Marco Z, Aveiro

Marco Z, “Hot Burrito #1”. 26 February 2013, Aveiro, Rossio park. Also amazing and one of the best Flying Burrito Brothers cover I’ve heard to date.

Our favorite songwriter from this newborn decade is preparing the release of her sophomore LP, The Stand-In, coming up next 25th February on Names Records. I wish I lived in a world where Caitlin Rose would put out a new song every single day. Today’s one of those days worth living. Listen to the upbeat-yet-melancholic “No One To Call” above and watch out for the track listing of the new album below, which includes a Felice Brothers cover and a collaboration between her and The Jayhawks’ Gary Louis in two of the songs. Best album of 2013 and I even haven’t listened to it yet.

J. Tex might have spent all his life in Denmark, but his roots lie deep in American soil: he was actually born in Detroit, so you can now stop not taking him seriously as a country singer just because he comes from chilly Scandinavia. (Come on, everyone loves Scandinavian songwriters, why shouldn’t you?) “Look Up Look Down” smells classic through its three minutes and is the first single off his latest record – the first album I’ve heard from him and his Volunteers – named House on the Hill, which was just released last week. You can get it via Swedish alt label Heptown Records.

Nashville, TN.

My favorite country girl just did this awesome version of “Piledriver Waltz”, a song that was written especially to your favorite movie of 2010, Submarine. Alex Turner thought of this mellow-simonandgarfunkelesque-polaroid ballad would fit perfectly into the movie, and I guess it did. But Caitlin just took it to another level. Taste it. Everything is better with a slide-guitar.
