Best faves so far, February edition

So picking up where I left off, last month I had:

Shearwater, Animal Joy
Sharon Van Etten, Tramp
Mark Lanegan, Blues Funeral
Twilight Sad, No One Can Ever Know

Best stuff in February included:

Dirty Three, Toward the Low Sun...a wilder, hairier edition of Dirty Three's free-jazz-into-rock-into-folk thing, loving the first two tracks with their spinning-out-of-orbit violin and chaotic, cathartic drums...did a Blurt interview with Warren Ellis (plus little quotes from White and Turner) that will come out sometime later this spring in the print issue.

Kevn Kinney and the Golden Palominos, A Good Country especially the back end of this which turns less overtly country and more country-psychedelic, culminating in "Bird", which is just freaking great. I already posted my interview with Kevn and Anton , but if you missed it, here's the link.

Standard Fare, Out of Sight, Out of Town...abrasive girl-centric pop, second album, liked the first a lot, too. Review in pipe.

Guided by Voices, Let's Go Eat the Factory...first album in forever with Tobin Sprout, got some duds, but mostly super fun. Review in pipe.

Okay, so reshuffling let's say
Dirty Three
Twilight Sad

So far...could change.
