Title: Misery Over Dispute Artist: Waxahatchee Album (2013): Cerulean Salt Submitted By: Truersound Comments: The things you pickup hanging around a record store
Title: Oyster and Pearl Artist: Amy Ray Album (2014): Goodnight Tender Submitted By: @philnorman Comments: Most of Amy Ray’s non-Indigo Girls solo work skews Hüsker-Dyke, but this new country effort is full of great songs.
Title: Єлена (Elena) Artist: ДахаБраха & Port Mone Album (2012): Хмелева Project Submitted By: hoosier buddy Comments: This project by two Ukrainian bands (DakhaBrakha from Kyiv and Port Mone from Minsk) began with joint rehearsals in the Dniester River canyon amid snow-white flowered trees, hills of red clay and restless spring birds. Khmeleva Project is an exploration of traditional Ukrainian music and instrumentation driven by a “boldly go where no one has gone before” sensibility. Take a trip on the ethno-chaos train!
Title: Crazy Artist: The Delta Saints Album (2014): Drink it Slow EP Submitted By: @popa2unes Comments: 9 mins of killer blues from their recent 3 song Noisetrade EP get it!
Title: Cozmina Artist: Otis Gibbs Album (2014): Souvenirs of a Misspent Youth Submitted By: @BoogieStudio22 Comments: Otis Gibbs’ new album, Souvenirs of a Misspent Youth, is my first of the new year. A top-notch set of ten storytelling songs. It was tough to pick just one song so I chose the first track.
Title: False From True Artist: Pete Seeger Album: At 89 (1989): Submitted By: @tincanman2010 Comments: The ‘uncle of modern folk music’ died last week, his combination of talent, humility and political stubborness unparralled. He wrote recorded this song in 1968 in traditional protest style, and reinvented it for his spunky, Grammy winning 89, at age 89. YuoTube tip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFLMpzIoq7s)

Title: Now You’re Defeated Artist: American Music Club Album: California (1988) Submitted By: toomuchcountry Comments: As I submit this, the Super Bowl looms just a few hours away. But on Monday, many will be licking their wounds. Seattle or Denver will be wondering ‘what if…”. Gamblers will be lighter in the wallet. Homeowners will be pissed at friends for having wrecked their place during SB parties. Corporate America will be distraught as consumers can’t remember products and services advertised in overpriced, memorable commercials. And New Jersey will again lose to New York City despite actually hosting the game. When all that defeat happens, I will feel bad for you…kinda.

Title: Glass Armour Artist: Laura Cantrell Album (2014): Title: No Way There From Here Submitted By: Simon www.beat-surrender.com Comments: Always being a huge fan of Laura Cantrell and her latest album is no exception, this track’s a co-write with another favourite Tracyanne Campbell of Camera Obscura
Title: Southern United States Artist: Leif Vollebekk Album: North Americana (2014) Submitted By: Mad Mackerel Music Blog Comments: A lovely slice of thoughtful, conversational, rambling Americana that wouldn’t have been out of place on an early 70s Dylan album.
Title: “Motel” Artist: Hayden Album (2013): Us Alone Submitted By: TheSecondSingle Comments: Great song from the consistently great Canadian singer-songwriter that I wish I’d heard before making my year-end list.
