    I Love Off The Beaten Path Music

    I'm definitely a "rock snob", and as such most of what I listen to is obscure. Even when it's music by popular artists it is always things no one else has seemed to ever heard. Like I like The Byrds but in their Gram Parsons era, I love The *** Ponys, Wesley Willis, Harry Nilssen...

    Well, It Feels That Way
