Nuggets 261– Morning Voices 14

Nuggets 261 - Morning Voices 14

Yeow – Sleep Over, Grouper, Young Marble Giants, Angel Olsen, TV Girl, Which Magic, Julianna Barwick, Mountain Man, Castanets, The Corsairs, Cate Le Bon, Valerie June, Sam Prekop, Autopilot is for Lovers, Bosque Brown, Family Band, First Aid Kit, Willie Williams, Eisley, Veronica Falls and Lazer Zeppelin.

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.
