#273: Esther Rose, “How Many Times”

As you probably noticed already by our playlists, we’re big fans of the New Orleans country scene and its retro-y sound. One of its rising stars is singer-songwriter Esther Rose, whose third album, “How Many Times”, is out now.

#269: Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, “Carnage”

Seems like Nick Cave has had enough of being quiet. The standout track of CARNAGE, his new LP with long-time collaborator Warren Ellis, has to be “White Elephant”. Halfway through the menacing sounding song, the whole thing turns into a full fledged gospel hymn and we’re left wondering whether Jason Pierce is pulling the strings behind the scenes. It was then we knew it would be fairly easy to pick our album of the week.
