Song of the day: Hamilton Lobdell

Song of the day (7/17/2010):
Hamilton Lobdell - Reuben Wright and Phoebe Brown

Wisconsin murder ballad. Anti-melody. Like Daniel Johnston's talky numbers. Mental instability put to song. Confusion in story form.

Breakdowns all around.

Ready to enter the dismal swamp of matrimony...

Hamilton Lobdell was straight from the old mean streets of Mukwonago.

Ready for a slight roadtrip through this great state of mine, which I love. Listening to Folk Songs from Wisconsin. Hope nobody gets slain.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

If you like old timey tunes, check out this link of songs meant to highlight "Dutch" (i.e. "German") folks songs in America. It's rather Wisconsin-centric and fun.
