Alibis – Only Time
London duo Alibis make a strong first impression with this song.
Gary Clark Jr. – Nextdoor Neighbour Blues (Mahogany Session)
Always a joy to listen to Gary Clark Jr. How great is the guitar tone on this one!
Bon Iver – Beth/Rest (iTunes Session)
Here’s Bon Iver doing what they do best – being moody, intense and beautiful.
Night Beds – Lay Your Hands
There’s a lot going on in this track, and from what I’ve read, in singer/songwriter Winston Yellen aka Night Beds’ life in the lead up to the release of this album. I hope the experience of making the music was cathartic because the listening experience is very moving for sure.
Branford Marsalis – The Ruby And The Pearl
Listen to this lovely song and then read this excellent short interview with saxophonist Branford Marsalis.
