New Feature: The best music you’ve never heard

Meet Mark Geary

Via markgearybandcamp.com

Living as I do in the Big Apple, and married as I am to the very musical Mr. Slattern, I get lots of chances to hear music from people far more talented, yet far less famous than the vast majority of middling “big names” currently cluttering up the airwaves with their mediocre wailing and warbling.

Now I’ve been inspired by the Sportsglutton’s Monday Morning Humor, which always hands me a laugh and really helps get my week started on the right rack. In that spirit, I’d like to share some of my musical discoveries in the coming weeks. For the moment I have to confine my media choices to video, but I am working with the WordPress gods to figure out how to share audio from my extensive iTunes library.

Anyways, for starters, I’d like to introduce those of you who are unfamiliar with him, to my favorite Irish singer/songwriter, the delightful Mark Geary. Pop a Guinness, close your eyes and imagine yourself in a comfy chair by the fire in a cozy Dublin bar. Ahhhh.

  1. 33 1/3 Grand Street by Mark Geary has arrived by post. It’s up next. Will tell you how good it is because the link was promising.

  2. Oh, dear god! Didn’t I mention to you that I already have enough friends with excellent, esoteric taste in music to make me feel old, chubby and hopeless uncool as it is? Though I do have to give myself props for recognizing Adam Levine in a small role on American Horror Story: Asylum the other night. Why don’t you and Transman just run off together and giggle about obscure Irish folk singers who all sound just like Bob Dylan (you won’t have a choice…Transman doesn’t listen to people who don’t sound like Bob Dylan)?

    Great post. Are you happy to see me? I think someone owes someone a phone call. I’m not being vague to be clever; I’m being vague because I can’t remember which of us owes the other a call. I’m just certain that one is owed.

  3. I do appreciate being introduced to good music that I should be listening to. Looks like I’ll be donating some more money to I-Tunes. 🙂

    Also thanks for the love and I’m glad I could provide some inspiration.

  4. That was absolutely lovely.

  5. I’m going to pick up a CD. The link had the hook. For me tonight, Cruisin With Reubin abd The Jets by Frank Zappa. The only thing catolic about me now is my taste in music.

  6. I love this new feature! always looking for new music.

  7. I love it. My own Dead Head picker was in Oxford this weekend jamming away with great songs like Jack Straw and Fire on the Mountain. Dave was gracious enough to let me jam in and it sounded pretty good according to our guests. I mean, really – Jack Straw from Wichita!!!!!!!
