Current Musings...

King Creosote & Jon Hopkins - who recently released the beautiful and haunting Diamond Mine LP -and are featured on NPR's 25 Favorites (of the first half of 2011).

Gillian Welch will see the release of her LP The Harrow & the Harvest (paired with producer Dave Rawlings), an album 8-years-in-the-making. She performs at Royal Oak's Music Theatre July 23.

No more White Stripes, recently divorced, Raconteurs and Dead Weather ostensibly in lowered modes of activity (at least not currently on tour) and singing along to "Seven Nation Army" as though it could hypothetically be a yogurt commercial... ...curious time for Jack White, to be sure - but Third Man seems to be the focus. (That, and helping Colbert become a deluded, if still charming, guitar god).
