Cover Judging: Willie Nelson

The saying, of course, is don't judge a book by its cover. Over the years I've discovered a lot of great music by artists I didn't know by taking a chance on kick ass cover art. The other side of the coin is when artists who are generally considered to be exceptional wrap their art in truly heinous packaging.

This time I present: WILLIE NELSON

Good Times (1969)

 The Willie Way (1972)

Always on My Mind (1982)

Angel Eyes (1984)

Island in the Sea (1987)

Good news for people who like bad news

New album from Godspeed You! Black Emperor, 'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress,' is due out near the end of March. More details on the Constellation Records page.

February Vinyl of the Month: Pond - Man it Feels Like Space Again

Hey everybody! It's VINYL OF THE MONTH time again! This month our pick comes from Australian psych-pop group POND! Man it Feels Like Space Again is their sixth record. Some may know them because of their connection to break out Australian outfit Tame Impala, a band they share three members with, but Pond is a force in their own right, and this album is getting crazy great reviews everywhere!

Here's a video from the album:
