November 25, 2010
Scott Foley

This time of year typically sees very little new music. It's generally about wrapping up, holiday music and year-end best of lists. I'll debut my Favorite Songs list on Thursday, December 9. This week, I did manage a handful of debuts, including a nice collection of Band covers by Garth Hudson and several special guests. Rachel Harrington's Celilo Falls revisits the promise of her debut CD. And I'll listen to anything Lambchop frontman Kurt Wagner puts out, especially if it's as good as his new album of duets with Cortney Tidwell, KORT.
