#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.

#293: Nathan Salsburg, “Psalms”

Nathan Salsburg’s work is more associated with American folk guitar playing than anything else. But through his new project, “Psalms”, Salsburg goes different places, creating brand new arrangements for Biblical psalms and singing in the original Hebrew.
