Guaranteed smile-inducer and toe-tapper--Lanigan's Ball. I thought that Christy Moore was the originator of this, but it appears to  have been the Bards:

Picked up a couple of CD's this past week.  The first is Ry Cooder's My Name is Buddy, a tribute to his fallen cat, which folds out into a lovely illustrated booklet.  He has enlisted the likes of Pete Seeger and Flaco Jimenez in this latest effort.  The other is a new CD by Mavis Staples,  We'll Never Turn Back, produced by Cooder, in which he and his son join her on the album.  Staples' voice is as strong as ever.  The songs hark back to the Civil Rights era with a sense that a certain amount of "redemption" is taking place to today, and that these events need to be brought to the fore once again.

There is a new Fountains of Wayne CD out.  Other than the opening cut, the overall effort seems very forced compared to their earlier works.  Musically, I would say they are still the premier practitioners of modern power pop, but lyrically, it was contrived.  If anyone has seen the movie, That Thing You Do   , with Tom Hanks, then you have heard Fountains of Wayne who did all the music for the fictitional band, the ONEders (later The Wonders)

I noticed some earlier posts on Matisyahu. I really got into him back in Dec of 05, when my ex-wife passed away.  It was really soothing.  He is a true believer and it is evident in his lyrics.  Sometime you can find comfort in the strangest of places.  I don't think he is too worried about people not thinking he measures up to Peter Tosh or Jimmy Cliff--he is in it to reach people that might not hear a message otherwise.

A friend of mine turned me on to Utopia Parkway and I liked it enough but didn't embrace it to the point of seeking out other releases. I'll check out their website in search of sample tracks of the new one.

Another great young band to check out is Nightmare of you.  There first CD came out a few months back.

After a couple of listens, every track on the new CD is gem...
