What getting older sounds like

If you had told me when I was 18 that in fifteen years I'd be listening to MULTIPLE bands that incorporate the use of a banjo into their sound, I would have laughed at you.

Fast forward to 2008 and here I sit, loving all of these new bluegrass, or alt-grass, revival bands...the stuff is just good for the soul. Lately, I have been devouring a band from Boston called Crooked Still. They have a brand new record out called, beautifully, 'Still Crooked' which I haven't picked up yet. But I still wanted to pass a couple of songs along...here is one of my favorites off of their 'Shaken By A Low Sound' album, which came out in 2006. Oh, and they do a cool version of the American folk classic 'Little Sadie'...which reminded me how much I love the Mark Lanegan version, so I will throw that up too. Enjoy.
