Mary’s Bridge 

Bought the first album by The Glass Aisle yesterday – not had chance to listen to it yet however if this is indicative it’s going to be great. (It involves Brian off of Stornoway)  

Water Me Down 

I was in Bath for the CLSA Conference last week so couldn’t do a Friday Song. If I had it would be this new find from the very good eponymous album, Vagabon.

You Ain’t The Problem 

This is the first track from Kiwanuka the new album by, yes you’ve guessed it, Michael Kiwanuka. It is receiving rave reviews and the pre-released tracks are sensational.

Let’s Go Out Tonight 

It has been drawn to my attention that it is 30, yes 30 years since “Hats” by The Blue Nile was released. Picking a favourite track is almost impossible but this is exquisite.

My Life 

I have downloads and playlists stuffed with all the best latest releases, blind to genres and never influenced by fashion. As you can probably see from this site.

Mercy Mercy Me 

#ClimateStrike special – only one choice really

Stay High 

This is Brittnay Howard off of the Alabama Shakes solo thing. Pretty good.
