More words about current favourites

Following on from my blog post yesterday here’s the first of what may well be a number of sequels…

I’d like to credit Alec Bowman, a film-maker, photographer and fine musician in his own right for introducing me to Arborist. Here’s a song I’ve been playing on repeat, A Northern View from their same name album.

Rachel Dadd was a later discovery for me towards the end of 2019. This is from her album Flux. The chorus is a current ear worm.

This is lovely too, Ned Roberts from his Dream Sweetheart album. The Songbird is one of many fine songs therein.

I’ve been a fan of Rose Cousins music for ages now and this is found on her superb latest album, Bravado. It’s called The Fraud.

The combination of The Ballroom Thieves and Darlingside is a delight. This is a stand-out song for me from their Unlovely album.

Words about some current favourites

Although I’m not likely to be on air in the immediate future I am still, as you might imagine, listening to lots of new releases as well as some long-standing favourites. Thought I’d share them with you. And if you like the sound of the artists I write about please do head to their websites from the links I’ve provided and buy a copy of their latest album or EP, whether CD, vinyl or download ideally directly from the artists shop, bandcamp page etc. This is more important than ever at the moment when gigs and festivals have been cancelled.

Waxahatchee – Can’t do much from the forthcoming album Saint Cloud.

Ian Roland and The Subtown Set – Double rainbow from the album of the same name.

Alec’s album has been produced by the excellent Josienne Clarke.

I just adore Josienne Clarke’s In All Weather album and keep going back to it again and again. Heaps of tracks from this fine album have been woven into playlists for the Quiet Revolution over many months now. This is one of many favourites.
