Saturday Matinee – Shovels & Rope, Richard & Linda Thompson, & Postmodern Jukebox

Shovels and Rope have a nice country sound – with dawgs. They’re a husband and wife team.

They remind me a little of Richard and Linda Thompson.

That song is one of my all-time favorites for unknown reasons, and we’ve posted at least one other version before.

On the other hand, these folks crack me up because they’re so talented and so spot on. Here’s another great hit from PostModern Jukebox.

 

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more pasta and butter.
