#226: M. Ward, “Migration Stories”

We thought about not posting anything else for a day except John Prine tunes. But hey, there’s 1h43min of new tunes to listen to, and we’re not holding them hostage. This week, we focus on M. Ward’s tenth LP, Migration Stories. Which is, basically, more of the same. Fortunately for us, was there a time where “more of the same” from the American singer-songwriter meant anything other than good news?

#210: Tindersticks, “No Treasure But Hope”

The second coming of tindersticks (official) keeps yielding fruits. Everything the band has released since the mid-00s lineup change, from the Constellation to the City Slang eras, has been consistently good. Their 12th album, “No Treasure But Hope”, is amongst the best of the bunch. Don’t be that person who reads “12th album” and instantly looks the other way. Staples and co not only still have it in them; they seem like they’re ageing too gracefully.

Plus: new tracks by Chuck Prophet, Federale, Jesca Hoop, Bill Fay, Joe Henry, Andy Shauf, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Pan•American, Land of kush, Tinashe, Rosalía, Jessie Ware, of Montreal, Wye Oak, William Doyle, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, Ratboys, Hot Snakes, and black midi.
