Blue Eyed Blacks

I can't be even remotely unbiased about this one.

Blue Eyes Blacks are my former co-worker and all-around cool guy Jason Moon Wilkins and a cast of acquaintances he's helped out and been helped by. The album is Black Eyed Soul and it has a quiet intensity that mirrors the Nick Drake-Elliot Smith-Leonard Cohen-Vic Chesnutt school of mope-rock Jason's into (so much he named his first child after Smith), without mirroring the mopeyness itself.

Catch some samples here.
