Man, great picks. I’ve been working on reviews for both the Waterless Hills and Steve Palmer albums, and they’re already highlights of 2020 for me.

WH also had a great pair of songs come out on a lathe-cut a few months ago, but you’d have to deal with it being a lathe-cut and all :\
Avatar 10:30pm Jeff Conklin:

Or you could listen to my archive where I played those lathe cuts ;)
Avatar 10:31pm Jeff Conklin:

For those who dont know, Garcia Peoples KILLED IT in Woodstock last night.

Drinking whiskey, using this as a soundtrack to Fantastic Planet
Avatar 11:05pm Saul Wright:

Drinking a Sierra Nevada gose and braising some celery.
  11:05pm Jeremy:

CC and I are listening to your show right now, Jeff... and we're trying to decide what we're going to eat?
  11:09pm fredr:

A great mix tonight, hands down! Thank you Jeff C
Avatar 11:09pm Yennifer:

I am drinking warm water and have been staring at Excel all day :/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm WR:

Hi all, g'night all. Jeff, have listened from the start, thank you for the soundtrack for me to finish weekend chores and decompress before sleep. Sleep, yes, some sleep would be good.
  11:15pm CC:

such a nice guitar!!!
  11:15pm Jordan:

Greetings from Westchester! Just got back from seeing Garcia Peoples in Farfield, this is the perfect vibe for what is always a very intense experience. How was the show in Woodstock?
  11:15pm Jordan:

Also, I am drinking water
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm WR:

Ah, Yennifer, Excel can be harsh, not necessarily to work with but for what you need to capture and enter into it. Hope you get where you need to be soon.. I dodged Excel today which means extra hour added to beginning of work tomorrow.
Avatar 11:20pm Jeff Conklin:

@Jordan: Incredible. Tonight was too, I assume?
  11:25pm Jeremy:

I love songs that tell a story!
  11:25pm Roach n Lil Nasty:

Greetings from Philly! Digging the jams, brother.
  11:26pm Jordan:

@Jeff: Oh yeah. One Step Behind was great as usual. Great segues in and out of Total Yang, I think, I can never seem to remember these things right after a show. That being said every time I see them I feel like they're getting closer to something. Idk quite what it is, but I look forward to finding out.
Avatar 11:29pm Yennifer:

@WR, yikes! I'd rather organize a record collection than work in Excel, haha
Avatar 11:29pm Yennifer:

This song is nice, Jeff.
  11:33pm CC:

That last song kind of reminded me of when I lived in Georgia back in 74/ 75... I loved Scott Boyer and Tommy Talton... Cowboy!!!
  11:34pm CC:

Beautiful!!!
  11:34pm steveL:

Kate Wolf. Such a voice!
