Down Under
I'm quite chagrined to not have ever brought you Jeff Lang before as a Song of the Day, and I have to admit to being a bit blinkered or blind to talented Australians (only able to name one off the top of my head). But anyway, Jeff Lang has all of those wonderfully prized attributes you could want: awsomeness, moroseness, and I forget the third. His new record Chimeradour blends West African instruments and blues melodies with broke down images and sad characters. He also made a gorgeous record with the late Chris Whitley.
