2004 or 1971?

Artist: Wolfmother



Album: Wolfmother EP (full length on the way)

I learned about it...: Another iTunes find - somebody's iMix that I liked.

Comments: Wolfmother is from Australia and will be releasing their debut full length shortly on Modular Records, if all goes well. My Morning Jacket is not in Wolfmother's league - but, I think this is what they were trying to accomplish.

M. Ward's latest

Artist: M. Ward




Album: Transistor Radio

I learned about it...: I noticed this one at the iTunes Music store. But I first heard of M. Ward at Radio K, and then borrowed an album from Danny.

Comments: His latest is on Merge records and it sounds like more of the same. That means it's really great. He's coming to The Turf Club in St. Paul on April 22.

Haven't heard of M. Ward? In the 90s he was in a trio called Rodriguez, who shared a member with Grandaddy. But since 2000 he's flown solo putting out three full length albums, including this one, Transistor Radio.
