This is Dan Croll. I just can’t get enough of his new album "Sweet Disarray" 
As always I recommend the live show. He has quite a band behind him.



First Listen: Nickel Creek, 'A Dotted Line'





I feel like there isn’t enough time in the day for me to sit and listen to all the music I wish to hear. I want to sink my teeth into so many songs and artists but I can never quite catch up. I guess it’s the best of problems…



Six years ago I went to see Matt Costa in a small club in San Francisco. These crazy guys opened the show and I was instantly hooked. I even bought their self released cd that had sold out. Jon promised they would mail it to me when they got more. (They did!) Had the craziest conversation with Matt and then went home and searched up everything I could find. This is what I found. It is still my favorite video of theirs.

"How’d I pick up a chicken with one hand?! I don’t know how I did that!"

Nickel Creek Announces Reunion Tour, LP

How cool is this?!
New song sounds awesome and they’re coming to Oakland.



I like to think of him as one of my best kept secrets



I’ve been waiting many hours
By the silent moon
And in the wild
The jungle flower
Your toxic perfume
Tell my friends I’m gone it’s true
I’ve passed on now
To the eyes of a dark, lost, blue

I don’t believe you
I’m in a parachute
Falling in deep, sleep
Out of control, Can you feel it?
Is this the end of the road?
Falling in deep
Lost in a dream

And the rains begin to shower
Cover me in bloom
In the wild the watchman’s tower
Your perfect monsoon
Tell my friends I’m gone it’s true
Tell my son I’ve gone away with you

I don’t believe you
I’m in a parachute
Falling in deep, sleep
Out of control, Can you feel it?
Is this the end of the road?
Trick up your sleeve; breathe
I don’t believe
Is this the end of the sea?
Staring at me?
I could be free
In a dream

Lay down by the Firelight
For all I know it’s the last time
Tell my son
