Robert Finley’s story as a musician that finally has their breakthrough on their 50/60s is not unique – see Charles Bradley or Seasick Steve – but always impressing to hear about. After decades of obscurity, blues/soul songwriter Finley was spotted busking outside a music festival in Alabama, and the rest is history. His second album, “Sharecropper’s Son”, produced by Dan Auerbach, is out now. It’s our album of the week.

Purling Hiss frontman Mike Polizze has gone solo, and the result is our album of the week, “Long Lost Solace Find”. With a little help from buddy Kurt Vile and engineer Jeff Zeigler (KV, the War on Drugs, etc), he’s crafted one of the nicest feel-good folk-pop records of the season. Go get it while it’s hot.
