  1. After a slow start I’m really starting to engage with this. Had to swap my green pressing for black tho’. Former was noisy - black perfect, and cheaper! Anyone else found similar?
  2. https://www.vox.com/culture/2020/7/31/21340926/taylor-swift-folklore-millennial-bruce-springsteen?utm_campaign=vox&utm_content=entry&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
  3. Anniversary reissue. Immaculate pressing and the clear vinyl is positively hypnotic spinning on the turntable!
  4. There are a couple that may appeal: ‘You Can’t Hurt A Fool’ is an absolute peach. As I noted before, ‘Crying In Public’ isn’t doing it for me, but you might feel different
  5. Bar a couple of tracks, Lightning Man & Crying In Public, I thought it excellent. Classic Pretenders sound: La Hyndes bruised-in-love drawl over upfront guitars. Last couple of times I’ve seen them I’ve been mighty impressed and this captures the muscular energy well. Imho, of course. No download code tho’.

  7. For what it’s worth, right now: 1. Lucinda Williams - Good Souls, Better Angels 2. Brian Fallon - Local Honey 3. Nathaniel Rateliff - And It’s Still Alright 4. Drive-By Truckers - The Unraveling 5. Jason Isbell - Reunions Coincidentally vinyl Dylan arrived today, but although I’ve been streaming it since release it’s a long term project. Still soaking it up. Need to find time to listen to new Pretenders & Jarvis Cocker releases, and Courtney Marie Andrews on the horizon. Been a good year for new releases, some compensation for the lack of live music I suppose
  8. If you have a reschedule date my understanding is the promoter should be offering the option of a refund. I’ve only done so for one gig: Beck at Hammersmith, bought via Ticketbastard. (Yes, I know, sorry.) Not the easiest to find the refund request page on, but it is there.
  9. .....I know there are a few on here! https://pitchfork.com/features/5-10-15-20/lucinda-williams-on-the-music-that-made-her/?mbid=social_twitter&utm_brand=p4k&utm_campaign=falcon&utm_medium=social&utm_social-type=owned&utm_source=twitter
  10. Listening right now. Loving it. Nice clean pressing too.
