Fly Fishing Music – Rounding Up Unusual Suspects for 2016

| January 12, 2017

STOP LISTENING!

It’s almost time to stop listening, and start talking about some unusual music that kept me going in 2016. This isn’t the official final FINAL list, but who’s getting a final spin before the list comes out tomorrow.

  • Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – Skeleton Tree
  • Wilco – Schmilco
  • Bob Weir – Blue Mountain
  • Drive by Truckers – American Band
  • Kings of Leon – Walls
  • Pretenders – Alone
  • The Robinson brothers releases – Chris & Rich individually
  • Lucinda Williams – Ghosts of Highway 20
  • Jim James – Eternally Even
  • Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool
  • Listening is done to these two – Stuart Cohen / David Bowie
  • Mudcrutch – II

 

What to LISTEN for in 2017

I am still thinking about a band called The Boy Who Died Wolf from the 2016 releases. And we have Ryan Adams coming back strong in 2017 with a new release in February. The rest of the music world?  They still play coy little cat-and-mouse games with their releases, as they lick a finger and hold it up to the economic wind before releasing anything.

I think it is a safe bet there will be a lot of “protest music” coming forward in the next four years, just as we had after the 2008 economic depression (that is still here). Time does wear down the opposition, doesn’t it?!

Tune in tomorrow!
