Pieta Brown
A very tasty indie band that my buddy Buzz from Greenvalve Audio recently brought to my attention.
Tracks 2, 5 and 13 are superb
Another fine CD by Elephant Revival
Very interesting female vocals
Tracks 1, 5, 6 and 13
Track 5 is worth the price of the CD
One of my buddies at work plays a mean baritone sax with this band.
Some fine female vocals, as well.
If you are ever in Newport, KY ... catch them live at the York St. Cafe
I recently heard Pieta live (opening for Richard Thompson). Good, honest stuff, and she autographed the CD that I bought at the show .....  ; )
Tracks 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12

Some interesting middle eastern music ..... very involving with the lights turned down low.
Tracks 1, 4, 7 and 10
A little more "pop" than my normal tastes, but enjoyable.
Tracks 2, 4, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14
There are two versions of this CD, a studio and a live set.  To my ears, the live CD is the one to have.
These guys (and the audience) are havin' fun.
Interesting mix of acoustic and electric instruments with some decent vocals.
Tracks 1, 5, 7, 10, 11

A really nice acoustic instrumental duo.  Not a bad song on the disk and well recorded, to boot.
Most of the album is a throwaway IMHO, but track 2 (Red Rocking Chair) is worth the price of the CD. Bravo !!!
Four masters of acoustic stringed instruments plus the lovely voice of Aoife O'Donovan.
Tracks 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11
When I am in the mood for some reggae jammin' ..... this is the CD.
An oldie, but goodie ..... not intended for reggae "purists".
