    Ditto on The Lone Bellow and Decemberists albums….and I still can’t stop listening to The Staves’ IF I WAS album produced by Justin Vernon, which has some of the most haunting, beautiful melodies and spiritually profound lyrics I’ve heard in a long while.

    Excellent list, Jeff! I’d also recommend “Josh Garrels – Home” and “Bill Fay – Who Is The Sender?”
