Not even back a month from Coachella, and already I am itching for another musical themed road trip. Been plotting with a friend for the last couple of days about a pilgrimage down to Nashville in June to see Elvis Costello and Eddie Vedder on consecutive nights at the Ryman Auditorium. There is so much musical goodness in that sentence I can barely contain myself...but I digress. So while gleefully scouring the web for details about these shows I saw that Liam Finn(son of Crowded House founder Neil Finn) was opening up for Eddie Vedder on this current tour. It had been a while since I had listened the Liam records that I have, so I dusted off his latest 'Ill Be Lightning' and played it for the rest of the night.
I had forgotten how great it was. So young, so talented. And on this song especially, he reminds me so much of Elliot Smith. Just a beautiful track...enjoy.
