#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.
