“We’re trapped inside the song.”

Silver Jews – “New Orleans” from Starlite Walker (1994) and “Wild Kindness” from American Water (1998)

The Silver Jews is the most consistently under-appreciated group of the last 15 years. Perhaps it’s because David Berman usually stays tucked away in Nashville fostering his country soul.

As a Christmas gift, I give you two of my all-time favorite SJ songs. Notice Stephen Malkmus’ unparalleled guitar stylings especially in “The Wild Kindness.”
