i undressed someone’s daughter / then complained about her looks

I love the wrenching, tentative beauty in Joe Pug‘s hesitation.
(With a symphony orchestra a few weeks ago)

  • Such a great song writer. Whenever I listen to his EPs, I tend to pair this song with Sharpest Crown which is a terribly tragic song.

    I can’t wait for his new album The Great Despiser.

  • Between the awesome Downtown Chamber and Pug’s great song you have a wonderful music experience. Hope to hear more of this combination!!

  • It could just be that I was out of the loop before a few years ago, but does it seem like a lot of singer/songwriter and/or folk/rock artists are playing with orchestras and quartets lately? Is that a trend? Is anyone writing about it?

    I’m really enjoying it (particularly Josh Ritter’s orchestra-backed shows) and would love to be hearing high-quality recordings of more of those performances. Any chance you want to do a round-up of sorts, Heather?

    Thanks for the consistently excellent music and writing!

"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."

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.
