Song: 'Old LA'
Album: 'New Multitudes' [Amazon]
Sounds Like: My Morning Jacket, Woody Guthrie
In Their Words: "One of the songs I chose was typed on the back of a menu from a ship that (Guthrie) worked on during the Second World War while in the merchant marine. It's more than a song it's a piece of history. On one side it was 'Navy Beans with stewed carrots' and on the other side were these lyrics. He's such an interesting character and the archives are such a rich trove it's kinda hard to put into words what an honor it was to be part of the project." -- Guitarist Anders Parker
