On this week’s roundup…
… just all around good stuff. Better late than never.
James Vincent McMorrow – Last Story
This tune from Mr. McMorrow’s latest record, We Move, comfortably resides somewhere between R&B, gospel, soul, and sad bastard folk.
Also, it’s really good.
All Those Ships – Broken Cassette / Squish Spiders for You
Do you miss old Violent Femmes records? Of course you do.
But fret not — New Hampshire indie folkies All Those Ships are here to help.
Shere Disraeli – Coffee & Weed / Something
Maybe, just maybe, when it comes to clever and cheeky indie folk, Israel is the new Portland.
Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers – Atheists Don’t Have No Songs
Nonreligious folks need more outspoken, likeable people in their corner.
Steve Martin seems like a fantastic place to start.
Freedom Fry – Shaky Ground (acoustic)
This song was inspired by a Simon & Garfunkel documentary, which makes a lot of sense, since it sounds a whole lot like a Simon & Garfunkel song.
Preview and purchase the full band version of the song right here.
Conner Youngblood – TXTN / A Summer Song
Weirdly hypnotic songs by the pair.
Mr. Youngblood’s newest EP is called The Generation of Lift.
Until next week, cheers.
