American Music Club frontman Mark Eitzel released a solo album, Don't Be A Stranger, earlier this year via Merge and recently finished up a a tour in support of it which hit NYC earlier this month (12/3) at Highline Ballroom. A video of Mark playing "Firefly" at that show is below.
Mark gave us a list of his favorite music and films that he "saw/heard this year that might have been from any year." The whole list, in no particular order, is below.
Monsters of Folk's debut album is out Tuesday on CD, and the collaborative project of Conor Oberst, Jim James, M. Ward and Mike Mogis is one of the year's most pleasant musical surprises. Catch them on tour in October and November.
Crayon Angel: A Tribute to the Music of Judee Sill is one of the year's best tribute albums, and includes contributions from Beth Orton, Bill Callahan, and Final Fantasy (who is touring with the Mountain Goats in November).
Other albums I have heard and can recommend this week include Amy Millan's Masters of the Burial, Castanets' Texas Rose, The Thaw & The Beasts, Hallelujah the Hills' Colonial Drones, Le Loup's Family, Owen's New Leaves, Rose Melberg's Homeade Ship, and Vic Chesnutt's At the Cut.
Reissues of note this week include the Beastie Boys' remastered Hello Nasty (complete with bonus disc of rarities) and three Mudhoney discs on vinyl (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, Mudhoney, and Superfuzz Bigmuff ),
