Luke Winslow-King Performs on Episode of CBS's NCIS

*Double-take* Was that Luke Winslow-King performing at the end of the new NCIS episode on CBS last night? Why, yes; yes it was. 

Luke performed an original piece to close out the show as the crime team kicked back in a park in New Orleans...probably looking for meddling musicians up to no good. 

You can see and hear Luke at the 38:00 mark here.

Ken Tucker Reviews Jon Langford's 'Here Be Monsters' on NPR Fresh Air

Ken Tucker reviewed Jon Langford's new album Here Be Monsters on NPR's Fresh Air!

Here's the transcript of the review.

"This new album takes a bit of a break from both of those genres [punk and country]: These are more like folk songs with rock 'n' roll instrumentation, hard rock with sentiments that can be sung in a soft voice, but whose ideas are never soft-headed."

Buy it on CD and LP here.

Scott H. Biram is American Songwriter Magazine's 'Songwriter of the Week'

American Songwriter Magazine mustered up the courage to approach the one and only Scott H. Biram about his songwriting craft, process, and influences. It's a fascinating SHB is a pretty fascinating dude, a student of many schools. 

Enlighten yourself.

Amidst the SHB101 songwriting course, there are still a few Biramesque answers of good humor, including his response to any words he hates: 

"I don't hate any words really . . . only phrases. "Cool beans".. I hate that one. Saying "vacay" instead of "vacation." It' a sign of the times. Laziness. "Okee dokie Doggie Daddy." This one must die."

We'll throw in "yesiree-bob" and "totes" and "obvi" and all that crap and wholeheartedly agree with The Dirty Old One Man Band.
