    I suppose this is somewhat on-topic, but right now I am literally listening to Alison Krauss & Union Station's, "The Boy Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn."

    Why do you come for me to wane?
    You can't even make your own corn grain
    Single I am and will remain
    A lazy man I won't maintain

    He turned his back and walked away
    Saying "Little Miss you will rue the day
    You'll rue the day that you were born
    For giving me the devil because I wouldn't hoe corn"


    I can actually imagine this conversation occurring between two LTHers.

    Check out Nick Cave. Oddly enough there is a Chicago based Nick Cave who does interesting things with fabric/clothes:

    And Jerry Douglas, the dobro player (who's actually put out more albums out in his own name than with Union Station). The entire arrangement was excellent - what makes it work is that none of them is trying to outdo the others. There's actually another clip of her singing the same song with James Taylor that's quite terrible, because they just couldn't mesh together. I only meant to make a general point regarding Alison.

    That said, if they ever release an album called "Alison Krauss Sings the Phone Book", I'd still buy a copy. Not that anybody uses the phone book anymore.

    If you like Lucinda, check out Lydia Loveless, who plays Lincoln Hall in a week. Boy, is her album good.

    I was just listening to Pet Shop Boys "Yes," which followed Gavin Bryars, which followed the underrated Pink Floyd "Obscured By Clouds."

    Does anyone have a Brian Eno recommendation?

    I like the Pet Shop Boys, usually in small doses as they're so sugary. Gavin Bryars is great, "Obscured By Clouds" is greater. I've recently found a 20+ minute version of 'Echoes' done by one of the boys from Ween. That's not bad at all.

    As far as Lucinda Williams and Lydia Loveless go, I would urge you to check out Cat Power (Chan Marshall) or just about anything you can get from Bloodshot Records.

    I love most things Eno (except post-80s U2). I'm definitely predisposed to like the glammy early stuff going back to the first two Roxy Music albums and then his mid-70s releases, "Here Come the Warm Jets" and "Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy". If you love Floyd you'll probably like the synth laden art rock of this era. I'd say his crown jewel, which also signals the shift to his quieter ambient period is "Another Green World". This album is essential. Atmospheric and moody, laced with superb textural musicianship and witty songwriting. I like the ambient stuff too, particularly his trippy collaborations with King Crimson's Robert Fripp.

    Also, you probably know this, but his fingerprints are all over many of the best albums of the 70s as a producer. Talking Heads' seminal albums "More Songs About Buildings & Food", "Fear of Music" & "Remain in Light", Devo's "Are We Not Men", and Bowie's Berlin trilogy. All of this some of my favorite music, period.

    Don't forget 1981's groundbreaking "My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts". Sampling, loops and rhythms that were not heard prior. Pretty much invented a new genre of music.
