Another very quick round up posts of songs / videos / albums that I love. It will be like this for a while now, because someone needs me more than the readers of this blog. Even though music bloggers probably should start compiling the EOTY lists for 2019, let’s start with a quick visit to the finest albums of 2020. There’s a new The Innocence Mission album See You Tomorrow coming out in January and I absolutely adore this advance single On Your Side.
Moving on to Scotland. Josienne Clarke’s new album In All Weather came out 8th of November on Rough Trade and it’s a wonderful folk album. The Drawing of the Line, Dark Clouds, Walls & Hallways are just so so amazing. The whole record is. Here’s a couple of favourites, but do click the links on the Bandcamp player to hear/buy the whole album.
Next this travel takes us to Amsterdam, Netherlands. The excellent new VanWyck album Molten Rock came out on the 15th of November on Maiden Name Records / Concerto Records. Here’s one of the singles Carolina’s Anatomy and another favourite Make of Me from the album. Best kind of video too, because there’s beautiful cats on it.
Wrapping this quick blog post in Atlanta, Georgia with one of my favourite songs during the past month or two. I Dropped Your Name is an outtake from the fifth The Good Graces album Prose and Consciousness that came out on the 11th of October. A great record as a whole too, but this one really hit me on first listen. Again hit the Bandcamp player links to hear/buy the whole album.
