The theme for this month has been comfort in the familiar.
Iron & Wine's "Tree By the River" from the new album, Kiss Each Other Clean is just the right dose of sweet nostalgia.
"Calamity Song" by The Decemberists on The King is Dead makes me forget about the last few concept albums, and warmly welcome back the band I used to love. Bonus: REM nostalgia with Peter Buck on the album version!
In addition to these two albums, I've also been enjoying the new offerings from legends Gregg Allman and Wanda Jackson.
