Hi, Everything's Great and Hey, Everything's Fine by Limbeck

I am such a nice guy. Today is my birthday, and instead of taking the day off to play with my shiny new guitar amp, I'm going to give you a present. Yes, you, my loyal music addict blog reader. I've decided to upload two albums that go hand in hand for you to download, one of which I don't think you can get anywhere else on the internet.

I'm not ready for some burned down bridge just yet
And I'm not saying that I want anything from you
The only thing I really want now, if I see you, Suze
Is if we drove side by side on a highway
In the beehive state, and we could honk and wave

"Honk + Wave"

Limbeck is one of my favorite bands of all time, just like this album is one of my favorite albums. They're called "indie" and "alternative country" a lot. But I would describe them as just good old fun. Limbeck writes perfect little pop songs with a noticeable southern influence in their music and lyrics. They're not overly country, but it's there.

All the songs on this album are about traveling, and meeting people in different places around America while on tour with a semi-successful rock and roll band. Even the title, Hi, Everything's Great, seems like something that you'd read on a postcard from someone's road trip. It's wonderfully enjoyable music that is just brilliantly enjoyable. I can listen to it no matter what mood i'm in, and it always relaxes me. Just feel good stuff.

I can't begin to describe how much I love this album. There's not much I can say that will immediately make you want to download it, but I think this is something that you just have to hear for yourself to appreciate it's charm.

Hey, Everything's Fine is a more personal and warmer sounding Hi, Everything's Great. When I bought the first album, I had no idea that I was actually going to be getting this one as well absolutely free, until I opened the package and this fell out. I must say, it was one of the best musical suprises I have ever had. This album is every song from the studio album, performed acoustically, live at a small party that Limbeck held with only their close friends. It's very quaint, modest, and just an all around awesome performance that I listen to even more than Hi, Everything's Great.

The audience is very small, and most of them have a small part in the music of these performances. Each song has it's own guest star or guest stars, including Nate Ruess from The Format, Justin Pierre from Motion City Soundtrack, and close friend Rachel Cantu. The recording really makes you feel like you're there. Limbeck didn't edit out any of their mess ups, including having to start "Gamblin' Man" three times because of honest mistakes, and restarting "Albatross + Ivy" because the singer "heard a funny noise." There's something about it that just really hits me the right way.

These two albums together are probably the most listened to in my entire music library. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Buy it! (You may or may not get both if you order the CD...I got lucky with mine.)

  1. Limbeck rules. Hi, Everything's Great is in my top five albums of all time, and I lucked into the live version at a record store in SLC, and it's also great. People who love Limbeck are great.
