On this week’s roundup . . .
. . . piano-based rock, socially-conscious rap, and a bunch of singer-songwriter folk goodness.
J. Roddy Walston & the Business – You Know Me Better
Destroyers of the Soft Life is ready to single-handedly restore your faith in American rock music.
Courtney Marie Andrews – Sea Town
It’s beginning to look like this lady is incapable of writing a bad song.
If you don’t already own her outstanding 2016 record, Honest Life, now’s the time to check it out.
Chance the Rapper feat. Daniel Caesar – untitled
Mr. Colbert puts it well at the end: “That had life.”
Jr. Jr. – Same Dark Places
Stripped-down, acoustic Jr. Jr. may well be the best kind of Jr. Jr.
Cape Francis – Iditarod
This one is hazy and hypnotic and should fit right in with the upcoming winter days.
Check out more from Cape Francis here.
Langhorne Slim – Ocean City
No one does heart-on-your-sleeve upbeat whimsical folk quite like this fella.
Lost at Last Vol. 1 is due on 11/10.
Until next week, cheers.
