    Let's face it, there's a lot more music to talk about than just what was the best of the past year. So, what are you listening to right now?

    I've been playing this a good amount in recent days:



    From Angel Haze's (no relation to Chet Sad ) mixtape Reservation.

    I've been revisiting The Roots' Undun lately. This might be its best song:

    I just finished Safety Not Guaranteed and I'm now playing this on repeat:

    Really wasn't expecting Mr. Duplass to sing this well! Bravo that man.

    I've been on an enormous Iris DeMent binge lately. I listened to Infamous Angel and the Way I Should for the first time yesterday, which made me give another listen to both My Life and Sing the Delta. So I basically listened to her entire discography except for her album of gospel covers in one day. Needless to say, I love her a lot, and it's hard to believe I only discovered her very recently.

    Glad to be of service!

    The version of the song used in the movie is actually played and sung acoustically by Duplass' character. It's really nice, you can find it on youtube (or even watch the film if you're so inclined Wink )

    I'll watch it eventually, I'm getting it now after the soundtrack. Didn't listen to the acoustic version yet, because it sounds like a movie clip, which qualifies it as a spoiler.

    I can't say I'm too familiar with his work, Glazo. I think Stephen has mentioned him in a very positive way in the past, and I know he's done some duets with DeMent. I would probably like him based on these indicators. I shall give some of his work a listen soon. Where should I start?

    On John Prine, I must admit I've listened to next to nothing of his, but lately I've been really into this John Prine tribute album from a couple years back. Name of "Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows: The Songs of John Prine." Just based on that, obviously a well-deserved reputation as a great songwriter. It's got My Morning Jacket (they covered "All The Best," my favorite song on the album), Lambchop, the Bon Hiver guy (I don't know if anyone here actually likes him, but hey, if not he's doing someone else's work), Drive-By Truckers, and I can't remember who else right now.



    And now I promise to listen to John Prine by John Prine.

    I've found Songza, so recently I've been listening to these playlists:

    Classic Christmas

    At A 90s School Dance

    And I've been on Help! kick recently, I've listened to it in a bunch of times.

    I am now listening to Solange's new EP True, per the recommendation of Lena Dunham on Twitter. Only two songs in but I'm comfortable saying this is pretty excellent pop. Very different from her sister too but certainly no less talented.

    You know who's underrated?

    Darren Criss.

    But also Jason Mraz in the sense of his critical stigma, not the idea that he's not financially successful.

    I am also a big fan of Darren Criss. I think he would be great at writing the songs for Disney films; Not Alone, To Have A Home, No Way could all easily slot into any of their upcoming titles.

    I haven't heard a song that made me feel so wonderfully depressed in a long time. The whole 'album' (it's not a proper album, it's a bunch of b-sides or something) is fucking amazing. These guys are Kurt Vonnegut with a guitar.

    I agree! He obviously grew up on Menken and Rice which is why I like his work so much. They're very similar. Have you heard his Disney covers? They're on YT and from before he became internet famous.
