Hey everybody - sorry for the infrequency of the updates. I've been traveling for work, and working on getting house shows set up, and seeing shows, and biting off maybe just a bit more than I can chew. There are worse things, right?
Anyway, I wanted to drop by and post a few things that have been keeping me sane while I wait for the leaves to change (don't worry - a fall mix is brewing)! Let's jump right in:
I'm in love with the new album from Luray - the project of Shannon Carey, who is the sister of Sean Carey (of Bon Iver). She strings together soaring melodies, soothing banjo, and copious layers to create a fantastic fall soundtrack. This has been on many mornings for me as of late. Here's a beautiful single take video of the title track 'The WIlder'. Go get this album folks.
Also, Caroline Smith's new album will find its way to your ears shortly. I can't say enough about Caroline's talent - and this album will most certainly deliver. Sharing this one again - make sure to grab this on 10/8.
Nathaniel Rateliff's new album is absolutely breathtaking - and it's a wonder for the beginnings of autumn, Enjoy this video, and then go grab it.
I'll be dropping by with a true Autumn Mix soon - in the meantime, I hope to see you out at one of our house shows coming up. Come over to www.facebook.com/musicmeansfamily and check them out!
