Weekly Roundup for July Third / where every kindness is taken indifferently

On this week’s roundup . . .

———

Greg Ashley – Goodbye Saint Paul Street

Greg Ashley writes songs that are full of cynicism, skepticism, and pessimism.

He’s probably a downer at parties, but the tunes are great.

Pictures of Saint Paul Street is out now.

Terence Ryan – To Live and Die in New England

Terence Ryan sounds like a blue collar, groovier version of Damien Rice.

That’s a good thing.

Don’t Panic is out now.

———

George Ezra – Don’t Matter Now (acoustic version)

Entirely hummable, Paul Simon-y pop goodness in acoustic form.

———

Sam Buckingham – Water

We could all use some hand-clappy, Australian pop in our lives.

Check out more from Ms. Buckingham right here.

———

Van Morrison – Domino

Van the Man on Burt Sugarman’s Midnight Special.

Yessir.  Yes indeed.

 

Bruce Springsteen – Born in the USA (live, 1985)

And finally, here’s one of the greatest and best American protest songs ever.

Happy Birthday, America.  We’re going to get through this embarrassing, bullshit administration somehow.

Until next week, cheers.
