Thanks for the group as a whole for capturing the perfect essence of old time Guthrie and where we are now. Everyone nailed it. i'm sure this was a labor of love for all.
As a long time Centro fan i have to rave about Will's contributions. VD City supplies the perfect amount of grit to the collection, Chorine is surrealistically beautiful (and sad) while No Fear brings back memories of the early Centro clapping songs (fans will know what i mean, its a huge compliment).
Of course, Jay is Jay. The modern day Guthrie. Careless Reckless Love is probably arranged just as Guthrie would have done it himself. Have to admit I wasn't familiar with Andes Parker and Varnaline before but I sure am now. Fly High is very pretty and Old LA and Angel's Blue are the sort of songs that stick in your mind the rest of the day.
The most creative song is Yim Yames My Revolutionary Mind. Outstanding. An amazing gathering of today's best song writers who could feel the heart of Guthrie's music. It's wonderful when such creative people, including Woody, get together.

First of all, let me say Woody Guthrie rocks and it is a daunting task trying to find the right lyrics, then set music to a legend's words. This is an all-star cast of musicians who took real care of preserving the right tone/intent of the writer while creating some great music. From "Hoping Machine" to "New Multitudes", the tracks are solid to superb. Lastly, I just saw the first live show of their tour and the songs are even better live. Thanks to Yames (My Morning Jacket), Parker (Varnaline), Johnson (Centro-Matic) and Farrar (Son Volt/Uncle Tupelo) for delivering something with real depth and character.

The 12 tracks on disc 2 are just as good as the 12 tracks on disc 1 which is the single cd release-----which makes for 24 tracks of the best music I have heard in 2012. If you can find the deluxe edition get it. Otherwise, the single cd is fairly priced and is a generous representation of these excellent recording sessions.

I wouldnt exactly call it a great album,but New Multitudes,the project that includes Jay Farrar and Yim Yames, is a fairly good batch of songs written around Woody Guthrie lyrics.I was a little surprised that Jay Farrar would do this so soon after recording a similar album with Ben Gibbard based on Jack Kerouak lyricsI thought that record was better,but then Jay wrote all the music for that one and I really like his music. I guess He can do whatever he sees fit. Also recommend getting the deluxe edition,for the 12 songs on it are all good,though the tracks are more hastily recorded. Farrar and Anders parker do all the songs on it.

Just a great collection of sounds on this record. The artists really seemed to put some effort into creating music for the Guthrie lyrics and I appreciate that they each bring a unique sound to the lineup. I've listened to this at least a dozen times since downloading and it gets a little better each time.

I am thoroughly enjoying 'New Multitudes' -- both the pace of the music and the way Jay Farrar and the other musicians translated Woody's lyrics into song IMO is excellent. This CD hasn't been out of my car player since it went in. I listen to at least part of it almost everyday. I get new meanings from the lyrics the more I listen. Wholeheartedly recommended.

disc one is an epic triumph of this dream team of indie folk rockers. On the deluxe edition you get a whole other disc of only Jay Farrer and Anders Parker performing wonderful tunes. Makes this project even more of a home run of folk/rock amazingness.
