it's not really folk per se, but you might be into the new Richard Buckner, M. Ward, Ben Weaver, or Micah P. Hinson.

Yeah Defiance Ohio and This Bike is a pipe Bomb make good music that has a folk twinge to it. Woody Guthrie is amazing, I have a three album collection of his stuff. Also Leadbelly is really good, early folks/blues.

for that real shit-


this shit is
and probably had more to due with the 60's folk revival that anything else.


for more musically sophisticated folk revival 60's type shit-





that's a nice start.

Really? haha, I had no idea that he was trendy.

my ex sent me a mix that had one of his songs on it, and out of the whole mix that song stuck out in my head so I bought the album and read up on the guy. 

Anyways, I don't mean to harsh anyone's mellow, I just think this whole Devendra Banhart movement is shit.

I hope you guys are on some next-level shit, though, 'cause he is terrible.

you're talking about freak-folk and until now nobody had mentioned any.  no. i'm not into freak folk.  although i do like devendra's flamenco style guitar work, i can't stand his voice for the most part..

mipe: "bob dylan" is not folk? "the freewheelin bob dylan" is not folk?  "john wesley harding"?  "the times they are a changing?" are you kidding me?

It seems to me that I don't know what I'm talking about.

I just hate how all of the hipster fucks are like, sooo into folk.

Maybe not you guys, though.  Or maybe yes you guys.

I am so glad that I am to old to care what is "hipster" or not, I just like what I like and if others dig it cool if not, then no skin off my nose.

there's nothing fucking lamer then a folk show, and i like folk. who want to sit cross legged in a semi-circle while some d-bag who can't afford a guitar strap sits on a stool. i outgrew that after kindergarten.
