This and That

Owl and Bear is currently posting live shows from Mark Lanegan, Jeff Tweedy, Low, Built to Spill (a little quiet, but includes a sweet cover of Eno's Third Uncle"), and Tortoise.

My friends Night Driving in Small Towns have put out their first CD, By the Roadside, which I'll review here soon. Influences include Rilo Kiley (and Jenny Lewis) and Gillian Welch.

Hey, Marty, thanks for the link to Night Driving in Small Towns.
The singing reminded me of the McGarrigle Sisters. Do you know them? They are a little more country, a little more folk, and a little more Canadian French/Irish but similar sort of high range singing drifting off into whispers.

I like it.

I also like the idea of this song space on My Space. We should create a poetry site on My Space with audios of poets reading.

Maybe there is such a place already?

I don't know. I'm sure there are audios of poets reading. I'll have to do a search and see. Glad you liked NDIST.
