My monthly installment of recent discoveries and other tunes that I've been grooving to...
The songs aren't necessarily thematically linked to current redactive events, but there are some subtle nods in some of the titles, lyrics, and musical moods.
Some highlights include the graceful "Projector" from Alycia Lang (who once played guitar in my living room with Trails and Ways), a classic from Linda Ronstadt (who I've been rediscovering and treasuring of late), a new-wavey delight from Sweden's Red Sleeping Beauty (which includes Niklas Angergård from Acid House Kings), another instant classic from the fantastic new Ages and Ages album ("Me You They We"), Hjaltalin's recent #1 Iceland hit, and one of my al-time fave 80s tunes lovingly redone by Jonathan Coulton.
