Ray LaMontagne

Hi there.  Again, no food for you, but I couldn’t help but ask if you’ve heard this album yet.  It’s called Gossip in the Grain and I love it.  I have to admit, I didn’t love it at first.  My parents got the album for free at a benefit and gave it to me.  I listened to it a couple of times, mostly perusing, and found a couple of songs I liked.  That was about it.  I put it aside for a few months, and then found it a little while ago and gave it another few listens.  I don’t know if my tastes have changed, or if I just needed a little time to digest these songs, but I just started to love almost every song on the album which, these days, is rare.

So let me know what you think!  Have you heard this album?  Do you like Ray LaMontagne?  Went to high school with him? Never heard of him?  Do tell…  If you do get your hands on the album, some of my favorite songs are: You Are The Best Thing, Let It Be Me, Meg White, and (the oh so sad and oh so beautiful) A Falling Through.  You can, of course, check out most of these songs on Youtube.

    Ray is my favorite!! I listen to him all the time. My brother in law got me hooked. You should check out Bon Iver. He has a similar sound quality. Miss you!
