Weekly Roundup for September Nineteenth / i was young, sleeping outdoors

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.
