Song of the Day - November 29, 2006

Skeleton Blues is another masterpiece by Simon Joyner. Sounding like a complex combination of Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground enriched with a dash of Dylan, Simon Joyner is joined by his backup band from Omaha, The Fallen Men on his latest effort. The album was recorded live in an abandoned train station outside of Omaha. The effect is a relaxed recording that lets the true emotions of the songs show through without overproduction. My absolute favorite tune is the opening track "Open Window Blues." A song that simmers with Simon's vocals, but also is accompanied by a riveting guitar that is just as irresistible.
