Routes and Branches Play List 1/21/12

I just had a good visit with my wife's brother "J" who used to live here in Eugene and returned to Oregon this week to be part of the Renegade Saints 20th Reunion party happening tonight in Portland. J was the band's road manager back in the 90's when the band had a strong following throughout the northwest. A little more on the rock side of Americana, the Renegade Saints were good song writers who played with a lot of feeling.

A few new female artists in the the list this week starting with Katya Chorover and her CD "Big Big Love" which is much more Americana sounding than her name is. Jean Synodines, (another fun to pronounce name) has an interesting CD called "Girls, Good & Otherwise" which is for me one of those disc that has couple of tunes I think are good and the rest I think otherwise. And the third new CD was from Daphne Lee Martin & Raise The Rent called "Dig & Be Dug" which has a little south of the boarder sound on the tune "Rosalita". I'm also liking the Pegi Young & The Survivors debut release "Bracing For Impact". I think its great that she is putting out some of her own music after years taking care of family priorities that Neil couldn't.
