paul westerberg - as far as i know

simply put, paul westerberg is a legend. former frontman of the replacements, he still manages to blow me away time and time again. recently the kind folks over at rhino compiled a best of cd, "besterberg: the best of paul westerberg." the cd collects his best solo work and a few rare songs as well. the man practically invented grunge music. the track i posted comes from his latest album of new material entitled "folker" which was released last year on vagrant records. i saw paul live a little over a month ago and he hasn't lost his touch one bit. truly one of the best songwriters of recent generations. recommended if you like: the replacements, ryan adams, the rolling stones.

While I think he's lost some of the energy and melody of his best 'Mats days – which, in my opinion, were from Tim through All Shook Down – the stuff off of Folker is, indeed, quite nice, and nearly a return to form.

Also, if you've not already, check out "Bookmark" from Suicane Gratification. The guy's not written a better, sadder song since "Here Comes A Regular."

Thanks for the post.

This is a pretty good Westerberg Track.

Check out the SMALL BEDROOM Mixtape Vol.I, it has some killer stuff on it.
