Modern Girl Goes Old School

Are you a fan of Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music? How about the current garage rock scene? Well, if you like both of these styles--anybody?--then you should check out Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs' new album "You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying." It’s modern music that feels like it could have been performed a century ago. I like it. Read the AMG review here.

Listen to You Can’t Buy A Gun. (buy album).

Speaking of the six-disc Harry Smith Anthology, which I may delve into in a later post, here are two tracks from the distant past for your listening enjoyment: King Kong Kitchie by "Chubby" Parker (1928) & Pennys Farm by the Bently Boys (1929). (buy album).
