I kinda dig Okkervil River. Never heard of these other clowns, though.


  1. I love Okkervil River! I also have an M.Ward cd and that's pretty good too.

    We first heard of Sufjan Stevens watching ACL one night and have been digging him ever since.

  2. Mos Def is pretty cool:

    "I start to think, and then I sink into the paper, like I was ink, when I'm writing I'm trapped in between the lines, I escape, when I finish the rhyme"

    also "Thieves in the Night"

  3. Matthew Lickona says

    Goodness. Thanks you two.

  4. cubeland mystic says

    Can you hook me up with Willie Nelson?

  5. Quite a line-up. Gotta find out about TBD – never heard of them; they must be really cutting edge! 😉

  6. I'd like to place my order for Ben Harper, Andrew Bird, Okkervil River, Elvis Costello, Mos Def and Madeleine Peyroux, please. And I wouldn't mind seeing Dave Matthews again, if it's not too much trouble 😉

  7. So perhaps a road trip for M. Ward/Okkervil River? Still plenty of time to line things up. M. Ward has an interesting new project with Jim James (the front man for a band recently on Austin City Limits that, if IRC, you deemed not road trip worthy).

  8. Matthew Lickona says

    Not road trip worthy. Right. How bout this: went right home and emailed The Powers That Be, only to find that the episode had already been taped. Just like the Okkervil River show has already been taped. Day late and a dollar short, story of my life…

  9. how far out do they record. is the whole season already recorded.

  10. Matthew Lickona says

    Sadly, they're winding it up this weekend. They should start up again next February. I'm gonna try to stay on top of it…

  11. notrelatedtoted says

    No love for the Avett's?

    Note: the first song is not one of my favorites.
