One of the great things about hosting house concerts is that we're listening to a lot more music and putting a bit more effort into discovering new music. Here are a few of the things we came across in 2011 that we really like:
Brigitte DeMeyer -- both Red River Flower (2009) and Rose of Jericho (2011)
David Wax Museum -- Everything Was Saved (2010)
Eilen Jewell -- Queen of the Minor Key (2011)
Matraca Berg -- The Dreaming Fields (2011)
Elephant Revival -- Break in the Clouds (2010)
What new music do you recommend?
