Some Kind of Best o’ 2012…

Hey kids, look it’s a best of list! A day late and a dollar short but here are some songs from 2012 that were pretty damn good. The studio versions of the songs by Rhett Miller, Dwight Yoakum and the dB’s are far better than these live cellphone videos, but that’s what’s online and they’re still ok. The full records from Eagle Rock Gospel Singers and the Eels both come out in 2013, which is pretty damn exciting. Hope you enjoy.

2.  Gillian Welch, “The Way It Goes”


3.  Shovels and Rope, “O’ Be Joyful”


4.  Rhett Miller, “This Summer Lie”


5. Brandi Carlile, “Hard Way Home”
