Weekly Roundup for February Thirteenth / a country so brave and so bold

On this week’s roundup . . .

. . . some poppy folk, some weird folk, and a heaping tablespoon of politically-minded acoustic folk.

Happy Monday.


Joe Purdy – New Year’s Eve / My Country / People What Will You Do

Last summer, Mr. Purdy quietly released a fantastic record full of pensive, acoustic folk songs.  Better late than never — check it out.

The first two songs below are from said fantastic record.  The third song is brand spankin’ new (19 days old as of this writing).  Predictably, it is also pensive, acoustic, patriotic, and awesome.

We need songwriters like this perhaps now more than ever, as a living document to these bizarre times.  50 years from now, this Trump stuff is going to make even less sense than it does now, and it’s pretty batshit crazy in the present.


Tall Tall Trees – Backroads

Get a little trippy and weird with Mike Savino, aka Tall Tall Trees.

Freedays is due out 2/17.


Hurray for the Riff Raff – Everybody Knows

Our First 100 Days is an independent music project with a mission statement: “to inspire progress and benefit a cause for change”.

Basically, they’re raising money to help protect women’s rights issues, civil rights issues, and many other related topics that people are justifiably a wee bit nervous about right now, given the current U.S. administration’s brazen stupidity.

You can read all about the project here.


Samantha Crain – Antiseptic Greeting

Let’s end on a more light-hearted and poppy note, from the pride of Shawnee, Oklahoma.


Until next week, cheers…
