I only plug musicians I LOVE...
Follow the link to good music, and amusing black-and-white cowboyness:
(The music video for Josh's most recent single "Lillian, Egypt" off of his latest CD: "The Animal Years.")
I find all of Josh Ritter's music most inspiring right now. I have Golden Age of Radio, Hello Starling, and The Animal Years. Go to his website, and listen to the free downloads! You will love!
Just where it now lies I can no longer say
I found it on a cold and November day
In the roots of a sycamore tree where it had hid so long
In a box made out of myrtle lay the bone of song
The bone of song was a jawbone old and bruised
And worn out in the service of the muse
And along its sides and teeth were written words
I ran my palm along them and I heard
Lucky are you who finds me in the wilderness
I am the only unquiet ghost that does not seek rest
("Bone of Song" lyrics)
