Nuggets 288 – troubadours 11

Here’s a mix of darker songs with chinks of light. Fittingly the late Mr Cohen is on the cover.

Dallas Silver Jews Natural Bridge

Big fan of David Berman. Like Leonard Cohen he is a poet first and a reluctant performer.

The Harder They Come (Good Danny’s) Jimmy Cliff Good Danny’s 7/30/2012

Part-Monster Piano Magic Part Monster

Sixteen Amen Dunes Love

Can’t find good vid of this song so here’s another off the same album. It would be grand if he came to NZ.

La Chaleur Bertrand Belin Hypernuit

So French.

Tangerine (Daytrotter Studio) First Aid Kit Daytrotter Studio 8/9/2010

Fat Chance Little Wings Explains

Love Kyle Field‘s voice.

Between the Bars Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith

Anything by Jessica Lea Mayfield is worth a listen and this is a great collaboration.

Not One Bit Ashamed King Creosote KC Rules OK

KC Rules OK from 2006 is a fav album.

Clouds Beyond Damien Jurado Maraqopa -- Red 7″

Wrong video, but this will give you the vibe.

More at his Bandcamp page.

A Postcard To Nina Jens Lekman Night Falls Over Kortedala

A funny story by Mr Lekman.

Not Enough J Mascis Several Shades Of Why

What presence. You will need to buy the Party CD, but her first album is online and can be purchased for just $9 here:

Seven Years Of Letters The Twilight Sad Acoustic EP

Making being miserable fun again. All their music (apart from this album) is on their bandcamp page.

Trisha Please Come Home Advance Base Nephew in the Wild

He will always be Casiotone for the Painfully Alone to me.

In The Dark Places PJ Harvey Let England Shake

Darkness Leonard Cohen Old Ideas

Until I Find You Doug Paisley & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy Internet Single

Sax Rohmer #1 The Mountain Goats Heretic Pride

Still haven’t managed to catch Mr Darnielle and friends live. One day.

Nuggets 251 – Troubadours 9

Nuggets 251 - troubadours 9 web

Men and women with guitars, or a harp, or just their voices.

I have almost finished Troubadours 10, and discovered that I haven’t posted number 9.

Here it is.

Sadly, it looks like Edwyn’s guitar playing days are over. He can still put a tune together. I love this song.

The link that follows leads to a playable playlist if one doesn’t appear below.
