Discovering a "New" Old Band
Over the Rhine is new to me. I was downloading some bootleg (legal ones) concerts of Waterdeep and I found some bootlegs of Over the Rhine. I had, of course, known of them for years but had never really given them much of a listen to this past week. I have fallen in love with their sound and lyrics. I recommend their studio recordings as well as these bootlegs.
I started with the latest bootlegs from last year and worked my way backwards. They are all now on my ipod and will provide me with hours of bliss. The bootlegs are actuallt really good quality. Folk-ish music bootlegs the best.
You should also check out their website as their are lots of free downloads of studio recordings and two free live mp3 from an upcoming live release.
