Good Listening: Indigo Girls – New York City 3/26/09

From talking with fellow music loving friends, we all agree that Poseidon and the Bitter Bug - the new album from the Indigo Girls, is their best album in a really long time. It's been quite a while since I've paid real attention to an Indigo Girls release - Swamp Ophelia was the last one that I really loved, and I was still living at home with Mom and Dad when I got that one....so yeah, it's been a while!

I caught up to at least 2000 with the Indigo Girls a few years ago when Jefito posted this bootleg (download) which continues to be one of my favorite listening choices on the Ipod, wherever I might be at any given moment.

Poseidon and the Bitter Bug is a brilliant batch of songs, and lucky for you all, Emily and Amy played a great acoustic set for WFUV in late March that will sell your ears on the new album as the album itself did for mine.

"Closer to Fine" falls early in the setlist, as it always does - I'm amazed at how many times the Indigo Girls have performed this one, night after night - and yet it still maintains the same fresh honesty and passion that was present in the recorded version the first time I heard it. And that was over 20 years ago, folks!

Enjoy this, and please snag yourself a copy of Poseidon pronto - You'll be so glad that you did.

A special note on the broadcast below - Make sure to check out Rita Houston's great interview with the band, midway through the set. Great stuff!

P.S. - If you haven't visited WFUV's corner of music blog awesomeness on the web, you really need to - Check it out here for lots of regularly updated content from Rita and the whole WFUV crew!

    Love it. Thanks for posting! The show at Highline Ballroom sold out too quickly for me to get tickets — this is the next best thing!

    Jason…it totally rules. GREAT sound and performance. Kicking myself that I missed their area show here last year. Perhaps they will come around this year…
