I haven't listened to a ton of new music this year, but I definitely did listen to plenty by these three. Here's hoping the next time they come to town I'm not out of town...
I wasn't going to do this three times in a row (j/k I probably was) but after inflicting audience recordings upon you twice, after a late night spot showed up I figured why not. Plus whatever this song is great
I'm a fan of Baker's whole new album, but I chose this song because midway through it sounds to me like there's a little tip of the hat to Joni Mitchell's "River," which I nominated for this year's WGOMXMASMIX. Please listen and tell me if you hear it too!
I should play something from this lady's new album before somebody steals it from me.
Surprised we could only manage one week of "Best Of" posts from the citizenry this year. Even Phil got one up there, you guys ( 😉 ). Looks like DK and I will have to take it from here. I might be stealing one from him right now, actually...
Finally got to getting her debut. It's fantastic. At least in that "I feel a compulsion to listen to something pretty depressing" way.
I didn't really mention it, but the layout of this year's Summer Mix was supposed to resemble a summer day (as in a full 24 hour period, from daytime to late night). Specifically was channeling the summer days of a more youthful time, which were.... well, yeah. Anyway, JB's track from this year's mix really caught my attention. I placed towards the end as it helped symbolize the empty feeling at the end of some of those nights.
I was going to play this version specifically, but then I saw that Pepper had gotten to it. Went to find another song, and each one I found was better than the one before it (perhaps a Millions of Cats kind of thing). Anyway, I decided on this one, which isn't on her new album, but I'm guessing it will be on her next one though.
First time I've actually seen her. She can play. Might be lowkey in love.
Zack turned me on to Ms. Baker, and I've been listening to her a ton lately.
