    Recommend me some rock/alt-country

    Shearwater- The Golden Archipelago (Feb. 23, 2010)

    Loved Palo Santo but was really busy when I bought Rook and haven't gotten around to spinning it much since unforunately. will make sure to listen before the next one comes out and at the very least am looking forward to catching them on tour to support this release.
