#18: The Weather Station, “Loyalty”

We hosted her last January in a sold out show at the Mercado Negro in Aveiro. Just four months later, she puts out the best album of her career on her Paradise of Bachelors debut. The Weather Station’s Loyalty is out now and you can listen to two songs off it on our weekly playlist. But there are plenty of reasons to listen to this one and to subscribe our ever-changing playlist.
