Without question, I listened to more Taylor Swift in 2020 than I have in any preceding year. And this is 100% my favorite song from folklore.
I was hoping my favorite Sad 2020 Artist would have a Sad Christmas Song too
well it's my birthday so I'll just play what I like
Jenny Lewis has gotten so much praise and attention over the years, and, on the strength of Rilo Kiley, rightfully so. But I never really liked all that much of her solo work, despite giving it plenty of chances. It seemed like she was skating by on reputation. I very much enjoy a lot of her latest album though. It definitely wasn't an instant hit for me, but it seems to have grown in depth.
I especially dig how this live performance captures the cavernous sound of the album version.
No particular theme to my week this year, just songs and artists I enjoy, and I want to throw some love their way. Leading off is Josh Ritter, who, frankly, consistently impresses me. Some of his stuff took me a couple listens, but then it all clicked and... dang. He's probably my favorite singer-songwriter at this point.
Getting ready for a long pandemic isolation winter of drinking alone and listening to this album over and over again
So, everybody liked folklore, right?
