STOCKI'S JANUARY LISTENING

First Aid Kit Ruins

A few folk have asked that I would share my listening on a monthly basis. Here's what was new to me in January...

GLEN HANSARD - BETWEEN TWO SHORES : Our Irish national treasure comes up with another album of sublime songwriting. Deep bass groove underpinning songs of melancholy and heartache.

FIRST AID KIT - RUINS : Those Swedish sisters with a Blood On the Tracks style album. You just love their harmonies, verging on country, unique to themselves.

SUFJAN STEVENS - MYSTERY OF LOVE : a single song from the film Call Me By Name has all the fragile Stevens’ voice, acoustic gentleness and grace notes dashed across it.

SARAH MASEN - THREE STRANGERS : Just one song BUT a joy of 2018 is having new material from Sarah Masen… the density of her wonderful poetry and quirk of sound is all wrapped up in brilliant songwriting.

COLTER WALL : A young man from a small town in Saskatchewan full of Steve Earle type songs and a robust voice.

LAURA MARLING - A HARD RAINS A-GONNA FALL - Marling takes on classic apocalyptic Dylan for the Peaky Blinders finale… she does a fine job!
