In the twelveth installement of Acts of Volition Radio, I draw heavily on a mix by my friend Dennis Arsenault. Also, thanks to Timothy Chaisson for permission to include his track.

Steven, thanks for putting these lists together... I've heard alot of great music I wouldn't have known about without this site.
Just so you know, the company I work at has a product called websense installed on our network. It appears (at least from here) that your site is now blacklisted by http://websense.com/... I was able to download the playlist using an externally hosted linux server with wget.
Anyway, keep up the good work.
I really liked the session. Regarding Idlewild, "American English" is, to my mind, their masterpiece to date. Regarding mandolins, there is a lovely mandolin orhcestra at the end of the Smiths "Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" if you can handle the angst-ridden, self-pitying moroseness of the whole thing. I am partial to it because my grandmother used to play in a mandolin orchestra. Keep on rockin'.
Thanks for this new session; I especially liked songs five and six (haven't heard the seventh yet).
Just a minor note: in your tracklist you wrote "Sw<b>ea</b>ter than You," instead of "Sw<b>ee</b>ter than You."
Thomas: Thanks - I've fixed the typo now. At least I didn't say "Sweater than you".
Wow. I'm absolutely stuck at "Mighty Little Man" by Steve Burns. Admittedly, I'm not sure if I'm stuck there because I think its a great tune, or if it is because I can't stop thinking about Blues Clues, or some of both.
Great stuff all around, Steve. Thanks for sharing!
Short time reader, first time listener :)
The Joe Strummer song captured me, as did Idlewild, Tim Chaisson and Aaron Sprinkle. I'm going to have to hunt those songs down.
Idlewild gave the old speakers a good work out :)
First off, great session. I am bewildered listening to Steve Burns rocking out, with great music to boot. Ok: Timoth Chaisson....Am I blind, or can I not find somewhere to BUY THE CD "Something Acoustic"? Can you steer me in the proper direction??
I really really love this session. You've pointed us in the direction of several excellent artists, which is really the whole contire point of the thing, I'd suppose.
Jason: I'm not sure where you can buy Timothy Chaisson's CD. He's a local artist and I don't think there is any label/distribution for it.
He's going to be at my wedding next week, so I'll ask him (if I remember) :-)
I am looking for some Timothy Chaisson lyrics.I love his music and would love the lyrics if anyone has them!
