a really spectacular album
Maybe I've posted about this before, but one of my favorite albums of the last two years is "Loneliness Knows My Name" by Patrick Park
. It is REALLY good. A solid album from start to finish, and that's not something easily achieved.
I heard of him only because of NPR—I caught one of those "new music" interviews with him a year or so ago, and not only did he sound like a smart fellow, the songs he played were great. I bought the CD the next day and it was in heavy car rotation for months. I'm listening to it on my iPod right now, which is what reminded me to mention it. Check out a sample at the Amazon link above or at iTunes (or anywhere else, for that matter). Two thumbs up.
