Just a quick note about two really good albums that was just released. First we have Lilly Hiatt’s new album Royal Blue that was released by Normaltown Records. I don’t know that much about Lilly. I just started listening to her music a couple of days ago and therefore I’m only in the process of matching my heart with her music. To be honest, I don’t know that much about her father John Hiatt either. I’m sure that’s a crime, but hey, at least you can’t argue that I only like Lilly because of her father. Perhaps this will actually go the other way around and I end up investigating that John Hiatt song catalogue after falling in love with Lilly’s music. This is Jesus Would’ve Let Me Pick The Restaurant from Royal Blue.
New Tom Brosseau album Perfect Abandon is also out and available. I don’t think I have written about this gorgeous folk singer-songwriter for years. Probably not since his 2006 album Empty Houses Are Lonely. I must admit that I even lost touch with him for several years and didn’t really continue listening until his excellent 2014 album Grass Punks. I should probably dig up everything that I lost between Empty Houses Are Lonely and Grass Punks, because these last two have both been excellent. This new one was produced by John Parish and Ali Chant. This is Roll Along With Me from Perfect Abandon.
