Verging on folky this week, and nothing wrong with that. If you have an earworm you’d like to share, please send an .mp3 or link to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a few lines about why you’ve chosen it. And if anyone has any Halloween worms, please send them in before Sunday 29 October. Many thanks to all contributors.
Flo Rida – Who’s With Me – AliM: Flo Rida is known mainly for hip-hop, R&B and rap; this isn’t particularly any of those things as far as I can tell. Or perhaps it’s all of them. Anyway, my son played it to me, and I have been humming it ever since.
Alasdair Roberts – False Lover John – severin: I sent in another track from this compilation a few years ago. “Revenge of the Folk Singers”, it’s called. Concerto Caledonia and five singers taking three or four songs each. This little number isn’t a track I have played very often but I heard it on shuffle recently and was very taken with it. The name of the other singer temporarily escapes me but her initials are Olivia Chaney.
John Prine – Hello In There – Ravi Raman: I’ve been bingeing on his music for some time now. And I found this terribly moving.
Aoife O’Donovan – Hornets – tincanman: Young(ish) Irish-American east coaster marries bluegrass and string folk and is starting to really hit her stride. One to watch.
