Jacob Collier
He’s a very gifted musician, a terrific talent. He was picked up by Quincey Jones at one point. As a listener, I find him a little over-reliant on the technical side of things; hopefully, when he’s a little older, he’ll allow more feeling to come into play. But whichever way you look at it, doing something like this at the age of 17(?) is pretty special:

Just heard this on the radio. Khruangbin & Leon Bridges - Texas Sun. Don't known anything about them but it's lovely:

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Yeah, Khruangbin is my other new discovery!.

Re: Collier: He's playing locally in April, but I want to know which version turns up!.

The NPR Tiny Desk Concert Series is absolutely awesome.

and

...the Tiny Desk is a good ...

yes it is...and also their "All songs considered" pod

to whom I owe a small addiction to Jason Isbell, the incredible LIZZO and most of all Gillian Welch/Dave Rawlings

Fancied something new.  I dont get to listen to R6 so much now I bike to work.  So I checked out Fopp's albums of the year 2019.
Bought Sharon Van Etten, Remind Me Tomorrow.

Very highly recommended. Have not bought an album I'd describe as a grower in a while, this def is. Enjoying it more each night.

Drive by Truckers on a random play on Amazon

Some of the best lyrics ever. Sad love songs then angry screaming triple guitar attack. Smashing.

Drag the lake Charlie

Our best case scenario
Is Lester turns up dead
I'm almost out of Valium
Courage and self-respect


Birthday Boy

The pretty girls from the smallest towns
Get remembered like storms and droughts
That old men talk about for years to come


Goddam Lonely Love

And I could find another dream,
One that keeps me warm and clean
But I ain't dreamin' anymore, girl, I'm waking up
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take everything you got
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

The Berlin Philharmonic under Simon Rattle.  "The Rite Of Spring" is terrifying.   


This is a very good box set for the money.  https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06W2M9SGY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have a couple of hers on my play list, Good Traditions and Twist of Sobriety,  never tire of hearing them - love her voice.

Used to very much fancy her back in the day,  she looks like she could be my daughter now.

Schubert on random play from Amazon Prime.

It switches from saccharine oh god make it stop to absolutely sublime. I don't know any other composer that elicits two such different emotions in me depending on the piece.

Also every third track Amazon serves up is a version of Ave Maria. I was raised a Catholic but still FFS "Alexa skip"

Stuff from the new Bowie EP.  Half of it is filler and the good stuff is studio versions of stuff I have on bootleg.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Simon-Rattle-his-Soloists-Years/dp/B01BW4FDB8/ref=sr_1_1    Working my way through this.  Currently Cecile Ousset playing Ravel's Piano Concerto in G.


A very good buy at the price.  :thumbsup:

You know that feeling when you heard something new and wanted to rush out and buy an album? Possibly the most wonderful new performer I've heard since .... Amy Winehouse? (nothing like her, but you know what I mean)
