New Music Blogging

I’m currently downloading some Dire Straits (what can I say? I’m a sucker for Knopfler’s guitar work). Anyway, he’s got a new album out with the inimitable Emmylou Harris called All the Roadrunning and it gets my early nomination as the lazy summer nights soundtrack. A perfect disc for sitting on your deck with a beer and some good friends or for taking a long, contemplative drive down some country winding road. Mark Knopfler’s guitar is as distinctive as always, and Harris’ voice is strong and haunting, per the usual. You can almost feel the breeze hitting your face as you listen. The mood is generally wistful and the songs are strong across the board. Highly recommended are the title track, “Beachcombing”, and “Donkey Town”.
