#210: Tindersticks, “No Treasure But Hope”

The second coming of tindersticks (official) keeps yielding fruits. Everything the band has released since the mid-00s lineup change, from the Constellation to the City Slang eras, has been consistently good. Their 12th album, “No Treasure But Hope”, is amongst the best of the bunch. Don’t be that person who reads “12th album” and instantly looks the other way. Staples and co not only still have it in them; they seem like they’re ageing too gracefully.

Plus: new tracks by Chuck Prophet, Federale, Jesca Hoop, Bill Fay, Joe Henry, Andy Shauf, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Pan•American, Land of kush, Tinashe, Rosalía, Jessie Ware, of Montreal, Wye Oak, William Doyle, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, Ratboys, Hot Snakes, and black midi.

#201: Jeremy Ivey, “The Dream and the Dreamer”

With “The Dream and the Dreamer”, Jeremy Ivey ceases being just Margo Price’s husband and sidekick, and establishes himself as a songwriter worth following. It’s hard to believe this is Ivey’s debut album, and we hope it’s not the last. Some of the best americana we’ve heard this year. Plus: new tracks by Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Tindersticks, The Orphan Brigade, Daniel Martin Moore, Christopher Paul Stelling, Alasdair Roberts, Richard Dawson, Matt Dorrien, Lola Kirke, Okey Dokey, Olivia Jean, Dry Cleaning, Pip Blom, Long Beard, (Sandy) Alex G, Angel Olsen, Jenny Hval, DJ Firmeza, Murs, JPEGMAFIA, Yves Tumor, Tørsö, and Swans.

#38: Donnie Fritts, “Oh My Goodness”

Our playlist #38 has a lot of songs in it. The new Donnie Fritts record, Oh My Goodness just came out, and there’s two songs off it on our playlist. But it was pretty difficult for us to find a consensus on which album to put on the spotlight: there’s also two songs off new records by U.S. Girls, Mercury Rev, and Robert Forster to listen to, along with new or recent songs by Tindersticks, Kurt Vile, They’re Heading West (a beautiful Samuel Úria cover, featuring the man himself), Daniel Knox, Geir Sundstøl, and Glen Hansard. Listen to the playlist below and don’t forget to follow the main playlist here and check all the songs we’ve been championing since the first week of the year here.
