On Rotation: John Moreland


One of the things I love about catching with friends from different parts of the country is when I get introduced to new music. This happened recently when I caught up with a friend from Oklahoma in town on business. We got talking about music, specifically music in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the name John Moreland came up. I virtually have not stopped listening to him since.

The song below, from on his 2013 album In The Throes¬†gives you a good taste of his country-tinged acoustic stylings. Rachel Maddow once said¬†“If the American music business made any sense, guys like John Moreland would be household names.” I couldn’t agree more.
