I’ve been out of touch with music long enough that there is new music coming out from artists I quite like. In most cases, I didn’t realize there was something new until a song I hadn’t heard randomly popped up on whatever station I was listening to at the time. The artists this week represent those people and their new music (which I will probably be buying very soon).
Tift Merritt – Mixtape
Josh Ritter – Rattlin Locks
New Pornographers – Crash Years
Black Keys – Tighten Up
As a side note: I’ve seen all of these bands in concert, which (in my mind at least) makes it just a little bit sadder that I didn’t know about the new stuff this year.
