Stories Don't End

I'm struggling with this band. I think that I want to like them but I just can't quite get there. Taylor Goldsmith sounds much too much like Jackson Browne, and the band has that SoCal Laurel Canyon vibe, but the songs just don't quite grab me. "Stories" is their third album. Jackson Browne's third album was "Late for the Sky." Nearly forty years later, I'm still playing "Late for the Sky." Right now I'm doubting that forty days from now I'll still be playing "Stories."

Maybe it'll grow on me...

Can't wait to get home where Bombino's 'Agadez', Chelsea Light Moving's self-titled debut, and 'The Velvet Underground & Nico 45th Anniversary' are waiting to be listened to.

"Kids" from the band's debut EP, 'Time to Pretend'. An interesting release but nowhere near the level of 'Oracular Spectacular' or 'Congratulations'.

RE: Listen to the river sing sweet songs

Oh, man, that new Eric Burdon record is AMAZING! I've loved the Animals since I was a kid and managed to snag both RSD 45s. But yeah, "'Til Your River Runs Dry" is a stunning album and definitely one of the best I've heard in the last year or so.

JJ Grey and Mofro -- This River

Eric Burdon -- 'Til Your River Runs Dry

Speaking of Eric Burdon, I also snagged one of those Animals RSD mono releases, sounded pretty nice. Also, Richard Thompson, Jason Isbell/Elizabeth Cook, Avett Bros/Randy Travis, Gary Clark Jr, Mike Cooley, Jimi Hendrix, all on vinyl (I think that I'm forgetting something here), and a pristine used vinyl copy of the Ramones "Rocket to Russia."

But missed the Dead RSD release...
