Starting with Blind Willie McTell expounding on the history of the blues, we venture out on our weekly tour of the deepest and dirtiest blues recordings of the past century. From two versions of a common narrative about the 1927 flooding of the Mississippi to a whole set of bluesy Tom Waits covers, we'll get as low as ever on Straight Natch'l Blues.

In part two of my quest to figure out my favorite records of 2013, I'm struck by another trend for this year - the massive amount of excellent records put out by women. From bands to solo artists, guitar rock to experimental electronics, new artists to seasoned veterans, women artists are putting out great records this year. I'm going to cover some of my favorite women performers of this year and hope you find some new favorites as well.

Songs about consumption and plastic and malls and trees. . .
That's right! It's the first of 2 shows of holiday music!
But it's not the usual stuff you heard every time you went in a store after Halloween. This stuff's better.

Cascade with me through the halls of Homme as I explore the sonic landscapes of desert rock, stoner jams, freaked-out psych and beyond. All hail Ginger Elvis!
