#263: Buck Meek, “Two Saviors”

It’s hard to talk about Buck Meek without referring to him as “Big Thief’s Buck Meek”. But his solo work – with a little help from some of our favorite handymen of indie music such as Mat Davidson (Twain) and Adam Brisbin – is its own thing, with Meek’s characteristic voice paving the way to beautifully arranged songs. Songs that we’re definitely going to use as an argument when, come November, you’ll say, as always, that “this wasn’t a very good year for music”.

#182: Andrew Bird, “My Finest Work Yet”

Andrew Bird’s “My Finest Work Yet” might not be exactly his best, but it’s definitely his most interesting record in ten years. It sounds familiar, it sounds like it has always been there, but it never sounds redundant. There has never been a better time to get back into his discography. What’s more: new songs by Kevin MorbyBedouineOlden YolkJosh RitterCraig FinnJustin Townes EarleLily & MadeleineDrugdealerDark TeaSam OutlawSon Volt, Richard Dawson, HRNSBlanco PalameraRyan PollieC DuncanChris ForsythBlack MidiLow Life, and American Football.
