Silver Jews - Suffering Jukebox
David Berman of NY's Silver Jews
Silver Jews have been around for almost 20 years, a bit under the radar. Based in NYC, the band was formed by David Berman (the only permanent member) with Stephen Malkmus and Bob Nastanovich (both later of Pavement). After rotating through no less then 24 members if Wikipedia is to be believed (including Will Oldham), it's now just Berman and his wife, Cassie (who sounds an awful lot like Lucinda Williams to these ears, not that that's a bad thing!) This is a lovely alt-country song off their latest.
