It’s so hard to place these picks from 1 to 10 because I love each of them for different reasons. So…I’m using my Program Director’s prerogative and arranging these in no particular order.
Haim – Days Are Gone
Throwback pop perfection
Little Green Cars – Absolute Zero
I like quirky lyrics!
Jason Isbell – Southeastern
Songs you feel down deep…a fantastic songwriter!
Dr. Dog – B-Room
Unique, fun, great live show!
Valerie June – Pushin’ Against a Stone
Roots music with an original twist.
Phosphorescent – Muchacho
My chill out album of 2013…gorgeous.
Jim James – Regions of Light and Sound of God
There’s always one that sneaks up on me…this gets better every time I hear it.
Jake Bugg – Jake Bugg
This young whipper snapper is too talented for his own good.
Anders Osborne – Peace
Wow! This one took me by surprise…found my way back to him.
Laura Marling – Once I Was An Eagle
That voice, that guitar work, those lyrics…mind blown.
