The Jayhawks just released their 11th album and snuck in a quick performance outside.
Not sure yet how to take this guy, but I think...I like it
A few years ago Billie Joe Armstrong teamed up with Norah Jones for an album of Everly Brothers tunes called "Foreverly".
This is not William Tyler's WGOM debut; last year Bootsy spun "Geography of Nowhere," a cut from Tyler's 2013 album Impossible Truth. He released his follow-up album, Modern Country, this June. Tyler wrote it in Oxford, Mississippi, and recorded it in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
For me the album evokes a contemporary perspective on Gram Parsons' Cosmic American Music, a genre that blurs country, folk, rock, soul, and bluegrass. Jazz is very much Tyler's addition to this mix – you can hear guitar greats Chet Atkins, Les Paul, and Bill Frisell in this track as much as Parsons' take on country-rock. Listen hard enough and you'll hear some Link Wray & Dick Dale, too.
Many thanks to Pepper for a great guest DJ/theme week (even if I didn't really understand what the theme was supposed to be).
Back to the daily dreck. Here's something from the weekend (not The Weeknd)

Not what you were expecting next, was it?
It's Tuesday, let your hair down.
