I'm sure I would write about music more if I had time, but I do read quite a few blogs about music. So if you believe in music then you probably don't need to be told about why you should check out the new CD from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. I have had the amazing pleasure of seeing them a few times in their hometown and I can assure you it is worth the long wait in line and the crowds. I put them on my list of "Essential things to do in New Orleans even if they seem touristy".
Anyhow, another blog that I read is the local blog ninebullets.net which is a pretty solid americana, roots rock, and alt country type blog. Every once in a while they branch out and review something off their normal tack and I will leave it to the guys over there to talk about this album because a) they've listened to the whole thing and b) I couldn't have said it better myself.
