On this week’s roundup . . .
. . . a couple great songs from Louisiana, some folk, some angsty lo-fi indie rock, and some heartache. Ohhh, the heartache.
The Deslondes – Muddy Water
Great news to start your week: these guys will have a new album due out 6/23.
Heartfelt, languid americana doesn’t get any better than this.
Hurray for the Riff Raff – Rican Beach
The Navigator is decidedly less country and folk-oriented than HFtRR’s previous stuff, but front to back, this is a very good record.
Elliott Brood – The Fall
Because we all need more Canadian alt-country in our lives.
Gaffa Tape Sandy – Water Bottle / Smart Dressed Guy
If the phrase “hardly art, hardly starving” means anything to you, then you’re in for a treat.
RIYL: Neutral Milk Hotel, The Thermals, good music, despondency
Adult Mom – Tenderness
And now, here’s something lovely and peaceful.
Justin Townes Earle – Faded Valentine
Mr. Earle’s whole catalog is worth checking out, but hard-luck JTE is still the best JTE.
Until next week, cheers.
