Looking For A Safe Investment? Then Buy the New Deer Tick CD

I have been playing the new Deer Tick CD, Divine Providence, virtually non-stop for the last few weeks. When I eventually make my list of the best albums of 2011, I think the choice will be between this and St. Vincent's Strange Mercy for the top spot.

What does Deer Tick sound like? Imagine Paul Westerberg singing for Uncle Tupelo

I know, right?

It will be pretty high up on my list too, Dave. It's good stuff!

I haven't heard the St. Vincent yet, though I'm sure it's pretty good. She seems to get better as she goes. I'll have to get busy and listen!

Without having heard St. Vincent yet, I'm leaning toward Other Lives' "Tamer Animals" right now... but I've also been enjoying some stuff by Steven Wilson, Younger Brother, Radiohead, Tommy Keene, My Morning Jacket and others. All in all it has been a pretty nice year for music!!
