Gosh, the Coen brothers and T Bone Burnett know how to make one hell of a soundtrack. This track is from the Coen's new film "Inside Llewyn Davis," and the soundtrack is loaded with amazing artists: Marcus Mumford, Bob Dylan, Chris Thile, the Punch Brothers, Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac. You can stream the album in its entirety here.
Good food and good music are two things that make me feel happy, balanced and focused. (Fun personal fact: I can't write unless I'm listening to music; it oddly makes me think more clearly.) Music and food are often at the center of my strongest sense memories. These two elements also seem to be a common, constant thread in the food and farming community and are woven into my favorite moments so far as a farmworker. I wasn't blessed with musical talent, but I think I have a pretty good ear. So, in my attempt to further merge these interconnected elements and share some good music, I'm pleased to introduce a new feature to SWYF - Tuesday Tune.
This week: "Rye Whiskey" - Punch Brothers, Antifogmatic
I can't promise that all future tunes will be food or farmy-related (or, as my younger brother likes to say, "corn-shuckin' music"), but, I hope they'll make you take a few minutes out of your day to listen and relax.
