First round for the year, and we are off to a great start!
Grace Cummings – Refuge Cove
Genre: Bob Dylan, basically
Commentary: What a great voice. Hopefully the next album will be slightly less directly from the Dylan playbook.
Saariselka – The Ground Our Sky
Commentary: Try this out the next time you wake up crushed by the weight of existence
A Winged Victory for the Sullen – The Undivided Five
Genre: Faux classical
Commentary: You can easily get a full week of writing out of listening to this on repeat.
San Cha – La Luz de La Esperanza
Commentary: New gen ranchera. Dithers a bit but pretty good.
David Keenan – A Beginner’s Guide to Braver
Genre: Big Music
Commentary: Oh man, this is so cheesy and self-referential. Love it though.
