On this week’s roundup . . .
. . . funk, indie folk, hippies, singer-songwriter stuff, and some top-shelf ukulele playing.
Chicago Farmer – Rocco & Susie / Skateboard Song
Just your normal, run-of-the-mill song about falling in love, having kids, and making methamphetamine, followed by a cautionary tale regarding the dangers of kick-flips and nose-grinds.
Midwest Side Stories is very good stuff, and it’s out now.
RIYL: Todd Snider, Billy Joe Shaver, good music, hay bales, Robert Earl Keen, story-songs
Sinkane – U’huh
Here’s a little funky reggae-ish Sudanese pop by way of London.
Chris Thile – My Oh My
And now, Chris Thile being silly-good at music while sitting in with Jon Batiste and Stay Human.
Cloud Cult on The Lowertown Line
Let’s spend the next 27 minutes watching a fantastic band of lovable hippies, Cloud Cult.
And finally, Delbert McClinton’s newest single, “Like Lovin’ Used to Be”, recently premiered over at American Songwriter. It’s good.
Until next week, cheers.
