If there is one thing that needs to happen in 2009, it’s that Gillian Welch
and David Rawlings need to make a new album. Sure they have been busy producing killer album after killer album, and guesting on killer album after killer album…but c’mon….we sometimes we need to drink straight from the well. It’s been almost 6 years since Soul Journey….in that time they have given us Old Crow Medicine Show to fill the gap, they have toured with Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin, indie darlings Rilo Kiley, recorded a song with Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiley) for the movie Bolt, made surprise appearences with She & Him (actress Zooey Daschenel and M. Ward), with the Decemberists, guested on Del McCoury, even Bright Eye’s albums, and toured themselves under the name David Rawlings Machine….hell seems like they have been doing everything but
making a new album. Well rumor is we may be graced with a 2009 Gillian Welch album…until that time, here be the most recent show of theirs I have to keep us occupied and remind us of their genius. Sound is a little iffy on this one, but a great boot none the less.
