When I first heard this song, I thought it might be something new from The Jayhawks. It turned out to be Robert Ellis. Americana music seems to be downbeat and focuses on the downtrodden. That has it’s place, but it’s refreshing to hear an unabashed and powerful love song in this format. Pre-order his album on Pledge Music
Beth Orton has taken a left turn from her typical light electronic folk sound to embrace “1973”. The song is still electronic but embraces the early sounds of electronic music. It’s bounces and it’s fun and it’s great to hear Beth get her groove on. Beth’s album Kidsticks comes out on May 27.
