Jared is working to make the Friday Musical Interlude younger and trendier, so please don’t tell him that I jammed out to Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors this morning on the metro (in my head, of course–I have the best interests of innocent bystanders in mind!), or that I listened to a very Neil Young-heavy playlist while cleaning my room last night. Fact: this 23 year old loves herself some old school folk music. But I try not to be totally untrendy by looking for new music that sounds like old music (is that sad?). So today I bring you a BRAND NEW song from someone who knows how to take cues from the late greats: Mr. Ryan Adams.
Ryan draws influence from old-school country-rock guys like Gram Parsons and Willie Nelson, and he’s got some awesome collaborations with Emmylou Harris for folk lovers like me. And I’m feeling a little Dylan influence on this title track from his newest album, Ashes and Fire. A little bit of country, a little bit of rock n’ roll (sorry, I had to!), a little bit of angsty musician edge.
