“That’s the sad thing with life;
People always leaving just as other folks arrive.”
(Number four in my not-quite-weekly series of recommended new releases.)
Let’s chat for a minute about the adorably kooky Mary-Louise Parker. (If you haven’t seen ‘Weeds’, you need to grab yourself the first series on DVD today.) She provides the little sticker quote on the front of this album. “If you love music and have a device on which to play it, you should listen to Josh Ritter.” Just another reason to love her.
Josh Ritter has a certain folky Dylan thing about him which hooked me in a few years back – though he’s been expanding that style with each album. He should always release albums in Spring as his songs seem to suit the season perfectly. Go find a musical device and give this album a listen – if not for me, for the lovely Mary-Louise.
