Started my day here with Blackpool’s very own Jack Cooper (Sandgrown) - of Mazes and Ultimate Painting. Nice if you like the latter, the Clientele and/or the Proper Ornaments. Enjoyed this, and will be on rotation this weekend.
Then off to Nadine Shah (Holiday Destination), where she ramps up the political commentary, but potentially to the detriment of the musical side? Possibly? Not sure yet that this hits prior heights, but perhaps it is a grower and I need more time with it? Will duly give; she deserves it.
Tried a few others, but so far nothing else has stuck. Felt Iron & Wine (Beast Epic) a little too Radio 2-ish. Perhaps Sam always has been, and it is just me who’s changed. But then again … And still don’t ‘get’ War on Drugs.
And currently listening to Widowspeak (Expect the Best), and think that might be one that sticks. A little reminiscent vocally of Hope Sandoval, but a heavier sound than her solo stuff or Mazzy Star. This band is new to me, and yeah, actually I am liking this. Another for weekend rotation.
So far, a good week!
