Ok, let’s round out my list of favorite new music from 2018. For Part 1, see here
Meg Myers – Tear Me to Pieces
Heard this on an NPR earlier this year and was blown away by the intensity of the emotions – about getting into a situation which you know you will regret but doing it anyway.
Hatchie – Sure
Another Australian singer/songwriter from her debut EP Sugar & Spice. I love the huge atmospheric pop feel of this song about the mixed up feelings at the end of a relationship (or is it the end?)
The Wild Feathers – On My Way
Another band my co-blogger Mike turned me onto. One of my new favorite bands.
George Ezra – Shotgun
English singer/songwriter George Ezra’s sophomore effort, Staying at Tamara’s has his biggest pop hooks to date, and that’s a good thing. I could have picked many from this album.
John Hiatt – Over the Hill
34 years and 22 albums in, John Hiatt is still turning out amazing, funny, soulful music – truly an American treasure. From his latest, The Eclipse Sessions. I had the thrill of seeing him twice in concert this year.
Frank Turner -1933
Frank Turner’s latest is his most ambitious musically to date, but still includes the kind of punk folk that I have always loved about him. When I saw him earlier this year in Baltimore, he opened with this number, and absolutely blew the roof off the stage from the get go. About the scary times we are living in. Bonus live version below!
Well that’s it – I am looking forward to discovering lots of new music in the new year and sharing it with you all!
