ALTROK Ordinals 35

BILLY BRAGG & THE BLOKES England, Half English (Elektra)
Jeff says: Billy (without Wilco) is still singing and writing about the common man, the unnoticed, the unaccounted for.

CONCRETE BLONDE Group Therapy (Manifesto)
Jeff says: Concrete Blonde have reunited (and it feels so good) with the original lineup. First new record in many years. You do remember the song "Joey", right?

GREAT BIG SEA Sea Of No Cares (Zoe/Rounder)
Jeff says: From Newfoundland, Canada. Have been making records since 1992. This is their 7th album. "a high spirited and richly expressive acoustic quartet who reinvent traditional Newfoundland music, lending it a powerful and resonant contemporary charge."
