On this week’s roundup . . .
Matthew Logan Vasquez and Nathaniel Rateliff – Red Fish
Mr. Vasquez’s outstanding new record, Does What He Wants, is out now.
Bonus points for Nathaniel Rateliff’s nonchalant wine-glass slide at 1:45.
Balto – CA LUV
Catchy indie rock here — maybe 2 parts Cataldo and 1 part Wilco?
Wilderado – Petra Rae
Still waiting on a proper full-length release from these fellas, but there’s plenty of good music to be had right here in the meantime, such as this great song about the fake middle name the singer’s wife gave herself in elementary school.
Leif Vollebekk – A Case of You (Joni Mitchell cover)
Yes, more of this, please.
Will Stratton – Manzanita
This’ll make you want to snuggle up with your special somebody.
“I love the way that we grow old.”
Well put, sir.
Until next week, cheers…
