We were all over the proverbial board for this Episode of TMM. We previewed the new, Will Johnson-produced album by Austin Collins & the Rainbirds, as well as a pleasingly strong collection from Ken Will Morton. Fresh tunes from old friends John Hiatt and The Holmes Brothers played alongside less familiar names like the former Colorado band Tiny Television. Especially nice to hear a second solo offering from Dolly Varden frontman Steve Dawson, who tends to skew more pop for his Dolly-free offerings.

* Danielle Talamini, "Pack My Bags" The Road Rises (Self, 08)
* Backyard Tire Fire, "Learning To Swim" Good To Be (Self, 09)
