ROB SEZ: I’d heard about Silver Jews and even sampled their music some time ago, when founder-leader David Berman still walked the earth. The band and I didn't gee haw at the time, I guess, 'cuz I left 'em to their own devices. Fast forward a decade or so: a deadly worldwide pandemic must've put me on Berman’s musical wavelength. Even if you’re not typically a fan of sardonic, laconic indie music with a folk-country flavor, you might still enjoy this. There’s a reason AllMusic & others give Silver Jews very high ratings. Huge thanks to Benjamin Walker and the WFMU crew for recording and sharing this.
