Anything new going on this week?
Let’s round ’em up.
An indie band influenced by punk, soul, and klezmer, led by a guy whose last name is Terricloth? Apparently.
Did this record come out in 1972? I don’t think so, but I can’t be certain. Stellar R&B no matter the decade.
Can I keep this interrogatory running gag going? Well, I’m going to try. Also, Glaspy has written a fantastic album filled with unique production touches and a strong singer/songwriter vibe with hints of Carole King.
Is the third time really the charm? For UK’s Blossoms it is, with their strongest album to date of catchy sophisti-pop mixed with early 90’s Britpop . As a bonus, they recorded two versions for your listening pleasure: one with all the bells and whistles and one stripped down. This doesn’t always work well, but it does here.
Does Brandi Carlile have a little sister? No idea. But if she did, and she listened to Fleetwood Mac and Jenny Lewis, she might record an album like this. An incredibly assured debut from Pruitt.
