Will Stratton’s second album for Bella Union, “The Changing Wilderness”, is our album of the week. Pastoral folk for troubled times, Stratton’s seventh LP is yet another gem to be explored by fans of fingerpicking songwriters.

#276: Cory Hanson, “Pale Horse Rider”

Cory Hanson’s sophomore solo record, “Pale Horse Rider”, is our album of the week! Better known for fronting LA psychedelic rockers Wand, Hanson’s solo work is more on the mellower side, flirting with cosmic country – an unsurprising turn of events considering his whereabouts.

#271: Azita, “Glen Echo”

We haven’t heard of AZITA Youssefi for a while, until one day we get the news that the Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist has collaborated with Drag City labelmates Bill Callahan and Bonnie “Prince” Billy on a cover of “Blackness of the Night”. There, she played all the instruments and did all the arrangements, just like on her first album in nine years, “Glen Echo”, which also serves as a great introduction to her world of song. Enjoy it, and make sure you dig deeper into her discography later.

#219: Nathaniel Rateliff, “And It’s Still Alright”

Nathaniel Rateliff has loved and lost. It really shows on his first solo album since 2013, going back to his roots after a successful stint with his Night Sweats. Serving as a tribute to late friend and collaborator Richard Swift, this is not your average “look, I’m divorced now” bearded dude folk record.
