My soundtrack for today has been Last of The Big Time Spenders by Turner Cody. I have a couple of his older records, so I was well aware that Turner Cody is a pretty great New York-based singer-songwriter. This 2013 album had managed to fly under my radar until I somehow stumbled on it at Bandcamp today. After a couple spins, the mouse I was holding found that buy now button and I haven’t regretted that decision. This is I Know How I Feel About You from this little masterpiece.
If that Turner Cody album was today’s favourite, last night my favourite was the new album World Of Strangers by country singer-songwriter Zoe Muth. I’m kind of ashamed that I haven’t really listened to Zoe that much until now. Only a few songs here and there over the years. Why the hell wasn’t I paying attention? This is excellent and totally the kind of music that I love. World Of Strangers just came out on Signature Sounds. This is Zoe’s drinking song for moms, Mama Needs a Margarita from the new album.
And let’s end this little blog post with some classic country music. Sturgill Simpson’s High Top Mountain got a great reception last year and took a top 10 place on pretty much every country blog I follow. I joined the party a bit later when Loose Music released that album in the UK/Europe earlier in 2014. Now there’s more reasons to party, because the brand new Sturgill Simpson album Metamodern Sounds In Country Music came out a few weeks ago and I picked up a copy from the local record store last weekend. This is so damn brilliant country music. Here’s Life Of Sin from the new album.
