Truesounds – Spring ‘09

Man, that cover makes my neck itch just looking at it! Here we have our quarterly Truesounds compilation. Featuring music of the mostly newly released persuasion. As noted in one of the comments of an earlier post….with Flameupload, you have to wait a minute for the downloads to appear. Here be the tracklist:

1. Steve Earle – White Freight Liner Blues
Off his new ode to Townes Van Zandt album aptly titled Townes. A fine collection of tunes I must say, and Steve’s best album in years

2. Iris Dement – Big City
well, there seems to be alot of cover albums/songs being released this year, so I thought I would throw this excellent Merle Haggard cover on here to show how it’s done. Off the 1994 Merle Haggard tribute album Tulare Dust

3. Todd Snider – Stuck On A Corner (Prelude To A Heart Attack)
If you listened to that Marilyn’s on K show then surely you know the story behind this one. Off last years Peace Queer EP

4. Deano Waco – Box Store
Surely you watched the video of this 3 posts down….right….Off the free and good album Deano Meats The Purveyors (look three posts down!!)

5. Slaid Cleaves – Beautiful Thing
I think Slaid is being a tad cynical and sarcastic in this song….well he brings it back around at the end. Off his latest Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away……it’s good.

6. The Gourds – Country Love
Funky little song off their latest Haymaker!

7. Tim Easton – Stones Throw Away
“Girls who drink whiskey can charm you out of your mind”….Love that line, off his latest album Porcupine

8. Scott Miller & The Commonwealth – Appalachian Refugee
Well I’ve already espoused my love for this particular song…..I had to include it on here. Off his latest For Crying Out Loud

9. Doug Paisley – We Weather
Off his latest self titled debut

10. John Doe & The Sadies - The Cold Hard Facts of Life
Cover of the Porter Wagoner classic off the newly released collection of classic country songs Country Club

11. The Fox Hunt - Hang Me
Off their latest album titled Americas Working Hard So We Don’t Have To, expect a review of this album sometime soon

12. Gurf Morlix – She’s A River
Buffalo’s finest and producer extraordinaire Gurf Morlix returns with an album of his own this year called Last Exit To Happyland….it’s good…..this song is a good example of why it’s good

13. Easton Stagger Phillips – She Was Gone
Alt Country “supergroup” so to speak consisting of Tim Easton, Leeroy Stagger, and Evan Phillips of The Whipsaws. From last years One For The Ditch

14. The Deep Dark Woods – Nancy
Off the newly released Winter Hours

15. The Wood Brothers – Loaded
I think I talked these guys up last year….do not recall….anyway I’m still digging it. Off their 2008 album of the same name

16. Richard Shindell – Get Up Clara
Cool song from folk legend Richard Shindell. Off his latest Not Far Now

17. Old Crow Medicine Show – Tennessee Pusher
Off last years album of the same name, those boys sure do love to sing about drugs

18. Son Volt – Dust of Daylight
Jay Farrar & Co. are back with an incredible album titled American Central Dust due out in July

Effortless country crooner Justin Townes Earle is back this year with another album of throwback country goodness titled Midnight At The Movies

The Felice Brothers also return with a new album titled Yonder Is The Clock

21. Phosphorescent – Reasons To Quit
Did I mention a lot of folks are putting out tribute and cover albums this year? Well this is off one of them titled To Willie, which is….you guessed it, a tribute to Willie Nelson. Pairs great with Chuck Prophet’s album from last year Dreaming Waylon’s Dreams

22. Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit – Cigarettes and Wine
