I dj'd yesterday morning, and i have to say that Willie Nelson has returned to my personal listening rotation in a big way. His new album, teaming up with Asleep at the Wheel, is really excellent. Classic western swing songs. My toe is still tapping.
As if this wasn't enough to get you listening to Willie again, then there is also the new Phosphorescent release, To Willie. In the image of the classic To Lefty, From Willie, Matthew Houck does his darndest and turns out a really good collection of Willie songs. I always thought that Phosphorescent was like a really really good Palace Brothers / Will Oldham cover band (and I mean that in the best way possible), but its nice to see them branch out a bit more by covering Willie (I know that sounds weird). Anyway, Phosphorescent is a good band and this album follows suit. By the way, you can see Phosphorescent at the Duke Coffeehouse on March 26th.
More Willie please.
