Greil Marcus is one of the deans of what we consider music writing these days, so when he recommends something it holds some weight. He's doing a column for Barnes & Noble (among other things these days) called the Real Life Rock Top Ten, which is more or less a list of stuff he likes. Somehow we missed it, but last week, among an episode of "The Good Wife" and a dry cleaning place in St. Paul, Minnesota was our very own Billy Sedlmayr:

Billy Sedlmayr “Charmed Life” (Fell City). Once Sedlmayr was everywhere in the Tucson punk scene; then for long years he was nowhere. This is his first solo album: a True Detective soundtrack after the fact. The case blows up with “Grapes in My Garden.”

It's a great album. I imagine Zia has it (right?), but get your hands on a copy before the year is through.
