Editor's Pick: The renewed, and continuing, interest of local indie-rockers and hipsters (and people who are a long way from neither) in traditional honky-tonk as played by Robert Ellis & the Boys and as documented by a certain Lonesome Onry and Mean and myself this summer. Encouraging, refreshing and amusing.
Marc Brubaker: This one goes to Cee-Lo Green's cover of Band of Horses "No One's Gonna Love You." Not only is it kick-ass - thanks to Green's exquisite, goosebump-inducing pipes, but also it was completely out of left field. Was anybody expecting this? Hardly.
