Sorry for the neglect on the blog this week my friends. I am also cheating and just providing a playlist of tracks I have been listening to…but let’s be honest here – it isn’t the superior journalistic writing that you are here for…you can tell me. So then, let’s have some links to get some music that I have been enjoying and urge you to as well.
- Seattle Times and their 4 day feature on Damien Jurado covers to promote his upcoming album (my vinyl shipped yesterday!). So far there has been Jon Russell, Pickwick, Al James (Dolorean) & Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day Real Estate). All are worth a listen, but RIGHT HERE you will find James’ version of Cloudy Shoes.
- Horse Feathers have a new album upcoming and they have finally dropped their lead off single via Stereogum.
- Jordan Klassen has a new EP out and there is some great beauties on it. Currently my favourite is the track ‘Threads’ as it is finger picking indie pop perfection.
- We have been putting up new live videos of Tyler Butler over on the Yer Bird Records/Winter King website. This week had Tyler giving his best Jake Gyllenhaal impression while singing ‘Kingfisher’. See for yourself below:
Tyler Butler :: Kingfisher from Yer Bird Records.
That is all I have for now – look for more suggestions this weekend!
