Tim Easton

If you have somehow overlooked Tim Easton in the past 13-plus years of his road-weary existence, I do believe that now is the time to change that. Choosing to take up occasional residence in Joshua Tree, California—the veritable confluence of all things cosmic in this nation—Easton has channeled all possible prowess, effortlessly ruling the six-string while oscillating between unholy rabble-rouser, rasp-ridden hoodoo man, and tender balladeer. Easton's latest exports, the hollowed-out Since 1966, Vol. 1 and Beat the Band (the latter recorded with the Freelan Barons, who he may or may not have abused into submission) highlight his prolific tendencies and long-winded efforts, retreating back to the Jayhawks-meets-Junior Wells proclivities of 1998's Special 20. However, this is undoubtedly Easton at the top of his career; don't miss it. RAQUEL NASSER
