Tonight this little round up begins from California with the sweet sounds of the new Little Wings album People. Physical copies have been out for a while, but it’s now out in the digital world too. I bought my download just a while ago and I’m listening to it for the first time while I write this. So I don’t have a clear picture of what are my favorite songs or so forth, but I already know that I’m going to love this record. Here’s Kyle Field and co and Cliff’s Face from the new Little Wings album.
Traveling on to Catskill Mountains to experience something quietly monumental and absolutely mesmerizing. The new Florist album Emily Alone came out on the 26th of July on Double Double Whammy and it’s a very special record. It’s dark and vulnerable, but somehow still so soothing and beautiful. It’s difficult to describe the walk I had with this album. It’s like we carried each other out from the dark and for that I’m grateful.
Continuing with huge recent favorites. Jordan Moser is a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas and his album Long Night came out on the 26th of July on Keeled Scales (who are putting some real pressure on Mama Bird Recording Co in the imaginary best record label in the world battle. Just joking of course. There’s no battle. Just hugs and kisses. I love both dearly). Anyway, this is a tremendous album full of gorgeous literate country folk and sang beautifully by Jordan Moser with more than a little help from Molly Burch who features on every song. A pure bliss from first note to last.
And let’s wrap tonight’s little blog entry in Oxford, Mississippi with a song from an album that’s not out yet, but it’s definitely one I’m waiting eagerly. Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster’s (from Water Liars) new album Take Heart, Take Care will be released on the 30th of August by Big Legal Mess. The stunning title track has been out for a while. Check it out below and then join me in counting the days until the release. I’ll need some, because I’m horrible at math.
Four Arms to Hold You is an ongoing feature with a weird name. It might not contain a whole lot of words, but it does contain a whole lot of love towards the featured songs. Basicly this is just four albums / songs / artists that have done their part in holding me together and therefore I want to tell the world or the seven readers of this blog how much I love them. Not entirely sure do these kind of posts serve any kind of purpose and I do hope I manage to write longer posts too. Right now it just feels like the playlists and these kind of short posts are the only way to keep this dear hobby alive. Plus it’s really the music that matters, not my random ramblings and these posts will always contain magical music.
