Don’t get wrong, I love love love this project I have embarked on… but I definitely love it even more when I get to reiterate about bands that I have loved for awhile and feel aren’t as stupid famous as they should be. The two bands today are ones that deserve the whole world… well… according to my iPod and I.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. probably scooped up a few more thousand fans or so at SxSW and it’s no doubt just the beginning of what will be a kick ass career (even with the most ironic name ever … Everything is Illuminated, anyone?). They are fun and delightful and I was two seconds from posting about them right before this project took over. So I was overly excited to see they were playing SxSW and I would be able to spread my love of them after all
Listen and TRY not to think they are cooler than you.
Damien Jurado has sung me to sleep on more than one occassion… not the kind of music that you put to bore you to sleep, the kind that slowly rocks you back and forth and fills your dreams with awesomesauce. He has one of those voices that haunts and soothes much like Iron & Wine. Love, love, love.
