Pretty much obsessed with everything these folks put out right now.
Daily Dose: Rickie Lee Jones, “Just in Time”
You found me just in time. Before you came, things were running low.
Daily Dose: boygenius, “$20”
In another life we were arsonists.
Daily Dose: Josiah and the Bonnevilles, “Jersey Giant”
While we’re on a folk roll, here’s a nostalgic tune about not sleeping alone on cold nights.
Daily Dose: Nickel Creek, “Strangers”
Unrelated to the Nickelbacks but sounding mighty similar to the Punch Brothers.
Daily Dose: Belle and Sebastian, “Juliet Naked”
Belle and Sebastian will forever be one of the formative bands I found in high school, an album that made me feel cooler just by listening to it. And now they have released an album called Late Developers that shows what feels to me like a Catholic school boy developing a large negative.
I love when bands keep pace with you and you run this race together, you know?
Daily Dose: Saint Saviour ft. Badly Drawn Boy, “The Place I Want To Be”
Daily Dose: The Innocence Mission, “The Brother Williams Said”
I return to this 2020 album, See You Tomorrow, every few months. I found it as I watched my health slip beyond my control and it’s kept me balanced, like I would imagine a hymnal helps the ecclesiastically faithful.
I suppose the more accurate phrasing of that sentence would be: this album found me in the thicket but it helps me see the forest for the trees.
Daily Dose: Eva Cassidy with the London Symphony Orchestra, “Tall Trees In Georgia”
Simply something exceptionally beautiful for your Sunday.
Daily Dose: Rose Cousins, “I Would Die 4 U”
Might be one of my favorite covers of all-time.
