Holiday listening

Off on hols tomorrow. Excuse to download some albums I hadn’t got around to listening to. Plus a few Latitude follow ups.

All gotta be good!

There’s a folky/ Americana theme to most of the albums I downloaded tonight. Some left over from 2013, some new.

Added just now:

John Grant – Pale Green Ghosts

Kurt Vile – Walkin’ On A Pretty Daze

Laura Marling – Once I Was An Eagle

The Rails – Fair Warning

Jenny Lewis – The Voyager

The albums I downloaded after Latitude were predominantly electronic, with the exception of Mighty Oaks, who are Americana personified.

Latitude follow-ups:

Mighty Oaks – Brother (EP)

East India Youth – Total Strife Forever

The Acid – Liminal

Nils Frahm – Spaces

Julia Holter – Loud City Songs

Everything on this list is seriously worth listening to. I’ll be enjoying them on the Costa Brava in Spain. And no doubt I’ll still be listening to a lot of War On Drugs, Parquet Courts, Half Moon Run and The National too.

You should try them too!
