Robert Earl Keen – Paste Magazin Session

I recently resolved to start blogging again more often and regularly (the last post on this blog being from July 2016). In time I hope to be able to start writing reviews again, but for the start this is just a video.

What better way to do that than post this session from REK who has quickly become one of my favourite artists recently. Sure, there’s quite a bit of of talk on here, but the 3 songs REK, Richard Brotherton and Bill Whitbeck perform are plain fabulous, all in performed in an effortless and ┬álaid-back way.

Lyle Lovett : Step Inside This House

Everything about this is masterful, the song (by Guy Clark, funnily I couldn’t find a single version of this by himself so I am not sure if he even recorded it himself), the vocals by Mr. Lovett and the musical arrangement/accompaniment, especially the lap steel guitar. Not to mention beautiful. An ode to simple living, filled with music and memories.

Uncle Tupelo : Looking For A Way Out

I made this slide show to one of my (many) favorite Uncle Tupelo songs (from Still Feel Gone) a few years back. It’s not prefect by any means but I wanted to capture the feeling of living in small towns (in Texas in this case) and ‘looking for a way out’. Whether or not that is always the right way forward or not I am not too sure about, but I guess a lot of people can relate to that urge, I certainly can or rather could when I was younger.
