Wilco Americanarama Atlanta My Morning Jacket Bob Dylan Bob Weir

AmericanaramA, the joint "fest" between our boys My Morning Jacket, Wilco, and Bob Dylan is rollin' its way through the U S of A as we speak and the last four shows have had Bob Weir of Grateful Dead and Further fame sprinkling his talents amongst each bands set. Pretty f*cking rad folks.

I hope we ultimately get a few soundboards out of this deal because Wilco and My Morning Jacket are playing some seriously cool sets that certainly deviate from their standard (well, there is no real standard with either party I guess?) style.

Please someone explain to me how friggin' cool it is that Nels "Shred Nasty" Cline is using Duane "Skydog" Allmans famed gold top Les Paul for the "Dark Star>" "California Stars>" "Dark Star" jam?

Thank you mccordo for taping this, we all owe you beer.

This man continues to blow my mind to bits. It actually upsets me I wasn't keen to him before his passing. Lyrics, music, attitude - the dude has it all.

After way too long without new music from Athens, GA Futurebirds, they came out with a whammy of an album with Baba Yaga. As my buddy Tim correctly pointed out, the new album "sneaked in a laid back SoCal surf music feel to their Southern/folksy sound." Top to bottom it's a more than solid listen, pick up a copy and check these guys out on the road.

It's been a few weeks since Todd Frank posted his EXCELLENT piece on Jason Molina and guess what - I'm still hooked. The more of his music that I unravel the more I realize just how special this man was. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite lyricists of all time and the mans penchant for pairing his words to equally moving music is uncanny. If you are not a fan, dive in head first, his pool is deep.

Portugal. The Man The Earl Atlanta

We only have one set today for Portugal. The Man Week. This is definitely one of my favorite performances so far. "And I" streaming below is particularly good, nice and heavy in all the right spots, and they also cover their often-compared-to-band MGMT with a SICK version of "Weekend Wars." Like, seriously, it's rockin'.

I've also included a little video that the boys in Portugal. The Man did with some of the folks from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, it's pretty darn funny to hear John Baldwin Gourley talk trash to Glen Howard.

Evil Friends is out and it's the f*cking bomb so pick up a copy in between enjoying all the excellent Portugal. The Man tunes we've shared this week.
