Jonathan Byrd - Cackalack


Educational role of rock'n'roll must not be ignored. This time we non Americans will learn two new words. Try to translate this sentence: "Scuppernong from Cackalack". You can't? Than, obviously, you are not from North Carolina (Cackalack) and you have never been in the Scuppernong river valley where Scuppernong white grapes are growing naturally in coastal area. Those two words now have additional new meanings. Cackalack is the name of Jonathan Byrd's third and best album so far, and Scuppernong is the name of the best song of this album. ....I am lonely, darling keep me warm.........I am broken, darling take me home .......deep in the shade of shallow Scuppernong........I am restless, darling let me go.....

The Mountain Goats - All Eternals Deck

All Eternals Deck

He's got voice as already out of tune Bob Dylan went out of tune and he's nervous as Andy Roddick serving for staying in the match, but his words can be launched at the speed of more than 150 mph, more than Roddicks, or Ivo Karlovics serve. His words can hit you hard, right in your head, or, more dangerous, in your heart. His words can take you to any place in the world, can take you to the future or to the past. With him you can meet Quetzalkoatl and Charles Bronson, Liza Minnelli and Dinu Lipatti, Dennis Brown and Dana Plato....He is strong on words on this new album too. But he is not lo-fi anymore. It has it's good and it's bad sides. Some prefer that way, some prefer this way. I prefer any way John Darnielle choose.
