Joseph Arthur: Nuclear Daydream

I picked up Joseph Arthur's 2002 release, Redemption's Son, thanks to a KCRW stream. Though I found the album a bit unbalanced and at times fairly thin (even though he puts a trillion layers on his vocals), I kept Arthur on the radar. Now I'm glad I did, as Nuclear Daydream has just been released. While he's always had that global appeal that comes with being "found" by Peter Gabriel and touring with Ben Harper and lightweights like Gomez, the country-rock/Americana mixed with Leanord Cohenesque brooding seems to be the most sincere on this here fifth disc.

My Old Kentucky Blog is raving about a recent live Indianapolis performance and has the whole show available for download.

    'Last Train To Ithaka' is a song that Joseph offered to help victims of the Katrina hurricane.

    If you go to http://www.josepharthur.com/av/index.htm you can also read what Joseph has to say about this song and where he'd like donations to go to.
