It's really funny about Jason Anderson, people went apeshit over his records in '08. I seriously can't stand the dude.

Seriously, very original picks here. I'm impressed with the uniquness over your taste. Good stuff.

Well, I've been a longtime fan/friend of his now, but every record that comes out seems even more magical than the last. It's funny you say people went apeshit over his records when only a few people even know who he is. :) I don't think Pitchfork has reviewed anything he has done since he called himself Wolf Colonel. I hope you'll listen to his newest album when it comes out because me and a couple friends sing on a couple songs.

I am becoming old and lame in my old age, but I still try (somewhat) to keep up with new stuff.

I definitely will listen to it then. I'll always allow artists extra chances to effect me. This is the case because artists I love often disappoint me with new releases.

Your blog looks nice, even so it would be far better if you’ll be able to use lighter colors too as a professional design. This will make sure that a lot more readers come to check it out.Informative post by the way!
