Jon Bryant Bears His Heart and Soul with Twenty Something

Chicago – Canadian musician Jon Bryant has amassed a dedicated fan base through constant touring and the creation of beautiful, modern folk music, layered with rich textures and stirring vocals. In 2009, his critically acclaimed debut album, Two Coasts for Comfort, was the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Album of the Year in Canada. It was also nominated for “Best Folk Album” at the 2011 East Coast Music Awards. After some trials and tribulations, Jon Bryant is back with his latest creation, Twenty Something. The Nova Scotian folk artist bared his soul, pouring out every ounce of emotion from his broken heart, drafting powerful songs produced by Rick Parker (Lord Huron), Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run), and Grammy nominated producer Alex Newport (Death Cab for Cutie).

Fleet Foxes Mykonos
Mykonos is the third single from indie folk band Fleet Foxes, from their 2008 EP Sun Giant. It was released in the UK on January 27, 2009, by European label Bella Union; in the format of 7" vinyl as well as a digital download, and peaked at number 53 on the UK Singles Chart. The B-side is a live version of "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" from their debut album. On May 5, 2009, it was released in the U.S. on Seattle-based record label Sub Pop, with the song "False Knight On the Road" in place of "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song". An alternate version of the song, with a track length of 3:39, was released on the deluxe version of their debut album Fleet Foxes.

And some Roonesque commentary courtesy of allmusic.com:

Paul Rodgers' tribute to Muddy Waters is not a return to Waters' electric Chicago blues, but a continuation of the blues-rock of Rodgers' old bands, Free and Bad Company. Taken on those terms, Muddy Water Blues: A Tribute to Muddy Waters works only when Rodgers is matched with a good blues-rock guitarist. Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, and Gary Moore all play well, while Richie Sambora, Neal Schon, and Trevor Rabin all sound a bit lost; the rest, including David Gilmour and Brian May, fall somewhere in between.

I agree with this.  I own this too, great album, falls a little flat in the middle.

Well worth a listen IMO

An all girl rock band from Sweden, influenced by AC/DC and Motorhead. What's not to like?
