Music Library: Little Feat, Jack Logan, Loop, Los Campesinos!, Nick Lowe, Lynyrd Skynyrd


Little Feat - Little Feat (1970) and Dixie Chicken (1973). Both of these are good examples of the 70s L.A. version of Americana. Both have decent songs but both are slick as shit.

Jack Logan - Bulk (1994). Georgia singer-songwriter Logan's first album with 42 songs of varying greatness. When he's at his peak, he's phenomenal.

Loop - Heaven's End (1987), Fade Out (1989), A Gilded Eternity (1990), The World In Your Eyes (compilation, 1987-92).  Excellent trippy, feedbacky guitar drone band.

Los Campesinos! - We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed (2008) and Romance Is Boring (2010). More from one of the most fun indie rock bands out there.

Nick Lowe - The Wilderness Years (compilation, 1974-77). Lowe's recordings between Brinsley Schwarz and Jesus Of Cool. Some of these songs are incredible, but the all-too-jokey tracks mocking the Bay City Rollers drag it down.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd (1973). Three guitars, "Gimme Three Steps," and "Free Bird."
