Album of the Week – 28/03/20

This weeks sees the release of some big hitters in the form of Pearl Jam and Sufjan Stevens. The Sufjan album has been described by some as a side project, but it’s more of an experimental affair. While Pearl Jam certainly did what they do best, and it gets lots of love from Killian here, I decided to go for some sweet sounds from young miss Basia Bulat.

Album of the Week – Basia Bulat – Are You in Love?

“Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Basia Bulat joined forces once again with Jim James (My Morning Jacket) for her new album, Are You in Love?. The record is out March 27 via Secret City Records and is produced by James, who also produced Bulat’s 2016 release Good Advice.

In celebration of the forthcoming album Bulat released a new single and video ‘Your Girl.’  “I wrote Your Girl during a snowstorm in Montreal and recorded it under the warm desert sun in Joshua Tree,” says Bulat. “Someone once told me you can’t sing and cry at the same time but that wasn’t true for me when we were recording this one. There’s joy in finally being free from a painful situation, relief, laughter – even as it feels impossible to ever forget the pain or understand why that storm came through your life the way it did. And so, light on your feet, you dance with the memory instead. If you’re listening to this song and understand what I mean, know that I’m singing with you as we’re dancing in that swirling wind.”  The video was directed by Brian Sokolowski and filmed in northern Quebec”
