Out This Week 5/26


James Blackshaw, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Wand (aka James Toth of Wooden Wand), Sir Richard Bishop, Bachelorette, Sharon Van Etten… what’s everybody smoking these days?

Other great releases this week come from Phoenix, Viva Voce, The Intelligence, Naomi Shelton, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, Dave Alvin, Joyo Velarde (debuting solo from her usually work with Lyrics Born), and James Yuill, who will be live today on KEXP at 3PM!

    Dreaming of You is a great tune. There’s more by War Tapes that are good if anybody is interested…

    I also really like “Dreaming of You” by the War Tapes! I think their whole album “The Continental Divide” is good!
