It is now 3:37AM and I can't sleep to save my life...time to bring in the big guns...yes, I will now put on Josh Ritter's 'Animal Years.' I LOVE this record...and that I am counting on it to put me to sleep is in no way an insult...quite the opposite actually. It's like the musical equivalent of a security blanket.
Since I am up, here are a couple of my favorite JR covers. His sublime take on Modest Mouse's 'Blame It On The Tetons' and an incredible version of the Springsteen classic 'The River.'
