Scott Foley

With the holidays officially passed, I'm thrilled to return to plain ol' music on TMM. Whereas 2008 dawned with a yawn, with very few new releases heralding the new year, 2009 appears off to a promising start. Debuts this week from Eleni Mandell, Andrew Bird, Gourds, Ben Kweller, Graham Lindsey and Mark Olsen & Gary Louris. Before month's end, we should hear new stuff from a tribute to Robert Earl Keen, Lucero's Ben Nichols, Bon Iver, and more.

I also have great hopes to return some original commentary to this spot. Of course, these feelings are subject to change on a whim, so don't call the family just yet. For today, just enjoy the following fond recollection of this morning's Mix:
