Any suggestions?

Since I have this blog at my disposal I may as well use it.

Does anyone have any musical suggestions for me? Lately I've been leaning more towards things with an acoustic sound, with a little more emotion, but it varies by feel. I'm open to anything you suggest and will at least give it a listen.

All my love,

"[A]coustic sound, with a little more emotion..."?

Yeah, I've been into the acoustic stuff a bit lately too.

My new favs are Sufjan Stevens (seven swans or Greetings from Michigan is great)and Iron and Wine (Our endless numbered days & The Creek Drank the cradle)
Other good ones are:

Damien Rice - O

Bruce Spingsteen - Nebraska (I'm not a Springsteen fan at all, but nebraska isn't your usual blue-collar New Jersey stuff, it's more of what he played when he was an aspiring dylan in Greenwich Village)

Another GREAT album I've come across recently that isn't acoustic, but I can't stop listening too is The Postal Service (Give Up). TPS is a side project from the lead singer for Death Cab for cutie, but it's so different and so much better.

And of course there's always Dylan. I just got the New York (Acoustic) sessions for "blood on the tracks".

Let me know if anything looks interesting and I'll burn you a copy.

I like the way this Chris Potter thinks. :)

As for the other Chris, feel free to copy whatever you think is good. I can always use more good music since most of what I hear today on the radio is complete garbage.

Dave Klinker actually turned me on to the Postal Service about a year or so ago and yes, they are quite good.

He also got me started on Jimmy Eat World freshman year of college. While I wouldn't suggest their albums to anyone now since they are overproduced and have sold out big time, I would suggest you take a listen to their album "Clarity" It takes a few listens but is a great album. I can remember exactly what part of campus I was one listening to each one of the tracks.

I know this is an old post, but if anyone is still reading:

1. I am really liking the Postal Service too.

2. I have recently come to appreciate The Decemberists (5 songs & Castaways and Cutouts are pretty good)

3. Wilco "A Ghost is Born" is pretty enjoyable too

I don't think any of this is cutting edge new-as-possible stuff, but it is pretty chill and entertaining.
