Lindsey Buckingham-Under the Skin...one the most prolific yet underrated singer songwriters and guitar virtuosos of the past 30 years emerges from the ashes of Fleetwood Mac with a stunning & stripped down collection of songs, maybe his finest work to date...here's his site, his myspace and a cool little page from amazon that lists some of his musical tastes.
Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins-Rabbit Fur Coat...probably my favorite female vocalist (not to mention I've had a crush on her since she was Shelly Long's girl scout daughter in "Troop Beverly Hills", this disc is just about perfect...from her amazing originals to her take on the Traveling Wilburys' "Handle with Care", this is definitely one of the most assured debuts by a female performer this year. Here's her myspace, her imdb page and her cool little cover...Enjoy.
Nellie Mckay-Pretty Little Head...you probably heard a little about how she got dropped by her label for the familiar "I don't hear a single..." complaint, but it's a damn shame for them b/c she is truly one of the most unique and vibrant singing and songwriting talents around...I've seen her play a few times and she never does a song the same twice. Here's a few links and a cool tune she does with Cyndi Lauper on her new album.
