This week we return to our regular scheduled programming, highlighting the debut, self titled The Deslondes album, out now on New West Records. Joining them are the likes of Neil Young, Yo La Tengo, Arthur Russell, Ashley Monroe, Kacey Musgraves, Nikki Lane, Christopher Paul Stelling, Johanna Warren, Jenny Hval and Diamond Rugs.
Here we are with yet another playlist, this time with tracks from upcoming albums from Speedy Ortiz, Courtney Barnett, Calexico, Tobias Jesso Jr., Kanye West, Patrick Watson, Matthew E. White, Clark and songs from recent records from Diamond Rugs, William Ryan Fritch (yes, again – what a great record!), Ghostpoet, Samuel Kerridge, Paul Johnson and The Body & Thou. There’s just so much great music coming out these days that we had a shortlist of 20+ tracks for this week only… And that’s without counting songs that aren’t on Spotify yet!
Diamond Rugs is John McCauley (Deer Tick), Robbie Crowell (Deer Tick), Ian Saint Pe (Black Lips), Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), Hardy Morris (Dead Confederate) and Bryan Dufresne (Six Finger Satellite). You didn’t even need to listen to a single song to like them already, right? Diamond Rugs is out now on the amazing Partisan Records and they’ve just recently played this song on Letterman. Watch the performance below.
