The two artists I’ve listened to the most in 2012 are Chris Bathgate and Pickering Pick. I was really addicted to them early in the year and still listen to them regularly. Just last week I listened the whole Pickering Pick catalogue (or at least everything I have) at work and that was a very enjoyable day at the office (not that I work in an office). Yeah, I think I might said in the past that Pickering Pick works best in small doses, but I’ve gotten over it and eight hours of Pickering Pick works just as well. Anyway, recently Sera shot three great videos of his brother playing magically beautiful songs. This one is Tiger On Your Arm from 2011 Yer Bird release Tiger Balm.
Oh and I also have to use this opportunity post one of my favourite 2012 songs. I did write about Pickering Pick’s 2012 album Prayer Flag earlier in the year, but at the time I failed to post or even mention the song Seasons on the Run. It has since become my favourite song of the album and I keep on getting back to it on a weekly basis. It’s just wonderful and that Great Dictator speech fit in perfectly. I love the song dearly.
