Having polluted my psyche with Charlie Daniel's right wing libertarian stoner rock I needed a steady diet of 71-73 Stones bootlegs and a lot of Folk Rock to get the taste out of my mouth ...
Ida - Lover Prayers and My Fair, My Dark
Beautiful records that surpass even their "Heart Like A River", which was my big folkish-acoustic-indie-rock (with a touch of VU) favourite from 2004. Gorgeous playing and singing not least on the wonderful cover of Anne Briggs' "Time Has Come". If America is producing music like this it is no wonder that the likes of the Unthanks and Trembling Bells struggle to trouble the scorers over there beyond a smallish enclave of Anglophiles.
Joy Kills Sorrow - Darkness Sure Becomes This City & This Unknown Science
If Mr-Ben-Takes-His-Trust-Fund-To-Oxfam indie folk was my number one pet hate of the last couple of years then Joy Kills Sorrow were the big antidote.
