Fuel/Friends Listening Party: new Josh Ritter (4/27, Denver)

ritter

Fuel/Friends is excited to be hosting an advance listening party of the new Josh Ritter album next Tuesday for happy hour at the Meadowlark in Denver!

So Runs The World Away won’t be out until May 4th, but I’m teaming up with the fine gentlemen at Gigbot host this opportunity for you to listen early, and enjoy some drink specials ‘n stuff while you’re at it. Come and hotly debate with me if Ritter is one of the most important songwriters of our generation, as I once postulated. I do love him so.

The Curse (live on Daytrotter) – Josh Ritter
[from their session released two weeks ago. I love how Ritter keeps tying together the idea of love with the vast unpredictability of the sea.]

Listen to another one of the new songs here, and the earlier version here.

  • As The National once spoke/sang, “Lucky you.”

  • To have 2 $1 PBRs or 1 $2 domestic… that is the question.

  • Do enjoy it Heather and co. I’m really smitten with this record. Maybe not his best, but right up there! I love how Josh brings you back through your record collection. At times you here Dylan, Cohen and Springteen, then a little sprinkle of Prine and Simon. Yet through it all he remains Ritter and may I dare say on his way to joining them all at the throne. A brilliant singer/songwriter and by far the best of his generation.

"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.
