Let's talk music

Today is going to be a music post. I like discovering new (sometimes to me) music but it doesn't seem to get discussed *too* much in the online circles I travel in. But I do pay attention when it does. I thought I would periodically create a playlist of songs that I'm listening to, new songs I like, old songs re-discovered, etc. Don't know what the frequency of these playlists will be, or even if there will be interest, but I hope you guys get something out of them. Whenever possible I'll link to a playable version of the song but I won't load this post up with embedded videos. So, if you like this kind of thing let me know. Give some of the songs a listen too and tell me if you like any of them.

I am a huge fan of Rhiannon Giddens and if you haven't listened to The New Basement Tapes which features her, Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford and more singing the unused lyrics by Bob Dylan, you simply must. The documentary film about the process of making that CD is also fascinating.
