No particular theme to my week this year, just songs and artists I enjoy, and I want to throw some love their way. Leading off is Josh Ritter, who, frankly, consistently impresses me. Some of his stuff took me a couple listens, but then it all clicked and... dang. He's probably my favorite singer-songwriter at this point.
There is still protest music out there. We just never hear it on the radio.
My brother gave me this CD. He saw Ritter perform in a record store. Admission was the purchase of a new CD. My brother gave me the extra after he and his wife both bought one. It's really grown on me. I've got a couple of his older albums too. He was just touring with Jason Isbell. I've seen Isbell twice but I've never seen Ritter.
Josh Ritter was at my friend's wedding. His wife went to high school with him. (Useless information.)
