LOVE FOR THE FANGED ROBOT FROM THESE UNITED STATES

April 6, 2012

Beautiful words from Jesse Elliot: “I’ve been thinking a lot about his song “Let the Countdown Count Me” this week. (Hit play on that video link… now!) It’s beautiful, number one. It elegantly describes both change and acceptance, which I always love. And it speaks to me even more personally, this Very Good Friday, because my childhood heroine and partner-in-crime Grandma Bonnie passed away a couple weeks ago. I don’t pretend to know what all of the song is about – yet another reason I love it – but I think it resonates deeply because it’s so…wide open? In this order: honest, naked, buried, determined, alive, zen, seeking, surrendered, ultimately open-hearted. And that is surgery, accomplishing a narrative that sweeping in so few words and sounds.”

A BIG WEEK FOR 10 IN 20′S DECEMBER ARTIST, SUNDAY VALLEY

DECEMBER 6, 2011

The same week that 10 in 20 released the new track and video for Sunday Valley’s “Goodbye”, Saving Country Music ranked the band as the nation’s #2 live performance of 2011.  An excerpt:

‎”I really don’t know what to say here, except that Sunday Valley was the best live band I discovered in 2011, and very possibly might be the best live band right now in all of country music. I know that may come across as a platitude, but I believe it, and to try and use words to describe their live experience almost seems insulting; you just have to experience it yourself. Sturgill Simpson is country’s version of Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan. Mark my words, 2012 might be the year of Sunday Valley.”

MUSIC BLOGGERS’ FIRST LISTEN TO MATT DUNCAN’S ALL SAILS

NOVEMBER 10, 2011

In the first two days after our second new release, more than 500 people watched the video for Matt Duncan’s All Sails.  This early exposure owes a great deal to the reach of independent music bloggers, an increasingly influential segment of taste-makers.

Lexington’s own You Ain’t No Picasso, followed far beyond state lines,  has admired Matt Duncan’s music for years.  Still, YANP’s first take on All Sails was unexpectedly blushworthy:

This might actually be my favorite Matt Duncan song. The new Lexington recording project 10in20 really brought out the best in the Matt Duncan Band with “All Sails.” It’s a catchy, well-produced song from one of Lexington’s best songwriters.

Rock Cousteau was the next music blogger to discover the new song on release day–thanks, Rock Cousteau!
