Two songs about the end of the world, one about bad teeth, another about digging, someone with a death wish and a miscellany of songs that appear to focus on unrequited love. Hmm.
Valerie June is a delightful find. I have NPR’s All Songs Considered podcast to thank. She featured in their year end ‘best of’. Valerie looks like she should be rapping but sounds like Dolly Parton. Excellent.
