A few weeks of just those weekly playlist posts, but I try to return back into writing regular blog entries from now on and at least until the end of the year. The best way to start that is to feature the album that I’ve loved by far the most during this insanely hot summer. The album in question is the new Clay Parker and Jodi James album The Lonesomest Sound That Can Sound that came out on the 20th of July.
The Louisiana duo of Clay Parker and Jodi James have written a timeless and endlessly beautiful folk album. Sure there’s also darkness in the stories, but the way they perform the songs is full of warmness and down-to-earth beauty. The Lonesomest Sound That Can Sound is a perfect antidote against the everyday stress that is continuously lurking in the back of my head. There’s no space left for stress, when Jodi and Clay start singing together in perfect harmony and gently wrap my heart in the sweetest acoustic americana sounds and captivating folk stories. There’s absolute no way I could overemphasize my love for the singing on this album. The singing and the harmonies are pure gold throughout the record and I could listen to them singing together all day long. Check out a couple of personal favorites from the album below. Although, to be honest, every song is a favorite and The Lonesomest Sound That Can Sound is also my favorite album of the year.
