Might have gone a bit rogue tonight. There's a Bob Marley song with some nice slidey guitar in it, so I played that. And Calexico played Echo & The Bunnymen's Killing Moon at their show, so I played that. And I played the very psych-border vibe of Dirtwire, and a cool song called Cowboy by Palo Santo, and an Australian band called The Mountains, played them. And Mary-Elaine Jenkins and Tori Forsythe and a new one from Julia Jacklin and that Sun Kil Moon song, Carissa, about his cousin. And a whole heap more.

This was fun. The great cliches of rural american music: factory closures, no good cheatin', "i done a crime and will be hanged", "troubles I got - you have no idea mate", "this town is fucked, i'm leaving" and the classic "all my problems are solved by drinking to excess". As well as few songs about significant weather events and a couple of warnings that war is bad and love is a bit tricky.
