Quality over quantity with the Earworms this week. If you have a worm you would like to share, please send it along to email@example.com, together with a few lines about why you’ve chosen it. All contributions gratefully received!
Kauan – Siiville Nousu – abahachi: I’ve been a massive Kauan fan since Fuel introduced me to them in ‘Wind’ week. Over the last couple of albums, good though they were, their sound has become (to me) a bit claustrophobic; the new record feels like a return to the windswept plains and enormous skies of their earlier work. Epic – and not only because of the length …
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – The Face of Love – Ravi Raman: from the Dead Man Walking soundtrack, performed with Eddie Vedder.
Colter Wall – Bald Butte – tincanman: Set a spell, this young Saskatchewan troubadour has a yarn to spin. I learned two things listening to his self-titled debut: 1) putting on a cowboy hat doesn’t need to strangle your soul, brain and heart; 2) Woody and Ramblin’ Jack and all them live on. (Oh, yeah, and a third thing – it’s pronounced ‘bewte’, not … well, you know).
Jimmy Buffett – Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants – AliM: Heard this on the radio last week and it has been lodged in my head ever since. From his 1979 LP Volcano, this is just such a happy, carefree song. I am getting soft in my old age.
