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.

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.
