Tim Easton Daytrotter Session

There is a tug to almost all that Tim Easton sings about. It's a tug to get you think all those thoughts that don't have to be seedy. They could be romantic. They could be good and just, but they get twisted and wrung just a touch when Easton gets them in his hands and these thoughts turn punchy. They turn into the finer points of a night or a discussion between two people who have had exactly one or two too many and the conditions are ripe for all kinds of interesting combustions.

On top of being a spellbinding, all-too-real portrayal of post-Katrina New Orleans (produced by the same folks who brought us The Wire), it's quickly becoming one of the finest musical programs on television. In just a handful of episodes, we've gotten live, gorgeous full-length performances from Elvis CostelloDr. John and Allen Toussaint.
