Not much to report when it comes to new releases.  Save your money for the next few weeks, with gems from Bright Eyes and other indie darlings waiting to hit your ipod.

The one spectacular release has been receiving buzz from all sorts of media and word of mouth: Barton Hollow from the Civil Wars.

I had the pleasure of seeing them at the Hotel Cafe in December, and it was, without a doubt, one of the best live acts I had seen in 2010.  Joy Williams and John Paul White possess a chemistry unlike any other duo I can think of.  Their folky acoustic sound can put one to sleep on one track, and be the perfect road trip device the next.

Check out the album live streaming here via Spinner, and see what I mean.

Then, buy Barton Hollow and have it forever and ever.
