I thought I’d add a story I heard about M Ward’s break into the business. He had apparently been trying to figure a way into the scene, and he is a big Fan of Howe Gelb (Giant Sand, etc). He gave Howe a copy of his demo after a Howe concert, and Howe loved it. So much so that he added Ward to his label (OWOM), the album was called ‘Duet for Guitars #2′. Howe recorded some stuff with him, and Ward was also introduced to Howe’s circle (Calexico, Niko Case, Richard Buckner…)

It is certainly true that M wards work is worth trolling, as it is all as compelling as Post War. Of course all of Howe’s circle is worth trolling.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
