.

Its most similar to Billy Bragg that I can think of. The lyrical topics range from politics, to frank placing himself in the shoes in others to poke fun at certain subjects or group. Its a very versatile EP even just in the five songs, you have a slow finger picked song like Cassanova Lament, to a fast paced song like This Town Aint Big Enough For The One Of Me and the upbeat protesty song Thatcher Fucked The Kids, which is my favorite on the EP.

Favorite Songs: Thatcher Fucked The Kids, I Really Don't Care What You Did On Your Gap Year, This Town Aint Big Enough For The One Of Me

49. Rosie Thomas

Genre: Singer/Songwriter, Folk
Released: December 12th, 2006
Label: Sub Pop
Tracklist:
1. If This City Never Sleeps
2. Why Waste More Time?
3. The One I Love
4. Much Farther to Go
5. Paper Doll
6. Kite Song
7. Songbird
8. All The Way to New York City
9. Say Hello
10. These Friends of Mine

This is probably my favorite Rosie Thomas, it features a number of singer/songwriters including Sufjan Stevens, Denison Witmer, David Bazan, Damien Jurado, and Jeremy Enigk (formerly of Sunny Day Real Estate). I never cared for Sufjan, Jeremy Enigk is fantastic and I havn't heard the others but am interested in checking them out.

Thomas has a beautiful voice thats enchanting with the music, I probably wouldn't love her music half as much if she wasn't from Seattle. Her music reminds me of that, and watership down for some reason, anyway shes most similar to Deb Talan that I can think of. Lyrically the album is for the most part kind of lame and straight up sappy theres alot of stuff like "Sometimes I cry when it's late at night and you're not there to lay next to me morning breaks and the sun warms my face how I wish it was you warming me" but luckily the music/vocal work makes up for it, though the lyrics can sound like something from a teenagers diary they can be very relate able at times despite the corny metaphors. This album is probably my favorite album shes released because its the most solid all the way through.

Favorite Songs:# If This City Never Sleeps, Much Farther To Go, Songbird

48. Daniel Johnston "Fear Yourself"

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Released: n/a
Label: n/a
Tracklist:
1. Now
2. Syrup Of Tears
3. Mountain Top
4. Love Enchanted
5. Must
6. Fish
7. Power Of Love
8. Forever Your Love
9. Love Not Dead
10. You Hurt Me
11. Wish
12. Living It For The Moment

One of the most influential singer/songwriters ever, influencing artists from Bright Eyes and Beck to Eels and TV On The Radio. Very underrated his music is hard to listen to sometimes the lyrics don't seem much if you just read them but when he sings them they really hit.

Catie sent me The What Of Whom and I liked it but didn't listen to it much I do more now. He has a high pitched, and very childlike voice, he also writes from that same perspective about rather dark themes. Its kind of hard to listen to just because of how emotional it is, i've yet to hear an artist who can sound anywhere near as painful as him.

Fear Yourself isn't as lo-fi as The What Of Whom but easier to get into, and it mostly deals with relationships but its a fantastic album all the way through changing from piano songs to guitar songs to full band songs. I

Favorite Songs: Love Not Dead, Syrup Of Tears, You Hurt Me, Mountain Top

The simple way to put it is if you like singer songwriters you need have given Daniel Johnston a decent listen.
