jug band

i got so busy over the weekend that i didn’t get a chance to post the drawing i did for friday’s drawergeeks. i present to you, the mullets!


the subject was rednecks, but i think mine came out a little bit more hillbilly then redneck. i’m actually a big fan of jug band music. there’s a wonderful earthy energy to it all. big fan of the banjo too.

in the spirit of music, this feels like a good time to list what my ten favorite albums that came out in 2007 were. they may not have been the best albums, but they were the ones i found myself listening to the most often. listed in semi-particular order, with no linking because linking takes too long.

  1. Sunset Rubdown – Random Spirit Lover
  2. Radiohead – In Rainbows
  3. Arcade Fire – Neon Bible
  4. Bloc Party – A Weekend in the City
  5. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Baby 81
  6. David Crowder Band – Remedy
  7. Modest MouseWe Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
  8. Kings of Leon – Because of the Times
  9. Deas Vail – All The Houses Look The Same
  10. Travis – The Boy with No Name

if your favorite album is not on there, it means i did not hear it or it’s number eleven.

    I didn’t know there was a big hillbilly redneck difference. This is quite a fancy illustration regardless. :) Good music picks too!

    My favorite of the week, no doubt. Loved it. What, no Mika on your music list???

    thanks sarah! yeah- i’m not sure if there is. i always saw hillbillies as more jolly then rednecks, but maybe that’s just because of their silly name. i mean how did that come about.? some one was billing a hill one day?

    thanks, bryan! uh… mika’s #11. ;)

    amanda- yeah! their last album took some growing on me- but generally those are the ones that i really attach to.
