Not too much of Trollish interest this week, it seems.

The Bettye Lavette is kickass, if you have any love at all for big-voiced soul singers. I'm going to listen to the Steve Earle, too, since I'm a fan. I'd like to hear Joni's and the Iron & Wine, and perhaps I can try those out. I think the "pig" is calling me.
