Album of the Week – 24/06/22

I’ve a working theory that more good music is released during the summer than at other times of the year. I’m not sure the reason for this, but It seems to be proving itself true in recent weeks!

This week we have a lovely new release from Glenn Jones called “Vade Mecum”. There are also new releases from G. Love (Philadelphia Mississippi), Soccer Mommy (Sometimes, Forever) and Tim Heidecker (High School), all of which you can hear below! James Vincent McMorrow is a near-constant of the festival scene in Ireland, so many of you will have seen him in the last few weeks! His new album (The Less I Knew) is released today.

But… in the end, the slow groove of Damien Jurado won out! Expect no radical change in direction, but instead, you get a whole lot of lovely…

Album of the Week— Damien Jurado – Reggae Film Star

Reggae Film Star is Damien Jurado’s 18th full length studio album and the second on Maraqopa Records. 25 years since his debut album Waters Ave S. came out, Jurado is more prolific, driven and creative than ever. The twelve mystical songs on Reggae Film Star are gorgeously cinematic and feature a rich production and diverse sonic textures.
