#298: Ada Lea, “one hand on the steering wheel…”

Ada Lea’s debut LP, ‘what we say in private’, was the soundtrack of a big chunk of my summer of 2019. Speak/sung vocals and big melodies reminiscent of recent albums by the likes of Big Thief or Katie von Schleicher. The Canadian singer-songwriter’s new album was just released and it follows up the debut perfectly.

#292: Jade Bird, “Different Kinds of Light”

If it wasn’t for the accent, you would think Jade Bird was another southwestern American half-country, half-Stevie Nicks songwriter. You know, the kind we love around here. It’s easy to know where the confusion might come from: in her second album, the English musician is joined by producer Dave Cobb (who else?) to bring us one of the most interesting Americana records of the year so far.

#289: Mega Bog, “Life, And Another”

Mega Bog’s new record is our album of the week. If you know her work – we were all over her previous album, “Dolphine”, back in 2019 – you know exactly what to expect; if not, well, if you’re into exquisite songwriting (think Cate Le Bon or Helena Deland), this might just be your jam.
